History of the Kingdom
What is now known as the Atlantic Kingdom was once an assortment of divided city-states and small duchies. These little nations were at first only connected by commerce and their shared language, Atlantic English. Over time however alliances between the states began to form and authorities larger than the city mayor began to take shape. Among the first and most powerful of these was the Chesapeake League led by the city of Baltimore. Its sphere of influence included much of what are now the Carolina, Potomac, and Chesapeake provinces in the Atlantian Kingdom. At the same time that the Chesapeake League was consolidating its power over the south, the oligarchy running Empire City was overthrown by the charismatic young soldier William Lancaster. Lancaster crowned himself king in 4717 and invaded the surrounding nations. Thanks to his kingdom's population he was quickly able to subdue his much smaller opponents and his kingdom stretched from the Delaware river to the border of Mobius in the north. William died in 4739 and was succeeded by his ambitious daughter, Helena. She wished to invade the weakened Chesapeake League and unite the entire region under her families rule. War between the Chesapeake League and the Atlantic Kingdom began when the latter invaded the neutral buffer state of Pennsylvania. After several years of bloody fighting the Kingdom gained the upper hand and the League surrendered on generous terms in 4758. Thus the Atlantic Kingdom as it is today was born.
Government of the Kingdom
The Atlantic Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy ruled over by a King or Queen. They are responsible for all foreign affairs and have considerable domestic influence as well, including the oversight of crown lands and crown corporations. In addition, the sovereign may submit legislation to parliament to be voted on and call for new elections at any time. They are also the nominal head of the Church of the Atlantic, although they have no real power. Parliament consists of the House of Nobility and the House of Citizens. Only land owners, military servicemen, and those who pay a large sum of money can vote in the House of Citizens, this has caused considerable unrest in the western parts of the country, especially the province of Appalachia, where people feel they have no representation and protection. All citizen's, voting or no, rights are guaranteed in the Constitution.
Religion of the Kingdom
The official religion of the kingdom is the Church of the Atlantic, which claims to be the true successor to the religion established by Jesus Christ and his followers many millennia ago. (It is essentially a form of high-church Protestantism, analogue to Anglicanism or the Church of Scotland.) However other religions can be found in the Kingdom, with varying degrees of tolerance depending on the region.

The Kingdom of Deseret as a fellow Monarcy on the North American contenent would like to open diplomatic relations with the Atlantic Kingdom. As a kingdom whose only recently broken its isolationism moved into the modern era, it is comforted to see another with a similar path.

Oh dang. You look like a mini Ceona, but nice.

Welcome aboard! I represent the Latin Empire of Ceona, the rulers of the southern half of South America (and also most of Iberia). Our nation is famed for our advanced sentient computers. We're also pretty good at robotics.

I'm sure there will be lots of room for cooperation in the future!

You do not exist, says the Federation, although the flag of your illegitimate nation is passably attractive and shares the thirteen-star motif of our own.

The Federation is rather socialist and therefore disapproves of your monarchy but would greatly appreciate it if you didn't eat our eggs.

We would be very pleased to open diplomatic relations with both the Kingdom of Deseret and Ceona. Perhaps one of your leaders would be willing to give us an update as to what has happened to the world in recent decades?

The Atlantic Kingdom is saddened that the Federation refuses to recognize the existence of our great kingdom, but seeing as they are a whole planet we will not antagonize them for the time being.

The Taylor dynasty allegedly has its roots in the founder of Mormonism Joseph Smith through the matrilineal line. The nation formed to protect the Mormon people from outsiders and to keep the ideology of the nation pure. Deseret sees itself as the protector of the Mormon faith and people, doing everything in its power to protect itself.he kingdom of Deseret is currently an constitutional feudal monarchy. AIn the year 4863 a space shuttle from the planet of Venus crashed on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. The ship was that of the Shah empire escaping the current communist regime. Out of the ship stepped 99 Venusians, the emperor’s grand-niece Catherine Shah and a previously unknown man who claims to be emperor. The kingdom’s first contract with extraterrestrial and civilized life. The brother of king Bryan, prince Marcus saw the ship and its genetically modified crew as demons and ordered the militia to slaughter them all. The prince and heir to the throne prince Jack stopped the order however after seeing the Venusian Pirate Queen for the first time, and falling in love. After a few weeks the prince asked his father the king, for permission to marry her. The king loving his son accepted and began a new area in the kingdom. Opening its gates for the first time to outsiders and outside influence. The kingdom went through a civil war when the kings brother refused the opening of the kingdom to the world, but was defeated, and murdered by the Venesians in the "Grand Junction Massacure." After this event the kingdom had a constitutional convention, creating a chamber of nobles and a chamber of the people, and allowing for the freedom of religion after the execution of Haythem White. After that the kingdom militarily expanded outside of Utah to control the whole of the west coast which it still holds today.

The king would like to send Prince William Taylor, third born son of the king on a diplomatic mission to the Atlantic Kingdom, with the possibility of trade, exchange of knowledge, ideals, and, if things go well, a marriage pact for non aggression.

Welcome to the international community from the Phoenix Corporate Group.

We are a creative, artistic and pacifistic people, with a population of some 2 billion spread across Earth, Mars and our extra solar colonies (we’re the gold areas on the maps of Mars and South American).

An industrial powerhouse, Mining has long been the backbone of our economy, with Construction, Agriculture, Media Industries, and Leisure & Tourism being other major financial contributors.

While we might be corporate conglomerate, and we operate internationally as a capitalist democracy, our domestic policies are closer to socialist in their execution, with free housing, education and healthcare all provided for the people, by the Corporation (“the good of the people”, being a founding principle of the PCG).

We also have a long and proud history of humanitarian work through the Darius Initiative (essentially an in-game MSF/Doctors Without Borders) and as a founding member of the Federation of United Nations (which you are welcome to join with no obligations - as an Earth nation, you are also eligible for representation at the League of Cairo)

We’re dispatching to you a Master Teller, to serve as our Ambassador to your people. Tellers are the “wisemen” of our culture, a product of the Craft, a school of philosophical thought (which some describe as “a religion with no need for gods”), that we teach alongside more conventional education models.

He’ll arrive with a set of notable texts and examples of our cultural crafts and artworks, for your national archives (he’ll be from South America, as many unconditioned Martians, tend to struggle with prolonged exposure to Earth’s gravity).

As an Earth-based nation, you can expect to be mostly dealing with our Terran-CEO Gabriel Alonso, If there’s anything we can do to help, or if you just have questions, please feel free to ask.

We’ve already established strong ties with your new continental neighbour, the Kingdom of Deseret, and we hope to enjoy a similarly rich and rewarding relationship with you also.


In Peace and Plenty, For All.

Meurig Halloran,

14th President of the PCG, & Member of the governing body.


P.S. - We’d also like to bring your attention to the Samaritan Fund, which is available from the FUN to all emerging nations.

As a new nation, you are eligible for 1 trn cc from the fund (1cc = about $1), this is an economic stimulus to help you address your nations/peoples most pressing concerns.

The money is a grant, not a loan, so it won’t have to be repaid. The only restrictions in place on this money, is that it cannot be used to purchase or develop military hardware and/or techs, of any kind.

(Consider this money already in your account and ready for you to spend)


And welcome to the game! :)
