Since the brief American border war of 1863 against Canada, Louisiana and Great Britain, the United States of America has not been involved in international conflicts, keeping a neutrality policy until the Anti-Hitlerian War.

Canadian Confederation formed in 1867, but Quebec became independent of Canada in 1909. Having already enjoyed a great deal of autonomy since 1870, Canada and Quebec and the were granted dominion status in 1931 and 1909. The provinces of Canada gathered themselves in a federation of equals, sworn to see off any threat posed by the USA.

The crisis was bad in the mid 1970's, but had been had cured by the late 1990s. .
