History:The Shire was born out of humble beginnings, a small state that many had never heard of. Residents would often be asked "where is that" by people around the nation. Most explanations consisted of "near Boston" or "below Maine and above Massachusetts". Eventually the population grew tired of being a second hand state, where the only national recognition it got was every 4 years during the presidential elections during the first primary in the nation. The people of The Shire wanted a change, but how, and from who? Their glimmer of hope came in the from of a man named Ram Sollick. Born into an average Shire family he was incredibly patriotic to his state and despised the way it was treated by the much larger states. As he aged he slowly gained more and more political influence and power, and one fateful day he decided to run for Governor. Winning by a landslide and receiving 89% of the popular vote, he was welcomed into power with open arms by all who lived in The Shire. His first order of business; offer the national government a deal. In a letter penned to the president, later called The 5 Points Letter, he laid out his terms;
1.Additional federal funding to the state in the order of $1.5 Billion; $500 Million to combat the opioid epidemic in the form of free rehab, $650 Million for a free health care system, and $350 to be given to the state university system to provide free college education for in-state students
2. 4 additional seats in the house of representatives to give the state a fair say in national politics
3. The revival and rebuild of Pease Air Force Base to boost the seacoast regions
4. An executive order to restore the states ability to enforce net neutrality on the internet providers
5.Have the Iowa Caucus moved behind The Shire presidential Primary voting

The President responded with an insulting counter offer of $200 million in federal loans and $15 million in funding for the air force base. Governor Sollick was told by his aids to swallow his pride and accept the counter offer. But her refused, instead he made the decision to peacefully succeed from the nation and great what is now The Independent State of The Shire.
