    • Tomarchio (speech at the farmhouse): You've lost loved ones, and here you are again; still strong, still proud. This is the best of America. But infighting has left us weak and vulnerable to our enemies. Remnants of the old Federal government has fallen back to Columbus, Ohio. After the attacks that government endlessly debated our response. So, in a vacuum of leadership I acted to let the world know that America was down, but not out! The Federal government of the eastern block states no longer has any governing authority beyond the Mississippi. You've seen the flag. This is the flag of a new country, flying from the Mississippi to the Pacific. The thirteen stripes of red and white still represent the thirteen colonies, but they run in a new direction, just as we must chart a new direction for ourselves. In a few short weeks Mayor Anderson will represent you as we ratify a constitution for this new nation, that will be known to the world by a new name; The Allied States of America! And with this new name, a clean slate. Our debts have been forgiven, and we are open again for business. That means jobs, stocked shelves, a return to life as we knew it. And in the fall we'll have elections where we can all take part in building a new government, as a safer, stronger America. God bless you, and God bless the Allied States of America!
