Quebec is an original region of Canada.
The region was occupied by France on July 21, 2009. As part of strategic maneuvers during the PEACE Global Community's advancement on the continent during the Summer of 2009, the region was first ceded to United Kingdom on July 23 and then back to France on August 5. The Canadians managed to liberate Quebec on August 26.
It was notable for having comparatively various resources and for being the main province in Canada to speak both the French and English languages, an arrangement which led to the separation issue, below. Before PEACE GC's involvement there it was reputed to be growing in popularity and prosperity, in part likely due to the creation of the Parti Quebecois. A special Quebec forum was created in March and appears to be mainly for French-speaking (Francophone) citizens.
In 2010, a major political force has emerged from Quebec, under the Union Nationale.
The party's main goals were the development of the influence of Quebec in political affairs and the protection of the rights of the francophone citizens in Canada.
Today, the region is under Romanian control.
Quebec is neighbored by following regions:

Quebec Separation Crisis
On August 08 Quebec stirred controversy in Canada when members of the Parti Quebecois proposed independence of the region, either as an unofficial republic or as part of France. The administration responded by claiming that separatism was anti-constitutional and therefore illegal; the notion, therefore, was never seriously considered.
Following this, however, Pakistani citizen Altnabla pledged support of Quebec and began to pressurize the government. Some members of the The Norsefire Party of Canada also became involved, claiming their Parti Quebecois opposites were terrorists who had requested Pakistan's involvement, and that Pakistan had been threatening Canada with "Political takeover". Pakistan responded by rebuffing the first claim, and although it did admit political takeover had been a consideration, it asserted this was only a suggestion to push the government to recognize and cooperate with the Parti Quebecois.
Critics of this ordeal had been alleged to call the whole issue moot as the only true way for Quebec to join France would be for France to conquer the regions of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, an outcome which, they claimed, was unlikely.
The issue of Quebecan sovereignty, in particular, Pakistan's support for the separation, was brought up by Canadian diplomats in their refusal to join Pakistan in the talks that eventually became the PEACE Global Community.
