The United States of America, commonly United States, was a historic state that existed from 1776 to 1911 as a federal republic. The country was majority English but had sizeable African, Native American, German and other European minorities who were scattered all over the territory of the state and their languages were in widespread use, with English (and sometimes German on State level) being the only official language, however. For most of its time, the U.S. were demihuman-avertive in its policies, sometimes even allowing enslavement of certain races, especially among African and Native American ethnicities which were subject to (formally illegal but still practiced) slavery amongst all Terran races.

History

The United States were a collection of British colonies before their independence, which was caused by tax- and authority-based oppresive action following the budget lulls of the British Empire after the lost Seven Years' War. After the Independence Wars, the first 13 States were formed as federation.
Throughout the late 18th and early 19th century, the United States underwent a rapid territorial and population growth as a result of being the first successfully independent colony and due to multiple offensive wars against Mexico and Native tribal lands. This expansion has brought in considerable wealth and secured safe sources of natural resources for American industry, at the expense of weakened territorial integrity, especially in the midwest and west.
This territorial integrity weakness was abused in the Ghost Dance Wars, which sought to stablish a free Native American council and managed to win the wars quite easily, forcing the US to retreat back to the Mississippi, with the Status of states like Texas, California, Iowa and other already settled areas west of the Misssissippi River unclear. The Southern States, which already were dissatisfied with the North's policies, was enragened when they heard that the north bent to the will of "mere Indians", a crisis of political instability which lead to the US civil war in 1863 even.
When the United States lost the civil war against the Confederacy, it lost a considerable amount of territory to the Confederation itself in 1868, and was stripped the southern part of California as a CS corridor to the pacific in exchange for CS withdrawal from maryland and Delaware.




The Dominion of Canada had been a British colony since the 1600s and 1700s but gained significant relevance following the process of industrialization in the 19th century and the accession of the United States as a viable trading partner. In 1856, when the British Empire was declared a federal republic, Canada was given a status as separate autonomous federal entity with significant own power, and imperial royalists already advocated for a monarchy-based independence and giving the royal family a place of refuge, should the republican government exile the royal family or other noble families.
When the royal family was actually exiled in 1868, the Canadian state government immediately, under pressure of the large royalist faction, offered the royal family refuge which had previously left the British isles towards German-occupied Netherlands. Queen Victoria was re-inaugurated as Queen of the Dominion of Canada, declared as the British Empire in-exile under the name Commonwealth of Canada (British Empire in-exile).
The Commonwealth was on friendly terms with the Danube Monarchy since its emergence in 1862, as it was a constitutional monarchy as well and was also (partially) lead by a great witch. The Commonwealth managed to stabilize quickly and received funds to reach the technological jump terms but the relationship worsened when the first reports on demihuman status in society were released, and reached a low point when the Commonwealth joined the Rpublic of Britain's war efforts in the Great War in 1903.
In 1865, they managed to crack down upon the separatist movements of Quebec and managed to appease them by giving Quebec a separate regional entity status and made the Empire officially bilingual, much to the approval of France as well. Canada received another wave of scientists and refugees from Britain in 1867, when the Party of National Recreation (the City of London Lodge) assumed power in the old Republic of Britain, banning Democratic elections and forcing Republican/Parliamentarian factions to exile to Australia and New Zealand, which had become hubs of Democratic discourse following the Eureka Rebellions 1854-1858.
In 1872, they were permitted to take control of the Sandwich Islands and were awared Alaska in 1875 following delayed discussion over the status of Russia following the Great Victory Congress. Further territorial expansions were limited to expeditions into the northern Parts of Canada and assuming power in smaller Polynesian islands and islets as well as islands and territories temporarily occupied during the Great War following Canada's entry into the war in 1903.
After Canada lost the war, Questions regarding the legitimacy of the Canadian government filled up the political discourse of the nation, as it was occupied by both Germany and Japan after 1907 and its future was unclear. Quebec independence movements gained popularity again (and succeeded in 1911/1912) and calls from Japan to establish an independent Native American state were seen as the first presages of a territorial divide in Canada.
Following the Albion Rebellion and the increasing influence of the New Albion movement in Ontario, as well as the Irish refugee crisis following the Invasion of Ireland by Britannia in 1909, the Commonwealth almost simultaneously collapsed under the different pressures from inside and outside as the United States did, which is commonly known as the American Collapse.

The Commonwealth of Canada was formerly known as the Victorian Empire in older Rise of the Night versions. It had the role of the proper British Empire in-exile in control of the colonies, until its role as major power was transferred to the Republic of Britain and New Albion in December 2018.
