Soviet Invasion of Alaska
In 1965 Soviet forces invaded Alaska claiming it was 'ancestrally theirs,' referring to Russian America. The invasion caused the Alaskan Wars which ended in 1968, and since the two countries have been in a stale mate, causing the everlasting threat of nuclear annihilation. The invasion severely distabilised the US, and caused opposition to government, which allowed for several separatisit movements, of which the Federated States was one of, albeit the only one which actually separated.

The forces are divided into 6 military zones, each state operates a separate military zone, which all together serve to defend the country. The Q45 Recharger plasma rifle is the standard issue rifle for the land forces, which has practically unlimited munitions, although with limited power supplies, and as a result takes 10 seconds to fully recharge 10 rounds using Microfusion Breeder technology.
The Air Force are the air wing of the Federated States military, and protect the airspace claimed by the Federated States, and operate anti-spy activities for Soviet Aircraft. The Air Forces are composed of 65,000 active soldiers, and 2,400 military air craft, Edwards Air Force base in Nevada is the primary base of operations.
