Presidential Schools of Americanism

Columbian School:
The Columbian School is the original school of Americanism, or at least the first one to actually gain traction. It is the school that gave birth to Bannister Smithson's Presidential Project, they are an extremely Dogmatic school, and are actively hostile to other religions, especially Anabaptism, given its long history of violence with the Kaysers of Dietscherei.
Gothamite School:
The Gothamite School of Americanism came about in the Republic of New York, rejecting the growing xenophobia of the Columbian School, and as such is much more tolerant of other religions, they also tend to favor Roosevelt the most of the Rushmore Four. They also tend to be Mercantile-focused, New York was the Economic Capital of Old America, was it not?
Lakes School:
The Lakes School was founded by the Avondale Family in Chicago, and existed among the Rust Cult, they support more focus on the New Presidents, as well as encouraging the Oratory Arts. They were almost completely destroyed by Albert Soady’s Great Viking, now only existing in the city of Cincinnati.
Rushmore School:
The Rushmore School is one of the most divergent Schools of Americanism, they actually reject the importance of all Founders except for the Rushmore Four, after all the Founders may be great, but only four were carved into the Very Mountains. They are extremely militaristic, being surrounded on all sides by hostile forces, they gave two Presidents from the Pitchstone Family, but after the conquest of Dakota by the Sioux, they have slowly faded from relevance, barely holding on around its namesake Mountain.
Southron School:
The Southron School used to be common from Miami to Virginia, but have slowly been driven back by the Perfidious “Holy Columbian Emperors”, but they still endure in Virginia, and if the stories are to be believed, in secret throughout the Empire. They are known for their stealth and Subterfuge, and rumor has it a man in dark sunglasses has been recruiting talented spies from his Fortress in Langley.
Filibuster School:
The Filibuster School takes to heart the words of Bannister Smithson "America was not just an empire, it was a way of life." and believes that the light of Americanism must be spread to all the world by force. This makes them extremely Militaristic, even more so than the Rushmorites. They have undertaken major campaigns, taking San Antonio and Gitmo for themselves, much to their neighbor’s chagrin.
The Florida School:
The Florida School is the newest of the Schools of Americanism, and was created by the Waltney Family of Orlando. The Waltneys were treasure hunters who delved into the Swamps of Central Florida in search of relics of the Old World, and what they found stunned them. A whole “Magic Kingdom” centered around a Castle from their dreams. The Florida School has still not been formalized, but the Waltneys encourage idolization of the entirety of Old America, but do not eschew the New Presidency.

Non-Presidential Schools of Americanism
Libertarians:
The Libertarians are not a School in the traditional sense, but rather a wholly different Antiquarian Religion that is considered part of the Americanist Continuum. They are worshipers of Columbia, Our Lady of Liberty, and do not recognize the New Presidency, they are pacifists, but with a Proud Defensive Tradition. Their Priesthood is led by a First Lady in Nashville, but their stronghold is the Palisades region of Jersey, where they maintain the Statue of Lady Liberty in New York Harbor.
Jeffersonian:
The Jeffersonians are a strain of Radical Americanist thought that believes that all people in Old America were Gods, and that the Founders were simply The First Among Equals, after all are there not countless statues of Everyday People around the Nation. They reject the New Presidency as Apostasy, to claim the title of President is to declare oneself to be a God, and the President is Just A Man.
Hamiltonian:
The Hamiltonians are in most respects the inverse of the Jeffersonians, They believe the Founders had more powers beyond those explicitly stated in the legends and the Declaration. They believe that any righteous Americanist can claim these ‘Implied Powers’ for themselves, and if any American can become as Gods, what need have they for a President?

Great Powers of the World (In no particular order)
  1. United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves
  2. The British Empire
  3. Gran Colombia
  4. The Workers Commonwealth of Oceania
  5. The Holy Roman Empire
  6. The Workers Commonwealth of Nippon
  7. Republic of California
  8. Cape Republic




[1] - While no longer controlling any land in Africa or Asia, the natural resources and Industry of Portugal-Brazil ensure she is always on these sorts of lists.

[2] - Though not what she once was since Indian Independence, and with the American Commonwealths and wider Dominions becoming more self-reliant, whether it can even be called an Empire anymore remains up for debate - nevertheless, the deep financial web spread by London keeps the influence of Westminster beyond the confines of the British Isles.

[3] The dominant state of South America, it went from regional power to great power with the construction of the Panama Canal and has remained an economic powerhouse & naval power ever since. Has not fought a war with the United Kingdom for sixty years but sporting rivalries are infamous.

[4] The ones that got a way from the British Empire, the Workers Commonwealth dominates trade in Oceania and also has a vast array of resources from coal, to rare metals and also wool and mutton. It also has economic ties to much of Asia and a series of military alliances that keep the balance of power in Oceania and South East Asia.

[5] The Holy Roman Empire had a rough... few centuries, but they've crawled back since their resurgence in the 18th Century, and now oversees an Industrialized Federal Empire from the former Austrian Netherlands to the Dnieper.

[6] Japan was opened up by the British, and for nearly a century the medieval East Asian state was dominated by the EIC - and when the Oceanian Revolution broke the shackles of Empire, Japan was one of the British vassals to follow. Since then however, Nippon has rapidly increased in stature, to the point of challenging their former mentors for the position of leading workers state in the Pacific.

[7] Rising out of the desert of the American West, one of the oldest Republics in the world and youngest of the Great Powers, oil discoveries stretching from the Oregon coast to the tip of Baja and with flood of immigration over the past 50 years over the Colorado river and Pacific, the sky is the limit.

[8] Ruled by the Princes of Orange, in exile after the conquest of the Dutch Republic by the Holy Roman Empire, the Cape Republic has since grown tremendously as an entity, creating a vast network of alliances with Xhosa, Zulu, and many other states across southern Africa. Most recently, Angola and Mozambique have, since independence, become part of its orbit.
