The United Isles of America are a coalition of sixty islands.
As a whole, the islands are vaguely shaped like the USA, part of Canada and Mexico. A few islands are roughly outlined like the states, as in the case of Idaho or Texas, but most bear no resemblance to their namesakes.
Aside from streets there were springrails for movement over greater distances. Even different islands are connected with springrail routes.
There's not much known about the ancient history of the United Isles. When the JoSeun were conquering Britannia a lot of refugees fled to the United Isles. Their monarch, King Gregory III, fled there too. He was the one who first discovered Rithmatics.
Little culture is referenced or explained, but the people of the United Isles seem to be focused and content. There seems to be much class division between the rich and the poor. The people seem to be kept uninformed about what is going on in some of the other islands, most notably Nebrask.
English is the official language of the United Isles, though there seems to be Spanish, French, and Portuguese-dominated islands.
