The United States of Altania (U.S.A or U.S) was founded on 12 April 2009 after the political reunion of the Republic of North Altania and the Kingdom of South Altania when David Black, the High Chancellor of North Altania at the time and now the Governor of the State of Castlton signed the Union Act with Daniel Hill, the King of South Altania at the time and now the President of the United States of Altanaia. It is noteworthy that the United States of Altania are in no way related to the Empire of Altannia Unita.
The new central, republican Government is under the leadership of Daniel Hill, with the title of President of the United States of Altania (U.S.A). The State governments answer directly to the Federal Government, lead by President Hill, who will be the President for one year, until the Federal Elections, that will take place throughout the month of December. The candidate with the highest vote will take their seat as President and their running mate will take seat as Vice-President from 1 January for the year, until the next Election. The Federal Government consists of two representatives of each State. The two representatives will be the 'State Governor' and the 'Secretary of the State'. They will be elected to their place during 'State Elections' held during the time of the Federal Elections and citizens can only vote for candidates running in their state. A President can be taken out of office, if a 'Vote of no confidence' is called by members of the Federal Government, who will then vote for a leader until the next Federal Election. Each State has its own capital where the State Governor and Secretary of the State will govern from. The government will consist of groups of independent runners, and their will be no political parties governing. At the formation every citizen has to become a citizen of one state before being considered a citizen. David Black is now the first Governor of Castlton, with Paul Hartgraves as the Secretary of the State, until the 2009 December State Elections.
After the vote of no confidence in Daniel Hill's leadership was called, David Black won the elections, but President Hill refused to stand down after the ultimatum to either stand down peacefully or be removed violently. President Hill stated he was the true leader of the people and fighting for Altanian Democracy. On 3 May 2009 David Black, formed the Altanian Red Army to fight off the nationalist, imperialist ruler, Daniel Hill. General Black and President Hill are preparing for battle and the new government that General Black formed, the Communist Party of Altania, the descendant of the Communist Party of North Altania which ruled the Republic of North Altania before the Unification.
