Two Continents, One Republic by YNot1989 Two Continents, One Republic by YNot1989
The decades long recovery since the World War has finally ended and America stands as the unquestioned military and economic hegemony of the world. The only Nation in history to have conquered two continents, the United States of America is constantly shifting to accommodate the needs of governing such a massive territory. Be it the Civil war that nearly rendered the country asunder or the constant rebellions, riots, and protests by separatist groups, the Federal Government of the United States is forced to constantly search for the right balance of Freedom vs. Tyranny. Through a combination of a strong welfare state, a vibrant economy made possibly by unending natural resources and a huge population, and the possibility of military intervention, the United States has, so far, managed to keep the Republic together.

...

This is a redo of an old scenario of mine known as "Our Revolution," where the course of American history is changed by a few unlucky time travelers. Don't ask me how many states there are I lost count.

Depending on where you live the definition varies, but most people on DA define the Americas as two continents rather than one, so I named it accordingly. Personally I think the Americas should be designated one continental mass.

Does the US happen to have overseas territories? I see the Philippines, several African nations, and maybe even Indochina as being possibilities to be part of the United States?

No, they have a hard enough time governing two continents without having to worry about overseas territories.

Is Hawaii still part of the U.S? I see that Alaska isn't one of the states. Another question, is the US allies with the territories or do they have tensions among each other?

The US owns Hawaii, but its part of a single Pacific Superstate. The territories are in good graces with the DC, they're just not populated enough for statehood.
