** In the Creator/BoomStudios comic continuation of the first movie, it's shown that Florida has seceded and declared itself a free republic after being taken over by an anarchist militia led by a pair of adolescents who have somehow convinced their followers that they're {{Physical God}}s. They've gotten away with this for so long because they bought Missile Crisis era nukes off of Cuba and buried them along Florida's sole border, threatening to set them off if the US army moves in. [[spoiler: Snake eventually sets them off to spite both sides, turning Florida into an island.]] A map glimpsed in one panel suggests that other states are in similar states of unrest.

* Florida is only considered a "Southern" state by default. Many peninsular citizens have proposed secession, either as a state or as their own county. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conch_Republic The Conch Republic]] didn't take this as seriously as others. Curiously, there ''was'' a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Florida#Short-lived_Republic Republic of West Florida]] for a brief period in 1810, but it consisted of what is now southern Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.\\ \\ Even more confusing is that North Florida is considered part of the South, while the more recently developed South Florida is considered 'Yankee'. This is demographics at work--until the 20th century South Florida was economically useless, much of it being swampland. It only developed when the idea of idyllic resorts (and railroads) came into vogue, around the same time industrialization kicked into high gear. The result was rich Northerners looking for sunny (and frost-free) real estate, and South Florida farmers exporting citrus and winter fruit and vegetables north.\\ \\ However, the general antipathy between the Northern and Southern portions of the state predates the Civil War at least, and likely has to do with the massive differences in economics, as South Florida mainly focused on cattle, sugar and shipping, while North Florida and the Panhandle were heavily invested in plantation agriculture and King Cotton. The lack of easy overland travel really only exacerbated the issue. * The Conch Republic is a tongue-in-cheek secession by the residents of the Florida Keys, founded in TheEighties. A ton of illegal contraband like drugs had been trafficked through there, and for logistical reasons the Coast Guard decided to set up a checkpoint on the Florida mainland side of US Route 1 (the only road in or out of the Keys) and check everyone passing through, including Key residents trying to get to the mainland. The residents basically decided, "Fine, if you're going to treat us like a foreign country, we may as well become a foreign country!"

* Florida These days, UsefulNotes/{{Florida}}'s status as a Southern state exists mainly through the GrandfatherClause. Only the northern third of the state is only still considered part of the South, while central and southern Florida are considered culturally 'Yankee'. As a "Southern" state by default. Many peninsular result, many citizens in both the northern and southern parts of the state have proposed secession, either as secession from the other half. In the north, there have been many attempts dating to before the Civil War to get the Panhandle to split off and join neighboring Alabama. (Curiously, there ''was'' a state or as their own county.

To the south, meanwhile, serious suggestion was made by the mayor of South Miami in 2014 to [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/10/23/south_florida_as_51st_state_the_city_of_south_miami_votes_to_break_away.html split the state in two]] due to frustration with the state government's perceived lack of action on GlobalWarming (a major concern in low-lying UsefulNotes/{{Miami}}).\\\ North and South Florida have long had a great deal of separation and antipathy. In the 19th century, southern Florida had been mostly empty and seen as seriously economically useless, with the main economic activity being cattle, sugar, and shipping; between economic differences with northern Florida (which was invested heavily in plantation agriculture, particularly cotton) and the lack of easy travel, the southern half of Florida was essentially a separate entity from the north. This gap only grew (albeit in mutated form) when industrialization arrived, with large numbers of Northerners moving in for the sunny, frost-free weather, as others. Curiously, there ''was'' a railroads and air conditioning enabled resorts, retirement communities, and large-scale farming of citrus, winter fruit, and vegetables that could now be easily shipped north without fear of spoilage. ** On the more tongue-in-cheek end, there's the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Florida#Short-lived_Republic Republic of West Florida]] for a brief period in 1810, but it consisted of what is now southern Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.\\ \\ Even more confusing is that North Florida is considered part of the South, while the more recently developed South Florida is considered 'Yankee'.

However, in the Joint Resolution congress did allow a provision for the state to divide itself. During the Republican era of Texas and early in its statehood there was a significant political faction known as the 'divisionists' who argued that the former republic was too large to be governed effectively by a single body. The point was rendered moot with emergence of a Texan national culture.

* By some estimates, Texas is the most economically independent state in the Union. Notably its power grid is almost completely isolated from that of other states, and in the places it is not it only transfers power out. Its agriculture and industry are also both robust enough to be self sustaining. There would still be vast economic consequences if a succession did happen, but Texas could handle this better than most states.

* Hawaii was an independent monarchy before Americans living in Hawaii deposed Queen Liliuokalani in a coup d'état. The United States supported the coup and eventually annexed Hawaii based on trumped-up claims that the Queen's government was oppressing the American immigrants. To this day, the Native Hawaiian community itself is divided over what they want to do about it--some want total independence from the U.S. while others want Hawaii to remain a state but for the Native Hawaiians to have sovereign rights similar to the ones Native Americans have … and there are lots of "in-between" and "none of the above" views mixed in there as well. * The Alaska Independence Party, which advocates a new referendum that would include the option of Alaska becoming an independent nation, was founded in 1974. It became an officially recognized party in Alaska in 1984, and has maintained that status ever since. In 1990, the AIP even elected a governor, Wally Hickel, but Hickel did not actually support Alaska independence or a new statehood/independence referendum, and he rejoined the Republican Party in 1994. The AIP received some attention in 2008 over allegations that Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin had once been a member (she never was, but her husband Todd was for a time and she once addressed their convention as governor...but only by video, not in person).

* New England was the first region to consider secession from the United States, in the form of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartford_Convention Hartford Convention]] of 1815, which discussed primarily forging a separate peace with Great Britain. Important background: Americans were not unanimously in favor of the War of 1812, despite whatever impressions you may have gotten from your history textbook. While today, textbooks primarily cite the British practice of stopping American merchant ships they suspected were bound for France (who they were at war with at the time) and seizing goods or even kidnapping American sailors, many, especially New England, saw the war as a naked attempt to appropriate the land of Native Americans, many of whom were allied with Britain. New England even traded with Canada and Britain throughout the war in defiance of federal laws, which is the main reason they were spared the bulk of the fighting despite being the only area to border a British territory. * UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Mayor Fernando Wood proposed that his city secede from the union during the [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]] and form a [[TruceZone free-trade zone]] which would have commerce with everybody.

The other is what's left of the legitimate federal government, with its capital in Columbus, Ohio [[spoiler: (notably the city Hawkins was supposed to deliver his bomb to)]]. Off on its own, able to tip the balance, is the fully independent Republic of Texas. Season 1 makes a mention of ''six'' federal governments, and briefly shows a map with Sacramento, California; Cheyenne, Wyoming; San Antonio, Texas; Cleveland, Ohio; Albany, New York; and Montgomery, Alabama marked as capitals. There is also mention of a Senator from Oregon and a Senator from Alabama making claims to the Presidency. By season 2, though, this has been narrowed down to the above two governments and the Republic of Texas. ** When discussing the six factions in Season 1 mentioned above, it is stated that one of those claiming the Presidency, the man who eventually becomes the (off-screen) leader of the eastern States in Season two and thus the United States, is actually the legal and legitimate successor to the Presidency as he was a member of the late President's cabinet when the attacks occurred. However, as Russell explains, there are [[WeAREStrugglingTogether "five other guys who seem to think the attacks have changed the rules"]]. Not surprising given the disaster the country has experienced, which involves [[spoiler: ''23 cities'' destroyed by]] nuclear terrorism [[spoiler: not to mention that one of the upstarts was very likely involved in the attacks]]. Naturally there's going to be some chaos. Also each person claiming the Presidency is backed by parts of the military.
