Close up of the New Washington rebel claim area

Although the planet is named New Washington, the Americans lay claim to roughly six million square kilometers in the southern hemisphere. The remainder of the world is divided between Australia, Canada and Russia. This reflects the original settlement being funded jointly by the four governments an private grain producers.
The extensive terraforming has delivered a temperate world capable of supplying bulk grains and processed food to colonies further out and back to the inner sphere including as far as Earth itself.

Each square is 400km across-

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised


New Washington, 2301-After negotiations over export price structures, the representative committee of the New Washington Primary Producers issued an announcement to the media declaring their intention to succeed from the United State of America. Citing the poor treatment of colonial businesses and the unwillingness of the colonial administration to listen to their requests, the colonists have formed a provisional government lead by wheat farmer Liam Wang. Wang, whose family was amongst the first colonists over one hundred years ago, has stated in an early morning press conference that  the people of the American continent deserved to be rewarded for their hard work and would no longer be slaves to the appetite of Earth.
Star Wars Rebellion #8 : The Ahakista Gambit Part Three (Dark Horse Comics)Governor Max Pabst has not been able to be contacted for comment and a total communication blackout was imposed shortly after the rebel press conference indicating that the communications net was under the control of the new regime. From the centre of the capital Saratoga there are reports of troops moving through the streets, although dressed in standard US uniform they have hastily painted the letters ”NW” on their helmets and vehicles indicating that at least some of the National Guard units have defected to the rebel cause.
At this time their is only conflicting and confusing reports coming from the planet but as the situation develops APN  will be there to bring you the news as it happens.
