History[edit | edit source]

Pre-Reorganization[edit | edit source]

The United States of America was established by the U.S. Declaration of Independence in 1776, when the 13 Colonies rebelled against Great Britain in the American Revolution.

Deeper information on the pre-reorganization history of the United States can be found here.

The Great Reorganization[edit | edit source]

According to the Third Canon (often known as the 2020s Canon), in late 2020, the United States of America experienced a process known as the Great Reorganization of the United States of America (or simply, the Great Reorganization).

At this time, as the term of President Donald J. Trump was coming to it’s end, it was decided by the United States Congress that the 50 states of the Union should be reorganized into 5 new states: Fremont, Superior, Dixie, Greater Appalachia, and Atlantic. This reorganization was underprecedented in United States history; no mass rearranging of the U.S. subdivisions had ever occurred before, especially not one of this magnitude.

The U.S. Congress oversaw the reformation of America into a new nation of 5 states and, in early 2021, Ninjjadragon was elected as the 46th President of the United States of America; the first President ever to govern this new 5-state America.
