2a. General Statistics of the United Southernours

The Confederacy of United Southernours is a country mostly situated on the Northern coast of North America, with only about 1/4 of the nation's land extending into the west. It does not reach the Pacific ocean. The largest state is Texas, land wise, but the most densely populated state is Virginia. While the Confederacy does contain some minor outlying islands, they are sparsely populated and are mostly used for military usage.

Most of the land that does not directly border water is used for farming purposes. Given the climate that is adequate for growing a wide array of food stuffs and other staple crops, Agriculture is a main factor in the United Southernours economy. The only sector of the United Southernours economy that is larger than Agriculture is the Slave Market. Slavery has been legal in the Confederacy since it's formation in 1872.

3. United Southernours Economy

The economy of the United Southernours is largely driven by Slavery, Agriculture, and Consumer products. It's currency is the Confederate Dollar, which compared to the world market, it is relatively strong, the most recent data shows that the Confederate Dollar is holding at C$1 = GBP$ 1.066. GDP is at C$11,644,651,879,000.20 and rising. Current GDP per capita is estimated to be around $32,000. Income Tax rates are a steady 0%, and income is gained through a Value Added Tax called the "Fair Tax". The majority of manual Labour is done by Slaves imported in from Africa, where the other, easier, jobs are done by non-slaves.

Since 1943 the Confederacy has been in a Budget Surplus stage, with the Federal Budget currently holding at C$1,290,332,578,080. In contrast, only C$1,264,525,926,518 is spent by the government, which amounts to a C$25,806,651,560 surplus each year. The Federal Government currently holds C$638,713,076,593 from Surplus budgets. When ever a tax cut in the VAT is issued, funds from the Federal Surplus Reserve Fund are used to cover the loss, but only for the first 2 years. By then the Budget need to be balanced again.

4. The History of the United Southernours

1678-1715

In 1678, settlers from Massachusetts Bay came down to the Virginia Colony, and in a war, uprooted the Government there and instilled a loose Government that only involved 2 people, the Governor and the Sheriff.

It was in 1679 that Virginia officially broke away from the Kingdom of England, and established her own country, The Virginia Country. This country's founding documents specifically stated it would never expand upon lands, and it would stay in in it's position forever. The Governor was not elected, he was appointed by the previous Governor. Only the Sheriff was elected, every 20 years. Due to this nation's short time period, only 1 Governor was ever in power. There have been 2 Sheriffs.

It was in 1715 that a major dispute arose that would eventually rip the country apart and lead to the foundation of a new country.

1678-1698: Sheriff John Blumenther
1698-1715: Sheriff Aaron Crandell

1715-1798

A dispute about overpopulation lead the Virginia Country to fall apart. A small civil war took place between the Coastal citizens and the Western citizens. This war started in 1713 and ended in 1715 when the West finally razed the capital to the ground and set up a new government. The Virginia Country became the Republic of Virginia.

It was soon emanate that the country would expand to the North and West, to try and secure their capital city from threat of an invasion by the Kingdom of Great Britain. The constitution wrote that Presidents served for one 10-year term, and were elected by the people of Winston, the nation's capital. The list of President is provided below.

It was in 1798 that the country was taken over by Radicals. James Madison and his party, the Federalists gained control of the Virgina House of Lords, They quickly passed legislation to disband the Republic and form a Commonwealth/Monarchy hybrid. In 1798, the flag of the Republic was lowered one last time, this was the first time a country in the New World had it's government change peacefully and by legislation. President Madison was murdered on the last night of the Republic by former President Aaron Burr.

1715-1725: President Olsen Goode
1725-1735: President Stephen Proctor
1735-1745: President John Rolfe
1745-1755: President John Smith
1755-1765: President Harold Adams
1765-1775: President John Adams
1775-1785: President Aaron Burr
1785-1798: President James Madison

1798-1876

After the take over, the Country was once again renamed. This time it was the Commonwealth of Virginia and Western Territories. From the times of the Republic, the Commonwealth started to vastly expand, taking more land from the North, South, and West as their own. In 1804, it was soon decided that 2-3 different sections of Virginia could not do. So, they divided Virginia up into States, where a local government was established that pledged loyalty to the Prime Minister, who pledged loyalty to the King.

By 1876, the Commonwealth contained 10 states. The Commonwealth had the most stable Government since Virginia's inception in 1678. While not the longest lasting, it provided a safe and stable atmosphere at the time. The Commonwealth was torn apart when Pro-Slavery leaders were elected to higher offices, and a revolution to own slaves arose in 1874. At this time, Pro-Slavery holdouts all over the Atlantic Seaboard joined forces with the Pro-Slavery leaders and overthrew the Commonwealth, this resulted in another change of government.

The Commonwealth was ruled by a King, with a Prime Minister to help him. Ever 6 years there was a Parliamentary election where Senators were elected by the people, but the House of Lords were handpicked by the Royal Family and one by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister was selected by whatever party or Coalition gained the most seats in the Senate. The Royal Family, The Prime Minister, and the Party Leader of the Senate are shown below.

1798-1826: King Thomas Jefferson I

1876-Present

After the Pro-Slavery faction took over, Virginia was united as one single State. The northern part of Virginia was separated into two states, Maryland and Delaware. The Southern part was separated into North Carolina, as it rested above Carolina, a sovereign nation that joined this new government. It was renamed South Carolina afterwords. Kentucky and Tennessee were formed from the unorganized Western Territories.

In 1901, the Spanish Empire collapsed and it's hold on the Deep South and West was released. With no government, they joined the Confederacy of United Southernours. To the North, the Confederacy bordered New England, a Colony of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The war for the North commenced in 1921, which resulted in 600,000 Confederate Soldiers dead, and 1,000,000 United Kingdom Troops Dead. The involvement in the War for New England cost the United Kingdom it's possessions in Ireland and Scotland, and it was reduced to the Kingdom of Great Britain. New England was then annexed by the Confederacy, bring it to it's total state count right now.

The Confederacy runs a Representative Republic/Commonwealth Government Structure. It is ruled by the President, who is elected by the People for up to two six-year terms. There is then the Senate and the House of Representatives, where the People elect two Senators from each state and the State Legislature picks Representatives based on population. It also reserves power for the Opposition. Every election, a member from the Senate is voted on to be the Leader of Opposition. He is given a house in Washington, D.C. and the power to create a Shadow Cabinet. Both the Opposition Leader and the Shadow Cabinet have a say in Government, but it first must be approved by the President or the real Cabinet.

The following list shows the Presidents, their parties, and the Senate majority.

But Congress may, by law, grant to the principal officer in each of the Executive Departments a seat upon the floor of either House, with the privilege of discussing any measures appertaining to his department.

Section 7. (I) All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments, as on other bills.

The War between the States is regarded as one of the most important wars in the Confederacy. In March of 1872, The two southern most states in the Commonwealth seceded from Virginia to create the Confederate States of Virginia. By December of 1872, all of the Southern states and a few western territories decided to join the Confederate States. Initial fighting began when Commonwealth King Abraham Lincoln demanded that the southern section of the coastal state of Norfolk be returned to the control of the Commonwealth. Naturally, the Confederacy bucked and responded by launching an attack on Commonwealth Fort Prenter, although no one was killed in this battle, the Confederacy made itself quite clear it wasn't going to back down from Northern Virginia aggression. By 1873, the war was looking bad for the Confederacy, where they were beaten back at their capital city of Raleigh. It was in early 1874 that Confederate President Jefferson Davis signed an alliance with the Republic of Carolina and the Tennessee Union, which lead them to offer armies to right for the liberation of the Confederacy. Using their new allies, the Confederacy slowly advanced upon Commonwealth land, eventually invading the north. Through heavy fighting, they reached Richmond. King Lincoln and his ministers fled to the District of Columbia, where he decided to watch a small play. On April 1, 1876, Confederate Spy John Booth shot King Lincoln in the head, killing him. At Appomattox Court House, after hearing the news of Lincoln's death, Commonwealth General Ulysses Grant surrendered to Confederate General Robert E. Lee, ending the war. Soon after, the North and South were united as one, and the Confederate States of Virginia dissolved to form the Confederacy of United Southernours.

The War for New England was the United Southernours attempt to oust The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from North America. Starting with a war declaration in 1921, the Confederacy started the initial attack on the British stronghold of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This would prove to be the bloodiest battle in the history of the two nations. The Confederacy drove the British out of Gettysburg, but at the price of 23,000 men on their side and 16,000 on the British side. The campaign, let by General P.T. Smith, was called Smith's March to Boston, where General P.T. Smith refused to quit until he reached Boston, Massachusetts. It was obvious by 1925 that the March to Boston was no longer a possibility. With 1.3 Million dead from both sides already, neither was willing to give in. The only changes where that New Jersey was under loose Southernours control and Pennsylvania was occupied by the Confederacy. By 1927, 1.7 million lives were lost. The United Kingdom came forward first to offer peace, with Ireland and Scotland in a rebellion stage, they needed to defend their homeland. A few colonies in North America were no longer worth it. On October 30th, 1927, Peace was declared and New England was annexed to the Confederacy.

The United Southernours became involved in World War II when the Empire of Japan decided they would invade the Colony of Australia, a long-held Southernours possession. The war mostly took place in the Pacific, where a most notable battle was the battle of Iwo Jima. This moment is captured in a photograph of Southernours forces raising the battle flag over Mount Suribachi. This ended when the United Southernours dropped atomic weapons on Toyko and Kyoto. Which liberated all the countries occupied by the Japanese.

The Australian - Southernours War was widely regarded as the War of Australian Independence. The Confederacy easily overwhelmed the Australians at every battle, save for one - The Siege of Sydney, where Australian forces took control of Sydney by major force of will - forcing the Southernours out. Finally at the battle of Melbourne, Colonial Governor John Howard surrendered the rest of his forces and the colony to the rule of the United Southernours. Although the Australian's effort was not in vain, from 1984 to 1996, President Ronald Reagan slowly gave the Australians their independence. The only possession on the United Southernours in Australia is currently a small plot of land called the Jervis Bay Territory.
