(TL;DR version at the bottom of post.)
Emperor Gabriel awoke from his restful slumber, sitting up in his solid-gold bed, comforters and pillows adorned with the colors of his empire: The United Worker's Empire of Zaela, or UWEZ as it was commonly called. He got out of his regal bed on the top floor of his 50-floor tower, and walked over to the balcony, overseeing the entire state of Virginia where his tower was located.
His servant came in, Jenkins, holding a large stack of papers.
"Your omnipotence, Lord Gabriel. What are your orders for today?" He asked, holding himself in a dignified manner.
"Tell the citizens of Pungo that I want the Strawberry exports tripled by this time next week." Gabriel replied calmly, as if the order he had given was not the most ludicrous request ever made.
"B-but your highness..." Jenkin's stuttered, "Pungo has already doubled their exports per your request. They cannot possibly complete that order!"
"Look into my eyes!" Gabriel said angrily, turning quickly to face Jenkins, his wavy golden hair swaying majestically as he did. "Does this look like I'm joking to you?!"
"N-no! Of c-course not, sir-- your highness!" Jenkins said, intimidated by the emperor. "I'll send the order immediately!"
"Good. I love strawberries. Can't get enough of them." Gabriel said calmly, his demeanor quickly shifting from anger to serenity in the blink of an eye. "Leave me, I have matters to attend to."
With that, Jenkins left. Gabriel walked to his closet, pulling out a majestic red uniform that was adorned with several multi-colored sashes and gold trimmings, with black slacks. He was the emperor, after all; he had to dress the part. With his royalty now firmly asserted, he gracefully walked out of his room. Taking the elevator (with no more than twenty armed guards to defend him every step of the way) he made his way to the war room to decide battle strategies.
"Your excellency," the General standing on the end of a large table, Achilles, greeted Gabriel as he entered. The table had the entire map of North America unfolded across it's surface, complete with a list of all the territories occupied by the neighboring empires. "We must expand outward and conquer this puny continent."
"Agreed," Gabriel said calmly, holding a confident smirk. "Very well, for our first mission, we will claim West Virginia, South Carolina, and Kentucky."
"Excellent choice, Emperor Gabriel," Achilles responded, nodding at the emperor as he made his choice.
"Soon, those eleven secret herbs and spices will be mine!"
"What was that, your majesty?" Achilles asked.
"Oh, nothing!" Gabriel said with a smile. "Just thinking out loud. Now then... for troop movements... send 4,000 troops from Tennessee to Kentucky; and 3,000 troops from North Carolina to South Carolina."
"At once, milord."
"Now then, fetch me a smoothie. Your emperor is thirsty."
"Right away!" One of the servants in the room responded.
"And make sure it's Strawberry flavored!"
Utah, Baja California and Arizona
Move 3,000 troops from California to Arizona, move 500 troops from California to Baja California, and move 3,000 troops from Nevada to Utah.

The North West Company sees much economic value in expanding its trade routes, and wishes to expand its borders! We'll also need to divide our militia to maintain the best hold our monopoly.
Claims: Alaska, Saskatchewan, Montana.
Move: (Can I just say where they all end up?) 3000 on Alaska, 3000 on Yukon, 5000 on BC, 3000 on Alberta, 9000 on Montana, 7000 on Saskatchewan.
We'd like to request a non-aggression pact with the People's Democratic Federal Republic of Not Yugoslavia. (Beaver hats are big in California, I'm telling you...) @Please Understand
And @Jabberwocky, how are battles resolved? It's a bit unclear in the first post.
We move 2000 troops to Honduras from Nicaragua. That little piece next to Panana, we move 1500 soldiers from Panana towards there which still should be technically Panama.
End Round One
Remember that everyone gets 6000 more troops each phase, so plan your movements accordingly.
Round two begins now.
