New Oneida is a subnational area of the Deseret, located in the far north of the country. New Oneida is bordered by the nation of Astoria to the west and north, the nation of Superior to the east, and the areas of Morganland and Wasatch to the south. Its historic capital is Malad, and its largest city is Pocatello.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

New Oneida as a name for the area derived from the both the lake and a bordering county of the former state of New York that settlers of New Oneida used to live in. Oneida County, New York was one of many to face the conceptualization of new religious beliefs during the Second Great Awakening.

War of Contingency[edit | edit source]

Canaanite-Mormon War[edit | edit source]

In turn, Deseret and the newly created Free State of Canaan would spark the Canaanite-Mormon War.

When the war had ended, the result was a stalemate between Deseret and Canaan, so Sierra decided to donate land from Astoria to Deseret to prevent from building tension in the future, since Sierra had saved Astoria from Canadian troops during the War of Contingency.

New Oneida Territory[edit | edit source]

Unrecognized Incorporation[edit | edit source]

After almost twenty-five years of becoming a territory of the Deseret, New Oneida was granted admission to become an area on June 18, 1893. The dispute was settled by ballot as to whether it should either become an area with a certain degree of autonomy, retain territorial status to Deseret, or be returned to Astoria. The vote was met overwhelming majority chose to become an incorporated area with 91% of voters agreeing. However, due to a 42% turnout, the referendum results were not considered valid outcomes.

Symbols[edit | edit source]

The thumbs-up symbol in New Oneida can often be seen in rallies symbolizing Oneida Lake from within the Finger Lakes, which are located in what is now the Congregationalist States within the larger United Commonwealth.

Another common symbol that represented the image of the early settlers just as much as the area today is none other than the New England pine, which can typically be seen around both pubs and heritage sites alike. The symbology is also located on the alternate side of their flag, which they proceeded to use as their own after the former province of Massachusetts opted out. It is the only flag in the Kingdom of Sierra to have a reverse design.

A widely-known symbol in the constituent nation of Deseret is that of the beehive, a key symbol that represents Mormonism.

The potato is a symbol for the farmers that work to provide for larger New Oneidian cities, such as Pocatello, Shoshone Falls, and Blackfoot, as well as for a few smaller towns such as Tyhee and Driggs. Additionally, it is said to represent the upcoming growth of a community.
