Before Captain America, who had been transformed by a Cosmic Cube into a Hydra sleeper agent, took over the United States of America, he reached out to Magneto. Expecting heavy resistance from the nation he planned to take over, Rogers decided to neutralize possible mutant interference by granting them a sovereign land in the western United States, with the only condition being that no mutant would be able to step foot on America.

Hydra's official position was that mutant occupation in the region was illegal, and a consequence of the fall of the previous regime. Even though Captain America conceded that a conflict between the two nations would be inevitable once Hydra settled in, he ensured the situation wouldn't degrade into armed conflict in years, giving mutants the opportunity to thrieve during that long reprieve. Finding himself making a deal with the devil, Magneto agreed for the sake of mutantkind.

Xorn was appointed as the leader of this mutant nation, known as New Tian, while Magneto remained presumed dead and hiding in Madripoor.[1] Xorn was just a puppet, however. The true ruler of New Tian was Emma Frost who secretly controlled Xorn with her telepathy from behind the scenes.[2]
