Note: This AU started out as an essay I submitted for an essay-writing activity I had in high school where we would create our own fictional country and describe it. Most of this AU is based on what I wrote for that essay.

(Pictures are of real places in the Philippines used to represent places in Corpus Christi. The church shown, Antipolo Church, is located in Corpus Christi in this AU)
Geography:
Corpus Christi is mainly a mountainous country with some flat plains and valleys. The Sierra Madre mountain range starts at Tanay in Corpus Christi. Part of the western border with the Philippines follows the Marikina River. The westernmost point is Pasig City, bordering the Philippines along the Marikina and Pasig rivers, and the easternmost point is Jomalig Island, in the East Philippine Sea.
History:
The Republic of Corpus Christi was founded in 1955 by a Catholic layperson, Gabriel Canlas, who led a militia group during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines in World War II. The country got its name since it was founded on the Roman Catholic feast of Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi declared its independence from the Philippines after numerous communist rebel attacks against the provinces of Morong and North Tayabas, which were to become the Republic of Corpus Christi, were succesfully repelled by Gabriel Canlas' militia group, which held those places after World War II. After independence, Corpus Christi joined the United Nations and in the 1960's became a founding member of the Southeast Asia Treaty Organnization (SEATO). Corpus Christi moved towards industialization and became a major manufactuing center after 1975. Currently, Corpus Christi is one of the most well-developed countries in Southeast Asia, on par with Singapore.
Demograpics:
The people of Corpus Christi are best described as English-speaking Christian Malays. Most of Corpus Christi's heritage can be traced back to the Spanish occupation of the Philippines. This includes the old churches in Antipolo, Baras and Pililia. Most Moronians have Spanish family names, which was a tradition started in Spanish-occupied Philippines. The largest religious groups in Corpus Christi are the Roman Catholic Church, whose followers in Corpus Christi amount to around 44% of the population, and the Anglican Church of Morong, accounting for 40% of the population. 10% belong to other Christian groups, such as other Protestant groups and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The remaining 6% is composed of Jews and others. Since the constitution of Corpus Christi states that “Corpus Christi is a nation of believers of God”, freedom of religion is protected.
Politics:
The political system in Corpus Christi is a unitary presidential constitutional republic, headed by a president elected by popular vote. Corpus Christi has a rigorous training for aspiring politicians, to weed out the 'undesirabes' and only allowing the deserving to be nominated for election. This style of democracy is the hallmark of Corpus Christi's politics, and is the model looked upon by other democratic states in Southeast Asia. This makes Corpus Christi's government a meritrocratic democracy.
Military:
Corpus Christi has a modest, but modern, military, the Corpus Christi Defense Force. The Corpus Christi Defense Force has about 20,000 personnel, 10,000 for the Corpus Christi Ground Defense Force, 5,000 for the Corpus Christi Air Defense Force, and 5,000 for the Corpus Christi Maritime Defense Force. The CCDF's expenditures amount to around 4% of Corpus Christi's annual GDP. Military service is voluntary.

The St. Jude Class missile boats were built in the late 1990's to replace 1960's MTB's converted to missile boats. The St. Jude Class missile boats carry 8 Harpoon Block II anti-ship missiles, which are capable of use in the littoral waters of Corpus Christi. These missile boats are used as patrol boats in peacetime, with the Mk. 141 launchers removed. The St. Jude missile boats were the first new-build ships in the CCMDF to have an integrated combat management system, the Saab 9LV. Currently (2013), the St. Jude missile boats use the 9LV Mk4 version.

Changed the fire control radar of the St. Jude missile boat to CEROS 200, to allow better integration with the Saab 9LV CMS, the standard CMS in the CCMDF fleet.

I'd say that this St.Jude FAC looks a nice boat (but on the technical side perhaps someone more competent shoud speak - personally I'm not sure about that kind of stabilizers), though drawing-wise the superstructure looks bit austere.

The Corpus Christi Air Defense Force is the air warfare arm of the Corpus Christi Defense Force. The CCADF is considered one of the most well-maintained air forces in Southeast Asia. The CCADF also owns aircraft that are used by the other branches of the CCDF, in effect, all air assets of the CCDF belong to the CCADF. The CCADF during the Cold War was involved in interceptions of aircraft entering Corpus Christi airspace. The CCADF also sent units to Vietnam to support US and Allied foces there. Recently, the CCADF also preformed reconnaissance missions with their JAS-39 Gripens during the Zamboanga City Crisis, providing vital data on the movements of MNLF troops who atempted to overrun Zamboanga City and raise their flag at the Zamboanga City Hall.

I originally wanted to use the Sea Giraffe AMB, since this is a mid to late 1990's ship, but I decided not to since it may look too much like a Polish Orkan missile boat:
