Holy American Union by YNot1989 Holy American Union by YNot1989
---Holy American Union---
Capitol: None, Union Senate seated in Sacramento
Language: Californian
Religion: American Evangelism (94%), Mormonism (5%) Atheist Kurzwellianism (1%)
Population: 7 million (364 LY)
Government: Elective Monarchy
*Presimpero: George V, King of Dorado
-----------------------------

With the fall of America came the Chaos Times, an era where human society quickly unraveled, and fell into ignorance, starvation, disease, and war. This was primarily due to the lack of oil that enabled American society, and in no place was the chaos worse than California. A state of 37 million at its peak, once the oil ran out California quickly fell into the worst cases of chaos.

When the water dried up in Los Angels the state quickly fell into infighting over the precious fresh water controlled by the northern half of the state. Thirst and Hunger led to rioting, then starvation, and finally cannibalism. For nearly three centuries, only a handful of communities in California managed to survive, constantly fighting the endless hoards of cannibals, Jaredite Raiders, and Barbarians.

This finally came to an end in BLY 97 when Queen Abila of Fresno led the Great Purge that lasted for nearly thirty years, and wiped out most of the savages from the Valley, and drove the Jaredites back into the Great Basin. Queen Abila claimed the Valley to be under her protection, expanding Fresno's borders, making it the most powerful state in California.

In LY 66 the Kingdom of Fresno and the Hoods of Sacramento and Barbara signed the Treaty of Fernando, uniting the three states as a single confederation, the American Union. In 112 LY, with the establishment of the Angelino Papacy, the American Union took on the name Holy American Union, putting the legitimacy of the elected monarch, the Presimpero (Californian for Imperial President), in the hands of the American Evangelist Church.

Today, the Holy American Union, is one of the continents most powerful nations, and also one of the most Pious. It is presently involved with the Evangelical Quegunta, an effort to purge all of Christiandom of supposed heretics; as well as a long standing conflict with Cascadia, whom they see as a heathen nation.

Recently the Union completed the Seventh Campaign, a bloody religious war against the Mormon Deserets that controlled historic American sites such as the ancient city of Denver and the vaults of Cheyenne Mountain. This campaign ended with the successful, albeit brief, capture of western Colorado, and with it the first opening of Cheyenne Mountain in six centuries before it was closed by the Mountain United States. Inside the ancient military base were exabytes of data, all stored in Carbon based Holographic storage drives; the height of American technology before the fall. Roughly 60% of these drives were deemed unrecoverable by the scholars, however, those that did work, revealed invaluable quantities of lost knowledge from the ancient Americans.

Is Canada part of this American or has it been totally destroyed?

Canada is long gone like the United States by this point, as was the case with most nations after the Collapse. Its about 750 years in the future by this point, and the Holy American Union is really only California and the Sierra Nevada.

Gone as in totally devoid of life or as in barren wasteland covered in ruined cities and the like?

Well there are ruins of course, but really all that happened is that the imaginary line between the US and Canada just kinda evaporated and a bunch of new countries formed from the ashes.

What has happened to American Christians who have stayed loyal to the Pontiff in Rome?

There aren't any left. Rome has been out of contact with America for six centuries.

Wow. I guess Rome will have to try and send people over to preach their gospel when they can.

Although I'm guessing this new brand of American Evangelistic Imperial ideasls would consisder Roman Catholcism heresy.

what is an elective monarchy?
Reply
:iconynot1989:
YNot1989 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Its a form of government where upon the death of the previous monarch, a new one is elected rather than made from an blood relative or heir. In many cases, the various local leaders (Dukes, Earls, other Kings in the case of the Holy Roman Empire) come together and elect one from their own ranks.

2 questions: what does year LY stand for (I get that BLY is Before LY)? and what exactly is Evangelism?

other than that, this is pretty much how the United states will end up. China and the majority of Europe will be devistated also, but not as much
Reply
:iconynot1989:
YNot1989 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LY and BLY mean the Lord's Year, and Before the Lord's Year respectively. In this future, around the year 2344 CE, a child was born in Louisiana, predicted by a Blind Cajun Seer as the Second Coming of Christ. Her birth has since been used as the mark for all dating in North America, with the exception of Cascadia and its various dependencies, which use the Holocene Calendar.

Evangelism refers to the main religious belief of the American continent, led by the American Evangelist Church, which has its own Papacy centered in Los Angeles. The term directly means, "the practice of relaying information about a particular set of beliefs to others who do not hold those beliefs," but is more directly related to Christian Evangelicalism in this context.
