Vermont, likes it's two neighbors, is a constitutional state; a Unitary Consitutional Republic. It's headed by a president, a chamber of ministry, and assembly.
Freedom Party - An economically right, and socially liberal political party; similiar to the Whig Party.
Greater American Party (GA) - seeks to join the UAR, ties to the New Continental Army.
Unity - A left winged party.
Unlike it's neighbors Vermont doesn't have a highly mechanized army. The 'Vermont Green Boys', as the soldiers are called are a volunteer force formed from the Wild Life Ranger units of the OSF, and rebel forces who had siezed the area. It is primarily a national militia with a deep focus on woodland warefare. The military doctrine of the state focuses on guarilla tactics, and keeping the enemy away from settlements as long as possible. Urban defense is handled by policing forces who still utilize the equipment of the OSF. Vermont is separated into four Marshal districts. Marshals over see the security forces of each district, and are just below the chiefs of staff.
It's primary military supplier is the UAR.
