Chapter 2:the fight for rule

with Stanvich gone,and no one set to take his place,Ameriganastan went through their first few decades,with several people trying to establish a solid rule of the land.trying to run a growing nation,with a confused government,pretty much led to a controlled anarchy,which was evident when an angry citizen strolled up and stabbed the current ruler,and strolled off,without being caught.though they had managed to turn themselves into a respectable nation by their 100th birthday,they still lacked a good leader.a problem which finally seemed to resolve itself with the arrival of a man named Samuel Lowery.
