Main Article: Second American Revolution
On November 23, 1932, Washington D.C. was captured by members of the American Workers' Party. Following this event, the California and Hawaii, along with Washington, D.C., which was renamed Georgetown, declared themselves to be "socialist republics" united together in a military alliance. Capitalists, businessmen, United States loyalists, and citizens who opposed the establishment of a communist state organized a provisional government of the United States in opposition of communism; a new provisional government was organized and recognized as the legitimate American government by almost every country in the world, with the exception of Russia. In response, the United States threatened to launch troops into California and Hawaii. Following several workers' strikes, the United States declared martial law and relocated the capital from Washington, D.C. to New York City in an attempt to stabilize the country. This further destabilized the country, resulting in civil unrest and an increase in communist movements. To prevent its collapse, the military seized absolute power, until the government could be stabilized. Finally, on November 27, 1932, the United States declared war on the new republics.
A new civil war
The United States sent military forces into California and Hawaii, as well as invading the de facto capital of the communist rebellion, Georgetown. The attempt failed, as it forced communists to band together, forming the Workers' Liberation Army to fight the invasion. The Workers' Liberation Army repelled the invasion pushed further into United States territory. While the United States started with a larger military and population, communists possessed a larger industry and a large amount of supporters in the United States. The Workers' Liberation Army sent its navy to invade New York City, in an attempt to capture the capital. The invasion at first failed, so the fleet began a siege of the city. This forced the United States Army to retreat to New York. As the United States Army attempted to stop the invasion, its government began to break down. With the army concentrated on the capital, the Workers' Freedom Army easily broke through the country's borders and annexed United States territory. Communists, who were increasing in numbers, revolted against the army, seized control of their states and then declared themselves to be "socialist republics", accelerating the United States' collapse. United States soldiers, seeing the war as a lost cause, began defecting to the new republics, weakening the United States' defense. By 1936, New York was the last remnant of the United States, slowly being conquered by the Workers' Liberation Army. Finally, on November 29, 1936, George Marshall, temporary president of the United States, surrendered to the communist forces, ending the civil war.
With its surrender, the United States was dissolved, and its territory and citizens were absorbed by the socialist republics, now united under the Treaty and Constitution on the Creation of the United Socialist Republics of America as the "United Socialist Republics of America". With the United States gone, Alaska was annexed as a new republic, while remaining United States territory either became independent or were incorporated into surrounding countries. The USRA quickly lead socialist revolutions in these new nations, though due to its own instability, these revolutions failed. This failure convinced the USRA to stabilize before leading revolutions to create socialist states. While the USRA would emerge as a superpower after World War 2, it would not be until 1946 that the damage caused by the civil war would be fully repaired. The victory of the USRA was seen by the American people as a reason why communism was an ideology that could succeed, leading them to support a communist revolution in Japan, creating the Democratic People's Republic of Japan.
