Apocrypha[edit | edit source]
The Neo-Aanarchist's Guide to North America (p. 80) has brief details about Hawaii that are inconsistent with later sources:
- Hawaii bailed out of the UCAS in 2038, and set up shop as a constitutional monarchy. Japan backed this new nation as well, but Malama, Hawaii's queen, has done a better job [than California] of walking the tightrope between accepting Japanese aid and losing independence.
