Shadowrun - The Titans of Old
The United Canadian and American States, also referred to as the UCAS, is a federal republic in eastern North America, stretching from the Atlantic in the east to the beginning of the Rocky Mountains. It is the successor state to both the United States of America and the Dominion of Canada. It shares land borders with Quebec, Algonkian-Manitou, Sioux, Pueblo and CAS. The state of Seattle on the West Coast of North America is enclaved in the Salish-Shidhe territory.
The country has 31 states, which have a level of local autonomy according to the system of federalism, and a special district, the Federal District of Columbia, encompassing the capital Washington DC. The state of Seattle is sometimes designated as the metroplex of Seattle, though it possesses all the attributes of a Union State. A UCAS citizen may be referred as an American or a Canadian, UCASer or Canadian-American.
Notable events from the last fifty years include:
- The Great Ghost Dance, where native Americans lost their collective shit thanks to centuries of injustice and peformed a ritual that obliterated huge amounts of the (then) American military.
- A dragon being elected president then immediately assassinated and maybe ascending to a higher plane of existence.
- Chicago being almost completely overrun by nigh-indestructible bug spirits.
- Several treaties and successions meaning the nation is comprised of about a third of the original US and portions of southeastern Canada.
