It helped of course that when that happened in the US, that the states that seceded were backwards technologically and militarily. And there was also the slavery thing that gave the Union a moral high ground.

History doesn't always repeat itself. But for example in terms of the high tarriffs that the South was being forced to pay, there are parallels.
