More specifically, it's set in the Great Plains United Republic, part of the former United States, in the runup to the Presidential election. A SpinOff, ''Land of Confusion'', was created not long after, which deals with the runup to the presidential election in the Industrial Republic of North America.

!!Tropes:

* CollateralAngst: Several media outlets after the Gare du Nord bombing. The coverage focused not on the numerous dead or injured or the intended target, Abigail Anderson, but Abigail's best friend, Music/TaylorSwift.
* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning:
** Subverted. Numerous songs are written very differently, including "Okie From Muskogee".
** Simultaneously played straight (in-universe) by "Our God is an Awesome God." The official version in the CSA invokes divine retribution on the CSA's enemies -- but the other version sung by dissidents invokes divine retribution on the CSA...
* DefectorFromDecadence: Several, from Bill Clinton to [[spoiler:Tim Tebow]].
* DividedStatesOfAmerica: And Canada as well.
* EnemyMine: The CSA and their major ally...the USSR.
* TheGreatPoliticsMessUp: Subverted. The USSR is still around. The USA broke up in the 1930's.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Numerous political and cultural figures, many from the Midwest.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Both Superstorm Sandy and George [=McGovern=]'s death were incorporated into the story.
* RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman: Numerous examples. At least two female politicians have different spouses. Condoleeza Rice is married to Grant Hill, while the former UsefulNotes/{{Hillary Rodham|Clinton}} is married to Pat Riley.
%%* SweetHomeAlabama: Subverted... and how.
