There are 16 countries in this game.
1. Antilles
2. Dominican Republic
3. Haiti
4. Jamaica
5. Cuba
6. The Bahamas
7. Panama
8. Costa Rica
9. Nicaragua
10. Honduras
11. El Salvador
12. Guatemala
13. Belize
14. Mexico
15. Canada
16. United States

In countries 1-13, each one is played by one player. Not that difficult, we all know how to play a country using diplomacy and foreign affairs.

For #14 (Mexico,) it gets a little bit more complicated. In Mexico, there are three players in the Mexican team. Feel free to figure out your politics, your leaders, your army, etc. as you will.

For #15, same thing. It's Canada. Figure out your own stuff, since there are only 3 of you.

Now for what we've all been waiting for. The United States. The politics of the US is confusing in itself, so I made it less confusing in this game. But it is nonetheless interesting.


Executive Branch
President
Head of the military (The military being the Republican and Democratic Blocs)
Head Diplomat
May sign bills passed by Congress (Every state) into law or can veto it, which means it does
not become a law unless 2/3 of Congress votes yes to it
Can unilaterally sign treaties with other nations, but to be official they have to have a 2/3
vote in Congress
Can be impeached by a 2/3 vote in Congress
Can enact executive order (Basically martial law)
Appoints the Chief Justice (Approved by majority in Congress)
Vice President
Can vote in Congress to break a tie vote
Counts the Presidential election votes
Becomes President upon the current President being booted, surrendering, resigning or being
impeached
Secretary of State
Advises the President on matters of foreign affairs, basically controls the President's
Foreign Affairs Department
Negotiates treaties, embassies, deals, etc. with other nations

Judicial Branch
Chief Justice
Resolves all conflicts, whether it be about distributing armies and cards, or about
impeachment trials, or about deciding who gets what neutral land

Legislative Branch
Declares war with a 2/3 vote
Creates bills which then are sent to become laws if the President signs them
Have to approve the President's choice for both Secretary of State and Chief Justice
Impeaches the President, Vice President, Secretary of State of Chief Justice with a 2/3 vote



Elections:
President
Congress (Everyone except the Republican and Democratic Blocs) elects a President. The
Presidential Election calendar looks like this:

Turn 1 - President in office
Turn 2 - President in office
Turn 3 - President in office
Turn 4 - President in office
Turn 5 - Candidates announce candidacy
Turn 6 - Candidates debate key topics in public chat
Turn 7 - Each state announces their pick for the Democratic Nominee, and their pick for the Republican Nominee, except the Blocs, who have not done anything in the election yet. The candidate for each party then is one of two nominees
Turn 8 - Every state casts their votes for President, with the amount of votes they are allowed being their income. The Republican Bloc and Democratic Bloc have to use their income to vote for their respective candidate. A winner is announced by the Vice President (since they count votes via PM)
Turn 9 - New President takes office
Turn 10 - President in office
Turn 11 - President in office
Turn 12 - President in office
Turn 13 - Candidates announce candidacy
Turn 14 - Candidates debate key topics in public chat
Turn 15 - Each state announces their pick for the Democratic Nominee, and their pick for the Republican Nominee, except the Blocs, who have not done anything in the election yet. The candidate for each party then is one of two nominees
Turn 16 - Every state casts their votes for President, with the amount of votes they are allowed being their income. The Republican Bloc and Democratic Bloc have to use their income to vote for their respective candidate. A winner is announced by the Vice President (since they count votes via PM)
Turn 17 - New President takes office

Repeat


Somewhere in there, the Presidential nominee has to announce their Vice Presidential candidate

As for the Republican and Democratic Blocs; basically, each state inside their respective blocs always has voted for only one party, so they are in a bloc. Each bloc has to use their income to vote for their own candidate. The states that are not in a bloc are swing states, so they can choose who they vote for. Please be accurate though; Swing states should not vote only based on the candidates party. Their actual views too
