Spain never gave Florida to the USA, who thought it was to worthless beyond a few coastal forts and towns. West Florida was bought by the USA and Mobile becomes a major American port. Eastern Florida (the US state of Florida) stayed Spanish.  

The Florida War of 1835 to 1842, was a conflict from 1835 to 1842 between Semisol Native Americans and Spanish colonial forces from 1835 to 1842. The Semisol did not want to be forced in to assimilation with Spanish culture. Assimilation with floridian culture would occur voluntarily in the 1890s.

After the 1850-54 riots against taxation without representation Florida was given 1854 independence by Spain, who thought it was better to concentrate on holding on to the Philopines, Cuba, Costa Rica and its African colonies. 

Renegade American troops that were stationed in southern Georgia at the time went over the border and looted San Agustín in 1860.

In 1861, after a army coup the new dictator began imprisoning, silencing, exiling, and executing many of his opponents. Due to political, security, defence and economic reasons he signed a pact with the Spanish Crown and declared a Spanish protectorate. It would end with his death in 1871. 200 Spanish troops would be in Miami from 1861 to 1871.

1906 saw Americans began to arrive in Florida Keys. As a result, Key West would become a small American ethnic enclave in the nation.

The Anti-Serbia War (1914-1918)

They stayed neutral in the war.

The Great Depression (1929-1940)

The economy declined sharply for 7 years until subsidies and protectionist measures were brought in until the economy was back in order.

The Anti-Hitlerian War (1939-1946)

Florida fought for the Allied side since early 1941.

Cold War

The long list of various squabbling factions run by dubious sugar business oligarchs, overthrown wimpish democrats, harsh military dictators, pro-America civil servants and odd-ball clerical movements ended in late 1952, when a decisive fascist and anti-American army coup occurred. The left wing, but democratically elected president and vice president fled, with most of thire government, to Canada in the following weeks. All relaining opposition was crushed and relations were tense with America until 1959.

It has historically opposed the communist regime in Cuba and supported the US blockade between 1962 and 1987. Many exiled Cubans live in Florida, especially in and around Miami. Florida also tried to mediate in the Chilean civil war of the 1970s.

Democracy was restored by the dictator's death of old age in 1979.

A referendum was held in 1987 on joining the USA, but it was heavily defeated.

Life today

Relations have improved with Cuba since the death of Dr Fidel Castro, but rellations with the USA have imploded since 2015. 

A referendum was held in both 1997 and 2008 on joining the USA, but it was heavily defeated on both occasions.

Most Floridians now fear an invasion by the USA, which has always regarded them as ethnically inferior.  Mexico, Cuba, Haiti (for what it's worth) and the Dominican Republic have all offered support to Florida if such an attack soccers.

Crime and lawlessness

The Mexican drug cartels are penetrating the southern Californian and Texan borders. Texas, California, the Junta and Lt. Joe Kenda are leading the fight back.

Biker gangs hold say in some in urban centres as well. Lt. Joe Kenda lead Colorado's defeat of Denver's biker and gangs between 2000 and 2005.

Corrupted New England Catholic priests, Televangelists from the nation, Bible Belt Christian fundamentalists and cultists who survived the post-Wako incident purge have gathered in some Midwestern locations. They have forcibly set up a few sealed communities of about ~500 to 900 or so. They are misogynistic, racist to Afro-Americans, anti-Semitic, anti-Rondova, anti-abortion, homophobic, anti-disabled, hate filled, xenophobic, anti-communist to a point that would distress even 1950s McCarthyists and hyper-repressive.

Louisiana, Florida, Cuba, Guatemala, all the US warlords, the Junta, Quebec, Canada, New England, Mexico, California and Cascadia hate them.


It has a well diversified economy covering agriculture, tourism, heavy industry, light industry, electronics, clothing, consumer goods and website hosting facilities and furniture.

The post-2016 drop in oil prices hit the country's small oil industry badly
