The United Confederate States of The Seceded SouthEdit
The United Confederate States of The Seceded South is a massive, economically powerful nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, cynical population have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Seceded South's national animal is the southern stallion, and its currency is the southern dollar.

Slavery within the Seceded South is a bit different from that of the old Confederacy. Though the buying and selling of slaves still continues as it did in the 1800's the manner in which slaves live and work are a bit different. Slaves are now bought to work on large planatations, which are by a new definition large commmunities with towns and cities. Slaves are given a farm on the plantation of which they will work and give over their crops to the land owners. Slaves are paid for their services which means that in due time a slave could technically buy their freedom. However, minimum wage laws do not apply to slaves since they are seen as property and so slaves are usually paid next to nothing for their services.

A Brief History of the Seceded SouthEdit
In 1865 after losing the Civil War General Robert E. Lee commissioned several key southern official of the old Confederacy to devised a plan of reunification should the Union ever fall entirely. After the plans were made they were secretly archived in the library of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and was kept hidden by the descendant of it's creators. 141 years after the plan was made the Union did fall and those sworn to keep the plan a secret came together and brought the plan before the North Carolina State Senate. Fearing that if they didn't act soon the people of North Carolina would plunge themselves into chaos, the Senate adopted the plan and began to rebuild the Confederacy. Word soon spread to both South Carolina and Georgia of the plan and they sent formal requests to North Carolina to be admitted into the new Confederacy. North Carolina agreed and The Reunified Confederacy of the Seceded South was born
