Idaho is a state in Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It borders Oregon and Washington to the west, Montana to the northeast, Wyoming to the east, Nevada and Utah to the south, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north. Idaho's state capital and largest city is Boise. It was admitted to the Union as the 43rd state on July 3, 1890.

Idaho in "The Breaking of Nations"[]

When Pacifica broke away from the United States in 2031, Idaho became a border state in more ways than one. As it was one of the most Trumpist states in the Union, it did not adopt the "neutrality" policy Nevada had implemented, instead firmly siding with President Mike Pence.[1]

Idaho in The House of Daniel[]

The House of Daniel played several games in Idaho in the early part of July, 1934.[2]

Idaho in Southern Victory[]

During the Second Mexican War, former President-turned Socialist theorist Abraham Lincoln was ordered into exile in either Idaho or New Mexico for the duration of the war. Lincoln chose Idaho.

Idaho in Supervolcano[]

Idaho was badly hit when the Yellowstone Supervolcano erupted. Even though it was generally up-wind of the eruption, falling ash covered the state. No one was sure how many feet, but the U.S. wouldn't have the fleet of bulldozers and trucks to remove it.[3]

Idaho in Worldwar[]

During the Race Invasion of Tosev 3, the Race's Conquest Fleet were able to establish a base in Idaho. Jens Larssen passed through Idaho on his way to scout out Hanford, Washington as a possible site for the American atomic bomb project.[4]

The base was removed following the Peace of Cairo in 1944.

Idaho in The Two Georges[]

Literary Comment[]

Most of OTL Idaho is part of the North American Union province of Oregon, along with all of OTL Oregon, Washington, a small chunk of northwestern Nevada, and northwestern Montana. However, Disraeli controls the southeastern portion of the state along with OTL Utah, eastern Nevada, and western Colorado.[5]
