In 2006 no decisions have yet been made on where the new capitols are to be placed. Provisionally, the congressmen and senators from the old U.S. government are seated in the 2 congresses, the old and the new. The highest-ranking person in presidential succession becomes president (based upon last residence), with new elections slated for 2008.
The two new countries are unsurprising, but I'll list them for the record. Federated States of America: New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Connecticut, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Virginia, Alabama, South Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Delaware, Wisconsin and Vermont. (26 former US states) Also holds DC, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands at the time of independence. Total population: 161 million?
Allied States of America: California, Texas, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Idaho, Hawaii, Montana, Alaska, and Wyoming. (24 former US states) Hold Guam, CMNI, and (Western) American Samoa as territories.
Total population: 120 million? too late to maths, tomorrow check
Here's the initial political breakdowns:
East: House, 1??D, 1??R, Senate 28D 24R - President Barack Obama (D) - enough for constitutional amendments.
West: House ??R ??D, Senate 25D, 23R - President ? (my first idea was kicked out by comments) waiting propositions(The map is my own work, seriously, based on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._by_population, some number like 5.9 become 6.)
The Allied states of America begin invasion of Canada.
