The United Provinces, officially the Kingdom of the United Provinces (also mentioned as the UP) and formerly part of Greenland, is a independent Sovereign State in North America bordering Greenland. The United Provinces is one of the world’s smallest nations, covering just ten square miles. Settled by English and Scottish people, The United Provinces was annexed and claimed as a colony by the Danish Empire in the late 18th century. After World War I, the nation became a League of Nations Mandate administrated by Canada, America and Denmark. During World War II, it was occupied by Canadian and American troops and later became the official residence of the exiled Danish Royal Family. After the war ended, it entered into trusteeship again. The United Provinces was declared independent in 2011 on 31 May.
Politics and GovernmentEdit
The Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy. The current and reigning monarch is Queen Anne I. As stipulated in the Provincial Constitution, the monarch is not answerable for their actions, and their person is sacrosanct. The monarch formally appoints and dismisses the Prime Minister and other ministers. The Prime Minister is usually the leader of the largest political party.
Two weeks before the country would be fully independent, the people of the United Provinces voted on who should be the first monarch. Anne, Princess Royal, the only daughter of Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom was elected as the first monarch. Her offical residence however, is not in the United Provinces but rather in Canada due to the small size of the country. The prime minister was also elected on the same day with the result of Margaret Rowston, leader of Provincial Conservative Party, winning an absolute majority in the House of Ambassadors.
Three months before independence in 2011, the United Provinces joined the Commonwealth of Nations as a Special Member. The country was admitted to the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations the same year.
Upon independence, the UP was recognised by all but three member nations of the UN. These were: North Korea, Angola and Nauru. Upon recieving its seat the UN security council passed the Canadian-Provincial Defence Pact. This was to ensure that the Canadian military held all responsibility on the defence of the nation if it were ever attacked. However the agreement will expire in 2016 when the topic will be reassesed.
Soon after, the Deltoran Republic, a member of the United Nations and the Sunshine Treaty Organization Pact, also reconized the UP as an independent sovereign state. President of the Republic Laura Nifestri said that after the Great Pacific War ended, the DR would attempt to establish embassies and better relations.
The Pacific Empire also recognized the United Provinces as an independent sovereign nation. Emperor Frank Jaegar plans to expand the foreign relations between the empire and the United Provinces with the construction of embassies on both sides and with economic trades. The empire have also been supplying the military of UP with various tax-free military hardwares such as the Panzer V and the Taurus.
On the third of June 2011, only four days after independence, the United Provinces declared war on the Republic of Decia, a small soveriegn state near Istanbul. The first land battle proved a decisive vistory for the UP, killing around fifty enemy troops and sending the Republic into anarchy. Although no battles have since taken place, the UP government raised the DEFCON Level to three to prepare citizens in case of a forthcoming attack.
