Confederation of Dixie
Confederate Air Force
What once was Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississipi, Missouri, and Arkanasas is now a large and thriving country. Bordered by the Appalachian Territory to the northeast, the People's Collective and the Industrial States of America to the north, the Protectorate of the Outer Banks to the east and the Republic of Texas to the west, the Confederation also nearly surrounds the small, independent state of French Louisiana, which was itself a member of the Confederacy until mid-1932.
The Confederacy is not a true nation in and of itself - built as it is out of those states who rejected the Federal government in favor of the Regionalist movement, the Confederate states mostly govern themselves. The only activity maintained at federal level is the militia, the Confederate Air Force, although even this is made up of state-supplied squadrons, which have a stronger alliance to their home states than the Confederacy as a whole.
The Confederation also has a high level of international aid. A close relationship with the British Empire has given the Confederate Air Force a source of equipment and expertise that has helped make the CAF one of the best-equipped militias in North America.
