The American Alliance is a military and free trade alliance founded by the Republic of Virginia, the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Cape Girardeau, having since expanded to its current 10 member states. Its stated purpose is to return peace and prosperity to the American continent and to protect it from threats both foreign and domestic.


Since contact had been made in the early 90's, the Virginians and the Kentuckians forged closer and closer relations by necessity. In 2005 they made it official. On April 4th 2005 (the anniversary of the founding of NATO) Virginian President-General Thompson and Kentuckian President Jim Bunning signed the Campton Treaty, officially creating the East American Alliance, later shortened to simply the American Alliance, as the organization grew westward. For the first four years of the alliance they were headquartered in former Fort Campbell (out of respect to the 101st Airborne's origins), but they were moved to the recently restored Greenbrier Hotel facility in West Virginia.

Member States[]

Potential Member States[]

Non-Members of Interest[]

  • Superior - The Republic of Superior has declared neutrality on all military matters after the Saguenay War, retaining its own military if not solely for defending itself in its frontier lands.
  • North Pennsylvania - Due to its "brotherly" relationship with Toledo, North Pennsylvania often finds itself as the mediator to disputes between the other Pennsylvanian states and the Alliance due to activities outside of the Gettysburg area in the Pennsylvanian wild lands.
  • Delmarva - The Alliance states have had historically poor relationships with Delmarva due to its repeated denial of allowing access to the Chesapeake Bay.
  • Neonotia - Former President Carter repeatedly stressed his desire to keep his home from entanglement in military alliances such as the EAA, a wish honored going forward.

Official Operations[]


The organization's first operation was the late 2009-early 2010 expedition to Portland, Tennessee to help the local survivor community reclaim the state, and to restore the infrastructure damaged by the neglect and disorder resulting from Doomsday. It is becoming abundantly clear that the mission was a complete success, as the commanders confirmed that so far every objective has been met quickly and on schedule.

In February of 2010, a joint East American Alliance contingent was forced out of the former Tennessee survivor state of Jackson at gunpoint. This outrages the Virginians, who had the best of intentions in sending the contingent. They promptly declared war on Jackson.

Reunification of Tennessee[]

Over the decades, sentiment to reunify the state of Tennessee had always been present. The Alliance of Appalachian States, proposed in Piedmont in the early 1990s, finally went beyond the talk stage after leaders of East Tennessee, Georgia at Rome, and the Piedmont Republic agreed to discuss the union at a summit meeting in Rome, Georgia in August 2010. The leaders also agreed to strengthen relations with the American Alliance states. Some critics saw it as a response to a growing movement throughout the former southeastern United States to resurrect the Confederate States of America entity that began in the region after Doomsday and failed by the late 1990s.Through the first decade of the 21st century, it remained a sentimental idea, with many areas of the state depopulated and travel between the populated areas hampered by severely deteriorated roadways and railways and ever present threats from bandits. After the East Kentucky Alliance liberated the city state of Jackson in the west, East Tennessee leaders quietly began discussing reunification with leaders in Waynesboro, Portland, the new EAA-backed Jackson government and other surviving towns in west and central Tennessee.

In early August 2011, the Alliance agreed to help in restoring railways and roadways connecting the largest towns throughout Tennessee, and sending in Army and Marine groups to provide security. The reunification of Tennessee was formally announced on September 8, with the new state capital to be in the rebuilt town of Murfreesboro in central Tennessee. Murfreesboro is a short distance from the old state capital of Nashville - which, once the city is cleared and is authorized for resettlement, may be where the state government eventually returns to, once the region is declared to be safe.

The process to select representatives from each surviving town and city began in October, for a constitutional convention which was held at the University of Tennessee in April 2012. Elections for governor and the new General Assembly were scheduled for November 2012, and the state to formally become an entity on January 1, 2013.

Inter-organizational Relations[]

The Alliance sees its most significant overlap with the United Communities, although notably Virginia and Tennesse are League of Nations members while many of the others are not.
