The United States of the Pacific was founded on February 20, 2031 with the uniting of America, Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, Japan, and the various Pacific states (excluding Indonesia and Taiwan). South Korea applied for statehood on April 20, 2031 and was granted statehood on June 17, 2031.
The various peoples of the unified nations were very unhappy about the unification and radical movements rose up in nearly every former nation against the unification, most were eliminated by 2050. The general animosity levelled out in the next years and gave way to general apathy and eventually to moderate patriotism by 2050. During the Third World War all feelings of animosity remaining were burned away as the fighting continued heavily against the Hegemony and patriotism became nearly universal with various groups against the war being the only exception.
The USP united with the other Allied Powers into the United Nations on March 15, 2062.
