The Territories of Borealia, known more commonly as Borealia, was a communist state that existed between December 15, 2013 until July 17, 2015. It was made up of six provinces and ten territories. The national languages were English, French, Spanish and some areas recognized regional languages. The currency was the Borealian Dollar but the Bahamian Dollar was widely accepted. Borealia conquered much of Central America and the Carribean before allowing all these territories independence on July 14, 2015. Two days later, the Borealia Dollar failed and the country collapsed.

Borealia had many hills and countrysides filled with trees and an abundance of maple trees in the provinces. The Caribbean territories were mostly mountainous. Borealia consisted originally of six provinces: Huron, Erie, Ontario, Muskoka, New France and Eastern Ontario. Territorial acquisitions went on during the Spring of 2014, adding ten territories to the confederation.
The Bahamas was the first territory conquered. It was also the most loyal to mainland Borealia and the government.
Cuba was conquered second, and was the largest single territory.
Originally set up as part of the Bahamas, it was given territorial status shortly before Cuba was added to the confederation.
Turks and Caicos
Also once part of the Bahamas.
The islands were once part of the Puerto Rico territory.
Also originally within the Puerto Rico territory.
The last region to join the nation before the country collapsed.
Conquered in 2015.
Slightly smaller than Cuba, and consisting of parts of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Honduras.
Borealia used the British flag for two days after independence. Then, a new flag was adopted.
This new flag featured the British flag in the upper left corner, to symbolize the English heritage of many citizens. The blue represented the Great Lakes which surrouded the provinces. This flag was disliked by French-speakers who wished for either a flag that symbolized both English and French history, or a completely Borealian flag.
In January of 2015, two flags were proposed for a new Borealian flag.
The government finally decided on a flag which began to be used on January 29, 2014
The Dollar Fails
The dollar failed shortly after the territories regained their independence. Millions of Dollars were lost when the Government Representatives of the Territories were payed 2.5 million each, resulting in the provinces losing money. Inflation occurred on products relating to government, businesses or national security. This caused even more smaller issues. The government finally couldn't handle anything anymore, and the Dollar went under and became useless. Two days later, the country collapsed, and the land was gifted to Canada.
