Postby Broader Confederate States » Sat Nov 17, 2018 11:05 am

The Confederacy is a band of fifteen states, with capitols in parentheses:

Alabama (Montgomery)
Alaska (Juneau)
Arkansas (Little Rock)
Florida (Tallahassee)
Georgia (Atlanta)
Louisiana (Baton Rouge)
Mississippi (Jackson)
North Carolina (Raleigh)
Oklahoma (Oklahoma City)
Puerto Rico (San Juan)
South Carolina (Columbia)
South Kentucky (Bowling Green)
South Missouri (Cape Girardeau)
Tennessee (Nashville)
Virginia (Richmond)
We gave Texas the boot the second Texas gave our culture the boot, which is to say sometime between the seventies and the 2000s.

Each state has authority over its own territory greater than that of the central government, and can ignore it if it truly wants to. The exception is during wartime, when the nation adopts a more federal style of government.

The Crylantian Federation consists of the 21 states of Aasum, Aversi, Badessa, Dybøll, Glostrup, Gunderslev, Haverslev, Kalastjärvi, Kattinge, Lentini, Lillehavn, Marnehus, Nebligen, Neititsnot, Nixoperuit, Pugdal, Särmäki, Sønderburg, Stavrup, Vestplan and Viikmaa.

It also includes the Commonwealth of the Vanir Islands, which is a self-governing part of the Crylantian Federation, yet is not a state and has much more autonomy than the 21 states.

Our original response to this was to be "three states - good, bad and indifferent". However, the junior clerk initially tasked with responding has since been fired for mountainous incompetence.

Our Foreign Office now offers the proper response:

Mistiqa has four officially recognised states, known as Realms. Generally affairs of government are handled on a national basis, however each Realm does have a limited number of areas in which it can manage its own economy and vary laws according to local customs.

The March of Morisner, the state in which the House Holclair-Solorich and Dyecolt rules under House Crestet of Viese, has an interesting way of categorising its provinces.

There is the March-Proper, which contains two Counties within it - the County of Morisner and the County of Solorich. Then there is also the County of Holclair and the Baronetcy of Dyecolt.

So, to recap:

  • March of Morisner
    • County of Morisner
    • County of Solorich
  • County of Holclair
  • Baronetcy of Dyecolt

Ghost Land is divided into two portions: Metro Spookville (population 1,340,000,000) and The Rest (population 4,286,000,000). Metro Spookville is divided into five counties, one for each quadrant and then the downtown area; The Rest is divided up into 432 counties, many of which are subdivided into smaller and smaller chunks, each of which having its own government, thus driving taxes even higher than the levels listed on the nation page (which is merely the federal income tax).

Mesadora is not divided into states or provinces. Instead, the government recognizes sizeable cities, allowing them to form a local government to better maintain the area. The recognized cities, by population (+/- 500), are as follows:
- Dedeos (427,500)
- Miraluz (322,000)
- Puerto Nuevo (221,000)
- Lavale (160,500)
- Lasada (83,500)
- Oiyo (37,000)
Approximately 5,000 people do not live within these jurisdictions, and are largely off-the-grid.

We have 21 states and 2 special districts. States are then divided into cities and municipal governments. They are semi-autonomous states, that means that most policy is set nationally but the states have several functions like provision of social services and education.

Re: How many states does your nation have?

How many states does your nation have?

Geographically, the Realm of Yohannes is a continent of three main islands and their surrounding small islands. Politically, it consists of nineteen constituent countries, with 379 million people (as of 1 December 2017).

The three kingdoms of Alexandria, Burmecia and Lindblum have more people and area than all the other sixteen countries combined—they are the dominant countries on the continent. In accordance with the Fifth Amendment, Yohannes is an elective monarchy, parliamentary democracy. Territories are not necessarily contiguous (such as the Noble Republic of Treno—red, northeast of the Kingdom of Burmecia—their non-contiguous positions resulted from historical acquisitions, or, in the case of the Grand Duchy of Kradenmark, divisions of the ruling family trees), and some of the smaller constituent countries (such as the Grand Duchy of Donata) continue to have control of their own army, post office, railways, and nominal rights in taxation.

The contemporary version of the Realm of Yohannes (1871-present) is illustrated here: (link to full resolution):
