Its difficult to say, but generally speaking the Empire, N'York, and Kells are are always vying for dominance of the region, but none can realistically do more than capture the same border territories from eachother.

I gather from what I'v read and putting two and two together that monarchy is the most common form of government once again or at the very least only really competes with theocracies ?

Yes, as is typical with societies on the verge of collapse, a few powerful people come to be the ones in charge.

How common are other forms of government such as Cascadias meritocracy or is that a unique case ?

Its not a meritocracy its a Technocracy, but even it suffered from autocratic rule. Only recently did it get the reforms to make it a Technocratic Republic. There are a few city-states with similar forms of government, but for the most part, Autocracy is the the go-to system of government by these nations. Though to be fair, very few of these nations are Hereditary monarchies, almost all of them are elective monarchies.

Elective monarchies been a result/legacy of the US having been a republic that had elections before the collapse right ?

So...forgive me for my optimism, but... is there any hope of North America being united under a single banner? Or will one of these rulers end up going the way of rulers like Alexander the Great or Napoleon?

It is unlikely that America would be united under a single government for at least another five centuries. They'll have their Napoleons, and Hitlers, and Stalins, but until they reach a near-post-scarcity economic structure like Europe has, and are united by some common cause or defense, it is very unlikely.

I see! So aside from Cascadia are there any democracies? Assuming Cascadia's a democratic state or something like that.

:iconynot1989:
YNot1989 Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cascadia only recently became a Constitutional Technocracy; and the Holy Americans are an Elective Monarchy, but beyond that no such luck.

You'll have to fill me in, what's a Technocracy exactly? Sorry for all the questions, just a very interesting scenario :P

You can wikipedia it for more details but a Technocracy is essentially a government run by scientists, engineers, and technologists; people who have expertise in a given field and are put in charge of that area. Cascadia does this through a collection of guilds who elect members from their own ranks to become part of the central or local government. Originally Cascadia was a Technocratic Oligarchy, or Technarchy, which worked well until corruption inevitably sat in.
