StatsEdit

The Confederation of Carolina and Virginia is a democratic American survivor nation based on the eastern seaboard.

The Confederation of Carolina was created in the Carolinas, on July 22nd, 1963 after the nuclear showdown between the Warsaw Pact and NATO ended. It consists of the coastline areas of the US states of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and eastern Florida, and borders the Federation of Chesapeake on the north and the United Republic of Mississippi on the west.

DoomsdayEdit

World War 3Edit

The attacks were patchy and missed a few major places, with some places badly hit or destroyed and others totally missed by the Soviet/Cuban attack. Several parts of the region were spared.

The Warsaw Pact targets were at:

WP Targets in USA (1962: The Apocalypse) Navy Information Operations Command Sugar Grove was hit by a 15kt nuke that it did not go off! They declared martial law and food rationing in the region in an attempt to save both Virginias from chaos and possible collapse.

HistoryEdit

After DoomsdayEdit

Banbury snow x2 (9)

A long abandoned out-house in the town of Lakeview, in Tuscaloosa County, during the harsh winter of 2009-10.

The attacks were patchy beyond the coast line and only in a few places major value, with some places badly hit an others totally missed by the Soviet/Cuban attack. Many people fled in to the safety of the Appalachian and Allegheny Mountains for several months after it happened.

Navy Information Operations Command Sugar Grove was hit by a 15kt bomb that it did not go off! They declared martial law and food rationing in the region in an atempt to save both Virginias from chaos and possible collapse.

Charlotte, Roanoke, Anderson, (South Carolina), Charlottesville, and Crozet all had there local officals declare similar rules over the next few days and joined in with Sugar Grove's plans.

The nuclear winter lasted between October 1962 and March 1963. A Nuclear Summer then lasted between April 1963 and September 1965.

A cholera also outbreak killed 16,000 in various shanty towns across Carolina and Georgia, between January 1st 1963 and December 21st 1964. Things began to improve after 1965

1965-1975Edit

Farming began to improve in the early 1970's.

The founding of Northern and Miami TerritoriesEdit

Northern Territory and Miami Territory created between 1976 and 1978 out of several rival city and county sized stateless that were mostly peaceful assimilated over the years. They are both organised incorporated territory of the Confederation Carolina. The territories have a population of 2,450,000 and 400,000 respectively.

First contactEdit

It was made with explorers from the Appalachian Republic and Upstate New York in 1968, then the Free Georgia-Florida, Republic of Québec, Jamaica, United Republic of Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Federation of Chesapeake, United Republic of Mississippi and Chicago-Metroland in 1969.

A friendly first contact was made with Free Negro Republic of Alabama-Georgia-Florida in and Iowa early 1971.

Explores from Forgottonia, Oklahoma and Spokane Republic in 1974.

Explorers found the Texan states and South Florida in in 1975. Traders and explores from the Colorado-New Mexico, Mexico, Iceland and the Colorado River Republic arrived in 1989.

Race relations and civil rightsEdit

1976-1989Edit

Contact was made with Cascadia in 1976. The Free Negro Republic of Alabama-Georgia-Florida, United Republic of Tennessee and the Confederation of Carolina and Virginia tried to invade Neo-Confederate Georgia during early and mid 1976 over race relations issues. Florida was subsequently divided between the FNRAGF, NCG and CCV.

1990-2008Edit

Free Negro Republic of Alabama-Georgia-Florida and Neo-Confederate Georgia was given much aid in the form of tents and wooden building materials in 1995 after a heavy hurricane season.

Fishing vessels from Ireland and and Portugal met some Carolina fishing boats just west of the Azores during 1988 and 1998, leading to the first contact between the continents since The Apocalypse of 1962. Ambassadors were swapped between the nations in 1999. Iceland sent an envoy to Carolina in 2002. Iceland and Norway still blame the ex-American nations for starting WW3, since they used to be part of the former USA, who launched the first missile in 1962.

Sadly, a 48-year-old government software consultant died in 2002 in Morrisville, N.C., after inhaling helium from a 20-pound tank during an office party. He will be much missed, his brother said to local journalists.

In May 2003 and June 2004. long range radio signals from Lower Saxony and Ireland were picked up by LW/SW radios in Savannah, Morrisville and Charleston (The one in OTL S. Carolina).

The night of October 30-31, 2012, saw the ATL hurricane Sandy killed 2 and injured 6 in the nation. A 200-foot, 700-ton Venezuelan oil-tanker ship, bound for Quebec, was been pushed up onto the ruined Staten Island. This was after 3 of the crew were washed overboard and found badly wounded on the coast of the former South Carolina.

Political relations are steadily improving with New Mexico-Colorado, the Federation of Chesapeake, Colorado River RepublicKingdom of Michigan and  United Republic of Tennessee  

Political relations are particularly good with the New England Republic (N.E.R), Jamaica, Iceland, the Somme Repubic and the Republic of Québec. The situation is not so good with the Republic of Haiti.
