Main Article: History of the United Nation of Conforti
The United Nation of Conforti was founded when the Great Civil War came to an end in 1798. The Democratic-Republic of Conforti defeated the Kingdom of Conforti , ending the Monarchy. The People's Treaty was signed, a document handing the entire nation to the people and their new government. Later that year, the Constitution of the United Nation of Conforti was drafted and signed, forming the newly united nation.
The nation's first president, Thomas West was elected in 1800 amongst the first senate. In 1804, the first election that allowed the citizens of Conforti to vote took place. They re-elected Thomas West and then again in 1808. When West announced that he would run again in 1812, several members of the senate proposed a limit on the number of terms a President can serve. The bill would not be voted on until after the next election however, opponent George Norton and his party used the subject as a central campaign focus. West still defeated Norton and his other opponents with 54% of the vote and the senate later voted against the term limit bill. It would be over one-hundred years, in 1953 where term limits would finally pass.
The UNC economy is one of the strongest in the world. It makes a lot of its own goods as well as importing goods from other countries. Its exports are constantly growing too. The currency of Conforti is the UNC Dollar. It is printed in 1,5,10,20, and 50 UNCD notes.
In 2009, when the world was feeling the effects of a global economic recession, President Kahari Powar to switch to an all digital economy, where money would be transferred digitally rather than physically, saving the country the additional costs of producing notes as well as "leading the ever-evolving world". Magician Technologies' founder and CEO, Pete Norman praised the idea and signed on as a willing partner in the research and development of a digital economy, but in 2010 the development was put on hold.
In September 2008, the ECI began to code UNCD notes to prevent counterfeit and to track transactions.
