The New United States of America (NUSA) are the creation of desperation hoping to create a new home in the wake of the destruction of the original United States of America, which fell apart due to constant war and conflict.
The original United States of America - divided by bitter internal conflicts and stretched apart by dissident forces - finally collapsed into a potpourri of warring states and sprawling, abandoned territories. But when the dust finally settled and disaster became the new normal, the old dreams of unity and national pride were once more united under a new-and-improved star-spangled banner, behind which stands the New United States of America (NUSA). Rosalind Myers, the Union's incumbent president, is hell-bent on bringing the rest of the country in line, no matter the cost. Myers's government is supported militarily by Militech, so much so, in fact, that it's hard to tell where the state ends and the corporation begins. In that respect, not much has changed.
