Orders, decorations, and medals of the North American Confederation
The orders, decorations, and medals of the North American Confederation comprise a complex system by which North Americans are honoured by the country's sovereign for actions or deeds that benefit their community or the nation at large. A combination of its Canadian and American counterparts, the structure originated in 2011, but did not come to full fruition until reunion of Illinois and Ohio in 2015, with the establishment of the Order of North America.
The monarch is regarded as the fount of all honours—as he or she is the only person who may create new national honours—and acts as the Sovereign of all of the NAC's orders; he, or other members of the North American Imperial Family, will conduct inductions or present medals.
