Oh Space Canada! Our Home and Native Land!

In this mod you'll play as Noémie Leifsdóttir, Astro-cartographer of the mighty Vesperian Confederacy. Biologically, Leifsdóttir may very well be the youngest amongst the Sponsor leaders. The fact of the matter however, is that although she has only spent 32 of her years "awake", she has been alive far longer than anyone to arrive on this new world. It remains true to this day, that Leifsdóttir is humanity's most well travelled explorer - in both distance and years spent travelling.

Earth Regions: Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia, Alaska, Northern Russian territories

Brief Lore:

Many events prior to the Great Mistake helped make room for the confederacy of Canada to brush aside her former masters and emerge a truly independent regional power. The first opportunity came from the weakening of the USA. As time went on in the 21st century, the once mighty USA had lost much of its imperial authority over the world. With their neighbor in disarray, Alaska was easily annexed peacefully into the confederacy, and the North West Passage was declared Canadian Territory; with rising climate temperatures the northern sea lanes became lucrative trade lanes to own. Seeking a new image, Canada adopted the name "Vesperia", meaning "Land of the the Evening Star".

The second major opportunity came from the great migration that had begun to occur from the south to the north. A combination of climate change creating desertification in the south, and the civil unrest throughout the former United States caused many refugees to migrate to the US/Vesperian borders. This influx in population brought a lot of people from all walks of life into the Great White North; many of these people fleeing the south were of the intelligent caste – doctors, engineers, scientists, skilled labor, etc. – all looking for peace and security.

The final great opportunity that came, was the Great Mistake itself.

After the events of the Great Mistake a few regional powers managed to maintain stability, The Vesperian Confederacy being one of them.

Being vulnerable to invasion from PAC and the Slavic Fed, the various independent Northern Russian states met with a Canadian delegation and joined the confederation. This amalgamation of northern nations caught the attention of the remaining Northerners - Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greenland, and Iceland. It didn't take much for the Scandinavia, Greenland or Iceland to join - seeing the economic and strategic benefits of monopolizing the Arctic circle they all agreed to create one confederated nation under the banner of the Vesperian Confederacy. Looking to head beyond earth, many candidates were considered, but renowned astrocartographer, Noémie Gauthier was chosen in the end. Adopting the last name Leifsdóttir (meaning "daughter of Leif", the viking explorer who discovered the Americas), she leads a voyage to the stars, carrying aloft the hopes and dreams of millions of Vesperians back home.
