Formation of the United Provinces

Following the eventual defeat of the Rebels in 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 to be formed, autonomous of, but still subservient to, the British Parliament, whose authority was still required on the more important matters of state.

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.
