United Republic of North America
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The United Republic of North America (abbreviated URNA) is a loose association between the nations of Canada, Mexico, and the political remnants of the former United States of America. It is located on the continent of North America on the human homeworld of Earth.
By the 26th-century, Washington state had ceased to exist as a political entity. However, the Commonwealth of Kentucky had been absorbed into the URNA. Around the early 2540s, New Phoenix was the fourth most populated city, behind Chicago in third, Los Angeles in second, and New York City in first.
At least one engagement of the Human-Covenant War, the Battle of Cleveland, was fought in North America; during the battle, many citizens of the metropolitan city attempted to flee north in boats from the invading Covenant forces to Canada. While the city suffered minimal damage from hostile and friendly fire, many citizens were killed by the genocidal Covenant. During the battle, the UNSC established a relief camp in the nearby city of Akron. During the final stages of the Battle of Earth, Covenant forces retreated to North America while the Prophet of Truth fled to Installation 00, with at least one Jiralhanae expedition deploying to Arizona to locate and activate a Forerunner artifact. This effort was foiled by elements of the UNSC Home Fleet.
The New Phoenix Incident
In July 24, 2557, the city of New Phoenix was attacked by the Forerunner known as the Didact. Using a device called the Composer, the Didact extracted the mental patterns of over 7 million people. MCPO John-117 stopped him using a HAVOK nuke, destroying the Composer and the Didact's flagship, although some of the consciousnesses of the composed New Phoenix residents were transferred back to Requiem and converted into new Promethean Knights.
The URNA features deserts and tundra. It is as well verdant.
