This is an overview of the Free State as per TM 1-1, 3rd Edition.

As you can see Vermont is a small state with a small population. Considering the distance to the borders of the canon Free State, there is not a lot to attract the KFS, but with a nuclear power plant and a large integrated circuit factory, there are possibilities for a colony to be set up.
The reason that the American Army does so well in wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American Army practices chaos on a daily basis.
