History Edit

Following Britain's defeat at the hands of the Axis powers in 1942 Canada was released as an independent nation. However it lacked the strength and unity to remain a single nation, quickly collapsing into several states. The then Governor Humphrey T. Walwyn, established an emergency government in St John's and quickly used the military units stationed on the island to obtain control over the rest of the Commonwealth.

In 1946 after several years of Stability the first democratic elections were held in the nation. The liberal party, headed by Joey Smallwood is victorious, Winning 68% of the votes and forming a majority government
