Teddy Roosevelt is the leader for America in Civilization VI.

History[ | ]

Roosevelt took office following the assassination of President McKinley in 1901 and, at the age of 42, became the youngest United States President in history – a record he still holds today. Roosevelt championed his "Square Deal" domestic policy, comprised of three basic ideals: the conservation of natural resources, greater control over corporate plutocracy, and consumer protection.

His efforts to regulate corporate "trust" monopolies earned him the nickname "trust buster." He established the United States Forestry Service in 1905 and fought for the conservation of millions of acres of federal land, which are still protected to this day. Roosevelt also coined the iconic phrase "speak softly, and carry a big stick," describing his form of foreign policy of negotiating peacefully while simultaneously threatening with the "big stick." Roosevelt described this policy as "the exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis."

Intro[ | ]

And so it is upon your broad shoulders, Theodore Roosevelt, to charge forth and lead your people on their great adventure. Use your military might to give the peoples of your homeland the square deal they so desperately deserve. Surely you will raise America into the Limelight and attract visitors from across the oceans just to see your lands. Bully for you, Mr. President.
