One does not go to the top of a mountain for water or to a white man for the truth.

The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untameable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past.

Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891, Written by L. Frank Baum, Author of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The word Sioux is totally meaningless and is a corruption of Nadouessioux, a Chippewa word meaning adders or enemies. This word was corrupted by the early French settlers to Sioux. The Sioux Nation is a proud culture that has been shaped by the hardships of its past that has it now extremely vigilant in guarding its lands against outsiders who would take it. This is the land where Crazy Horse escaped from prison, Custer was massacred and Sitting Bull was killed for his involvement in the Great Ghost Dance. Laying claim to the largest number of different tribes within a single border, with the Tsalagi (Cherokee to you Anglos) and Sioux being the largest, no single tribe is dominant. The nation is governed by the 20 member Council of Chiefs, represented by one member from each official tribe. These chiefs serve five-year terms and are elected by the Council of Elders, a twenty-member group again made up from a representative from each tribe.

Having taken on the role of what some would call "the NAN police", the Sioux Nation involves itself in many matters throughout the NAN nations. These foreign endeavors are aided by the fact that the nation is the home to the Sioux Defense Force (SDF), the largest military in the NAN. With one year of service within the SDF mandatory for males and females reaching age 18, and 4 years of reserve duty necessary after that, the SDF's ranks are seldom lacking. The Sioux Nation is also home to what many consider the world's premiere special forces unit, the Wildcats. This militaristic society focuses on unconventional warfare, backed up by state of the art weaponry and shamanic magic.

Not surprisingly, the large military force of the Sioux Nation can be partially attributed to one of its neighbors, the UCAS. With tensions consistently high along the Sioux-UCAS border, the two nations have competed with each other for years, in what some may call a game of one upmanship. With these tensions, it is somewhat curious that the nation gets a majority of its arms from Ares, a typically UCAS-affiliated company. Despite the tensions with the UCAS and the large military, the Sioux Nation is not a police state. Internal rivalries between the Tsalagi and the "Five Civilized Tribes" are hidden by the united front the nation puts out to the rest of the world.
