Finished this a little while ago, figured "well, gotta upload it someday".
No man is good nor wise enough
To rule another, or disown
The rights of every woman and man
To live and let live and be left alone
The Jeffersonian Republic
(standard outsider term- in Virginia, usually Republic of Jefferson
; in Maryland, usually Democratic Republic
; in Pennsylvania and New York, usually Columbia
; in Connecticut, usually the Polypolitic
) is a republic situated on and around the Atlantic seaboard- from the Chesepioc to Malabarre to Lake Okswego. From the southwest to the northeast, its five states are Virginia, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. Each is theoretically co-independent and equal in sovereignty, and as such each technically lays claim to the national capital- Alexandria on the Bathommek, Baltimore-Jonestown on the Potapscoe, New York on the North and the Rarington, Filadelfia on the South and the Skulkill, and Providence on the Providence. In practice, however, Baltimore is the most important of the capitals- of the last twenty meetings of the Republican Congress, nineteen have been in Baltimore (the other was for the tricentennial of the founding of Filadelfia). Filadelfia’s and New York’s capital buildings are generally used as museums, while Alexandria’s and Providence’s are also used as regional capitals. Most states use a fully decentralized government system- no official divisions exist and representatives are chosen by their locality (either proportionally, like in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York; or by ones, like in Virginia). However, Connecticut divides itself up much like the Republic itself- a polypolitic of Malabarre, Providence, Saybrook, New Haven, and the Western Reserve. Economically, most of the states are agrarian- only Connecticut, generally the coldest state, sustains a more specifically industrial economy. This agrarian economy is largely maintained by what is not officially
slave labor- that was finally outlawed after decades of outside pressure and strong Virginian resistance.
