The Collapse of the United States of America was a major geopolitical event in the closing years of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st century. As the US economy stagnated in the 1980s and 1990s and NATO collapsed after the Sarajevo Accords, the United States was left more or less alone on the world stage. Even longtime allies like the United Republics and the French Empire slowly drifted closer to the Russian sphere. While internationally this was seen as a natural progression of the failure of US imperialist aggression at home many had a different view. A large faction of Congressmen and women, known to history as the Reformers, banded together to force President Thurmond to resign in 1992, bringing his Vice President Ronald Reagan to the Oval Office. Reagan would continue the limited government policies of his predecessor, instead focusing more on rebuilding America's ruined prestige on the world stage. This however would have drastic consequences as many generals in the US Army saw 'limited government' as another word for 'devolution' and after word got out that Reagan wanted to re-draw the United States Constitution, reforming it into a more federal state rather than the monolithic union it was, the Army felt it had to act. The resultant July Putsch failed after massive street protests coupled with Congress literally barricading the doors of the Capitol to keep the Generals from forcing their acceptance allowed for anti-Putsch forces time to rally and retake the DC. However, Reagan was killed by the Putschists and had yet to appoint a VP. When Congress reconvened in late July they appointed one of their own, renowned statesman John McCain as Interim President until elections were held. Little did they know they would never get to hold them.

The Putsch weakened the already comatose government authority and across the nation long dormant national identities were once again pushed to the forefront. The first to leave was New Holland (OTL New England) which declared its independence on August 5th, 1996. This was met with immediate condemnation by McCain who ordered the Army units stationed in the area to arrest the new 'Staathalder' Herbert London. However most of the units in the area were raised from the area and instead defected to the new Republic of New Holland. This was soon followed by the Great Plains Republics of Illinois, Missouri and Dakota, various states west of the Rockies led by Tocha (Japanese colonized California) and the Deep South. This began the American Wars as Army units still loyal to the Government in DC struggled to regain control of areas as more and more dormant secession movements made their move, including the Union of Seqoyah in Oklahoma and the Seminoles in Florida. The collapse of the United States was met with shock across the world as, while politically isolated, the United States was still a superpower with nuclear weapons. In response, as violence spiraled out of control across the former US the UN, spearheaded by Russia, landed peacekeepers in the United States who took possession of the nations nuclear silos. This led to the the US withdrawing from the UN and[...]
