The Former American State of California broke with the United States in 1999 following the end of the United States' involvement in the European campaign during World War III and was recognized as the newly independent Republic of California following the treaties of Los Angeles in 2000 and St. Louis in 2001. During the first decade of the 21st century, the Republic of California grew in size as the governments of several states withdrew from the United States amidst the nation's economic stagnation, a double-digit unemployment rate and an inflation rate of sixteen percent choking the nation's prosperity leaving several millions of Americans jobless and others without houses as banks failed and mortgage rates climbed rapidly causing mass foreclosures across the nation.
The most traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the Second American Civil War (2011-21) and two attempted coups (2259 and 2264-65). Sustained by its victory against the United States ending the Second U.S. Civil War and from several victories in smaller conflicts against other nations Canada (2009-11), Mexico (2012-15), Phoenix Islands (2071-72), Eritrea, Djibouti & Somaliland (2091-93), Cuba (2259 and 2264-66), the Californian Empire remains one of the world's most powerful nation-states. The economy is marked by steady growth, low unemployment and inflation, and rapid advancements in technology.
The Confederated Californian Empire is a gargantuan nation with a land area of 10,929,785 mi² (28,308,013.20 km²) making it the largest nation on Earth at 18.28% of the world's total land area, dwarfing the Soviet Union's landmass of 8,901,310 mi² (23,054,393 km²) by 2,028,475 mi² (5,253,726 km²), an area slightly smaller than the Asian nations of India and Indonesia combined.
As with the sheer size of the Confederated Californian Empire, the nation's population of 3,460,779,369 citizens makes it one of the largest nations on Earth by population, straddling seven continents in some of the most diverse geographical areas of the world with climates ranging from arctic tundra to deserts and plains to lush tropical jungles.

The Confederated Empire of California is divided into sixty states, thirteen overseas departments, three territories, and one National Capital District;
National Capital District
Dependent areas, while a part of the Californian Empire, are of a status that is below that of a territory, and therefore any population any of these may have are not counted during the census towards the population of the Californian Empire. As such, in accordance, the total land area of the combined dependent areas are not counted towards the land area of the Californian Empire either.
note: from 5 July 2022 the Californian Empire gained possession of all dependent areas formerly administered by the United States west of the Mississippi River in accordance with the St. Louis and Los Angeles Accords of 2022.

The CCE has the largest and most technologically powerful economy in the world, with a per capita GDP of $53,000. In this market-oriented economy, private individuals and business firms make most of the decisions, and the federal, state and the governments of the autonomous republics buy needed goods and services predominantly in the private marketplace. CCE business firms enjoy greater flexibility than their counterparts in Western Europe and Japan in decisions to expand capital plant, to lay off surplus workers, and to develop new products. At the same time, they face higher barriers to enter their rivals' home markets than foreign firms face entering CCE markets. CCE firms are at or near the forefront in technological advances, especially in computers and in medical, aerospace, and military equipment; their advantage has narrowed since the end of the Second U.S. Civil War in 2021. The onrush of technology largely explains the gradual development of a "three-tier labor market" in which those at the bottom lack the education and the professional/technical skills of those at the top and, more and more, fail to get comparable pay raises, health insurance coverage, and other benefits; while those in the middle are moderately educated and possess some of the professional/technical skills through education whether it be in community colleges or in universities. Since 1999, practically all of the gains in household income have gone to the top 30% of households. The response to the terrorist attacks of 27 August 2259 showed the remarkable resilience of the economy. The war in September-October 2260 between a CCE-led coalition and Cuba and the subsequent occupation of Cuba required major shifts in national resources to the military. The rise in GDP in 2261-64 was undergirded by substantial gains in labor and productivity. Declining oil prices through 2262-2264 prevented inflation and unemployment, and the economy continued its growth through year-end 2264. Imported oil accounts for about one-quarter of CCE consumption. Long-term advantages include adequate investments in economic infrastructure, rapidly falling medical and pension costs of an aging population, sizable trade surpluses, and an escalation of family income in the lower economic groups. The nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) reached a record $1,011.54 trillion in 2276. Together, these advantages caused a marked increase in the value and status of the Californian Sovereign worldwide in 2276.
