Sample Nation/Leader Sheet:
Nation: New German Empire
Leader: Sebastian von Munchen
Party/Affiliation: Germany First Party/Militarist
Summary: With the continuing decline of the American economy, and Russia's rise in strength, several militaristic parties attempted to gain control in an effort to bring Germany to a major power status in europe. Of the parties that tried to gain power, the Germany First Party was the most successful. Gaining control of the Reichstag, the people quickly brought Sebastian von Munchen into power. Charismatic and a very skilled orator, he began to purpose sweeping changes in the economy, gearing Germany's economy to one of military focus, in an effort to prepare for whatever move the Russians would make. He started a nuclear weapons program in late 2009
Name: Sebastian Von Muchen
Bio: A new and charismatic new leader of the world stage, his moves in Germany have alarmed some, while others have applauded him for his moves to strengthen his country in this time of instability. He is known to be cold and calculating when necessary, and has made himself known that those who stand in the way of Germanys future are soon thrown into the ash heap by the voters. Yet despite his goals of renewed German strength, he would prefer to move through diplomacy rather then through might. It is his goal to revive the strength of the EU in an effort to curp Russian military strength.
Already created nations/leaders:
Nation: Canadian Federation
Leader: Calvin J. Robertson
Party/Affiliation: Canadian Freedom Party/Democratic-Liberal
Summary: The Canadian Federation is the common name given to Canada after the "Quebec Conflict" in June 2009, where much of the province rebelled against the Prime Minister's mishandling of the recession and financial crisis. The Prime Minister was ousted during the July Crisis of 2009, replaced by "Calvin J. Robertson" of the newly formed "Canadian Freedom Party." The "Robertson Reforms," where PM Robertson reformed much of the Canadian economy and military (in the name of gaining further independence from the US sphere of influence), ensued throughout 2009, as the Quebec Conflict continued through several major rebellions and protests, until its end in December 4, 2009 with the "Montreal Accords."
Name: Calvin J. Robertson
Bio: Calvin J. Robertson (born December 26, 1973) was a young politician who was, initially, part of the Liberal Party of Canada until 2009. Much of Canada supported his movement, due to the former PM's mistakes causing much of the Canadian economy's decline. Though, in the aftermath of the Quebec Conflict and the oppression of Quebec that ensued, public opinion began to turn against him in late 2009. His entrance into 2010 laid a deeply controversial public opinion on his leading of Canada, and his popularity began to fall throughout December 2009.

Nation: Republic of Texas
Leader: Jeremy Hindsdon
Party Affiliation: Texas Freedom Party/Democratic Authoritarian
Summary: The recession hit much of the United States hard, but Texas's economy was one of the hardest hit. Much of Texas's economy was based on the oil it produced, which was used for both normal energy and for autmobiles. Being a conservative state, they naturally were dsicontent with the election of President Barak Obama. Many though did not believe there was anything to be done.
However, in mid April, 2009, Govenor Rick Perry proposed the ideal that secession could solve Texas's problems. While many believed this was just Perry Plotting for his reelection. But One man, and a following, did not.
Jeremy Hindson began to draw support among the public for the ideal, emphasizing how Washington no longer represented them. He began having meetings with stat senators and with the Govenor himself. By September of 2009, Plans had been setup for the secession of Texas.
On October 5th, 2009, Texas formally declared Independence from the United States of America, froming the Republic of Texas. Rick Perry was made President with Jeremy Hindson leading up as VP. However, he would be thrust into position of President two weeks later when Rick Perry was assasianated outside his home, who cried "For the UNION!!". Jeremy has since began to crack down on border secruity and internal security to make sure another move like this does not occur.
Name: Jeremy Hindson
Bio: Jeremy Hindson never expected to amount to much. He was a simple newspaper writer in a small town in western Texas, and only a minor member of one of the few Texas Secession groups. He had only joined because several of his family and friends were in the group.
But as 2009 dawned, with evenets seeming to spiral further down, he began to give the ideal more thought. Through his newly created online Newspaper, he started fanning the flames of secession. But not untill april did they turn into a spark.
After Rick Perry's statements involving secession, he ralleyed and campaigned across Texas, drawing large crowds and starting the chant across Texas "SECEDE!! SECEDE!!"
It took time to convince Govenor Rick Perry to agree and push it through the State Senate. When the nation of Texas was formed, he became Vice President. No more then two weeks later Jeremy became President when Rick Perry was assasianted.
