Return to That Godforsaken Country
The United States of America
The USA continues to refuse recognition of the CSA as an actual independent country, but has accepted the truce that ended the war in 1865. In addition, the USA is hostile toward the UK, and the UK’s Dominion of Canada, because of the assistance that nation provided to the CSA late in the war. East of the Mississippi, both the northern and southern borders of the USA are heavily garrisoned, although it does not appear that war is about to break out on either border immediately. It recognizes the Imperial government of Maximilian but there is a great deal of support in some circles for the Juarista movement. The USA also does not fully recognize the independence of the Sioux and Coyote nations, but treats them as it treats the CSA, albeit with less overt hostility. Its long-term goal is to return its lost lands into the fold, although that will take some time, and to reimpose the Monroe Statement and get the UK and France out of American affairs.
