The California Republic, more commonly known as simply California is a sovereign state in North America. It is bordered by Cascadia and Deseret to the north, and Sonora across the Gulf of California. Its capital city is Sacramento whilst its largest city is Los Angeles.

California is similar to many present-day North American states in its emergence from the early 21st century's global economic crisis. Alienation from the policies and decisions made by the United States federal government on the east coast of the continent along with a piercing desire for economic independence drove many states, including California to push for independence. During the process of North American Balkanization, California lost most of its territory south of Redding, but also gained Baja California from an equally shattered Mexico.


Due to conflict with its neighbour Deseret, California lost a large amount of territory that once belonged to it, particularly the majority of the Mojave Desert and everything east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. As a result, present-day California is isolated to the more populated areas along its coastline.

Post-2008

The 2008 economic crash sparked separatist sentiment across the content, based in disagreement with the fiscal policies of their central governments and a larger quantity of regionalism across North America. California was no stranger to this phenomenon.
