In a landmark decision, the U.N. has handed over 95% of America's landmass over to the Native American tribes, and declared it a sovereign nation. All non-native citizens have been ordered to leave and move to Mississippi, which will now be recognized as a nation.
The decision has caused an uproar with American citizens, who claim that the action is unfair. Many claim that it is unfair due to the fact that Mississippi (now called "New America") is almost land-locked by Old America, Many refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of New America, saying that the U.N. had no right to steal the land and hand it over to the Native Americans.
The U.N. says that it's actions are justified due to the treatment of Native Americans when America was "settled" by Europeans.
A group of "Patriots" have declared war on New America, claiming that they will take back the land that is rightfully theirs. The U.N. and New America have labeled this group as terrorists and have vowed to destroy the group and all of its members.
