The Treaty of Pottsville was signed between the Commonwealth of Susquehanna and Reading. The treaty was written up over a period of approximately five and a half months.

This treaty was seen as a landmark agreement for two Pennsylvanian survivor states. It set borders between the nations, provided for economical support to one another, and provisions to begin connecting infrastructure including more roadways and expanding the rail lines.

There are also provisions for collective defense and training of each nation's respective militaries and police forces.


After contact between Susquehanna and Reading began in late 2004 the governments of each respective nations had claims and territory in former Schuylkill County, and overlapping claims in Carbon County. Due to the distance between the nations, this was a nonissue and ignored. But after the Reading-Allentown War between Reading and the Allentown Mob, and Operation Retribution between Susquehanna and multiple gangs.
