Nova America is a nation founded on September 24th, 2019, by The_Epic_One. It is the largest nation on Datearth at the time of writing, and has claims to most of the continent of North America; expanding their operations across the globe with over fifty known towns.
The nation can be found on Nova, the sixth world for Datearth.
The Early Days (Sept.-Oct. 2019) Edit
Even before Nova America was founded, the nation possessed a Discord server. It was originally going to be called just America, however, it was changed on Nova's release.
The nation of Nova America was founded on 24 September 2019 by The_Epic_One, who served as the nation's official leader until October 15th. It quickly grew from its main city in Washington DC, to a stretch of towns across the east coast of mainland North America. Early cities included New York (TheCoolGeek), Tampa (SolloxCatpurr), Beaufort (Accessed) and Raleigh (TheKRNovelist).
Cities on the west coast began opening up as well, such as Cascadia (The_Prodromus), and San Francisco (Salt_Shaker). Overseas territories such as Willard Site in east Africa and Birdville in Australia joined NA as well. Over time, west coast cities such as Cascadia, gained prominence in national and political affairs; primarily following the election of President Prodromus.
War Begins (October 2019) Edit
Until October 3rd, 2019, Nova America had not waged war on any other nation. That changed when an unknown person, presumably from the Australian Empire, decided to nuke New York City. This attack killed some, and prompted NA to enter the Australian Nuclear Conflict.
On October 5th, FlyNovus decided to base their hub in Cape Town, which was a South African city in Nova America. They made plans to build airports in strategical parts of the nation. Accessed's new airline Air Carolina, was quickly accepted as the national airline of NA; resolved to serving every single town in Nova America. New airports popped up in cities around the nation, including Johannesburg, New York, Mafeteng, San Francisco, Tampa and Willard Site.
Nova America officially declared war Songhai Empire on October 10th, following the nuking of Los Angeles and San Francisco. The military gathered in Fort Alert to discuss plans of attack that same day. However, it was later revealed that Songhai had kicked town led by the aggressors, promptly ending the war on October 11th. It was soon discovered that Carthage was harboring the aggressors and war was promptly planned against them, as well.
On October 14th, all Nova American airports transferred ownership to the State of South Africa.
Presidential Era (Oct.-Nov. 2019) Edit
The first Presidential Elections were held on October 15th, 2019. The primaries were held first, with six officially declared political parties campaigning for the presidency. Although the election seemed like a tossup between Governor Prodromus of Cascadia and Command Sergeant Jwall1 of Willard Site, late entry Mayor Droppingbombs of San Antonio became a strong contender in the election before losing the primaries to The_Prodromus and Jwall1-- surpassed only by the American Central Party, based in Alaska.
The American Consulate secured a major landslide victory, winning 65.1% of the vote, defeating Jwall1 of the Builder's Party, who had secured 34.9% of the vote. This can primarily be attributed to The_Prodromus's active presidential campaign and continued discussion of every issue that Nova America had currently been facing. Although The_Prodromus's proposed radical changes to the Nova American government were a strong point of contention, they were ultimately what got him elected the President of Nova America.
Domestic Advancements Edit
Mayor Droppingbombs of San Antonio was approached by Commandante Kabenzo of Mexico with a proposition to connect the IH10, San Antonio's highway, which ran through McAllen and soon to connect to Austin's highway. There was an easy agreement, seeing as this had been the vision for the IH10 since the beginning.
The San Antonio Highway (or later known as the I-10) was completed on October 18th, making it the first highway, and the first international highway, linking the cities of McAllen and Cancun, the capital of Mexico. The next highway was the N1 highway in South Africa, linking Cape Town with Port Elizabeth, and making it the first overseas highway.
Omaha Base was able to begin rapid growth following many donations from American citizens on October 17th, 2019. The military installment quickly became a major participant of the Nova American military and rose to national prominence following their massive growth. Recruitment began on October 27th.
On October 17th, Los Angeles attempted to rebel against Nova America and join the nation of Carthage. However, the situation was handled in a way that was not disclosed to the American populace. This drew a small amount of criticism of the federal government, but ultimately did not have much of an effect on the nation.
An issue arose with the State of Alaska when Americans arrived in Fairbanks to demand that the Alaskans hand over their nuclear arsenal, or at the very least sell them to the Nova American government. This along with the lact of respect for Alaskan law, led to Alaska constructing a wall between Alaska and Canada, as well as the closing of Alaskan borders to the American populace; not accepting American entrance without proper authentication for the Governor or his top Commanders.
Issues with Superior Edit
The issue of Superior's settlement of the area designation as Michigan was brought to national prominence on October 23rd by President Prodromus. The President made the case for war against Superior, as not declaring war would set a precedent that other nations can colonize North America freely without permission from Nova America.
"We face an oncoming war with Rome over a sadistic attack against an American citizen that most of you already know about. We can not have this thing hovering over our shoulders as we come up to that difficult period in our early history. If we do anything that may basically "put the issue off, kick the can down the road..." we are giving our enemies extra slack most likely, an extra ally possibly and a negotiating chip, though at the very least - a nation spawn to go to to hit us easier than they might have otherwise."However, the situation was soon resolved after Supreme Justice TheCoolGeek was able to negotiate a treaty for Superior to kick two towns in contested territory on October 31st. In addition, he was also able to open the negotiations table with Avar on the subject of Nova Scotia.
President Prodromus announced that he would not be running for a second term in the November 2019 elections, endorsing JoeMachine, the nominee for the People's Party of America-- and second candidate to enter the election after gobears5 of the People's Party for Patriotism. Gobears5 was later banned on October 24th, 2019.
Revolutionary Wave Edit
On October 31st, 2019, the Nova American state of Alaska was granted independence and was established as the Republic of Alaska. Mayor Chase61 of the Germanic city of Austin had been considering the formation of a Republic of Texas for a while now, and McAllen officials Doctor_Tordoc and InvaderXYZ had been discussing the plans for independence as far back as October 12th-- with various plans to motivate San Antonio into spearheading an independence movement. However, Mayor Chase61 was reportedly, "too afraid of [Nova] America to actually do it." Once President Lucius__ of the Republic of Alaska approached Mayor Chase61 with his support for a Texan independence movement, invigorating Chase61 to reach out Mayor Droppingbombs of San Antionio.
A nerve was struck with the people of Nova America, following the resignation of Secretary of State Accesseed after being denied independence for the state of Carolina following the independence of the state of Alaska. Frustrated with the Nova American government, Beaufort was abandoned and Carolina left in a state of decay on November 4th, 2019; with Governor Accesseed declaring Beaufort to be disbanded in the near future and Carolina dissolved.
On November 4th, 2019, Mayor Droppingbombs declared San Antonio's intent to secede from the union, dissolving the Nova American state of Texas and forming a Republic of Texas with the power split between Austin and San Antonio. This was quickly backed by the residents of McAllen, who fully supported the move. However, Supreme Justice TheCoolGeek denied their request for independence, claiming that it would spark a "chain reaction," in Nova America and that the nation would quickly crumble during a period where he was beginning to "[repair] it." Governor Zericef of Indiana proclaimed,
"All of yall are traitors. You wouldn't be where you are without the nation. The nation wouldn't be where it is without the people. Now you want to leave the nation that has built you up, and for what? This is a betrayal of comradery. The nation accepted us all in with open arms, so why now do you want to leave it with clenched fists?"The growing number of independence movements led to a new political wave of shifting ideologies. The Builders Party was reformed by Governor Zericef into the Direct Democracy Party in direct response to these movements, in an attempt to appeal to the unhappy revolutionaries. Governor Jwan of Maryland and Sergeant Pinvheel of Omaha Base began their campaign for the Presidency in direct response to San Antonio's request for independence; running as the nominations for the Republican Party and the Paryn Party, respectively. While the Governor Jwan believed in restoring national unity as a way to deal with the growing independence movement (a direct response to Assistant InvaderXYZ's statement on the overall unhelpfulness of Nova America and the nation's intense individualism leading to zero national unity), Sergeant Pinvheel expressed a hardline stance on the independence movement, stating,
"Secession is not allowed in any circumstances. Illegal secession is the highest crime imaginable, and will be punished with severe military force until [either] the person seceding quits the secession, or [the] person seceding [disbands] their town and moves outside of illegal areas, the fate traitors choose matters naught to me."This belief emerges from a growing concern of Nova Americans that smaller nations (primarily Superior), who settle in North America are invading unclaimed lands that Nova Americans believe to be theirs by virtue of being America. This has been a stance firmly held by President Prodromus, who gave a statement to McAllen on November 6th:
"I was against Superior from the start because it was our policy to declare war against any nation that sprouts up in the middle of us, especially the lower 48 states where Superior made their home. That's been policy since before the nation was conceived on the Nova world to stop our enemies from using their public spawn to get to us, to remain challenging to independence movements without the legal process and to protect our claims in general. Though it was alright with us if they had stayed in Songhai or joined a different nation as there are many towns in other nations here, the problem is with a separate power based in the lower 48. Right now, I'm happy with our treaty and have no plans to war them in the future."On November 5th, as part of his campaign for the Nova American presidency Governor Jwan negotiated with Mayor Droppingbombs of San Antonio to advocate for their independence on the requirement that the Republic of Texas be open to the possibility of returning to Nova America in the future. An agreement was met, but Governor Jwan was unable to gain the attention of an official in the federal government for the approval of San Antonio's secession. However, Governor Jwan decided to go even further and meet with Accesseed, eventually convincing him to abandon the Carolina Secession Movement in favor of helping Jwan begin an american revolution to return the nation to its former glory.
However, on November 6th, Governor Jwan as able to garner the attention of President Prodromus who wished to speak on the subject further with the leadership of San Antonio. Mayor Doctor_Tordoc of McAllen presented himself as the representative for San Antonio and was able to meet an agreement with President Prodromus. At 4:19PM PST, San Antonio, and thus McAllen, was officially declared independent from Nova America. By then, Mayor Chase61 of the city of Austin has gained the support of the Republic of Alaska, Carthage, and Lemuria for the formation of the Republic of Texas. In addition, Governor Jwan provided a $100 donation to the future nation and advocated for San Antonio and McAllen's continued Nova American citizenship; primarily the ability to vote in elections.
On November 7th, TheCoolGeek announced his and President Prodromus's support for the new American Revolution, declaring a reform of the nation to help breathe life back into it. The Patriot Party and their nominee, Mayor Droppingbombs, were forced to drop out of the presidential election following the independence of San Antonio.
President of Nova America Edit
The President of Nova America serves as the nation's officially recognized leader, and is elected on the 15th of every month following the primaries. Any citizen can officially submit a political party application every month with their selected nominee to enter the presidential election. Primaries are held to select the two candidates that will be running against each other before the presidential election is held; which determines who wins the Presidency.
Parties are typically led by the nominee themselves, with no formal process of choosing a nominee other than the party leader. Because of this, parties are numerous in Nova America.
