 King Alfred’s trip through Canada went through with the King becoming more and more popular as his hunting trips for bears were published with various photos being taken and the King gaining a reputation as a kind hearted man when he spared the life of a young cub after shooting the mother, even going so far as to adopt the bear as a pet, having it sent to his Balmoral Estates as a pet with his other animals. This point wasn’t all that well thought through as the bear (Given the name Canada in honour of its home country) promptly went on to kill and eat several of the animals on the King’s estates before its diet was finally worked out. King Alfred’s trip through Canada went through with the King becoming more and more popular as his hunting trips for bears were published with various photos being taken and the King gaining a reputation as a kind hearted man when he spared the life of a young cub after shooting the mother, even going so far as to adopt the bear as a pet, having it sent to his Balmoral Estates as a pet with his other animals.

 With the New England Republic now in a nadir of relationships with Britain and Canada, it then turned to the other North American nations, in particular, California to balance against the US. Realising the political realities of the nation however, the Juntist Movement was approached and offered instant recognition in the event of them gaining power, by fair means or foul. This was the catalyst needed for the Movement to begin plans to finally seize power. As King Alfred crossed the border to the US, the final stages of the Juntist coup were coming to fruition… With the New England Republic now in a nadir of relationships with Britain and Canada, it then turned to the other North American nations, in particular, California to balance against the US.

 The leadership of the Liberal Party and the person who’d be Prime Minister was finally decided as Sir George Cornewall Lewis succeeded Lord Russell. A well liked and fairly respected man, Lewis entered his Premiership with the determination to see through the election, get the Ireland issue sorted out and find a way to bring in the wayward King as word of his disaster in New England reached Britain via telegraph. Although he was out of the power of any British officials while in the US, Lewis sent orders to Canada to reign in the King as soon as he arrived back on Canadian soil. After doing so, Lewis got down to concentrating on the election which was in the next month. The leadership of the Liberal Party and the person who’d be Prime Minister was finally decided as Sir George Cornewall Lewis succeeded Lord Russell.

 Foreign affairs were only one of the few problems that faced the Californian Juntist Republic as a very poor economy and a hugely divided leadership only promised to further the state’s problems. As Norton delved into giving the economy a boost, Manta looked into expanding the Military for the purpose of creating not only a Juntist nation, but the most powerful nation in North America… Foreign affairs were only one of the few problems that faced the Californian Juntist Republic as a very poor economy and a hugely divided leadership only promised to further the state’s problems.

 The 1st March saw the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland gain or confirm two Liberal Governments as the people gave a vote of confidence for both the new Government in Ireland and the direction Britain in general was going. Sir Lewis headed the Government which now saw an upswing in the support of Federalism within the Empire as the elections brought in many young, rising Minsters who saw Ireland as only the beginning. Lewis himself was mildly supportive of the measures but was unsure of how to go about them. He was helped in this by the growing reputation of a young yet popular Irish MP, Jeremiah Sutton. The 1st March saw the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland gain or confirm two Liberal Governments as the people gave a vote of confidence for both the new Government in Ireland and the direction Britain in general was going.

 The Federalism issue was not divisive but certainly a rising one with many supporters for it in Ireland, Canada and Australia, only encouraged by King Alfred himself for many people. And when Alfred got himself involved in an issue, he saw it through to the end… The Federalism issue was not divisive but certainly a rising one with many supporters for it in Ireland, Canada and Australia, only encouraged by King Alfred himself for many people.

 After his controversial tour of four North American nations, King Alfred, with the aid of several American, Sioux and sympathetic Canadian agents, slipped into Oregon from Western America, up through Western Wanci Oyate and to the Oregon coast where a ship was waiting to take him to the Philippines. It was done in complete secrecy and it wasn’t until a week after he sailed that the Canadian Government discovered what had happened, turning Alfred’s popularity up a notch. He was seen in the US as the darling rogue, biting his thumb at the stuffy British and becoming his own man, a true American in fact. After his controversial tour of four North American nations, King Alfred, with the aid of several American, Sioux and sympathetic Canadian agents, slipped into Oregon from Western America, up through Western Wanci Oyate and to the Oregon coast where a ship was waiting to take him to the Philippines.

 The British Government also enjoyed Alfred’s misadventures,​ seeing his journey across the Empire as a true thing the King should do and the Liberal Government was spoiling all the fun. Sir Lewis was greatly annoyed by Alfred’s exploits and sent orders to Britain’s Asian colonies to bring the King in as soon as they caught a whiff of him. Something that would be quite difficult as the King now went under a disguise… The British Government also enjoyed Alfred’s misadventures,​ seeing his journey across the Empire as a true thing the King should do and the Liberal Government was spoiling all the fun.

 To the expectations of everyone, Abraham Lincoln was voted in as President of the United States of America with the promise of restoring New Jersey to the US, greater focus on rising industry and the normalisation of relationships with the US’s neighbours. King Alfred’s visit to the US had in fact greatly aided the warming of relations between Britain and America, something Lincoln was determined to exploit to its fullest. ​ To the expectations of everyone, Abraham Lincoln was voted in as President of the United States of America with the promise of restoring New Jersey to the US, greater focus on rising industry and the normalisation of relationships with the US’s neighbours.
