The New Confederacy (known as the Confederate States of America inside the US) is a fictional breakway state from the US created by Alexander Sylazhov which features in the novel SOVREV: The Faith Endeavor. Below there are brief descriptions of the state’s history, economy, government, and other aspects.



With a failing economy lagging behind China, massive immigration from Latin America and Europe, a War on Terror dragging on indefinitely and widespread worldwide Jihadist attacks generating a wave of xenophobia and paranoia in the population, religious extremist and neoconservative protestant minister Johnny Marshall was elected as the new US President in a landslide, promising to return the US to its state of former glory and global dominance.

Marshall instituted what became known as the "New Marshall Plan," which included massive taxation reforms and a heavy reestructuring of the economy, promising autharchy and self-sufficiency. All illegal immigrants were deported and people with criminal records were rounded up and sent to labor camps. All US forces in the Middle East and elsewhere were called back home to create a military stronghold inside the US, and all foreign US bases were shut down. The increase in military personnel at a domestic level created a situation where the US Army could routinely patrol the streets alongide law enforcement personnel, generating widespread safety at the cost of increased surveillance and individual freedoms. While US presence worldwide diminished, allowing for other superpowers such as Russia and China to exert their influence, the decreased military spending allowed for the US to experience a newfound era of economic prosperity, becoming, for a short while, the most prosperous country in the world.

However, Marshall quickly sunk in popularity when making religious reforms, turning the US into a theocracy, banning all faiths except for Christianity, and squandering a lot of capital on huge anti-immigration walls along the Mexican and Canadian borders which quickly devoured most resources in surveillance, logistics and infrastructure. Religious investments, such as the creation of lavish religious temples and mega churches, also generated controversy. Unifying all of the US protestant churches into a single one, the Church of Creatonology, which mixed protestantism and creationist doctrines with Scientology, Mormonism and other Christian faiths to create a single Faith for the whole nation, cemented his unpopularity in some states, especially in the South. The Church of Creatonology, much like the Communist Party of the USSR, did not require for citizens to obligatory become members, but it was nigh impossible not to, as Church members had to pay more taxes but received more benefits non-members couldn't enjoy, such as healthcare. These reforms were widely rejected in the South.

With all US forces called back home, the South found itself in possesion of a vast military network with state-of-the-art hardware that had seldom been used, and quickly organized itself into a rebel army to secede from the Theocratic United States. Naming itself the New Confederacy, the South fired the first shots of the Second US Civil War in May 20*7, with the West Coast remaining neutral to both factions.

It is currently unknown what the outcome of the war will be, as both factions enjoy nearly equal amounts of support, manpower and firepower.


The New Confederate flag uses the old design of the original Confederacy but placing a white star (Texan Lone Star) at the center of the circle of stars representing rebel states. The Theocratic Loyalist flag, used by Confederates loyal to the theocracy, substitutes the state stars in the Confederate flag with a white Christian cross.

Government and politics

Like the original Confederacy, the New Confederacy is a Federal/Confederal presidential non-partisan republic.

Economy and law and order

The New Confederacy was born also due to economic discrepancies with the North, with the South often getting the short end of the stick in economic affairs. Johnny Marshall's economic reforms took advantage of many Southern resources to fund his projects in the North, creating further pro-Confederate sentiment.

After all US miitary forces were called back home, the US experienced an increase in economic prosperity due to the reducd spending in military matters. However, that lasted only briefly, as US President Johnny Marshall squandered many resources in deporting immigrants, building massive anti-immigration walls along the Mexican and Canadian borders, and building lavish religious temples all across the country.

Military personnel, patriotic militias, vigilantes and volunteer patrols comprise most law enforcement in the New Confederacy.


English remains the official language of the New Confederacy.


The New Confederacy has rejected the Chuch of Creatonology and theocracy in general since the unifying of the churches, and, despite many Confederates being creationists and religious extremists, there are many who are progressive and oppose all religious extremism.


The New Confederacy found itself with a lot of hardware and manpower from when Marshall called all US military forces back home, and thus remains as powerful as the North.

Public holidays and festivities

Confederate Memorial Day/Heroes Day is the most important festivity of the New Confederacy, a day which remembers the soldiers fallen fighting against the Union yet also signifying a new change for the a present-day Confederacy based on more progressive values.


While the New Confederacy is predominantly protestant, it also stands for religious freedom and diversity, rejecting the Church of Creatonology fiercely.
