The Free States of America (FSA) does not exist at the start of the game.

State regions that are Yankee homelands are considered Free American core states. State regions marked with an * in the table below are not Yankee homelands at the start of the game but can become so if Flag of America America completes certain journal entries.

American Civil War[edit | edit source]

The Free States of America is normally formed through a revolution in Flag of America America while the Slavery Debate is active and the Southern Planters are in government, which triggers an alternate version of the American Civil War. The revolutionary country in this case will become the FSA. This revolution will typically come about through a highly radicalized movement to Enact Slavery Banned. Note that although the war is technically triggered by revolution the FSA's initial war goal of annexing America will be automatically and immediately dropped from the diplomatic play effectively turning it into a secession.

Minor Unification[edit | edit source]

The Free States of America can also be formed through minor unification by any country of Grand Principality tier or lower that also has Yankee as a primary culture. The forming country must control at least 75% of Free American core states in order to form the FSA.

The following countries are capable of forming the Free States of America:

Name Tier Cultures
Flag of New England New England Grand Principality Yankee
Flag of Michigan Michigan Principality Yankee
Flag of California California Principality Yankee, Mexican
Flag of Deseret Deseret Principality Yankee, Dixie
Flag of Oregon Oregon Principality Yankee, Anglo-Canadian

Secession[edit | edit source]

The FSA can form through secession of the Yankee culture. The American Civil War does not have to have occurred for the FSA to form this way.

Politics[edit | edit source]

Interest Groups[edit | edit source]

The Free States of America uses all of the standard interest group names & core ideologies.
