Change Year 50 by YNot1989 Change Year 50 by YNot1989
It has been 50 years since the laws of physics were rewritten and the world changed. With the end of the War with the CUT, the map of post Change North America had shifted once again.

The war's end was brought about by two key events: the return of Rudi Mackenzie from the Eastern Death Zone, and the Commonwealth of Vancouver entrance into the war upon request from Lady Juniper.

Upon the end of the war the nations of the Meeting met in Corvallis for the final time and crowned Rudi Mackenzie as Artos, High King of Montival, forming a solidified nation under his rule. High King Artos has ruled for more than two decades now, and Montival has reached an era of prosperity. Having consolidated its borders by CY 30, Montival is a multicultural land, mixing Norman, Pagan, Cowboy culture into a diverse society. The largest faith in Montival is Juniperian Wicca, which among traditional wicca views, views Lady Juniper and Lord Bear as demigods. In spite of this dynamic society, Montival is once again preparing for war, this time on its northern front with the Second Republic.

The Commonwealth of Vancouver, was the sole nation of the allies of the Meeting to oppose the coronation of Artos, deeming it the birth of yet another despot in America. This event, bolstered by their occupation of Boise, spurred Consul General Kilpatrick, to call for the official dissolution of the Commonwealth and the creation of The Second Republic of the United States of America. The Second Republic promptly absorbed Boise into its union and formerly annexed large portions of southern Canada and Northern Washington. Since its creation the Second Republic has taken control of more territory than any single nation, however the majority of that territory is in former Canada.

With the establishment of the Second Republic, a number of nations submitted to their calls for restoring the territory of the First Republic. Fargo was the only sovereign state to do so, while most of Montana and Northern Wyoming were outright conquered. With this new threat, the Governor of Iowa led a ten year conflict to conquer Marshall and Kirksville, eventually forming the Iowan Empire. Richland was the only one of the Sunrise Lands to remain independent, however it is currently in talks with the Second Republic regarding annexation.

North America is once again on the brink of war, and Iowa, the Neo-Sioux, Montival, and New Deseret find themselves in a tentative alliance against a reborn United States. Their only hope is that Greater Britain and Norrheim will enter the war on their side, fearing a rival in the North Atlantic.

For the Second Republic, nothing less than total control of the continent is at stake. With the US Provisional Capitol remaining in Victoria, and a greater industrial capacity than any other nation, victory seems all but assured.

So this is the official sequel to my fan-fic map Commonwealth of Vancouver

I make no claim to S.M. Stirling's masterful Emberverse series, this is just a speculative fan piece based on the aforementioned scenario.

How could Acadiana, Kanawha and Nuevo Maya interact with the other nations even though there are death zones?

This ignores the fact that Iowa basicly owns the sunrise republics as vassals and has zero need to annex them via a costly war since when Iowa went to war, so did they.

It ignores alot of things in order to fufill your fanwank

The map itself is amazingly done. Every piece of lore behind it that wasn't already established, isn't.

In every single post-apocalyptic USA maps I've seen, Washington is either little or not even affected at all.
I take back everything I ever said about living here.

So did Deseret, Montana and the sioux break away from Montival at some point, plus its been 40 years and Montival still does not have the Wesphalia Project in effect to expand south into old California, unless something occurred to change things, Montival should be alot larger.
