Motto: All A Man Has Is His Word

Anthem: 'Harvest Moon Hanging' [Composed by Maylene and the Sons of Disaster]

[Lyrics:

We have all been cursed by the dark horse

Second chances few and far between

There's no halo hanging up above me

The ministry is equal to the disease

(Let's go down into the water)

Hear the choir on the shoreline sing

(The Mississippi ain't the river Jordan)

It won't wash me clean

Harvest moon hanging in the night sky

Medicine is flowing through my veins

(Take that anyway you want to)

I would consider it some sage advice

(There's a devil sitting on my shoulder)

He's speaking to me tonight

There is a struggle inside me, salvation keeps pulling me

I go back and forth and back again

A thousand pills won't cure my bad luck

I think this is who I was born to be

Another day standing at the crossroads

The holy ghost creeping up on me

(Let's go down into the water)

Hear the choir on the shoreline sing

(The Mississippi ain't the river Jordan)

It won't wash me clean

There is a struggle inside me, salvation keeps pulling me

I go back and forth and back again

(There's a revelation when you come undone and your

whole world comes unwound)

I'm unwound it keeps coming

(Every shadow comes from the sun)

So let the sun shine down upon me

Salvation keeps pulling me

I go back and forth and back again

Let the circle be unbroken swing low sweet chariot

Stuck in this broken life trying to be divine in the eyes of God]

The States

The Mississippi Confederation has 3 states; Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. They are all culturally tied to an extent, but also each have a cultural identity all their own. The State level of government Hierarchy is very important in the Mississippi Confederation. While the central government has absolute control over war, foreign policy and things of that nature, the state is able to dictate most of its own internal affairs and laws.

The Territories

The Mississippi Confederation has 2 territories, Nebraska and Kansas. Much like the states they are very similar, but they also have individual identities. They are also similar to the states in that they run their own affairs for the most part, relying on the Central Government almost exclusively for economic support and military defense.

The Confederated Ground Forces

The Confederated Ground Forces operate as the main Ground Force and Military Response for the Mississippi Confederation. Upon formation, it was agreed that the central government would have sole control over the entirety of the military. This was to avoid the slowing effect of organizing three seperate militaries into one effective response.

Infantry:

Standard Infantry Tactical Body Armor

HL2Combinesoldier.jpg

Standard Infantry Tactical Body Armor affords prtection of all vital areas. These include the head, neck, chest, abdomen, groin, thighs, shins, deltoids, forearms, elbows and knees. Hardened communications gear are standard with each unit. The visors also include multiple vision modes. All units also protect against biological attacks and agents, as well as moderately protect against nuclear radiation. [i.e. This means that a soldier wearing Standard Infantry Tactical Body Armor can fight in an irradiated area for several hours before having to evacuate.]

There are also many styles of camoflague. Pictureed above is the standard Urban camoflague design. Others are Desert, Jungle, Forest, Tundra and Winter.

Standard Secret Service Tactical Body Armor

Combine_prison_guard_red.jpg

The only difference between Standard Secret Service Tactical Body Armor and Standard Infantry Tactical Body Armor is that it has a different color scheme and thicker armor on the chest and abdomen. Secret Service are tasked not only with guarding high-profile government officials, but also with guarding important government sites.

Standard Infantry Rifle- C36 + C36S [Carbine]

3-assault-rifle.jpg

The C36 is a clone of the famous G36 rifle, save for its cartridge. In order to gain superior stopping power without significantly sacrificing muzzle velocity or accuracy. The answer was to chamber the 6.8mm round, a compromise between the popular 5.56x45mm round and the 7.62x39mm round used by the AK-47. The result was a rifle with surprising versatility and flexibility. The C36 also has a carbine variant, the C36S [short].

National Wonders and Important National Improvements

National Wonders

New Orleans Stock Exchange

London_Stock_Exchange.jpg

The Kansas City Stock Exchange is the pinnacle of the Confederate economy. Almost as much of a symbol of accomplishment as it is of economic success, the Kansas City Stock Exchange is the central hub for all trading in the Confederacy. It has helped transform Kansas City into the financial capital of the Confederacy and has attracted much international business to the country.

Important National Improvements

Banks

There are 5 major banks within the Confederacy: Great Southern, Mississippi National Bank, Harper and Howell Banking, Guarantee Bank and Liberty Bank.

Hospitals (Clinics)

There are 5 major hospital organizations in the Mississippi Confederation. They are Cox Health, St. John's Hospital, Hoffenburg Health, Nebraska Health Organization and St. James Medical.

National Hospital (Hospital)

NKCH%20exterior.jpg

The largest and most advanced hospital in the Confederacy is the North Kansas City Hospital, in Kansas City East, MO. It boasts the latest in Confederate health and medical technology. It is also home to the lab where most of the advancements are born.

Cameron Drydock

Cameron Drydock is a naval base in Cameron, LA.

Classified- North Island, Marsh Island and Mandeville Shipyards

NI_0605_Shipyards1.jpg

The shipyards at North Island, Marsh Island and Mandeville, LA are the sites of building and docking of the most advanced ships in the Confederate Navy.

New Orleans Harbor

screen-032.jpg

New Orleans Harbor by far the largest harbor in the Confederacy. It handles large percentages of imports and exports from the nation, being at the mouth of the Mississippi and the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico.

Embassy Row (Foreign Ministry)

Embassy Row is located in downtown St. Louis and is of course home to the housing and relations complexes of foreign diplomats to the Confederation.

Department of Overwatch Field Offices (Intelligence Agencies)

FBI_Washington_Field_Office.JPG

The Department of Overwatch has two field offices, one in St. Louis and another in Little Rock. The Department of Overwatch can be likened to the CIA or other intelligence departments in other nations.

American Football Stadiums

Arrowhead_Stadium_001_LA_LR.jpg

As of now, there are five American Football stadiums in the Mississippi Confederation. The following is a list of stadium locations and teams; Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams, New Orleans Saints, Omaha Prowlers and the Little Rock Bulls.

State Universities (Schools)

collegecollague.png

Because of the structure of the nation as a confederacy, there are two levels of universities, State level and National level. State schools are equivalent to state schools in other nations while National schools are equivalent to Ivy League schools and other especially prestigious universities.

The five State Universities are the University of Nebraska, the University of Kansas, Missouri State University, the University of Arkansas and Louisiana State University.
