The North American Commonwealth is a vast nation covering much of North America.
The North American Commonwealth has large areas of coast line on the Atlantic Ocean and in the Gulf of Mexico. It has large plains regions and covers much of the Appalachian mountains. It consists of the former regions of Alabama, Arkansas, Cuba, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Ontario, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin.
The North American Commonwealth developed after the collapse of Pravus Inguro, a large North American nation that spanned much of the southeastern United States after its collapse. The North American Commonwealth could almost be considered a revival of the former United States government. Not only is the capitol of Washington, D.C. preserved, but all of the former government buildings house their equivalents in the North American Commonwealth. In the decade of the 2050's, the Commonwealth expanded exponentially, until it became one of the largest North American nations, second only to the Caribou Federation.
Government and Politics
The North American Commonwealth is a federal republic. Every four years, the citizens elect a President (4 year terms) to lead the executive branch. The congress consists of the House of Representatives (2 year terms) and the Senate (6 year terms). A Supreme Court consists of justices appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
David Bronson was elected the first President in 2045. He was elected to serve five terms, but resigned in 2062. His vice-president, Charles Nelson succeeded him until his term ran out in 2065. Nelson decided not to run in 2065, and Sean Bronson, brother of David, was elected. After Sean's election, the Congress amended the constitution to limit Presidents to no more than four terms in office.
The North American Commonwealth is one of the most politically powerful nations in North America. The Commonwealth is friendly with most North American nations, especially the Republic of California and North Mexico, the other North American powers.
