Unhappy Electric system not working at all on WRX

Hello everyone.

I have an 02 WRX that has not been run for a few months because the engine is frozen. I have been out every few weeks to open it up and turn on the electrical system about every 2 weeks. I went out of town and came back and now the electrical system seems to be completely gone. The battery and alternator are good. When the door is open and key in, the car does beep like usual. Although, the 5 beeps when the ignition is turned to the "ON" position and everything else that works while ignition is turned to "ON" or "ACC" is not working. Nothing electrical will work at all. I have checked the important fuses and none are blown.

I should note that the trunk was filling with water when it rained for the last few months until I noticed and bought a car cover. The water never reached any wiring, though.

Does anyone know the best place for me to begin? I know that it is most likely a bad earth connection, but I don't know where I should begin checking grounds.
