The U.A.P. is a group of sovereign states in North America, a lose federation designed originally to promote common trade practices and economic co-operation. Over time, the UAP has developed into a much tighter union. It now uses a common currency, the North American Dollar, has common policy on many issues including trade and most foreign relations, and is taking steps to further increase integration.

The UAP was formed in 1958 between New England, New Netherland, Virginia and Maryland to facilitate greater access to each others' markets. In 1969 Florida and New Spain were admitted, and this was followed by Jamaica, Cuba, the Bahamas, Canada, British Columbia and Quebec in 1974. Cromwell, Nunavut, Louisiana and Hispaniola were admitted in 1980. The final expansion of the UAP occurred in 1993, when long-term holdouts California, Tejas and Dakota were admitted to the UAP, mostly after abandoning protectionist trade policies.

The UAP has grown into a political, as well as an economic, union. Though each member retains full autonomy and sovereignty, integration between the states is growing. In 1977 the American Congress was established as a common Parliament. In 2000, all the members adopted a common currency, the American dollar. There is also an American Court of Justice. Each member state contributes one member to the American Council, which serves as a kind of executive, headed by the UAP Secretary General
