The Republic of Trenton is a survivor nation located on the Eastern Seaboard of the former United States formed by Italian-Americans.

History

Prior to Doomsday, the state of New Jersey was home to a large Italian-American population. After Doomsday, the state government of New Jersey collapsed under the pressure of refugees and fallout. Over the years, the Italian-American community built up a de facto independent nation in the former state capital of Trenton and the surrounding area in Mercer County. Finally, in 1996, the survivors declared the Republic of Trenton. In the early 2000s, the republic made expeditions into the former states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. In 2006, Trenton made contact with Aroostook and Superior, and in 2008 made contact with the ANZC.

Government

The Government of Trenton is a constitutional democratic republic based on the US model.The republic is divided into a federal structure with the former Mercer County townships serving as the basic federal units. The President is elected for two four-year terms. The legislative branch is divided into a House of Representatives (whose members are elected directly by the people) and the Senate (whose members are appointed by the governments of the townships). The Judicial branch has the same structure and purpose as in OTL. Law enforcement is carried out by the Trentonial National Police.

Culture

Since Doomsday, the society of Trenton has developed into a blend of American and Italian elements, reflecting the population's Italian heritage. Bilangualism is widespread and Italian cuisine is very popular. One negative aspect of Italian influence is the prescence of the Mafia, although efforts by the Trentonian National Police have succeeded in keeping the crime families in check.

Territory

The Republic of Trenton currently controls OTL Mercer County. It claims the entire state of New Jersey, although intense resistance by local warlords have prevented Trentonian authorities from actually enforcing these claims.
