California (Or more formally the Republic of California) unitary presidential republic consisting of the former United States state of California. Historically, California has been a center of finance and culture in the United States, until the nation's downfall with the session of the Union of Everett, the Republic of Cascadia and the Kingdom of Texas. California seceded on March 24th, 2004, after the leave of the state of Texas from the federal union. Baja California joined the state on April 7th of the same year, citing the heavy corruption and irresponsibility of the Mexican government in the security of the northern states. On June 13th, 2007, the remainder of the state of Nevada joined California after Las Vegas was lost to Texas. California borders the Republic of Cascadia to the north and Mexico, the Kingdom of Texas and the United states to the west.
California has a long history of cultural, financial, industrial and political importance to the United States, meaning that after it left the remaining US states bounded into a pre-Constitutional loose confederation of autonomous states. On the contrary, California has a strong central unitary presidential unicameral republican government. The congress is composed of one House of Representatives, with a proportional amount of Congressmen as there is citizens. The government is loosely modeled after the former US federal government, however it is extremely more liberal without the addition of several conservative heartland states. It remains strong cultural and economic ties with its other former American countries, especially the Kingdom of Texas and the Union of Everett.
California has a pro-Western outlook on most of its foreign assets, however the government of the country has stated that it wishes to remain neutral in conflicts such as World War Three. Despite this, it is a member of the United Nations, the Planetary Alliance for Freedom and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
In the wake of the secession of the Union of Everett, the more states took away from the United States. California was the last true bastion of the former United States government by mid-2004, and already people were calling for the final dissolution of the former US government. Representatives of several counties, Los Angeles and San Francisco most notably, met in Oakland with talks of secession. While the talks were taking place in the City Hall, loyalists to the United States formed a remnant group of US National Guardsmen to attack the City Hall and keep California with the United States. The attack back lashed heavily, with even more Californians calling for the end of the union with the US federal government. Oakland-San Francisco SWAT teams were able to hold off the attackers long enough for the California legislature to declare a vote on secession. Almost the entirety of the California congress voted in favor, and the new government was formed shortly after. What remained under the control of California's government, the Californian State Troopers and various National Guard segments were able to fight the loyalists into Nevada, giving the new government time to organize their newly found nation. The governor was made the intermediate President of California, and California's state legislature would serve as the interm congress.
The congress began drafting a constitution based off that of the former United States Constitution, however more executive power was vested in the national government rather than county ones. While they were drafting their new government, representatives from the Mexican states of Baja California joined the new nation and declared their integrity to California. After two weeks, the congress created a new Constitution based off that of the former United States Constitution and the former California Constitution. Texas recognized the new government shortly after its first elections, giving the government legitimacy. Representatives from Texas also persuaded Mexico to stop is anger at Baja California, and accept that it would be able to survive without a small loss from the total population. Texas also gave the government of Mexico a set of funds that would make up for that year's losses. In return, the Kingdom asked that California allowed for the citizens of California to travel freely over the Colorado River and into Texas. California's government accepted, and this began a long history of cooperation between the two nations.
Three years after the formation of California, the state of Nevada lost Clark County and Las Vegas to the Kingdom of Texas after an incident on the Hoover Dam ended in stark negotiations with the state. Nevada, with a 68% of its population and nearly its entire economy gone, turned to California for help. California's legislature began a very poor negotiation with Nevada, that the state would be annexed if Nevada recognized the California would have sovereignty over them. Between a rock and a hard place, Nevada accepted and joined the republic on June 7th, 2007. California has continued its growth since then, and has not put itself into any wars. The government did, however, join the PAFF on the outbreak of World War III, solidifying its ties with the Western world.
