The current year is 2026 and the Union has fallen apart... The fifty states now must fight for control for the one grenadier United States of America in the fifth installment of this great series. This game will go back to the roots of the franchise, and will be more focused on fun rather than on plausibility. This is not to say that the game will be total chaos, but we won't have it be as strict as some of the other games. Introducing Shattered Stars and Stripes: Make America Great Again.
- 2016: The election is insanely close. Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Virginia all go Blue, but the margin of victory is within 10 votes in all of the states. A 48 day battle in the Supreme court ends in deadlock, with conservative justices backing trump and the liberal justices backing Clinton. Eventually, the UN is called in to oversee a recount, that concludes in the favor of Clinton and Kaine.
- 2017: The Clinton Administration is insanely unpopular, and enters office with a 26% approval rating. Trump continues to spread allegations of election fraud, only further damaging the administrations legitimacy. Eventually, a special election headed by the Republican controlled congress finds that both Trump and Clinton are guilty of election fraud. Trump is convicted and sentenced to house arrest. Clinton faces impeachment.
- 2018: Hilary Clinton is impeached and convicted by Congress. Tim Kaine takes the office of presidency. The lack of faith in the administration only helps the republicans in the midterms, who's margin of Victory grows. Kaine enters office with 4% approval ratings, the lowest of any president in history.
- 2019: Kaine announces that he will not seek re-election in 2020
- 2020: Ryan vs Warren for the presidency. Ryan wins in one of the largest landslides in history, surppased only by the Reagan-Mondale landslide. Ryan's vp is selected as Massachussets Govener Charlie Baker.
- 2021: China’s economy overheats with GDP growth plummeting into the negatives, with the value of the RMB plummeting. This has a ripple effect, which cascades into throwing the world into another major recession. Unemployment reaches 15% within the United States and is coupled with skyrocketing prices upon many goods. Rising dissent occurs in the US, with several riots occurring and clashes between varied groups
- 2022: A massive, 9.4 Earthquake hits Central Mexico, effectivly collapsing the Mexican government. A refugee crisis occurs, with over 10 million Mexican Refugees making their way into the South West United States. This major migration only exacerbates the internal situation of the United States, with the already overburdened Federal government proving inept in handling this new calamity and dealing with the continuing economic problems. Efforts to provide relief to these refugees is met with outrage among many in the American public, who are just barely getting by themselves. When the Cartels begin to use the increasing lack of clear law and order within the Southwest to expand their operations (Thus bringing increased violence and drug problems), the Militia movement truly begins to explode in terms of members. Several bloody clashes occur along the border and within cities between fed up citizens and militia groups against the Cartels and the Mexican refugee
- 2023: Ryan's approval ratings sit at 30%, but the continuing economic crisis only worsens dissent.
- 2024: Vladmir Putin passes away peacefully. Russia falls into civil war between the various oligarchs who wish to take control. The Economic Crisis is only worsened. Ryan Wins Re-election with little difficulty.
- 2025: The Texan Govener attempts to use the state's military to "remove" the refugees from the southwest. The Federal government "removes" the Texan Govorner and places the territory under martial law.
- 2026: An Attempt is made on the life of Paul Ryan and Charlie Baker, who are forced to flee DC to surive. Ryan returns home to Wisconsin and Baker to Massachussets, but the resulting vaccum leaves the door open for a military coup, which sprials out of control. The states begin to declare indpendence and the military is broken up among the states. The federal government is effectivly disolved.

- The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as one of the major states in the former Union, declares itself the true sucessor to the Republic. Howeverm with numerous powerful states on our borders, espicially New York, we mobalize the national guard and establish a strong military presence in our cities. In addition to this, we start construction on a massive fort near the New York-Pennsylvania border intended to slow any advances from our adversaries. In light of the dissolution of the Union, the state declares an emergency and state-wide elections are to be suspended until 2030. Governor Thomas Corbett is retitled the President of Pennsylvania, although he is criticized by many across the state as he orders the dissolution of both Democratic and Republican parties, as they are blamed state-wide for the new crisis and dissolution of the union.
- New York: Upgrades its military capacity. We request a merger with New Jersey (Mod Response).We fight against loyalists.We declare ourselves the Federated States of New York (FSNY).We begin influencing Rhode Island (Turn 1 of ? Mods Needed)
- Even yes, odd no, New Jersey Accepts (10)
- New York D:New York welcomes the new state of New Jersey into the Federation.
- Masshole Dinplomacy: Would you like to become part and form a alliance of States with rebellious histories.
- Washington: With the collapse of the United States of America, the former US state of Washington effectively becomes the People's Republic of Washington, with the military standing at 176,000 active personnel, and all equipped with former US military equipment from Washington state. With this in mind, a military invasion of Oregon is launched to secure the state and integrate it into the newly founded nation, using a total of 120,000 troops to secure it. On the 17th of June of 2026, at 20:35 Pacific Standard Time, the initial push to the border begins, effectively beginning fighting in Portland, where the fighting is the most intense, St. Helens, in Umatilla, in Irrigon and in Columbia City, with hopes to reach Salem by year's end. Our Air Forces, meanwhile, begin a series of bombing runs and airstrikes across the border and surrounding areas south of it, and with hopes to extend the air strikes to Salem, which by year's end is expected to fall to Washington. Economic expansion begins with trade offers being extended to Alaska and Hawaii, and the newly established Politburo decides to place David Hans as General Secretary of the Communist Party of Washington and John O'Malley as Premier of the People's Republic of Washington. With the new government being established, the remainder of the troops, as well as local authorities begin to crack down on dissent, and Premier O'Malley decides to order the creation of the State Security Bureau (SSB) as both a secret police and a convert agency of the new government. In addition, the Ministries are established: Interior, Defense, Foreign Affairs, Economics, Industry, Transportation, Telecommunications, Science and Welfare, all with established purposes to manage key aspects of the nation, ensure that Washington can prosper and keep enemies in line, both internal and external.
- 176k is your max man power assuming you are land based.
- I can fix that.
- Massachusetts: With Vice President Baker, home the current governor seeks Political ties with the local governments of New England. We call upon the states of Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and New York to form a political and military alliance called the New England Alliance. This alliance is to unite the USA under democracy again and stop communism or neo-fascism from rising in the nation. If any government obeys by the laws of Marx or Mussolini shall be regarded as a threat to the very way of American life. We would like to host this meeting in Boston to confirm if so, (Mod Response for the non player nations). We ask to become friends and allies of the fellow Commonwealth of the Pennsylvania as we share common goals of democracy and unity. We begin to consolidate our nation and begin mobilizing a small force of about 75,000 soldiers. We request the citizens of Massachusetts who own a fire arm either turn it in for military use, or if one has had experience with such a weapon to join the local militia. In Concord the "New Minutemen" are formed by a group of local conservatives and police members. THis shall be our home guard as the National Guard has been reformed into the State Army.
- Connecticut: No
- New Hampshire: Yes
- Rhode Island: No
- Mississippi: The provisional government of Mississippi is formed following the chaos that ensued after the collapse of the federal government in Washington, D.C.. A group of totalitarians known as the "Dirigists" have gained power in Jackson, and have purged the remaining political groups that sought to gain control over the state and its resources. Utilizing its core of hardline supporters, the Dirigists under the leadership of Ophelia Hekate Morgan have completely taken over the government of Mississippi, and replaced the militia forces of the state with dirigist paramilitary members. Moving quickly, the new government implements several policies drawn up during the period of unrest, overhauling the government, military, economy, and legal system along strict dirigist lines. One of the first state-wide policies of the government is "Project Bond", a program that will have all citizens of the state given electronic chips that will monitor their locations, health, and emotions, though this is what is told to more moderate member of the government, while citizens are simply told that following the events of the brutality of the post-collapse years, all citizens will be chipped to ensure that the state can provide emergency services to the most vulnerable members of society. However, within the inner circle of the government, these chips are in-fact slave implants, a new technology that was developed by the party to control prisoners of war. The slave chips are implanted into 25% of the population, mostly men and women between the ages of 18-30, and more are slated to be implanted into additional individuals in the coming years. Supreme Director Hekate announces an ambitious population growth plan known as the "Creche Project". 150,000 female citizens are evaluated for their reproductive potential, while only 10,000 male citizens are chosen for the same reasons. Each woman will contribute five eggs for in vitro fertilization, with the eggs of 15 women being fertilized per each male candidate for the program, or 75 eggs per man. A total of 1,000 facilities known as "creches", shall be established throughout the nation, and will each be tasked with raising 750 children each throughout Mississippi. This ambitious program is expected to provide 750,000 able-bodied citizens to the state within a period of eighteen years. Using the slave chips to control the female population, a caste of caregivers will be established, allowing for the state to have a loyal army of up-bringers and mentors who will help forge the first generation of "pure dirigists". Hekate declares that Mississippi shall bide its time, establishing itself within the region and preparing for its first steps for future endeavors in the region. Reconstruction of infrastructure damaged during the violence becomes a major focal point of the government's plans, and re-training and expansion of the military also takes precedence in the plans of the state. The troops are mobilized and ordered into the state of Arkansas, where the Dirigists hope to gain additional manpower for the future plans the government has for the region.
- Floridan Diplomacy: Particularly impressed by the policies adopted by the Dirigist government, President Will sent an envoy to Mississipi to secure an alliance.
- Mississippian Diplomacy: Mississippi would be delighted to entertain an alliance with Florida.
- California: With the dissolution of the United States Federal Government, Governor Elon Musk declares a state of emergency and enacts martial law upon California, and as the Governor Musk is Commander and Chief of the armed forces, and he orders all near by armed forces to surround the California State Capitol and demands that the California State Legislator surrenders to him, and they do. With their surrender, Elon Musk addresses the State Legislator, and all the citizens of California, declaring the state of California as an independent nation state, the New California Republic, and declares Elon Musk as President of the New California Republic. President Musk then dissolves the legislator, stating that Democrats and Republicans alike have doomed the United States at the federal level, and it was time for a new era of leadership to be put into power, thus Musk installed various CEOs and CFOs from tech companies into government, including Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Mark Zuckerberg, and Tim Cook. With our neighbors Oregon and Nevada being invaded, President Musk reorganizes, trains, expands, and invests in the Californian Army, declaring himself as the Supreme Commander of the Californian Armed Forces, expanding the active military to 250,000 troops and the reserves to 820,000 troops,in order to protect California and its neighbors from all foreign threats, including the Mexican Drug Cartels, thus 50,000 troops are sent to the Californian-Mexican border to combat the Drug Cartels along with 10,000 police forces from Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Diego county and they join local militias that are fighting the Cartels. President Musk also states that Mexican refugees who join the fight against the Cartels shall be granted Californian citizenship, as well as their immediate family members. President Musk recieves news of the People's Republic of Washington invasion of the soveirgn state of Oregon, and thus we declare war on Washington for invading Oregon, and 100,000 troops are sent through Oregon, and a campaign is launched to capture Columbia from Washington, then the advance continues to capture Irrigon, Umatilla, St. Helen's, and Portland from the People's Republic of Washington. Simultaneously, we open up a new front on Washington by launching an amphibious invasion upon the port city of Seattle with 100,000 troops, and 1,000 ships and in the event of the successful capture of Seattle, Californian troops are ordered to advance to the capital city of Olympia, and along the way capture SeaTac, Kent, and Tacoma, five cities in all. With Oregon being invaded by the People's Republic of Washington, we request that Oregon joins the New California Republic, and that we will be stronger together, for California has the largest GDP and the greatest military in the former United States. Meanwhile, President Musk embarks on an ambitious domestic program to greatly increase Californian infrastructure and technology, with transportation such as the Hyperloop, an extremely fast bullet train, the Musk electric jet engine. Space X operations are also expanded, with a goal to reach Mars. These infrastructure projects employ many people in the nation, and leads to economic growth and employment. Public works projects are also enacted to further improve the infrastructure of California. The Universal Basic Income is enacted, education is reformed to make it more effective to educate, and healthcare is granted as a universal right in California.
- Illinois: With the fall of America, Robert Falls is elected to the position of Governor now in his fifties but originally a veteran of Iraq in the 2010's declares a state of emergency and while does not declare a secession from the United States he does argue that a state has a right to defend itself and so while using the remains of the Guard and all soldiers who have returned home plus a large scale recruiting campaign we create an army of 300,000 armed largely from Rock Island Arsenal and privately owned weapons and with the men being trained at NS Great Lakes while Scott Air force base and all of it's equipment is secured. Governor Falls declares elections for that the state will continue to have elections all the same positions with the exclusions of congressman and senators. In the economy we now free of other states take all foreign state owned corporations and give them back to business leaders within Illinois as well as making unemployment illegal and they are all drafted into a government infrastructure program to build a number of new factories. We offer an alliance of trade, military defence and cooperation with Michigan and Indiana (Mod response needed for Indiana). We also declare war on Missouri in support of Kansas in the battle for Kansas city. Our reason being both that Missouri is clearly unfairly holding Kansas city but they are also unfairly holding St Louis. We send 200,000 to cross the Mississippi at Clarksville and push in land to Bowling Green and then Mexico, Missouri while avoiding major cities but to seek out the Missouri forces in battle. We will make peace with them if they surrender St Louis, St Louis county and St Charles county. (Mod response required)
- Michigan accepts the alliance.
- Deseret: The leadership of Utah is usurped by the almighty Church of the Latter Day Saints. We declare it the national, required religion of our state, and Thomas S. Monson is declared Almighty Prophet of God. As we see the large population of Mormons in Northern Idaho, we spread preachers and zealots for unity under the beehive banner. We begin spreading the evangelism of uniting the promised land of Deseret into Nevada, who was promised to us, particularely to Las Vegas, the former Mormon fort, now turned to debauchery and lust. We request Mormons across the US to support our cause and begin preaching for our faith across the Rocky Mountains. We begin improving our infrastructure again, and begin a review on coffee to see it's compatibility with the Desereti goals.
- Texas: With the US all but dead, we throw off the chains of the former military government. Former governor Ted Cruz ascends to the presidency as interim president indefinately until peace is restored to the nation. Work on drafting a constitution based off that of the old united states, and declare ourselves the Second Republic of Texas. We offer that Oklahoma join our republic, noting the belligerent Kansas above them as well as our superior economic capabilities. While the government stabalizes and a large military is formed, militias, both of the White Nationalist and Libertarian kind, roam the countryside. Mass deportations of Mexican immigrants continues. Believing the cartels are taking hold in neighboring New Mexico, we invade with a force of about 100.000, with 10.000 in militiamen joining the fight. We work on restoring our nuclear power plants to full capacity. We propose an alliance to Deseret.
- The government of the Theocracy of Deseret and Almighty Prophet of God Thomas S. Monson recognizes the Second Republic of Texas and accepts the alliance as to further the strength of Christianity and religion.
- Masshole Diplomacy: Would Texas consider becoming part of a new alliance which would bring the old American freedoms back to the country and prevent these communists like the cooks in Washington and the neo-monarchists in Minnesota from controlling our great nation.
- Florida: With the collapse of the Federal Government, Governor Will Weatherford declared a state of emergency, and enacted martial law in the state of Florida. Keen on retaining control over the state, the Governor purged competing political parties and paramilitary groups in order to ensure his total sway over Floridan territories. The Floridan State Army would in turn proceed to surround Tallahassee, and the former Florida state legislators would be eliminated in a symbolic move to announce the ushering of a New World Order. In the following turn of events, the Governor addressed a massive crowd at Tallahassee and proclaimed himself the President of Florida and Supreme Commander of its armed forces whilst the thousands of people cheered on, awed at the sight of their marvelous supreme leader. With the effective establishment of a new government, President Will implemented a series of reforms to overhaul the system, drawing parallels to the policies adopted in Mississippi. In addition, the Ministries for Interior, Defense, Foreign Affairs, Economics, Industry, Transportation, Telecommunications, Science and Welfare were established, all with established purposes to manage key aspects of the nation, ensuring that the state would prosper. In regards to security in particular, the Federal Security Force (FSF) was established, acting as a secret police and espionage agency with their primary objective being cracking down on local dissent and thwarting any threat to the state whilst simultaneously destroy foreign spy networks. Keen on wiping out any resistance, the President employed as many as 10,000 men in the Federal Security Force and made sure that members of the agency would not be subject to any punishment even in cases where suspected rebels were subjected to unwarranted torture. About around the same time, the President mobilized the state military and kept it on high alert, sharply observing the neighbouring states of Alabama and Georgia. Feeling the moment was right, the President gave the green light and the military, roughly around 250,000 men invaded the state of Alabama, hoping to annex it into Florida.
- United Alaska: The new state is put in a weird place as Loyalist try to keep the state loyal to DC (most of them being rich or high class) with most of them taking arms from the city of Kenia to march on Palmer but while on march a group of Ex National Guards (Alakians) open fired killing 50 loyalist and causing a stand off for 2 hours before a fire fight happened pushing back the Alaskians, While in Juenau protest are held (that fell into riots) with them demanding to leave the Union. In Rural areas gun men take army and join with the Alaskians) with their leader "Mike Green" saying "The US lost their way, and we have to leave."
- Michigan declares itself a republic, and begins working to establish itself in the new political climate of the former USA. We begin working on producing self-driving cars in Detroit, with the BIg Three leading the way in partnership with Google to advance Michigan in this field. (OOC:HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE) The army is set at roughly 30,000 men, with work beginning on factories to mass produce tanks and other military vehicles. Traverse City, Muskegon and Marquette become centres of the Michigan Navy, which is mainly a coastal navy. Michigan currently aims to create the largest coastal navy in the world, as we have the largest freshwater coastline in the former US. Maintaining such a navy would be key to securing our independence. In the Upper Peninsula, as some are aware of the acute possibility that it may try to break away, a diplomatic program begins to encourage unity between the UP and the LP. Michigan's new flag is made to reflect this, and is the two peninsula Michigan outlined in blue, with the great lakes in white. Having secured an alliance with Illinois, we start planning on ensuring our influence in Lake Michigan is established, and forts are built along the the Wisconsin border. We open diplomatic relations with Canada, and also send envoys to Pennsylvania and New York, to open relations.
- Colorado: We issue a draft to expand our military forces to 100,000. We work on building a sustainable infrastructure. Denver is declared capital, and socialism is becoming popular in the nation. The nation also seeks to annex Utah. We begin raiding Utah as a show of force.
- The Great Desereti State requests the Coloradans to stop these attacks IMMEDIATELY, as these infringe upon the godly rights. We also remind Colorado of Deseret's alliance with Texas.
- Minnesota: After the break up of the USA, minnesota is left unsure of what to do. A refendrum is held to decide the governmential system of Minnesota, one party the NMMP (Nationalist Monarchists of Minnesota Party) calls for a monarchy to retain our new found freedom from the imperialists of the East and the west. Out of all polls a constitutional monarchy wins. Who shall become our king is undecided and a poll will be held. We ask South Dakota and North Dakota for a merger to protect ourselves from imperialists promising local autonomy and freedom of government Mod Response. A buildup of military begins across the state to protect us.
- Rejected for both.
- The Most Glorious Republic of Virginia expands it army to include 200,000 men. Armed at the teeth, the Nation commences and invasion of South Carolina, Storming Charlestown, Myrtle Beach, and George Town. Meanwhile, the nation looks for a diplomatic alliance with Pennsylvania and Florida. Although offically a republic, the nation is ruled by a Triumverate of political elite. President Tim Kaine is made president of the nation, although he rules a puppet of the Triumverate.
Unwilling to fight Illinois, Kansas withdraws its forces from Kansas City.
A glitch in the system, or some other complication, causes the death of rougly 2,000 Mississippian Soliders
Washington faces near collapse in the face of Californian invasions.
Now that New York has a signifigant manpower advantage, Pennslyvania gains a major enemy bonus against New York.
As a hint to players, the more peaceful mergers requested, the less likely they are to be accepted.
- The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with numerous powerful states on our borders, espicially New York, we mobalize the national guard and establish a strong military presence in our cities. In addition to this, we start continue on a massive fort near the New York-Pennsylvania border intended to slow any advances from our adversaries. In light of the dissolution of the Union, the state declares an emergency and state-wide elections are to be suspended until 2030. Governor Thomas Corbett is retitled the President of Pennsylvania, although he is criticized by many across the state as he orders the dissolution of both Democratic and Republican parties, as they are blamed state-wide for the new crisis and dissolution of the union. We ask for a union with Maryland. We mobalize 50,000 troops on our southern border.
- Maryland: Rejects (1)
- The Federal Republic of Michigan is officially formed, and the first President is Michael K. Mason. He starts a program designed to ensure that Michigan's place in the former US is assured. To do so, the Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior is converted into a naval base (Edge, you have labeled the island as part of Minnesota when it should be part of Michigan on the map). While still open the public, other parts of the island are closed off, and this is where construction on the naval base is going on. To ensure that Lake Michigan is acknowledged as an area of Michigan influence, 15,000 men mount a swift and limited invasion of Wisconsin from across the lake, aiming to capture the city of Green Bay and create an independent protectorate. The invasion begins with an aerial assault upon the Green Bay area, followed by a naval assault. 500 tanks are being used in the assault, and our navy swiftly moves to implement blockades of the Wisconsin coastline, aiming to destroy the Wisconsin navy while it is in port. Our navy consists of roughly 30 ships, with over a third of that number being gunboats. The landings are mainly in the Door Peninsula. Meanwhile, a limited offensive of 2,000 men is launched at Oconto, aiming to set up a base from which a successful attack can be launched on Green Bay.
- United Alaska: The new state is put in a weird place as Loyalist try to keep the state loyal to DC (most of them being rich or high class) with most of them taking arms from the city of Kenia to march on Palmer but while on march a group of Ex National Guards (Alakians) open fired killing 50 loyalist and causing a stand off for 2 hours before a fire fight happened pushing back the Alaskians, While in Juenau protest are held (that fell into riots) with them demanding to leave the Union. In Rural areas men take guns and take on army and join with the Alaskians with their leader "Mike Green" saying "The US lost their way, and we have to leave." The Civil War begins to ramp up as the Loyalist begin to bomb rebel held areas with the old US stockpile. A army of loyalist lay seigh on the rebel city of Palmer while in rural areas a army begin to march to free Palmer. In Jeuno riots turn into streets battles as rebels and loyalist fight in the city
- Colorado: We announce peace with Utah. We begin a Government program to send our Mormon population to Utah. We offer a defensive pact with Utah and Colorado. We declare The Greater Social Republic of Colorado. Our standing army stands at 100,000, but we have a Peoples Militia that has 150,000 armed men in case of invasion. Our Grand Leader, Michael Hancock is consolidating his power across the country. We issue job offers across the Country, to fully modernize Denver and make it a "Smart City." **Secret We begin building a massive bunker for our Grand Leader
- Texas continues its occupation of New Mexico. Ted Cruz begins to solidify the government. Three political parties begin to form. The former republicans break in two, Freedom, which harbors much of what was once known as the Alt-Right, White Nationalists, National Conservatives, and Evangelicals. The Libertarians absorb the much of Moderate republicans. The Democrats try and push to the right wing, while keeping control of the Latino base. Mass deportations continue, and people accused of working with cartels, legal or not, are either deported or incarcerated. We tell Colorado that if they continue their raids against the lawful people of Deseret, we will be forced to intervene. Work on restoring Nuclear power plants throught the nation continue, as does revitalizing the US nuclear arsenal in Texas. We ask Oklahoma if they would join our lawful republic, promising economic stability and protection from the violent Coloradan and Kansas states that surround it. (Edge Plz).
- Oklahoma accepts (6)
- Colorado Diplomacy: We halt attacks on Utah and we send aid workers to repair the infrastructure we destroyed. We consider joint a defense pact with Texas and Utah, but hope that Utah abandons religious extremism
- Masshole Diplomacy We request a alliance with Texas against fascism and communism in our fair lands.
- Texas agrees and thanks Colorado for ending the attacks, however we will wait on utah for the defense pact
- Massachusetts We begin to prepare for any military campaign. We ask Rhode Island to be annexed by Massachusetts (Mod Response plz). We would like to form a alliance with New York against the quasi-fascist expansionism of Pennsylvania. We recognize the expansionist nature of Pennsylvania and do not recognize their claim as the legitimate government of the USA. Massachusets will not settle with the fascist similar to King George III of the olden days. We wish to give New York 2,000 weapons from the Springfield armory and a small fleet of Humvees as a token of friendship between our two states.
- Rhode Island rejects (3)
- New York D:Welcomes an alliance.
- Republic of America: With the successful annexation of Alabama, President Weatherford announced the establishment of the Republic of America, a new nation born amongst the ashes of the union. One of the first executive decisions made by the President included the movement of the capital from Tallahassee to Montgomery, a decision made to ensure that the capital maintained a central geographic position. Meanwhile, keen on extending his influence and control throughout the South, the President held a meeting with his top officials, detailing plans to invade and annex multiple states in order to strengthen the new Republic. With assurances recieved from military officials that the plan was completely plausible, the state mobilized its military, deploying 250,000 troops at its Northern border, mostly concentrated in Leon, Jefferson, Madison, Gadsden and Jackson districts. Simultaneously, 50,000 troops; primarily Alabaman prisoners of war were incorporated into the 175,000 troops that had been previously deployed at Alabama, totalling 225,000 soldiers who were deployed at the Eastern border, concentrated in Cleburne, Randolph, Chambers and Cherokee districts. These troops were further reinforced by multiple armoured divisions as well as air force units on both fronts. Upon finally recieveing the signal, the launched simultaneous assaults upon the state of Georgia, with 250,000 invading Georgia from the South whilst 225,000 invaded from the East; a blitzkrieg strategy employed to ensure that the Republic dominated the region. The Republic navy was simultaneously deployed to impose a blockade on Georgian shores, with roughly 7,500 ships participating. Meanwhile, the Federal Security Force played a marvelous role in cracking down on dissent, showcasing a massive downfall in crime and illicit activities whilst destroying foreign spy networks. About around the same time, President Weatherford expressed interest in further incorporating Dirigism into the Republic and hence sent a diplomat to Mississipi in order to learn about the policies adopted by Ophelia, the Mississippian tyrant.
- Mississippian Diplomacy (Hekate): I am delighted that you have seen the dark truth and accepted it as such. I would be happy to It would be an honor to give a tour to your diplomat. I wish for him to see in full the law, order and efficiency Dirigism has provided to the Mississippi, Arkansas, and soon, Tennessee as well.
- Kingdom of Minnesota: After a heated debate of who should become king of Minnesota and a public refendrum the german prince Friedrich von Wurrtemberg is invited to the throne and subsequently crowned. Despite being a german prince the language barrier proves no problem for him and he speaks to his people describing his dream to unite the American states under the Minnesotan banner. He takes the populist title King of all Minnesotans. With the rejection of our generous offer we declare war on North Dakota and invade them with 80,000 men.
- Illinois: The initial invasion having been successful we follow up with more attacks and if successful we bring Missouri as a vassal to Illinois.The old politics of Illinois is removed with Governor Falls establishing the New Union Party as the main dominant force with most of the more popular politicians joining it though no major elections are being held right now so people are unsure who will vote, we keep a drive on building up industry and supporting our troops across the border.
- Republic of Iowa: River City is made the capital of the new republic, with the former mayor and city board elevated to executive and legislative over the whole nation. The nation is mostly serene, with very little internal strife or any trouble at all. A small militia is established to ensure protection of the borders. Trade is established with Illinois, asking to sell anvals and corn.
- Illinois dip: We agree to trade lots.
- California: With the People's Republic of Washington on its last legs the Californian Army advances down Olympia into Vancouver with a force of 100,000 troops, meeting the last pocket of Communist Washingtonian resistance. President Musk is disappointed with Oregon's decline of union, as we have saved them from Washington. We request Arizona to be incorporated into California in order to help us combat the Mexican Drug Cartels, for we have successfully driven them back. We also request that Nevada be incorporated into California in order to help them defend against the Deserti invasion. Meanwhile, infrastructure development continues and the economy grows significantly. We are victorious against the Washington Communists and we annex Washington into the New California Republic, and now our population is 45,862,000 and we celebrate our first victory in warfare in this dangerous new era. Yes, we are certainly strong, and thus we deserve to live.
- Arizonia Rejects (9)
- Nevada Rejects (5)
- OOC Deseret: I haven't invaded Nevada. ~Wolves
- Deseret: We continue spreading the evangelism of uniting the promised land of Deseret into Nevada, who was promised to us, particularely to Las Vegas, the former Mormon fort, now turned to debauchery and lust. We request Mormons across the US to support our cause and begin preaching for our faith across the Rocky Mountains. We begin improving our infrastructure again, and begin a review on coffee to see it's compatibility with the Desereti goals. We secretly contact the Californian Republic with an offer: If we can get Nevada (or at least its east), we will drop any and every claim from California that Deseret has and not send any missionaries to California. SECRET END. We garrison our border with Colorado and place several mines and bombs to prevent Coloradoan raiding. We continue to spread evangelism of Deseret to the Mormons of Idaho. We will accept oeace with the Coloradoans and a peace coalition to keep the peace in the Rocky Mountains.
- Mississippi: With the subjugation of Arkansas, the Mississippian troops apprehend the locals wherever they can be found, and have them chipped and processed into the nation. Those able-bodied men and women capable of fighting are processed into the soldiery caste, while all other civilians are placed into supporting roles. With access to more manpower, the Creche Program is expanded into Arkansas, and another 750,000 eggs fertilized by the state as part of the program. The gene-editing tool known as CRIPSR is utilized by the government to alter the psychological processing methods of the new offspring, making them more docile and receptive to their government. Slight alterations are also made to the stature and physicality of embryos slated to be raised as members of the soldiery caste. Supreme Director Hekate is outfitted with a master chip, the process having been staled by Hekate herself until the results from the slave/master chips of the military were back in. With the malfunctioning of the 2,000 military-grade slave chips recovered and studied, the intelligentsia caste pinpointed and resolved the issues in the chips, and delivered their results to Hekate. Prior testing of the chips during the instability years prior to 2026 were done under less stressful conditions, and the actual testing in combat conditions have helped to produce vital feedback that was needed to finally fix the unknown variables and potential failure rates in the chips. With this information now in hand, all major issues in the chips have been fixed, and the chips now have a 0.031% failure rate, and Hekate has finally be fitted with her master chip, giving her direct and absolute control over all citizens of the state. And so as to prevent the gruesome death that happened to the soldiers, Hekate's chip is fitted with a special safety function, that will absorb the lethal nervous system shock, and prevent her from dying if the chip does malfunction. With her will now absolute, Hekate seeks to take over the state of Tennessee, hoping to add additional slaves to her empire, and forging the nation her father had planned for. Additional creches are built in the nation, and the infrastructure expanded to help facilitate production and expansion of the state. The integration of Arkansas population has forced the government to see to it that it is fully prepared for the subjugation and integration of Tennessee, and thus the roads, bridges, electric stations, and sewage systems throughout the region controlled by the dirigists are renovated and expanded by the state. In other news, Hekate has declared that her nation shall henceforth be known as the Amalgamated Bloc of Dirigist States, or simply the Dirigist Bloc.
- Virginia renames itself the Allied States of America, and launches an invasion of North Carolina to solidify control over the mid South. The newly formed ASA offers (in secret) the nation of Mississippi an alliance against potential Flordian agression, citing that the nation has taken over the other two regional powers and could very easily take over Mississippi. Brigader General Steven T Scott, Police Cheif Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, and Scretary General Kelly Thomasson rule the state as a political triumverete, with former US President Kaine ruling as a puppet of these three. The war plan with North Carolina is to split the invading force is split into 3 to capture key locations in North Carolina, including Military Bases and Highways.
- Mississippian Diplomacy: Mississippi accepts the Allied States request for a defensive pact. We shall hold you to account should you betray us.
- FSNY:New York upgrades its military.We state to all nations that we will not attack unless provoked.
We continue influencing Rhode Island (Turn 2 of 3) This is not a thing this game, it will not become a thing this game.
- Lousiana requests merger with Arkansas.
If you are a player nation, and haven't picked concentrations by the end of this turn, you will be removed from your nation. Algo reforms will be up today or tommorow. They are minor tweaks, but they will be abided by.
Remeber, you have to attempt your own algos.
The Government of Brazil, faced with economic hardship and corruption, faces a coup. The Coup sprials into a civil war, and hundreds of thousands of refugees flood the American South.
- Massachusetts: With the repeated failures to align or annex Rhode Island, we mobilize 20,000 soldiers and attack across the border aiming at Providence and Newport. On popular opinion the Commonwealth of Massachusetts renames itself the New England Republic. The Republic will have two main parties. The Liberals and the Tea Party. Almost by a landslide Tea Party politician Bruce Tarr is elected president of the Republic. We also attempt to jumpstart our economy by preparing an arms manufacturing plant in Springfield. We annex Rhode Island into the NER, automatically to adjust former Rhode Islanders to life in the NER they gain voting rights and citizenship and free travel. We set up Providence as the capital of the county of Northern Rhode.
- Deseret: We continue spreading the evangelism of uniting the promised land of Deseret into Nevada, who was promised to us, particularely to Las Vegas, the former Mormon fort, now turned to debauchery and lust. We request Mormons across the former US to support our cause and begin preaching for our faith across the Rocky Mountains. We begin improving our infrastructure again, and begin a review on coffee to see it's compatibility with the Desereti goals. We accept the peace and alliance with the Coloradoans. We continue to spread evangelism of Deseret to the Mormons of Idaho.
- North Carolina: With the recent collapse, North Carolina is renamed the "Carolina Republic", and we offer South Carolina a union, noting the common history and the name we share as Carolinas. The formation of a new military and identity begins. A suprisingly liberal government takes office after the failure of the conservative government to handle the collapse better, marking a new outlook by the Republic. Troops secure the borders, and we concentrate our forces on land for the moment, seeing the sea as a second role compared to securing our new nation. We offer Georgia a defensive pact. We begin to fight back Virginias offensive, using all of the latest weaponry left in stock, and launching fighters at Richmond and Norfolk. Troops defend the northern border, and we call for South Carolina to join with us in earnest to protect both North Carolina and our southern brother
- Uhhh Virginia already owns South Carolina..
- Republic of America: Much to President Weatherfords surprise, the blitzkrieg strategy employed by the Republican army worked quite efficiently, resulting in Valdosta, Savannah, Columbus, Dalton and Rome falling within a few months. These string of victiories ensured that the Republican military would be poised to take Augusta and Atlanta with little to no difficulty, and after recieving clearance to launch the final assault, both cities were simultaneously attacked and captured. With a practical union established between the former US states of Florida, Georgia and Alabama, President Weatherford started a series of reforms, keen on pooling together the resources of each individual state and using them to benefit the Republic. Of particular concern was the agricultural and dairy product output which was seen as an untapped potential that the Republic held, something that could turn it into an economic powerhouse. As such, prime importance was given to the production of cotton, tobacco, oranges, vegetables, peanutes etc as well as the sale of livestock and their respective dairy products. Simultaneously, Georgia's textile and mining industry were expanded to increase annual output whilst the production of phosphate in Florida was further enlarged to ensure greater revenue. Mining of coal and limestone was similarly promoted in Alabama as it had played an integral role in its economy. Meanwhile, the sudden inflow of Brazilian refugees was welcomed by the Republic, but was well-maintained and regulated to ensure that all incoming refugees were recorded in the files, with the FSF playing a major role to prevent any major refugee crisis. Whilst the refugees may have seen the open border policy as an act of goodwill on the part of the President, it was in fact a decision made to fill up the labour force in Florida, with every other able-bodied refugee being forced to enter the mining industry. Any refugee incapable of doing work or otherwise crippled was systematically deported to prevent anyone from becoming a burden for the state. About around the same time, military facilities, roads, bridges and electric stations throughout the Republic were developed and expanded with any damage dealt to them during the war repaired. Finally, at the end of the year, President Weatherford announced that Dirigism would officially be the state ideology of the Republic of America.
- The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with numerous powerful states on our borders, especially New York, we mobalize the national guard and establish a strong military presence in our cities. In addition to this, we start continue on a massive fort near the New York-Pennsylvania border intended to slow any advances from our adversaries. In light of the dissolution of the Union, the state declares an emergency and state-wide elections are to be suspended until 2030. Governor Thomas Corbett is retitled the President of Pennsylvania, although he is criticized by many across the state as he orders the dissolution of both Democratic and Republican parties, as they are blamed state-wide for the new crisis and dissolution of the union. We mobilize another 50,000 troops on our southern border.
- Texas: The influx of Brazillian and other Latinamerican peoples further legitimizes the Alt-right, and the Freedom party explodes in numbers. Pressure on Ted Cruz forces his hand in authorizing even more deportations, and some suggest a wall. The white nationalist militias begin to organize better,and the KKK of old explodes in numbers. As people begin to prepare for the next election, parties begin to make their picks. The Libertarian Party had George P. Bush and John Wilford running from the moderate end, with the more extreme and minarchist side split among many fringe candidates. The Freedom party candidacy was more interesting. While career politicians Ted Cruz (incumbent) and Louie Gohmert were originally expected to sweep, two surprise candidates entered the scene. The first, coming from an economic populist edge, was son of former outsider candidate Ross Perot, Ross Perot Jr. He stole much of the rhetoric of the late Donald Trump and his own Father, and attempted to appeal to the growing white nationalist base against the hordes of latino immigrants. What shocked the nation more was the declaration of canidacy by former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo, which among other debates, started a birther one, as he was born in Louisiana. The Democrat-Progressive front is looking to nominate Julian Castro, former San Antonio mayor. Three Dirigist, Socialist, and Mutualist parties form, neither of the three expected to gain much in the coming election at all. Outside of politics, New Mexico is completely subjugated and added to the republic, forming 4 administrative divisions. Oklahoma is also officially added and spit in two, Oklahoma and Sequoyah. We continue revitalizing our nuclear power plants and establish a new base on the NM/Arizona border. We welcome Colorado into our alliance with us and Deseret, and thank them for the cesation of hostilities with Deseret.
- The Federal Republic of Michigan sends reinforcements to fight in the Door Peninsula War, with the standing army now at 40,000 men. Over half of that number are committed to fighting in the war, with 5,000 invading from the Upper Peninsula to strike right at Green Bay, while another 15,000 are storming through the countryside in a massive encirclement, with the aim of closing off the Door Peninsula from the rest of Wisconsin.
- California-Washington: We welcome the Mexican, Brazilian, and other Latin American refugees with open arms, especially the ones who are deported by Texas, and we set up towns to give them aid and schools to help them integrate into Californian society and become productive citizens of California by contributing their valuable ideas and labor skills to California, and education is expanded to all citizens so that they may be the best people they can be and benefit everyone, and most of the workforce is dedicated to improve the infrastructure of California as well as improve its technology. Infrastructure is also improved in Washington, and a separate army is made for Washington, with a standing army of 150,000 and 26,550 in reserve. Meanwhile, the troops return home and President Musk is enraged that all diplomatic attempts of unification have failed, and he realizes now that the only path of unification is through force and the only way to survive is through strength, and Arizona is deemed to be too weak to survive the endless onslaught of Drug Cartels, thus to protect Arizona from her own weakness we declare war on Arizona and invade it with 200,000 troops from Blythe, CA and invade Quartzsite, Brenda, Glendale, Phoenix, and Scottsdale. We are victorious against Arizona, and thus we have annexed Arizona into California, adding 6,731,000 to the population, making our population 52,593,000 people in total. We clear out the Cartels and rebuild Arizona's infrastructure, and send 200,000 troops to the Arizona-New Mexico border.
- Illinois: We annex Missouri and maintain all of it's counties and local offices while merging their positions of state level governance into Illinois with the cabinets being merged and the state assembly. Meanwhile we stand our troops down in peacetime and hold our positions allowing our troops levels to recover. While we work on improving the Missouri economy as well as our own.
- Dirigist Bloc: Brazilians attempting to land in the Dirigist Bloc are quickly apprehended by the Soldiery caste, and relocated to processing centers to be integrated into the nation. Thousands of Brazilians are enslaved by the Dirigists, and many who are too old to serve any function in society are "liquidated" by the military forces. Many thousands of Brazilians have been incorporated into the Dirigist Bloc as citizens, though many more were killed off as a burden to national resources. Elsewhere, the generation of creche-born offspring in the nation have been subjected to another round of CRIPSR modifications, this time to make the slave chips a redundant feature in the physiology of the citizenry. An artificial organ which serves as an organic version of the slave chip has been designed and tested in several hundred individuals, and so far the results have been satisfactory. Hekate undergoes a number of CRISPR modifications herself, seeking to prolong her life and increase the status of her health. Members of the Intelligentsia caste have developed a gene through the use of CRISPR to reduce telomere degradation in the body and prevent the excessive mutation and degeneration of cells. After many hundreds of deaths and horrifying mutations, a final version has been approved for use by Hekate, to add a few extra years to her life, but ultimately allow her to maintain her youth and physicality. Thus far, only Hekate has been able to take advantage of this development, and she intends to keep it that way. Hekate seeks to bolster her physical strength and mental capacity, seeking to become the Übermensch described by Friedrich Nietzsche, all to create the image of the infallible parental figure spoken of in Dirigism. The development of the infrastructure in the newly subjugated state of Tennessee has begun. The locals of that state have put up considerable resistance to Dirigist forces, but have ultimately been overwhelmed and chipped by the Soldiery caste. With the ever-expanding soldiery of the Dirigist Bloc, additonal targets for subjugation continue to appear. So far, the state of Kentucky has been confirmed by the Bureaucracy caste as the next target for Dirigist subjugation. However, this has remained within the mental network of slaves controlled by Hekate. She has no intention of allowing these plans to escape into the public sphere beyond the Bloc, and thus wills it that no mention of the invasion be allowed. In other news, Hekate sends her congratulations to the Republic of America for adopting Dirigism as their state ideology, and states that they have made a decision that later generations with look back in pride upon.
- Federal states of America:We upgrade our mil.We aid Massachusetts against Rhode Island.We change our name to the Federal States of America.
- Republic of Iowa: The state is more centralized around River City. The people are very calm and serene, almost to an unnatural level. The military is built up to defend the borders, but are very laxed as the state is in no trouble at all. More shots are used at clay pidgeons than any conflict. The people are so detached from conflict, the most solemn memory in the nation is the sinking of the Maine. The most excitement that occured this year was a farmer's chicken, who laid an egg with two yokes. It was in the paper.
- The Allied states launches another massive push from South Carolina to finish the war this year. Defeating North Carolina in battle, the ASA successfully conquers North Carolina.
From now on, we don't start turns unless Edge or Nate does it.

- FSA:We upgrade our military.Our states are New Jersey,New York,Niagara,and a capital district.There is also much Federal Territory (Unorganized Territory).We ask New England if we can buy the Island of Rhode Island (That is Airondack Island) for $2,000,000 (price is open to negotiate; England response needed).
- New England Republic: We thank the FSA for the offer but we decline the offer. President Tarr visits the FSA capital of Albany with the Federal President. Secret: President Tarr and the Federal President discuss the invasion and division of Connecticut. The invasion would occur in 2030. We plan to use paratroopers to land forces behind Connecticut lines. We also plan the division of Vermont set for some time in the 2030s. We prepare special divisions off of former American war vets for training. Our 1st Airborne division known as the "Flying Wolves" train in the east. We produce more weapons from the plant in Springfield.
- The Allied States of America launches an invasion of Kentucky in an attempt to solidify regional unity. ASA Troops flood into Frankfort after a 2 month long seige, and the ASA captures the State of Kentucky. more later.
- The Federal Republic of Michigan declares victory over Wisconsin, and forces a peace treaty upon them, which has the following result: The Green Bay area shall become the Protectorate of Green Bay. Wisconsin shall pay over 100,000 dollars to Michigan. Michigan shall be allowed to use Milwaukee as a naval base. The rest of Northern Wisconsin is turned into federal territory, with plans being laid for the creation of new districts. Michigan is officially divided to federal administrative districts: Detroit, the Capital District, Mackinac, Superior, Tri-Cities, Grand Rapids, and Muskegon. With our interests in Lake Michigan secured, we become concerned over the expansionist policies of the Allied states of America, and thus request an alliance with Indiana, Pennsylvania and The FSA. (mod response for Indiana.) As the Michigan economy continues to advance thanks to the self-driving car industry, Detroit sees a noticeable decrease in crime rates, and Flint undergoes vast improvements in it's factories and armaments. We place the army at over 300,000 men, in case of attack. We move to improve ties with Canada, and also seek to strengthen ties with Illinois.
- Protectorate of Green Bay: Rebuilding begins across the Door Peninsula area, as an occupation begins in the Protectorate. 5,000 Michigan troops are stationed in the area, and military checkpoints are established at the roads leading into and out of Green Bay. An program is put in place to incorporate the people of Green Bay into Michigan by winning their hearts and minds.
- Republic of America: Adopting policies similar to those taken by President Ophelia, all able-bodied Brazilian men were practically 'enslaved', being forced to work in the mines and effectively replace Florida's thinning labour force. In Georgia and Alabama however, these policies were not adopted as it was feared that this would alienate the local people, who naturally would be incapable of bearing the burden of hosting all the refugees. As such; almost all of the refugees were contained in Florida, with refugee camps established in the Madison, Hamilton, Suwan-nee, Hills-Borough, Polk, Manatee, Hardee and Highlands counties; the refugees having been segregated and seperated from the main Republican population centres. Meanwhile, thousands of Brazilians that were seen as a burden to the state, primarily due to being too old or crippled were all killed off to ensure that nobody would leech off the Republic's resources. However, keen on exploiting even the weak and old, the FSF ensured that the organs were removed from those particular 'old' refugees to be used later for medical purposes in order to benefit the Republic, a move that was considered one of the massive organ harvesting events to have taken place in history. News and information of it was however restricted and it was made sure that nobody learned of the events that had taken place. The children and infants who made up a significant portion of the refugee population were divided into four groups in order for them to be later assigned to four particular professions in the Republic; mining; farming; factory worker; armed forces. The children were then accordingly sent to their respective 'schools' to be trained for their future professions whilst simultaneously being bombarded with propaganda in order to ensure that they would remain loyal 'citizens' of the state. The Federal Security Force had already collected data on each and every refugee who had entered into the Republic and as such, information on all of the refugees was recorded; a move taken to make sure that the state would be capable of decising destroying any refugee 'revolt' in case one took place by targeting the families of the respective rebel refugees. Meanwhile, upon hearing news that the Allied States of America had launched an attack upon Kentucky, President Weatherford announced that the state would be mobilizing its military to launch successive assaults upon the ASA in order to bring a halt to its warmongering policies. Simultaneously, 400,000 troops were deployed at the Republican-Allied border, primarily concentrated at the Hart, Elbert, Lincoln, Columbia and Richmond counties. These troops were further reinforced by multiple armoured divisions and air force units. Meanwhile, almost the entire Republican fleet which consisted of 11,250 ships was deployed near Allied coastline to blockade the Allied States whilst also ensuring that they would be left incapable of launching an amphibious assault upon the Republic. Once the President issued an official declaration of war, the troops launched a massive assault upon 'Allied South Columbia', employing blitzkrieg tactics to race through the state and occupy important cities.
- Greater Coloradan Social Republic: We continue to send the mormons into Utah. Our capital Denver is opening up new high rise apartment buildings, to be used to house the expanding Denver population. We work on modernizing our military. We begin producing SCAR assault rifles, which will become standard issue. Peoples Militia will continue to use M4s and M16 variants. We work on preserving our air fleet, and we even modify some civilian aircraft to be used as gunships. The Armed Forces fortify the country, building military bases everywhere, building as much bunkers as possible, in case of enemy invasion. For extra measure, the committee of arms distribution is handing out Ak47 variants and M16 rifles to Worker Unions, which number about 25,000. We have 100,000 armed forces, 150,000 peoples militia, and 25,000 Worker Unions that are armed. The Republic's total troop number for defense is 275,000 armed men. The military begins work on building an indigenous Armored Fighting Vehicle, which is essentially an upgraded Stryker, with Carbon Nanotube armor and can use either a 105mm light gun, or can use a 30mm AA gun. We also work to preserve our Abrams tank force and enter the M60 tanks and upgrade them back into service.
- Illinois: We stand our troops down in peacetime and hold our positions allowing our troops levels to recover. While we work on improving the Missouri economy as well as our own. We offer Wisconsin union with us now that they are in a reduced state.
- Michigan points out that Milwaukee is being used as a naval base by Michigan.
- Illinois: All standing agreements will be maintained so yeah you can keep your naval base.
- Deseret: We continue spreading the evangelism of uniting the promised land of Deseret into Nevada, who was promised to us, particularely to Las Vegas, the former Mormon fort, now turned to debauchery and lust. We request Mormons across the former US to support our cause and begin preaching for our faith across the Rocky Mountains. We begin improving our infrastructure again, and begin a review on coffee to see it's compatibility with the Desereti goals. We ask Colorado and Texas for embassies in their capitals, in return for the same to be provided in Salt Lake. We incorporate Southern Idaho into our country and begin promoting large-scale farming in the fertile north. We begin spreading our evangelism to the Mormons of western Wyoming.
- Coloradan Secret Diplomacy: We accept and embassies open. We request that we can take eastern Wyoming (the non mormon part)
- Desereti secret diplomacy: We accept the Coloradoan proposal.
- United Alaska: The new state is put in a weird place as Loyalist try to keep the state loyal to DC (most of them being rich or high class) with most of them taking arms from the city of Kenia to march on Palmer but while on march a group of Ex National Guards (Alakians) open fired killing 50 loyalist and causing a stand off for 2 hours before a fire fight happened pushing back the Alaskians, While in Juenau protest are held (that fell into riots) with them demanding to leave the Union. In Rural areas men take guns and take on army and join with the Alaskians with their leader "Mike Green" saying "The US lost their way, and we have to leave." The Civil War begins to ramp up as the Loyalist begin to bomb rebel held areas with the old US stockpile. A army of loyalist lay seigh on the rebel city of Palmer while in rural areas a army begin to march to free Palmer. In Jeuno riots turn into streets battles as rebels and loyalist fight in the city. The war begins to scale up as rebels take over 90% of the country and the loyalist being pushed back to Jeuno with the loyalist working on gaining air control on the the Alakian South East Coast.
- Dirigist Bloc: With the war declared by the Republic of America against the Allied States of America, both allies of the Dirigist Bloc, Hekate opts to sit the war out and let her allies fight one another. Turning her attention to the Brazilian refugees, she has the children taken from their caretakers, and chipped by the Intelligentsia caste. The elder members of the refugees are also chipped and sent straight into the Soldiery caste to bolster the forces of the military. Another 750,000 children are bred for the Creche Program in Tennessee, for a total of 2.25 million total offspring in the program thus far. Of these, 1.5 million are currently three years of age, and undergoing further genetic modification to make them more docile and receptive to commands given by Hekate and the members of the Bureaucracy caste. Another round of CRISPR modifications are given to the Creche Program children, this time the anti-telomare degradation gene, drIX/517, which has been cleared for use in the citizenry of the Bloc. Hekate wishes for her nation to consist of "fit and beautiful people", ensuring that all will remain physically fit and youthful up until their fifties. However, unlike herself, the imperfect version of gene drIX/517 used for the majority of the subjects drastically shortens the lifespan of the individual to about forty years, meaning that Hekate has effectively halved the lifespan of her "perfect" citizens in the upcoming generation. To compensate, she orders the Intelligentsia to develop a solution to take advantage of the shortened lifespan in whatever manner possible for the Dirigist Bloc.
- California-Washington-Arizona: In order to unite all the Pacific states under one nation, President Musk declares war on Oregon, and 150,000 troops invade Oregon from Washington, renewing the exact invasion of the first Cascadian War, starting from Portland to Colombia City, but this time a second front is launched, from Salem to the capital, Eugene.
- The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with numerous powerful states on our borders, especially New York, we mobalize the national guard and establish a strong military presence in our cities. In addition to this, we start continue on a massive fort near the New York-Pennsylvania border intended to slow any advances from our adversaries. In light of the dissolution of the Union, the state declares an emergency and state-wide elections are to be suspended until 2030. Governor Thomas Corbett is retitled the President of Pennsylvania, although he is criticized by many across the state as he orders the dissolution of both Democratic and Republican parties, as they are blamed state-wide for the new crisis and dissolution of the union. We mobilize another 50,000 troops on our southern border, totalling 150,000 troops total. Our plans to invade Maryland are made obvious at this point.

- Republic of Iowa: The state is shaken up this year, with trouble. Trouble with a capital "T", that rhymes with "P", that stands for pool. The economy changed drastically after a number of salesmen from Brooklyn, New York began selling pool tables throughout the state. After some months, a charismatic music professor from Gary, Indiana (Gary conservatory, gold medel graduate of '05) convinced the population of River City to abandon these pool tables, and the gambling they cause, in exchange for taking up this school of music instead. Being very aimable folks, the people of River City quickly jumped on this movement, and began burning the pool tables of the city.
- New England: We mobilize 75,000 men and invade Connecticut. We use our new paratroopers to land troops in the Connecticut countryside. We aim at Hartford and Colchester, and New London. We call the FSA into conflict with Connecticut in promised return for eastern Connecticut. We ask for the surrender of Connecticut to New England. We occupy Hartford, Colchester, and New London and wait for both a surrender agreement and for Federal forces to invade from the west. President Tarr reasures the people that the expansion is for the greater good of America. New England also requests New Hampshires loyal friendship to pass to a brotherly bond. With the invasion of eastern Connecticut we ask our friends the New Hapmshireites for a peaceful integration (mod response). (mod response for this too) We also would like to buy military vehicles especially tanks from the governments of Canada and the United Kingdom in return for a lift on all trade barriers and 3 billion dollars for each government.
- The Federal Republic of Michigan continues to grow and prosper, with the economy developing at a slow rate. We begin selling our self-driving cars abroad, with the hopes of showing to the world that Michigan is becoming a reasonably powerful country, and not some joke. The military begins using the latest in new technologies, with the introduction of ariel combat drones that are built for air-to-air combat, as well plans for self-driving tanks, which will be operated by human controllers. This will help reduce casualties on the battlefield in the foreseeable future. Three new Federal Districts are created: Green Bay, which was formerly a protectorate, Nicolet, and Chequamegon. This Districts are given full rights, like that of all the Federal District in Michigan, and roads are built across all three to help connect the republic. Troops are deployed along the border with Minnesota, and we offer Illinois permission to build military bases within our republic.
- Republic of America: The Republican military shattered the myth of Allied invincibility by completely crushing the Allied force, overruning the state of South Carolina and securing a complete and total victory. However, much to everyones surprise, President Weatherford was quick to sign the Treaty of Charleston, bringing an effective end to the war. This was primarily because the Republic had accomplished all of its goals, which included occupying South Carolina, humiliating the ASA and make it very clear that the Republic would destroy all of its enemies. Subsequently, major celebrations were held throughout the Republic with millions participating in the events, joyous of the victory over the ASA. With peace secured, the state demobilized its military whilst quickly establishing FSF bases throughout South Carolina, keen on cracking down on any dissent and to also collect information on the public. Meanwhile, in response to the massive hurricane that hit Orlando, President Weatherford responded by directing all efforts to aid the hurricane victims, sending the FSF to rescue trapped survivors whilst simultaneously providing the victims with food, water as well as shelter.

- The Second Republic of Texas continues to consolidate power New Mexico, rooting out the cartels and deporting illegals. To the suprise of everyone, insurgent candidate Phil Anselmo sweeps his primary, having fellow candidate Louie Gohrmert as VP, and defeats George P. Bush and Julian Castro in the election. However, the real power consolidates behind the scene, using his psuedocelebrity status and mass popular appeal to push their agenda, knowing full well he does not know how to use the power of governor on his own. Among these people are his party, the Freedom party, and multiple businesses who formerly supported Donald Trump. In a way, he is much like George W. Bush from the same state. Anti-latino violence continues, with a race riot in Corpus Christi leaving 42 dead. The capitol is planned to move from Austin to Ft. Worth. We ask to strengthen relations with the Dirigist Bloc, and potentially open a trade agreement. The Nuclear and Chemical weapons stockpile of the nation grows, and more and more of the country begins to switch to nuclear energy.
- The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with numerous powerful states on our borders, especially New York, we mobilize the national guard and establish a strong military presence in our cities. In addition to this, we start continue on a massive fort near the New York-Pennsylvania border intended to slow any advances from our adversaries. In light of the dissolution of the Union, the state declares an emergency and state-wide elections are to be suspended until 2030. Governor Thomas Corbett is retitled the President of Pennsylvania, although he is criticized by many across the state as he orders the dissolution of both Democratic and Republican parties, as they are blamed state-wide for the new crisis and dissolution of the union. We mobilize another 50,000 troops on our southern border, totalling 200,000 troops total. Our plans to invade Maryland are made very obvious at this point.
- California-Washington-Arizona: We have successfully conquered Oregon at the end of last year, and with the conquest we have annexed them. With this annexation, we have annexed all the Pacific states, and now President Musk declares this new and united nation as the nation of Pacifica, with the states of California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona, with California being the main state and Sancremento being the capital. President Musk states "People of Pacifica, we are the strongest nation in the former United States, with the largest economy, most people, and greatest military, and united together we will achieve greatness." Technological and infrastructure development continues, and war is declared upon Nevada, with the invasion of Las Vegas and surrounding areas with 150,000 troops. . With the military build up of Dessert, a Texan-Desserti war is inedible and we mobilize our forces, sending 600,000 soldiers to the Arizonian-Texan border to prepare for a Texan invasion and 150,000 troops are put along the Nevadian-Dessertian border. A cure of typhoid fever is being research to treat all the Jesse's in California.
- Deseret: We continue spreading the evangelism of uniting the promised land of Deseret into Nevada, who was promised to us, particularely to Las Vegas, the former Mormon fort, now turned to debauchery and lust. We request Mormons across the former US to support our cause and begin preaching for our faith across the Rocky Mountains. We begin improving our infrastructure again, and begin a review on coffee to see it's compatibility with the Desereti goals. We ask Colorado and Texas for embassies in their capitals, in return for the same to be provided in Salt Lake. We incorporate Southern Idaho into our country and begin promoting large-scale farming in the fertile north. We begin spreading our evangelism to the Mormons of western Wyoming. We reinforce our western border, with the invasion of California due to their aggression. We request our allies to be ready for the war that will come.
