The tiny nation of Delaware was perhaps one of the more influential breakaways in the region. Since independence (most Delawareans considered their national evolution British rule right to independence, never mind that futility that only lasted a few decades) Delaware has been one of the more foreign-friendly states to emerge from the rubble of the American Revolution. Their transition was even different than most of the other states - her state government never really dropped the mantle of "President", for example. Amid other states who grew more staunchly anti-British, Delaware was always friendly and willing to be the vessel for British meddling in the region.
Peaches had always been an important crop for Delaware - so much so that they placed a peach blossom on their redesigned flag.
