The United States is a largely agrarian nation. Although physically large, it is not powerful nor does it interfere in world affairs, similar to China and Japan. This isolationist status was declared by President Jimmy Carter in 1977 as repentance for the two Afro-American Wars and the presidencies of Strom Thurmond, Richard Nixon, and Spiro Agnew.
The United States declared its independence from Great Britain in 1776, and was recognized in 1783. By 1900, it was a major world power.
President Herbert Hoover's death at the hands of a mob in 1936 signaled the end of America's golden age. Hoover was blamed for the Great Depression, and was hated by the American people.
After Hoover's death, the United States withdrew from the Great War. Franklin Roosevelt, a reforming liberal president, was declared a Communist after three Presidencies, and lost the election to Thomas Dewey.
Dewey began a war to keep hold of America's three "tactical bases" in Africa- Liberia, Togoland, and Sierra Leone. This war was condemned by the FAL as a mere colonization effort, and the First Afro-American War ended in an African victory and several thousand American casualties.
After a period of reform under Adlai Stevenson, John Kennedy, Henry Wallace, and Hubert Humphrey, America came under the control of Richard Nixon. Nixon's most memorable act was his suicide, staged to look like an assassination by a FAL citizen. This enabled the Republican-Dixiecrat party to start another war in Africa.
The impeachment of President Agnew and Vice President Strom Thurmond marked the liberal shift in America. Fear of the Dixiecrats and Republicans provided for a long string of Democrat presidents: Carter, Mondale, Clinton, and the current President Gore. Both Clinton and Gore have promised to bring the United States farther into world affairs.
