Overview

The nation is almost entirely flat and largely forested country. The climate is temperate in the the Clinton Peninsula and borial in the north center, but is tundra in both the south and the flat coastal plains of the South Pole hinterland. Virtually all major settlements are on the peninsula.

The Eastern Clinton Peninsula has been mostly cleared for high-yield cattle farming. It also contains the small, coastal, Safe Water and Port Boston gas fields. There are both the Nixon Hills and the large Nixon Iron Mine are in the far south. The highest point is Nixon Hill at 500 ft.

The polar hinterland contains only the small fishing villages of Anchorage and Juno, along with a hundred or so migrant seal hunters in the western Alaska region. Two 15-man weather stations one 18-man scientific station and the 50 man Cold End Air Base\Naval Base in the eastern Wisconsin region. The highest points (sited in Wisconsin) are Peak Wisconsin at 14,500 ft, Peak Kennedy at 4500 ft, Mount Lincoln at 3800 ft and (in Alaska) Mount Daxon at 3500 ft.

Industry has many forms and focuses around Safehaven, Port Boston, Nixon and Vermont City. The steel industry is based in Vermont City, Portland and Nixon provides almost all the iron ore. Ships are built in Safehaven and Port Boston, while communications equipment and power tools are built in the small town of Hertford, ten miles north of Nixon. Most bulldozers, transport equipment and tractors are made in Concorde, many of which are exported.

A nature reserve covers the whole length of the western River Potomac and its banks, except for were it runs in to the sea at the fishing port of Carterton.
