Imagine a time in the future when the United States of America is sundered and there are now two countries where the one we love so dear used to be. The original United States is much reduced and consists of the District of Columbia, the northeastern corridor, California, Florida, West Virginia, Washington and Hawaii. The remainder of the country and a large part of Canada are components of a kingdom ruled by a succession of kings whose lineage goes back to roots in North Carolina. The new country is called America. Its society is divided into aristocrats, commoners and a labor class who are assigned their status on the basis of intelligence tests. The country is militant and maintains a huge standing army plus a ready reserve force consisting of every able bodied man from age 18 to 62. The Roman Catholic faith is the faith of the kingdom and is in charge of education in all of the king s countries and his empire. Vassal countries exist in the Middle East, Central America, South America, the Pacific basin and Africa.
In 2084, in a desperate move to regain some of its lost territory, the United States launches a surprise attack out of Maryland and Washington, DC aimed at young King Henry s territory, the former state of Virginia.
