Election, disillusion, revolution, jail. A modern President knows challenges her forebears never did.

Modern America has been used to being the richest, most powerful country on earth. It’s a tough job, and year by year it gets tougher. The righteousness, pride and glory come with burdens, costs and pain.

Depression has been running for years. Unemployment is high. There is turmoil in the Middle East, trade disputes between the West and Asia, and money markets start to bridle against the US lead.

The Joint Chiefs fear the nation’s downfall. Political Action Committees can offer funds. The righteous forces muster quickly, and then the President herself is taken into custody. There is no lack of foreign support for the humbling of America.

The United States was born in revolution, and forged through civil war. Now its leader has been unseated in a coup, what force and what values will win through?


Chapter 1

The United States of America has long been used to being the world’s top country. Its military prowess means that it can do things all its allies put together could not do. Its economic strength gives Americans a wealth few people in all history have enjoyed. American brand names can be bought almost anywhere round the globe. Americans are used to the idea they can do anything they want. They can have anything they want.
