"... As Federalist troops advance past Charleston, South Carolina has finally come under the protection of the Federal Republic of America. The securing of North Carolina is almost complete, with a pocket of insurgents in Raleigh showing resistance. Other than that, the region is under FRA control. Meanwhile, the troops stationed in Texas have finally crossed the border from Arkansas to Mississippi, and are on their way home..."

*click*

President Engelmann clicked off the news, sighed a breath of relief, and turned to Secretary of State Kunis with a weary, stressed look.

"!@#$%^&* they're going home, they're going to the worst possible position in this entire mess... It would appear, Nikolai, that we're out of the woods for now. I was worried for a moment, with those fools calling themselves 'Mordor' or what have you, declaring independence in Georgia of all places. How many casualties from the campaign total, from franc-tiruers?"

Nikolai rolled his eyes to the right, and then spoke in a raspy voice, "Approximately three dozen soldiers and a couple of tanks. Mostly poor $%&@s riding around in Humvees thinking it'd be a cakewalk, instead of understanding the serious nature of this operation, or even stopping to consider IEDs. Quick lesson to those who haven't served in Texas or Arkansas, I guess."

Stephen Engelmann nodded, sighed, and then handed Nikolai Kunis a suitcase. "We're granting them independence. We got the OK from the Greenlanders, not that we wouldn't have done it anyway. Go meet with them in North Carolina, and be careful. Just because you were a master at terrorism and insurgency doesn't mean you're not a mortal. Of course, don't allow them to assume the title of Mordor. Ridiculous."

"What about Congress?" Nikolai asked, snarkily-- fully knowing the Congress was AA-TPW controlled, and the Vice-President was an ineffective former President. Nikolai and Stephen shared a chuckle, before Nikolai saluted the President, and left the room with a muttering of "Not a convicted terrorist..."

Stephen Engelmann jumped on the horn and hollered for a line to the loons who claimed to be establishing Mordor, to issue this message:

Secretary of State FRA sent to Fayetteville. Meet military detachment there regarding establishment of sovereign nation, division of the Carolinas.

You will be followed by predator drones and aircraft, do not fire on us or you will be fired upon.

Thanks.

The jet descended into Fayetteville, on a military strip outside of town, and Nikolai stepped off of the plane. He was escorted by military personnel to meet with General Engelmann in city hall, who had a peculiar name all considering. When they met, Nikolai even noted they had similar build and features, although significantly different facial features. General Engelmann was severely burned alongside the left of his face, from the cultural revolutions and pitched battles within the FRA a short time ago... to which Nikolai had contributed. This was going to be an awkward meeting.

He saluted the General, paid his dues to him as a military man, and the two entered the hallway of the city hall to await their guests.

Lord Sauron, dressed in a black suit, arrived in Fayetteville alongside his nine advisors, also, clad in black suits.

The cars pulled up outside the Hall, and all ten occupants stepped out and walked into the building to meet with the FRA gentlemen.

Turning into the hallways Sauron spotted the grizzled old General and a man next toh im who must have been Nikolai, and quickly strode forward to introduce himself.

Reaching out to shake Nikolais hand he was saying:

"Thank you for meeting myself and my advisors gentlemen, they shall stay in the hall whilst we have our meeting. I am Lord Sauron by the way" he said this with the eloquence of a man well tuned to kissing political $@!.

Nikolai looked at his hand and grasped it loosely for a quick pump. He raised an eyebrow, and growled out "Lord Sauron? Are you !@#$ting me? If that's your actual name, I'm sorry for you, but I've come under instructions to prevent the Mordor nonsense. If you want to change your name after you're established, whatever, but we will not allow a Mordor into existence. That said, we've laid out the following plan for the division of the Carolinas between the FRA and a new member-state of the North American community. You seem interested in being that state, so we are showing the plans to you. It'll be divided from Spartanburg down to Myrtle beach..."

He placed down a map, and pointed at two locations. "Here, and here," he spoke as he dragged his finger from one to the other. "We want Charleston, but not all of South Carolina. This is in full compliance with the Macon treaty, and is all perfectly legal."

"Are these agreeable? We brought a treaty along, to seal the deal-- so to speak, that would make this all legitimate."

"Sauron is my second name, my first name is Mairon, although it is rare people referr to me as such. I served for many years in a paramilitary company and so, second names became the normal way to adress people... Old habits die hard I guess." replied Sauron, staring intently to the mans face.

"Those lands are of course acceptable sir, we are not men who will turn away such an offer of generosity, and I understand your pretence inregards to the name Mordor, We do very much like the name, however my nine advisors waiting in the other room, concluded it sounded like a very combative name, a name that makes people shudder and think of war. We have Decided on New Eden as a new name." came Saurons voice yet again.

He stared at him for a second, "It doesn't remind me of war, it reminds me of Lord of the Rings. Even in my old homeland, we knew of that. But New Eden is perfectly acceptable. So here's the treaty..."

He slammed two sheets of paper down, and pointed to the X where Sauron was supposed to sign. "As soon as you sign this paper, North Carolina and northern South Carolina are yours, sir. We'll withdraw. From what I hear, we'll need the troops in our homeland soon anyway."

Treaty of Spartanburg

Through negotiation, the undersigned agree towards the splintering of the Carolinas into two distinct parts, one under the jurisdiction and rule of the Federal Republic of America (FRA), and the other under the jurisdiction of New Eden.

Article One

The undersigned agree that along a line from Spartanburg and Myrtle Beach, a border will be drawn, policed, and established fully between the two nations of the FRA and New Eden.

Article Two

New Eden is granted independence away from the FRA, but is subject to 90 days of inspections to guarantee the safety of North America and the FRA. New Eden has legitimate control over the territory of North Carolina, and Northern South Carolina, as determined in Article One.

Article Three

New Eden is granted a guarantee of independence from the FRA; this guarantee can be canceled with 48 hours' notice. Any nations attacking New Eden will be considered to have attacked the FRA. In return,

Signed for the FRA,

President Stephen Engelmann

Secretary of State Nikolai Kunis

Signed for New Eden,

Lord Sauron

"It is done"

Nikolai looked up at Sauron and shook his hand, and grinned a wolfish grin.

"Welcome to North America, Lord Sauron, may your nation be prosperous. We will begin withdrawing troops from what is now North Carolina, and we'll keep an ambassador in your nation. If you ever need the FRA, we will be right next door. Thank you, sir."

He nodded his farewells, saluted the general, and walked out, and off to deliver the happy news to the President. The general saluted Lord Sauron, and had his men escort the man across the new-found border.

A nation was born.
