The United States of America is a nation in the south-central portion of North America. It is bordered to the south by the Confederate States of America, to the north, Canada, and Vancouver. The United States of America were fragmented at the end of the American Civil War, in 1864 into two nations, the United States, and the Confederate States. The nation struggled for a few years politically and economically, losing the breadbasket of the nation, and several major shipyards and ports. This loss spurred development in the Midwest, and the Atlantic States.

They remained neutral during World War I, but aided the Confederate States by patrolling some of their port cities to free up the Confederate Navy, and fought alongside the same nation in World War II, as well as allying with the CSA during the Cold War.

Today, the nation is a relatively powerful country, participating in the League of Nations, the Trans-Atlantic Defense Organization, the Group of 9, and a variety of other international organizations.

History

Government

The United States Government

Executive Branch

The Confederate States of America's executive branch is made up of the President of the Confederate States, as well as the cabinet officials. The President has a role similar to that of the President of the United States, although he has no control over the State Militias, he is Commander-in-Chief of the Confederate States Army, Navy, and Air Force.

Legislative Branch

The Legislative Branch is made up of the Confederate Senate, and the Confederate House of Representatives. The Senate is the upper branch, and the House is the lower branch. They are responsible for all laws passed in the nation, as well as declaration of war, passing a budget, foreign relations, and acting as an intermediary for state governments to make agreements.

The Confederate Senate has two members per state, with a total of forty-four Senators.

The Confederate House of Representatives has one member for every 250,000 citizens by state. There are currently 283 representatives in the nation. (The Indian Territory, with a population of 2,483,851; all Native Americans, receives no representation in either branch)

Judicial Branch

Voting

According to the revised Constitution of 1981, all people are given equal rights, although this is not enforced. It is common for voting officials to prevent the non-white population from voting, although the League of Nations and the United States have been pressing the nation to ensure this does not occur.

Demographics

Predominantly, the Confederate States are dominated by whites. There are significant black and Asian populations, especially in the cites. Today, 76% of Americans are White of European descent, 9.6% are of Asian descent, 8.5% are of African or Caribbean descent, 4.1% of the population is Native American, and 1.8% are of Spanish or Mexican descent.

Economy

The United States economy is quite diverse. Much of the northeast and northwest has heavy industry and manufacturing, while the Midwest is mainly rural and agricultural based.

Agriculture

Much of the Southern agriculture production revolves around corn, wheat, and other foodstuff products.

The United States ships tons of wheat and corn to the South in exchange for cotton. Much of the production remains in the nation for personal consumption.

The United States grows a good portion of food for the citizens, although it does rely on some imports from Canada, Brazil, and the Confederate States.

Manufacturing

Much of the American manufacturing is located around Pittsburgh, PA; Boston, MA; Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA; and Philadelphia, PA. There is a variety of heavy and light manufacturing located in other cities though.

Boeing manufactures military and aviation equipment for the USA as well as member states of the TADO alliance. They have designed the C-17, the C-18, and the C-46, as well as the F-15 Strike Eagle, the F/A-18 Hornet, and the F-20 Falcon fighter planes. They are based in Seattle, with major facilities in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and Chicago. There is also a major research facility in Pittsburgh.

Bethlehem Steel is an important steel producer and shipbuilder. They operate shipyards in Boston, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. The company produces most of the ships, boats, and submarines for the United States Navy and the United States Army. They also produce most of the steel used by the United States The company has steel mills in Bethlehem, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; and Danville, PA.

Technology

The hub of technology in the United States is in Boston, MA and Los Angeles, CA. There are over two hundred registered companies between the two cities, and more in the region. Scientists from the USA aided the Confederate States in developing the internet as a joint project during the Cold War as well as the development of stealth technology. There is internet access throughout most of the country and it is increasingly becoming a more common method of communication.

Trade

The primary trade partner of the United States is the Confederate States. This is due to the long border shared with the nation, as well as a common heritage, and alliances. Other major trade partners include the Kingdom of Prussia, Scotland, the United Kingdom, Brazil, China, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
