The Federation of Canada, or simply Canada, is a large, resource-rich country located in the northern part of North America. Though its resources have allowed it to become economically powerful, the Federation's pledge to economic libertarianism and vow to capitalism means that only the very wealthy enjoy that wealth, leaving Canada with a significant impoverished community. Further to this point, although technically and legally Canada has a functioning legislature and an executive government, the corporations have so much clout that they are the ones who effectively run the country, with all of the country's legislators being practically appointed by a company operating within Canada.
The Federation is composed of four different countries- the Arctic Republics, Montana, Minnesota, Manitoba and Halifax- bound by a shared economic agreement, though each retains their functional independence. It was established by American President Haylie Modine shortly after she assumed office in February 2017, with the Republic of Halifax joining the Federation upon Modine's removal in May 2017.
Though it shares its name with the old Republic of Canada, the Federation does not claim to be its successor state or any other kind of continuity with the Republic.

Republic of Halifax
The Republic of Halifax is a country that encompasses the territories of New Brunswick and mainland Nova Scotia, with its capital in the eponymous city. The country was formed upon the dissolution of the Republic of Canada in 1993, joining the North American Union a year later. It became well-known for its fishing and tourism industries, industries that help keep the Republic economically viable.
In 2017, when Haylie Modine reorganized the NAU into the American Confederacy, the Republic opted to leave in protest, joining an alliance with Ontario, New York and Carolina with Rome. Modine called their move "illegal" but an attempted invasion of Halifax was thwarted by Roman and Haligonian forces in July 2017. Upon Modine's ouster in 2017, Halifax joined the Canadian Federation, albeit with the autonomy to protect its democratic institutions.
