The United Provinces of America (U.P.A) is a member state of the British Empire and Commonwealth (B.E.C) located in North America. Founded as a sub autonomous nation of 18th century Great Britain the United Provinces of America developed as a powerful member of the British influenced world. Expanding from its core of the Atlantic Coast of North America the U.P.A covers the breadth of the continent to the Pacific and Arctic Oceans. Informally the U.P.A is referred to as British America or simply America. In its history the America benefited from British lead industrialization before becoming a technological leader in its own right. The culture of the U.P.A is a production of its colonial and industrial origins, being primarily influenced from Great Britain, West Africa and, Amerindiana. Historically America hosted strong facial and regional identities. However, in the present, British America has created its own national identity defined more by the country's place in the New World and the current role within the British Empire and Commonwealth than its colonial past. America is a key exporter of grain and petroleum and a long time manufacturing base both empire and world wide. Since the 2000's the U.P.A has boomed as world leader in hi-tech and internet technology.

History

Origins 1780-1820

Following the defeat of a local colonial uprising 1777, the British Government took steps to ensure that the colonies would not revolt again. The United Provinces of America were formed on April 16th, 1780, from the 13 colonies and the Districts (later Provinces) of Maine and Vermont. The new nation was founded as an autonomous dependency to the British crown.

Upon the signing of the Treaty of Philadelphia much of the colonial territory was still undeveloped, even unsettled in the case of the Appalachian Mountains. Much of this "open territory" was in reality inhabited by Amerindian or West Indian tribes. The frontiers were lawless. To maintain peace the first army of National Colonial regulars worked with Indians to preserve their ancestral homelands from the flow of pioneers. Such moves created the backdrop for the Second Colonial Rebellion led by the famous frontiersman Andrew Jackson. Through 1850 the frontiers of the U.P.A also continued to have designated penal which migrated north, and west steadily with expansion.

Close to the coast the societies and governments of all the colonies were distinct from each other. The challenge of the New Union was to unify the land under on set of standards while cutting Imperial expenses and allowing for a degree of autonomy.Like Great Britain the new American parliament created a two party system modeled after their London forebears. American Conservatives and Liberals diverged on issues of religious tolerance and trade. At the time these parties meant little to the majority of men still unable to vote due to land ownership quotas.

From the turn of the 19th century the fledgling American economy began to boom as the first manufacturing plants founded by British investors generated sales of finished goods abroad. Freer trade allowed colonists to profit from trade with the French and the Spanish. With security provided and deficits reduced, wealthy colonists began to theorize of new public projects to bring different but growing economies together.

A country of many worlds 1820-1860

Different regions spread out over a breath of continent developed into subcultures. National and Imperial administration were frustrated by these developments in implementing a common law throughout the land. The British parliament encouraged the localization to prevent a unified dissent. The United Provinces of America

Government and Politics

The executive is theoretically the monarch but the Governor-General holds most of the power. The President-General is always the leader of the majority party in the House of Commons. The Governor-General has been reduced to the eyes and ears of the monarch.

The judicial is the Judge's Council, which is composed by the Chief Justice from the supreme court of each province.

The legislative is the Parliament of America. It is bicameral. The lower, larger house is the House of Commons. The upper, smaller house is the House of Senators.
