King George I Washington, King of the United States

(From: The Royal Pageant 12th Edition, Kennedy, Cohen, Bailey.)
The Formation of Kingdom (1785 – 1790)

The only event that was required for the creation of the United Kingdom of States was the sending of a letter on behalf of the officers of Colonel Lewis Nicola. This letter was sent to Washington in 1785, during the height of the Articles of Confederation weakness. Colonel Nicola had planned on sending the letter to Washington in 1783, but he decided to first garner support for “King George I Washington” prior to his attempt to make that title official.

The Colonel’s work was supported by Northern Merchants, who sought the stability of a monarchial patriarch for the nation and by Southern Planters, who felt that they could work their way into positions in the hypothetical Washington Court. He was joined in his quiet campaign by lawyer Alexander Hamilton who saw a Washingtonian Kingdom as an opportunity to both pass his economic system and as a way of centralizing the nation overall. The only major opposition to the idea came from the dedicated republicans and the fervently anti-federal.

When the letter was sent to Washington in December of 1785, it gave him pause, he was of the opinion that the Articles were a problem for the country, but he was unwilling to commit to an action he felt was tyrannical. The letter had predicated this reaction, and Hamilton and his supporters had already had a plan to convince Washington: They proposed that when he agreed to become King, Washington set about creating a new government with a conference. In the End he accepted the office of King and set about to create a conference to form a Constitution for his Kingdom.

Writing the Unwritten Rules

The Royal Constitution needed to be written for the United Kingdom of States, so in May of 1786 a group of statesmen were called to Philadelphia to discuss and debate the merits of the previous Articles of Confederation and the future of the nation. The statesmen were prestigious names from both the Revolution and from the Confederation General Government itself. The debates argued the nature of the Royal government, how would the population size of the states be taken into account in curtailing overarching imperialism by member-states.

The definite decision on the preventing of overarching imperialism was through the creation of a bicameral legislature, with the allocation of representatives based in population in the House of Representatives. The other house, called the Supreme Council of Representatives, would contain one representative from each state. The number of Representatives for each state would be determined by the Royal Census working with a Royal Election Commission, both royal agencies that would be established and headed by Supreme Council affirmed appointees.

King George I Washington attempted to curtail the idea of political factions forming in an official capacity, but it was not to be. His attempts at stopping the formation of political parties were out argued by James Madison, who argued that allowing factions to dominate political discourse, the factions would counter the influence of each other. This argument was successful in convincing Washington to allow the Royal Constitution to officially recognize political parties as a necessary part of the political process.

With parties recognized, Alexander Hamilton and his allies sought to further cement the power of parties and organization in the legislator, he called for the Head of Government to be a Prime Minister to be chosen by the majority party in the House of Representatives. This plan was met with support by many of the statesmen members of the Confederation general government. The plan was met with resistance by the members of the organization who wanted to completely remove any reference to the old Confederation. The Prime Ministerial plan passed the vote, though, in spite of the opposition, and was made part of the final Royal Constitution.

The Royal Constitution’s most controversial decision was the decision about slavery, the institution was met with fierce arguments from either side, foreshadowing the great pains it would cause the Kingdom in the future, The argument started with the decision of how to count the slaves as a portion of the population, the argument slowly moved toward the nature of slavery itself until the King stepped in and forced the argument back to the issue at hand. The Compromise, known as the 3/5ths compromise, compromised the issue of representation as 5 slaves being 3 persons for census purposes.

The Adams Government, and the Jefferson Government
The First Congress of the United Kingdom of States began officially in the year 1787, the organization was only able to achieve a quorum in 1789. The Congress elected by a wide margin the statesman John Adams as the first Premier. Adams was chosen as compromise candidate between the two power bases of the assembled parties from the Constitutional Convention, neither Hamilton, the leader what would become the Royalist Party, nor Jefferson, the leader of the future Federal-Democratic Party, were particularly fond of Adams, but Adams was a statesman with close ties to the King.

The Adams Premiership thus began the executing the layers of state. The Judiciary Act of 1879 established the Royal Courts; the Copyright and Patent Acts established the Kingdom’s patent laws; the Naturalized Citizenship Act; and the major act of the Jefferson-Hamilton Coalition, the “Compromise of 1790,” the Residence Act, the Excise Tax Act, the State Debts Act, and the Titles and Orders Act, the combined acts would place the national capital north of the Potomac River, have the national government assume the state debts, with interest, and to enact a system of rights for the land- and slaveholding plantation manors.

The weakness of the Adams government appeared from fissures within the Coalition that eventually broke apart. The Coalition broke apart as the 1st election approached and it became apparent that the Jefferson faction would find itself unable to match the Hamiltonian faction following the election. The Coalition thus broke in the final days of the Adams government, and the election was at first a three-way affair between the “Anti-Royalist Party,” an amalgamation of parties that acted against the Royal Constitution; the “Federal-Democratic Party,” Jefferson’s party; and “National Royalist Party,” the Hamilton Party.

The Jeffersonian Federal-Democratic Party was not going to win the election, this was obvious from the start, the supporters of the Federal-Democratic Party were able to agree with the platform of the Anti-Royalist Party with little trouble, the only thing holding together the Jeffersonian Faction was the stranglehold the Coalition held on the 1st Congress. Thus Jefferson needed to resort to drastic measures to maintain his control of the government, or at least prevent the control falling to the Hamiltonian government, Jefferson discussed allying with the Anti-Royalist parties.

The Federal-Democratic Party/Anti-Royalist Party Alliance was accepted by the majority of the local parties from the Anti-Royalists, the national figures were not accepting of the idea, but the local parties were able to out maneuver their counterparts in the national government and lead to a central Federal-Democratic Party that would represent the interests of the decentralist philosophy, thus killing the national Anti-Royalist Party for the UKS. This alliance would win the election, gaining 55 seats to the Royalist Party’s 50 seats of the Royalist Party.

The Federal-Democratic Party oversaw the founding of the city of Washington. The Federal-Democrats also saw to the First and Second Militia Acts that regulated the state militias, including major allowances to the states for state militias. The State Entrance Act, an act re-codifying the system established in the Northwest Ordinance of the Confederation. Tennessee and Kentucky enter the Union of States, thus bringing the council to 15 members.

The Royal Office issued a heavily debated declaration of neutrality, it was not the declaration that was the issue, but the idea that the King was to offer declarations to further the agenda of the Kingdom, and he would be able to issue statements that would increase his personal power. This debate, brought up by academics that were internationalist in nature, was simply a smokescreen to the issue of the nation’s foreign policy.

The debate raged over the idea of Royal supremacy versus the supremacy of the elected government. These, the first “Royal Debates” sent political shockwaves through both the Royalists and the Democratic ideals. Prime Minister Jefferson sought to assuage the debate by issuing the “Neutrality Act” as a measure that simply restated what the Royal Office had issued, earning him and his party largely negative emotions in the trying times leading up to the election of 1795.

Looks very interesting. I shall follow.

We can see here that the tyrannia, with enlightened leader, is the best governing form. In democracy the congressmen are mostly corrupted and makes only decisions what helps their own rich ass...

I wonder who will succeed Washington. Is the US a hereditary monarchy, or more along the lines of the EU3 Noble Republic?

Hamilton-Jefferson “Royal Debates” Debates of 1795

During the election of 1795, the National Royalist Party ran a smear campaign against the Federal-Democratic Party decrying the cowing to the crown and the lack of proper identity ideologically. This last charge was unfounded, as the Federal-Democratic Party was perfect in its support of Jeffersonian Democracy during the time period. The Royalists called for a series of debates across the East Coast between Jefferson and Hamilton, to set out and argue the place of the monarchy in the young Kingdom.

Hamilton argued for the continuation of the Kingdom under Washington, as he had from the beginning of the Kingdom, he argued that the stable eye of the monarch should temper the cascade of democracy that swept through the country. His arguments continued the use of a metaphor of a wave for democracy and factionalism, and saw the King as a lighthouse within a storm. His arguments were countered with the Neutrality Crisis, where the King stepped into his power and declared the Neutrality of the United Kingdom during the war between England and France.

Jefferson’s counter to his argument were that the monarchy should be abolished if the nation were to stand on its own, he argued for a Republic to replace the old kingdom, but his words were met with the last fully democratic government for the land, the anarchic Articles of Confederation. Jefferson referred to the system that Washington had came to power under, and never Washington himself, as unlawful, he continued to insult the system he was currently surviving under during the debates, earning him many enemies within his party who were fans of the new system due to its resemblance of the old system.

The last issue tackled at the debates was the issue of succession, who would replace the King after his death. Jefferson presented the idea of a system that would place a man on the throne via a congressional election. Hamilton and his supporters regarded this system as political. The Royalists foresaw a system under which the previous king chose the successor, and the successor would be an apolitical entity that worked for the betterment of the country ahead of ideology.

The debates raged for the months leading up to the March 27th election day. The Royalist smear campaign, the aplomb of Hamilton during the public debates, and the concentrated effort by the party to succeed on the coasts, led to a victory for the Royalists. New Prime Minister Alexander Hamilton entered Congress a week later with a solid majority for the Royalists, and a populace powerfully supporting the new regime.

What was odd about the debates was not the arguments used to support the work, nor the arguments themselves. The odd thing about the debate was the silence of the same intellectuals that had decried Washington’s Neutrality declaration and derided the government’s cowing to the king were silent during the debates. This has led to the idea that the intellectuals questioning the government were simply another facet of the many-pronged campaign of Alexander Hamilton and the National Royalist Party.

The Hamilton Government (1795 -1799)

Hamilton, with victory in the election of 1795 was able to secure the future of his own party. His work smearing the Federal-Democratic Party led to the flight of the party’s powerbase westward, to the frontier. This frontier movement gave the party an even more rural bent than Jefferson had pressured during his term. This shift left the Royalists to shift even further toward being the party of the east and the moderate west.

This, not so much as shift in ideology as radicalization of the opposition and moderation of the government, led to a Royalist Administration operating with mostly free reign during the height of Hamilton’s control of the party.

The first major legislation passed by the Royalist Government was the Election Reform and Redistricting Act, the act furthered the powers of the Royal Census and Election Bureau to expand the power of the royal agencies by changing the method of vote count to ignore state boundaries and allow the Royal Census and Election Bureau to determine seats and locations.

Hamilton’s Government saw the implementation of more of the Hamiltonian economic model, centralizing the state even further with measures meant to further encourage American industry. The Government codified the American Economic School that would become the dominant economic theory for the nation. The American School called for protective, selective, high tariffs, government investment in infrastructure, largely transportation improvements, and a national bank that would promote economic expansion.

Two years into the Royalist Government’s term, the Kingdom ran afoul its oldest ally, the XYZ affair started by the demanding various monetary concessions to the French Republic due to fears and paranoia regarding Jay’s Treaty, and to specific personal as bribes and coerced monies. The French Republic, as the Americans were not presenting the bribes, seizing American shipping over the Atlantic ocean. The Hamilton Government responded with an open threat of War with the French Republic. The French were unwilling to believe that the Kingdom would declare war, and continued the practice with the offer of bribes. Over objections from the pacifistic, isolationist, and pro=French wings of the Congress, the Hamilton Government issued a Declaration of War against the French Republic.

The American Kingdom, having recently established a Marine Corps, began dreaming of invading the French Colonies in South American and the Caribbean. These dreams would never come to pass, however, as the battles were fought soley between the Navies of the French Republic and the American Kingdom. Hamilton also drew support from England, and managed to get the Royal Navy to join in planning and orchestrating attacks against the French Republic, The XYZ War lasted until the rise of First Consul Napoleon in 1800, who took a more conciliatory attitude to the American Government, and succeeded in convincing the Government to end hostilities.

The Hamilton Government had been reelected by an even wider margin during the 1799 election, and thus implemented even further reforms until the death of the King in 1799.

Interesting, will the UKS be able to attract immigrants as a monarchy or constitutional monarchy?

Otherwise you will have to force massive migrations from the Americas and Asia to keep your factories manned!

Interesting, will the UKS be able to attract immigrants as a monarchy or constitutional monarchy?

Otherwise you will have to force massive migrations from the Americas and Asia to keep your factories manned!

I think you can still get immigration as a Con. Monarchy, only absolute monarchy stops immigration. All the bonuses the USA gets (plurality, Americas and country tag) should more than make up for it.

Great AAR by the way! Keep it up. I can't wait for the main game action to start.
