E Pluribus Imperium by YNot1989 E Pluribus Imperium by YNot1989
Warning ASB ahead:

2012: The Euro finally collapses as the European debt crisis consumes the continent. Riots consume Europe's major cities, and several governments begin to collapse. President Obama orders US troops stationed in European bases to put down the mobs.

2013: Pro-Democracy protesters in Saudi Arabia go violent after the government, bleeding money with diminishing oil reserves, abolishes the year old Food Price Controls leaving the many in starvation. The US deploys its forces in the country to secure the capitol.

2014: After months of deadlock made only worse by record low approval ratings, the US Congress fails to pass a budget for FY 2015. With the European stability still in question, and forces stretched thin, the President signs an emergency budget, WITHOUT Congressional approval. Despite an outcry from Congressmen and Senators, American administrative officials follow the President's budget to the T.

2017: The 28th 29th and 30th Amendments are passed by state special conventions. The new amendments do the following: The US Congress is abolished and legislative powers are shifted over to electronic voting; Presidential Term Limits are removed; private corporations are defined to not have the same rights as individual citizens.

2018: The House and Senate chambers are converted to hold a large network of computers to handle all legislative and administrative matters. After votes are tallied the system recommends the appropriate tax to be levied to best serve the country's interests.

2020: The President signs the Pax Americana Act, officially annexing all territory with US military bases. The same year the US engages in a number of wars to unify North America.

2041: The long standing cold war with the BRIC nations continues, but the American Empire stands virtually untouchable. With its navy outfitted with Railguns, unmanned drones and traditional nuclear ordinance, all shielded by ground, sea and space based laser arrays, little can be done to counter the American Empire.

... silly I know, but I had an argument with this gal on DA today whose either spoke the worst English ever or had the crappiest translator program I've ever seen, and kept accusing me of being some kind of tyrannical monster because I made the case that civilian casualties in war are unavoidable while tragic. Also I just wanted to see how an actual American Empire as we are so often portrayed would actually rise to power... short of us all loosing our collective minds this is this has the least amount of holes I think.

This map remind me of an manga by the name "Red Eyes". The setting is a war beetween East European factions, after the (at least partly) collapse of a US World State. Space/orbital and nuclear tech has been lost (though later a major plotpoint), leaving the factions at a late Cold War/90s tech level + some aspects straight out of WW2+ armoured suits.

The series is as hammy as an Stallone film, though have some nice technical drawings + adds strategic level to the conflict.

Page 8 to 19 should sum it up:

I would like to know how in the hell they annexed North Korea. That would be a neat story to write. Building a map or series of them outlining the strategies used in the war would also be very cool.

Its amazing what you can accomplish once you accept that you're an Empire. America went Roman on North Korea.

Pretty good, although the eastern portion of NATO would likely side with US against the BRICS nations (particularly Russia and China).  I think Argentina would also end up being annexed if not at least end up entrenched in the American sphere of influence, essentially fucking over Brazil.  Lastly, I also doubt the US would completely avoid Africa, especially considering how involved the US military has been in recent decades in Northeast Africa (including the African Horn), Morocco, and the Congo region.  At the very least, Liberia would be annexed.

If you really think about it-Doesn't this map exist today? (2014)
Until Europe can truly become the "United States of Europe": It will remain weak or most likely, it may soon become controlled from Berlin as a powerful Germany reemerges. Most of Asia outside China depend on The United States for their defense from an ever growing China and unstable Russia. The Americans have a quasi control over the Middle East today simple for the fact that it would never let Russia nor China control the flow of oil from this area-The same rule goes from the northern countries of South America. I think most of Africa would be a dependent of the Empire for stability reasons.

Unlike the British Empire-Common Americans won't think of it as an "Empire" as the idea of imperialism is look as something that is "bad"....

Yes, because you stole the privileges that we gave you! Proper Laws, industry, a lingua Franca, modern economics... all that has really propelled you forward has been a sense of arrogance and denial about the past! We even (peacefully, may I add!) banned slavery before you did! Coming from a country which claims to be the "land of the free," that is sheer hypocrisy!

As Norway aint part of the EU, we wouldnt go down with it...
So any attempt to assimilate Norway into this American Empire, would have to be a invasion.

 Norway would probably go down with the EU as would Iceland and Turkey because Europe as a whole would be affected even the Americas aren't safe from the EU debt crisis though if you get Norway, why not protect and annex the rest of Scandinavia as well?

There would not really need to be much military action to get Canada and Mexico to unite with the USA. Canadians would be fine with it as long as we get to determine the medical insurance system and to put responsible management into the treasury. Besides, there are millions of Canadians in the USA already. We control a large chunk of US industry already including a good chunk of the banking system.

Myself as a Canadian, I have lived 10 years of my life in the USA, I own 3 homes in the USA and I consider the border as a speed bump anyway. My Canadian daughter is married to a US citizen, owns a home there already and has been on a full ride at a US university getting a PhD in civil engineering. She already has a US `Secret`clearance and her husband has a `Top Secret. Eventually she will be running a major US government department.

My point is that the US and Canada are so intertwined already that it would not take much of a crisis to unite them.

The biggest fear we have north of the border is that a union would result in millions of poor Americans coming north and overwhelming our medical care system.

With 15% of Mexico already in the USA, I see little issue ther. The question really is why would the USA want Mexico.

America is my home country and as such my opinion is biased, but it is my favorite country. I like most other countries (depending on the point in time we're discussing, but lets stick to the present day), in fact there are very few I outright dislike (North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Japan, etc) and really I can usually find some aspects that I at least admire about them just the same. So all in all, don't confuse patriotism and proximity of my birth for jingoism.
