The Kingdom of South Carolina (German: Königreich Südkarolina), was an independent member state of the U.E.N.A. as well as New Europe. Its capital was the city of Myrtle Beach, and its modern successor state is considered the Duchy of Aiken.
Becoming part of New EuropeEdit
South Carolina became a member state in the final days of the U.E.N.A. Matthew was designated state despot to forge his state as he saw fit. Matthew was crowned King by the citizens of South Carolina and it was approved by the New European Emperor. South Carolina took much pride in its local militia force, which was considered to be as well trained as a regular force, it was so well organized that most customs used in the Imperial Army today are based off of the South Carolina Militia's own.
In its founding days, the Imperial Army only had a unified command. However the regional states still maintained their own armed forces. The Royal South Carolinian Army had three component units. These were the Royal South Carolinian Leibgrenadiergarde, the Royal South Carolinian Garde zu Fuss Regiment and the Royal Saxon Garde du Corps. These units had between 25-30 members at their appex.
South Carolina, although a constituent state to the greater empire it served, had ambitions of its own. King Matthew boasted his military and royal prowess that he was made the first General Field Marshal for the entire military. As the chief military advisor as well as ruler of the most populated state in the empire the King convinced the Imperial Government to be firm against the Scientopian ultimatum which ultimately lead to the Meissner-Antifan War. It was also throughout the war that the South Carolinian government took majority in making military decisions seeing as it had the most soldiers under its command. The King sought a quick military victory against the enemies and endorsed Johannus von Ikner's plan to create a cyber warfare devision to combat Scientopia.
Annexation of North CarolinaEdit
The Annexation of North Carolina was a political move at the behest of the North Carolinian people, where the so-called Principality of South Carolina was merged to the Kingdom of North Carolina, creating the Kingdom of Greater Carolina or, simply South Carolina.
The majority of the population of Greater Carolina is Caucasian, thought there are a number of descendants of Asian political refugees who fled the regimes of Pol Pot and Mao Zedong and a minority of African Americans. The majority of the populace, around 85%, delcare themselves as conservative and monarchist morals.
