The New England Federation (NEF) is a democratic republic on the East Coast of the United States. The scientific expertise of The Institute combined with the military might of the Brotherhood of Steel means that the NEF stands as the strongest political, economic, technological and military superpower in post-war America, rivalling even some pre-war nations. It's population of over 1 million rivals that of the NCR. Washington D.C. serves as the capital city, just like it did for pre-war United States.

Formation Edit

The NEF was formed from the The Institute, the Commonwealth Minutemen and the east coast chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel. As the War of the Commonwealth neared it's end, it was discovered by the Brotherhood of Steel that one of their senior officers known as Paladin Danse was in fact a synth. Whether it was the Institute's intention to infiltrate the Brotherhood or the fact that Danse was a runaway synth freed by the Railroad is unknown. Regardless, this event was highly favourable for the Institute. Shaun, the Director of the Institute, was informed of this by the Sole Survivor, who was also a Knight of the Brotherhood and a close friend of Danse before it was discovered that he was a synth. Shaun, instead of immediately reclaiming Danse, had the charismatic Sole Survivor defend Danse in a brilliantly well thought-out scheme to overthrow Elder Maxson and have the Brotherhood stand down. After Shaun's plan succeeded and the Sole Survivor replaced Maxson as Elder of the Brotherhood, the Synth Retention Bureau dispatched a courser to covertly reclaim Danse, who was declared MIA and believed to be assassinated by a Brotherhood Outcast group. Thanks to the change in leadership of the Brotherhood, they were able to be convinced to cooperate peacefully with the Institute and the Commonwealth Minutemen. At first this alliance was rough, but later it grew into a prosperous superpower that would outclass the Enclave and the New California Republic in almost every, if not all aspects. The Sole Survivor along with Doctors Madison Li, Brian Virgil and Isaac Karlin were able to change Shaun's opinion of the surface and its inhabitants and focus on helping them restore civilisation instead of waiting for them to die out. Shaun was cured by Lorenzo Cabot's serum and he would serve as the first President of the NEF.

Consolidation Edit

Shaun's first act as President was to declare the Railroad terrorists to the NEF for their constant attacks on the institute and by extension the NEF. The raid on the old north church would serve as an test exercise of unity between the SRB and Brotherhood of steel who had been combined into the NEF Army along with the Minutemen. The brutal success of the raid would help ease the tension between the Institute and brotherhood by fighting a common enemy. The only two RR leaders who were taken alive were Deacon and Desdemona while the others were killed in the fighting. While Lancer-Commander Kells, now Commander of the NEFAF talked to Shaun about his case and afterwards Deacon was taken away from his holding facility and never seen again. Officially but it is suspected that he is involved with the FIA (Federation Intelligence Agency). Desdemona was executed by firing squad at the Castle. After this success Shaun began a tore of the NEF Via the prydwen. In the begging of the NEF it had holdings in the Commonwealth, Maine, and the capital wasteland and outlining areas. Shaun elected to form the capital in the ruins of D.C which after a force of synths and former brotherhood forces cleared the city out in an 18 month campaign and made it safe for habitation. The force would remain in the city to serve as it's garrison while it was restored to working order. Back at home the Sole Survivor lead the first real joint exercise of all 3 former factions unity by leading an attack against the raiders at Nuka-World. The successful operation would prove as an overwhelming success as not only were all 3 factions fully integrated in military but they had securing a trading hub connecting to the west.

Government Edit

In 2290 the newly formed NEF congress gathered in Federal City (A new Settlement built in and around D.C) and ratified the Constitution of New England. It guaranteed certain rights of freedom to the citizens of the NEF and that all settlements had to follow the laws set forth by the congress. The power to declare war was given to the Congress while the President and Commander in chief were able to put forth a motion of deceleration of war. The President was able to call for the formation of a provisional army to defend the NEF in times of crisis and if given approval by the Congress to go to war. The Commander in Chief was able to mobilize the Congressional army in order to defend NEF holdings without Congressional consent but could be overridden by Congressional order. This allowed for the immediate defense of the NEF before Congress could make a decision.

The congress would be made up of 1 congressmen for every NEF District. Entry into the congress was carried out via a nomination in congress where the top 3 candidates would be offers a chance then followed by an nationwide election the candidate with the most votes would be granted a seat in congress. The election for President was carried out the same way and they were allowed to serve one ten year term as were member of Congress. The Commander in Chief would be chosen by the President while the Commander General of the army and the Flight Commander were chosen by the Commander in Chief.
