Oscar, leader of the revolution, steps to the podium in Cleveland's Progressive field.

"People of Ohio, of America, of the world. We have fought a long, bloody fight for freedom. We had no future in the formerly corrupted Midwest Republic. The People, us, were thought of us property. God, or whoever is up there governing us, did not want this. We were not meant to be slaves, we were not meant to be bought.

You cannot take away freedom. You cannot stop a man's will to live. Life will not be halted, not put on hold. We are to live freely, without corruption from the disgusting, un-American like companies such as "Leaf Corporation".

As the former United State's Declaration of Independence famously said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

The new nation that is born through the ashes of the corrupted Midwest Republic shall hold these values to heart. We will live to them, or cease to exist. Slavery, oppression, discrimination, all of it, is not to be accepted here. We are free men, and we shall stand that way.

The Midwest's fatal flaw was that they did not have the support of the people. Without the hearts and souls of the citizens, they were NOTHING. The people are for the unalienable rights given to us by God. And our land will preach these values to other nations. We are for justice.

We are the United States of America. Unfortunately, we must start small. We are just a single state, Ohio. But like any empire, in our case, an empire of justice, we will build ourselves upwards. Peacefully, of course, for violent empires are not free. But we shall build, and extend ourself to re-create the United States of America. No land outside of our former territories shall be touched by us, except in the event we are invaded ourselves.

The peaceful reunion of the United States has begun.


As the new United States, are first task is to repair the damage done from the rebellion, and establish corporations to employ our citizens. We must work now people."

"If Great Britain cannot recognize a people's Republic, then what can they? With the support of the entire Ohio population, save a few die-hard loyalists, we are a united country. What is so wrong with our land that we our un-recognisable?"

"That is not a plan. We are here to reunite America peacefully. If a territory is unwilling to join, we are not to do anything about it. In fact, we do not want stable countries joining the union. We work for the interests of the people. Perhaps we could've worded this much better. Apologies, Oscar hasn't had sleep in four days."

What do you mean, "the revolution"?

Also, watch your step. Don't do something if it angers many countries, especially your neighbors. Many countries that repeatedly antagonized other countries rarely lasted for long.[/quote]

[b]A Statement From The United States of The Islands[/b]

The United States of The Islands hereby recognizes the United States of America. Let Freedom Reign.

[b]Private To The United States[/b]

Don't be troubled with England's decision not to recognize you.. I guess they don't want the seed of Freedom to replant itself in North America.

While the United States of America spread democracy around the world and was the sole superpower before the Great Schism, it fell and has yet to be replaced. The succeeding nations since then have done a damn well enough job without the unification of the continent and the Boston Federacy, for one, will not be reverting back to the old Union, peacefully or otherwise. Despite statements to the contrary, this declaration that you [b]will[/b] extend yourself to re-create the United States and that you will try to get land inside of your former territories is particularly worrying, and for that reason the Boston Federacy will not recognize the legitimate government or do business with it.

We hope your citizens talk sense to you, because you've already started off on the wrong foot.

[[OOC: Snape said in '07 that real life history happened up until the start of CN, when all the nations just collapsed and began anew, so I go by that whenever I reference the past, [b]especially[/b] since there are multiple competing and confusing histories that come and go as nations rise and fall.]]

"And Boston has chosen their path. We will not deny you your rights of freedom. We will work our best at reuniting the country, but again we should not and will not pose ourselves as a risk to freedom. It is the people's chose to join us, as we've said."

Great Britain does not recognise the USA because safe, stable and well respected powers like the Empire of Pravus Ingruo exist. Moreover every last incarnation of the United States has failed. We are certain you will aswell and it is less paper work simply not recognising you.

The revolution that happened a few days ago.

And we will not "antagonize our neighbors." We are at a troublesome, confusing and challenging part of our nation's life. Apologies.

"Alright, Britain. Yes, the stable power of Pravus Ingruo exists, the one that just went through civil war. We do not deny their right as a sovereign country, but we wouldn't call them the most stable. Just as we wouldn't call ourselves the most stable.

Every last incarnation of the United States has failed, you say. Then we shall break that pattern."

OOC - This could be fun to see done, I have a feeling America could heat up with all the powers presently competing...or soon to compete.

Burma noted the formation of a new power bearing the old banner of America with indifference.

Good to hear. I hope we can meet sometime.

Regarding the revolution, we're in the process of reconstruction and prosecuting the criminals, including Leaf Corporation. You should stay in tune of the news coming from our country. There's going to be hundreds of indictments after hundreds, and I'm betting they're going to try and fail to weasel out of the mess.

[b]Official Imperial Statement[/b]

There are few things that the late Michael Harland and I agreed upon. One of them, however, was that the United States of America was a scourge upon this great continent and should be destroyed every time it should attempt to raise it's failed and corrupt head again. The old Pravus Ingruo has done this three times. The new one will do it again should we have to.

Due to the long history that the United States of America plunging this continent into war, and pursuant to the fact that this nation rose from revolution directly on our border, and due to the fact that their stated intention is to reunite the old United States of America, putting the states of the Empire directly in their crosshairs, the Empire hereby enacts a blockade on the United States of America. All land borders, both from the Empire proper and from the Imperial protectorate, are closed to this new United States of America. All roads are closed off. Airspace is closed. Passage through the Niagara is prohibited.

We will not stand for the corruption and warmongering of the United States to rise once again on our continent.

Signed,

"We fought for the people and freedom. To protect your petty interests, to protect your definite position as Emperor, you will destroy the People's Republic? We shake our heads in disgust.

And we have not once put you in the crosshairs. Perhaps we could solve this like gentleman and use words instead of guns. A meeting in a neutral country could solve these problems."

You directly stated your intent to re-unify the former lands of the United States' first incarnation--an action which requires assimilating land owned by many different nations, including Pravus Ingruo.
