The Pacifica Confederation, also known as the Pacifica Confed, is an alliance of Free States located on the West Coast of North America.[1]

History[]

The western coast of North America was hit hard during the Fourth Corporate War, and in order to rebuild, a coalition of states was born. The Free States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Northern California, and the Canadian province of British Columbia created the Pacifica Confederation for this very purpose. This new organization was the eventual result of the State Succession that broke much of the old United States, and as such, many of its members were distinctly federalist and only interfered in each other's affairs when they crossed the border. Some of the main reasonings for its creation was their shared hatred over the megacorporations that had wrecked so much havoc years before, and their dismissive attitude towards the ineffectual government of the New United States of America, whom had little to no power over the West Coast.

During the Time of the Red, this "ad hoc, loose grouping" of states was occupied restoring much of the infrastructure lost to the war. They allowed Night City to continue as an independent "city-state" of sorts, granting it the opportunity to become a free trade zone within the Confederation, as well as becoming an entry point for the rest of the world that did not want to deal with the US in any way. By the 2040s, most cities in the Confederation had CitiNets and Data Pools thanks to Ziggurat.

The Pacifica Confederation was a powerful economic region in North America, acting as a main trade port to Asia, which gave the alliance access to a lot of military power. This allowed the Combined Operations Groups, headquartered in the local military bases at Bremerton and Fort Lewis-McChord, to support the Confederation over the unstable NUSA. Despite this, negotiations were held with the New United States over allied membership and independent governance, allowing several large NUSA government facilities on their states. Although these bases had permanent leases, they didn't exercise much control over the local population.

The Confederation was economically powerful and did not have the need to sell out to the megacorps. Nevertheless, they were also willing to work with them but only in their own terms. If the corps ever crossed the line, they would have to deal with their military forces. Thus, despite their ubiquity in Night City, the corporations were much more careful anywhere else in the Confederation, learning the hard way not to mess around with the locals. To the north, the states of Washington and Oregon allowed Biotechnica free rein to design and release a number of experimental plants and animals in hopes it would restore much of the damaged ecology.[1]

Following the end of the Unification War in 2070, the Pacifica Confederation was seemingly dissolved, with the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho uniting under a new association of Free States known as the Western Corporate States, allowing more influence from both the New United States and the megacorps.[2]
