state to leave the Union. It includes all of Virginia plus a part of former West Virginia.


Virginia was one of the original 13 Colonies, and the home state of 4 of the first 5 US Presidents. It was extremely important in American politics. When the Civil War broke out, much of the fighting occurred in Virginia, which was part of the Confederacy. They lost, but the battlefields and white supremacy remained. As the country began to fall apart in 1931, Virginia announced that it would be independent starting in the new year. The constitution was completed in 1933, and Claude A. Swanson was the first Virginian President. In 1936, Virginia intervened in the Great Lakes War, helping Kentucky and becoming allied with Pennsylvania. They also received a small portion of West Virginia as a result. 


The Virginia Military was helped because it inherited a lot of weaponry and equipment stationed at bases in Virginia. Virginia was a naval hub of the USA, in order to protect Washington DC, and as a result, Virginia's navy is better than its army.
