Nation Information Edit
USNA is a medium sized, well developed, and aging nation at 515 days old with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity whose religion is Hinduism. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of USNA work diligently to produce Fish and Wheat as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. USNA is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. The Military of the USNA has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. USNA allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Free speech is considered taboo in USNA. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. USNA will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
The USNA is located in the Northwest Territories in North America. Due to it's proximity to the North Pole it has long summers. Winters can be very cold and only in the cities can people live in almost complete comfort from the winter.
The USNA was founded on September 10, 2007 in the North West Territories of Canada. While it was initially a difficult area the nation became accustomed to the conditions and successfully created and populated several major city centers. Initially President Pack was it's supreme ruler.
Shortly after its creation the USNA became a member of the North Atlantic Defense Coalition. On September 14, 2007 President Kim Pack announced the entrance into the NADC and said "this will usher in a whole new era of prosperity for our country." Through the aid and support of its members the USNA has become even stronger. President Kim Pack has made it clear that the USNA will remain a member of the NADC for long time and will fullfill its obligations to the alliance. When asked how far he would go he said "the NADC has helped our country in its time of need so we will help the NADC and all of its members in theirs."
On Novermber 9, 2007 the USNA received a massive influx of cash from a technology sale with the nation of Terlingua and a large donation from Osgiliath. With this extra cash invested the economy of the USNA jumped to the highest point in the new nation's history. Because of this unexpected prosperity President Pack made a national statement: "We thank the nation of Terlingua for their part in the technology exchange with our nation. We also especially thank the nation of Osgiliath for their generous donation. It is because of these two nations that our prosperity and growth is boosted to new measures.
On Thanksgiving day an assasination attempt on President Pack's life was made as he was heading to a state dinner.
During the following weeks the economy grew stronger and the USNA was prospering more. Unemployment and crime were at the lowest they've been in years.
On January 26, 2007 the USNA became involved in the BLEU-NADC War. President Pack issued a war warning several hours before the war started and the USNAM went to DEFCON 1. Reserve and National Guard units were mobilized, the USNAAF began combat air patrols, and the USNAN sortied all ships from naval bases. In quick succession three nations quickly declared war on the NADC without reason. Just before the declaration of war the USNAM Command was infiltrated by spies who lowered the readiness level of the military. Due to this several National Guard units were deactivated and all CAPs were stopped. With lightning speed the USNA was subjected to a rapid and heavy cruise missile/bombing campaign. As the USAAFs antiquated fighters attempted to engage the enemy air forces they were quickly wiped out mostly on the ground. Without air cover the USNAA was dealt extremely heavy damage from enemy aircraft. The USNAN was also dealt heavy losses with the loss of the USNS Nimitz, USNS Reagan, USNS Ticonderoga and two destroyers. In response cruise missiles were launched in return as well as a ill fated bombing attack that resulted in all aircraft being shot down. Enemy ground forces blitzed through surprised military units and devastated the rear areas. USNA Army units were pushed back and a state of anarchy resulted. After several days of repeated attacks the situation began to stabilize as the government restored order and the military started to hold back the attack and start some small counter attacks as well. On February 6, 2008 peace was declared and the USNA began to adhere to the peace terms forced on the entire NADC by BLEU.
After the terms expired May 8, 2008 the USNA military was rebuilt to pre-war levels.
On May 10, 2008 President Pack announced he was going to step down as supreme ruler of the USNA and run for elections. On May 25, 2008 the election results came in and President Pack won 97.56% of the Popular vote making him the first elected President of the United States of North America.
On June 16, 2008 the USNA completed a nation wide medical facility program with the completion of the National Hospital and a large clinic/hospital system in every region of the country.
On July 5, 2008 the USNA intervened and assisted the Government of Merat against various insurgent and terrorist groups.
On August 8, 2008 the economy of the USNA grew to a point where a national stock market was built to handle the economic boom.
On August 15, 2008 a terrorist organization known as the New World Order initiated a biological warfare attack on the USNA which resulted in the deaths of over 30,000 people. As a result President Kim Pack imposed marshal law across the nation and after several days breakouts died down and marshal law was partially lifted although interstate and international travel was still banned.
On August 19, 2008 the United States of North America military performed an operation to rescue President Kusanagi of the nation of Ghost in a Shell. Soon after major forces were committed to restore order in the country and restore the rightful government.
On August 21, 2008 President Pack ordered humanitarian assistance to be provided to the nation of Tibet. Soon after two cargo planes were shot down President Pack ordered in military forces to assist the multinational force in combating insurgents in the Northwestern region of Tibet.
On August 25, 2008 President Pack lifted the martial law he imposed across the country. Interstate and international borders were opened while the Army National Guard and Reserve still maintained a regular presence around major metropolitan areas.
On October 3, 2008 the USNA military called up reserves and went to high readiness levels in the event of an aggressive attack against the nation of Colstream by Tahoe. While a brigade of marines was already in Colstream as part of a multi-national coalition peace keeping force the 2nd Armored Division was redeployed there to add to the defense force.
Several Divisions were deployed to Greater Nordland, an ally, in Europe to assist in their defense against the Northern Empire on December 29, 2008. This led to a invasion of the USNA at home on January 5, 2009 by the Bermuda Triangle Pact accusing the USNA of plotting to bring the war to North America. The invasion didn't make much headway but on January 12, 2009 peace terms were signed bringing the war to an end.
The USNA has a very diverse mixed race population. According to an official government released census report the population is: 30% White, 30% Asian, 20% Latino, and 20% African American.
The population of the USNA is sort of Average. Most people are designated as middle class. The average age of all USNA citizens is 29.
The education of the USNA is considered some of the finest in the world. This is due to the large federal budget devoted to education in the USNA. The only bad part of the education system was it's lack of facilities and staff and it was therefore not totally available to the entire population. President Pack vowed to expand the education system saying "we will give our children the education they require and more". President Pack has recently devoted over $500 million to boost the education system within the next year.
In the following months the money was used to establish 3 National sponsored schools and 2 National Universities. This has expanded the eduactional capacity of the USNA to include most of the population.
The education expansion program was hailed a success as 97.19% of the USNA now has school coverage.
Law Enforcement Edit
As of May 22, 2008 all law enforcement agencies (federal, state, and local) were combined and assimilated into the United States of North America National Police
All USNA law enforcement agencies are well equipped and trained due to a high federal budget devoted to safety and security. The result of this is an extremely low crime rate. As a result of this low crime rate the citizens of the USNA feel safe and now most law enforcement agencies are devoted to anti-espionage or anti-terrorism duties.
Criminal Punishment is very severe on major crimes in the USNA. Any capital crime(murder, rape, kidnapping) was to be met with the death penalty. Lesser crimes like arson, robbery, and assault lead to prison or public discipline (flogging). Recently the crime rate of the USNA decreased rapidly but these disciplinary measures have stayed in place and there is little chance that they will be lifted.
GDP The economy of the USNA is not the largest in the world but it is strong. The USNA has a Gross Domestic Product of $706,585,761,000 for an average per capita income of $127,129.50. In the USNA most people pay a high amount of taxes (30%). However, this allows the USNA to maintain a large federal budget. As a result more money is available to fund social security, free health care, defense forces, education, and public safety. The federal budget is estimated to be roughly $211,975,728,300.
The USNA's primary exports are wheat and fish due to its amazingly productive farmland and fishing facilities. It also exports industrial machinery, electronic components, and steel on a smaller scale. Beer has also made it as a important export. The North West Territories has a large amount of natural gas reserves which are tapped and mostly used for power generation and heating within the USNA and is restricted from being exported abroad. The USNA also imports a variety of important items including gold, iron, lumber, oil, rubber, and uranium among other things.
The USNA's economy is a generally free market economy with some government involvement. While most of the economy is within the private sector about 32% of the economy is run by the government or with strict government regulations. These include defense contractors, utility companies, hospitals, most schools, and most construction companies.
