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.

New Deseret is part of Montival as of The Given Sacrifice and The Golden Princess.

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.

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.

Pretty, but it does pretty much ignore everything established in the books about what used to was Canada. Interior BC is part of the PPA, with the official border between Montival and the Dominion of Drumheller running along the old Alberta/BC Border. Southern Saskatchewan now belongs to the Dominion of Moose Jaw, and southern Manitoba the Dominion of Minnedosa. The only one of these we see anything about is Drumheller, but they retain a Priemier, a Legislative Assembley, and the typical Canuk antipathy towards anything American. Even if they did join with your hypothetical Vancouver, there's no way they'd identify with something that clamed any kinship to the US. (In my opinion, of course, but damnit! I ain't no Yank and never will be! You seem to be fairly clearly American, and laying claim to my country makes me go GRRR.)

I'll ignore the fact that, officially, Vancouver and the lower mainland are a death zone, while the BC coast is under Haida control. :)

(Oh, and it's also made fairly clear that while the Old Religion dominates MacKenzie lands, the majority of Montival as a whole is Christian.)

Its fanfic, of course it ignores one tiny footnote of the book. Thanks for the updated info though, but I already made a new map for CY 20 based on the info I was able to find from SM Stirling's website and google map.

Besides, Canada is arguably the most unnecessary country on Earth; and if I'm ever President I will conquer you; MUWAH HA HA HAA!

Culturally insignificant differences between the United States, only 60 million people, a population hugging the border with the US, militarily dependent on the United States. Economically its little more than a natural-resource exporter.

GigoXXIII Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I can see your point in this case although I'd not call the cultural differences insignificant, there may not be many but they are important to and for the Canadians (minus the Qubecans which is a whole other ballgame)and many of them originated with the empire loyalist from the American Revolution/Uprising.

I don't needed to point out that many Canadians are still and allways will be avid Monarchist which inself is a big difference.

In case this came across as rude, arrogant, combative or generaly bad in anyway I appologise as that was not my intent

You seem to have created a Super-society. I applaud your imagination and ingenuity but advise you to be careful, super-societies are the Mary Sues of this kind of fiction.

Also, on a story-related note, I take it that you don't agree with S.M. Stirling's stance on monarchies? This map would seem to make the lands in the south as the bad guys, which worries me as I have become quite attached to those territories and characters. Still, this is masterfully done. I am in envy of your skills.

I am fundamentally opposed to any unelected head of state/government. I don't care if they are popular among a population of undereducated farmers, artisans and soldiers, no MAN (considering that all but a few of these societies are patriarchies) should have that much unchecked power.

I am attached to the characters in the books as well, but the second generation of characters just rub me the wrong way with how great they think Monarchy's are; and that's always how it starts. The first leader is usually a hero of the people who takes power as a duty to his countrymen and nothing more; their children and maybe grandchildren are usually good leaders as well, but see the hereditary monarchy less as a matter of self sacrifice and duty and more as a position of necessity, by the time the third or fourth generation comes about you have a real bastard who believes he and he alone has the right to rule, specifically a Divine Right to rule; and our founders had to pay a great expense of blood to make their case of how wrong such a system is.

Well, essentially heat engines in any form (internal combustion, steam, sterling, explosions of any kind) are no longer possible, neither is electricity or high pressure gasses (this is entirely limited to the Earth an non-biological sources). Its not really a change in the laws of physics, but rather that something intervened with them.

I'm fairly sure by that point the UK controls much of the east coast and Caribbean, though this clearly your own story.

My only actually quibble is that the colour of the UK's possessions is too close that that of the evil republic. Maybe you could make it a nice red or pastel pink?

Otherwise, nice one.

I never said the Second Republic was evil, hell they're the only non-feudalistic society left. But I will change the British territories to a lighter shade of blue, or the shade of red on the Union Jack.

I think it's mentioned that only Britain and a handful of Scandinavian countries survived. And that by that point (according to the author), Europe was split between the restored British Empire, which is some medieval-Victorian hybrid, and "Nordland."
