Economic problems in China, Europe and and South America
To curb inflation and moderate rising food and property prices, the Chinese government had instituted a number of fiscal regulations and amendments.

Argentina, like North Korea, seeked to take advantage of the situation for self gain. The Falklands is given an ultimatum to parse on to Britain demanding that the Falklands should be given to them. Britain rejects the ultimatum. Opposition comes from Bolivia (fears domination by Gringos), America (trapped by the Monroe doctrine), Spain (racist to non Hispanics) and Russia (to open a new front). Chile backs the UK as a way of bursting it's rival's toxic ego trip. Argentina then gives up and backs down.

They were repelled after a month's bitter fighting with the Russians. Norwegian troops rush to there border with Russia fearing the worse, but Russia chose to no start a fight and so Norway backed off.. All 3 of Span’s atomic submarines patrol the Mediterranean and Atlantic around the coasts of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco. 2 more were 3 months later and guarded the coastline of Valencia. By this time California and Baja California had ironically become a wonderful and peace loving hippy-era melting pot of races, cultures, creeds and ideas.
A geomagnetic reversal (often also incorrectly referred to as a pole shift) occurred over the first part of 2023. The world also loses contact with its satellites, so the mobile and satellite communications system collapsed.

Crude oil production in Peru has been declining since the OTL mid-1990s, but the country's total liquid fuels production was bolstered with a small rise from 2025 to 2035 by new fracking techniques that increased output of natural gas liquids (NGLs). Peru scrapped several environmental rules for oil and gas exportation in the Amazon. Western companies began exploring for oil, oil shale, coal, bitumen and gas.
The May 2025 UN summit in Pensacola was called in the wake of the 2020-2022 Liberian and Ivory Coast ebola outbreaks, which had killed 11,000 so far.

Israel and Egypt briefly fought it out in the Sinai Peninsula and the Negev desert in 2026, but soon gave up due to a growing stalemate in the face of looming world crisis.
SARS would make one last major outbreak at this time. The first cases were actually in some rural parts of China during the Aay of 2026, but due to a massive Chinese cover up in Guangdong and Qinghai, it was spread in ignorance to Singapore, Vietnam and South Africa. At first, it was thought by the public that it was nothing more than a new strain of flue. However, infected refugees soon spread the virus to virtually every country on Earth. For about a month, there was no official reaction to the plague and the mainstream news fobbed it of as unrelated local attacks of swine and bird flue, although an increasing level of online rumors began to spread as the infection reaches Spain and India. Birds were massacred by terrified farmers world wide. Little Rock is the exception and try vaccination with some success.
A terrified Liechtenstein also chose joined Switzerland in the December 2026. A 1,125 foot skyscraper is under construction in the outer suburbs of Paris that is expected to be completed sometime between 2029-2032. Solar power, hydrogen fuel cell cars and digital communications technology make great strides in progress across the world.
When the SARS virus had spread to Asia in general a month later, the only Mainland Countries strong enough to fight it were the Siberian SSR, India; and China. Japan, Singapore and Taiwan also survived relatively unharmed because of their isolated position (Islands). In the British Isles, Cornwall was cut off from the rest of the UK by the panicked county council's police and health officials building a wall to hold the "the f***ing Euros, Darkies and 'coughing zombies'" back. Cambridge and Ealy blew the locks and were cut off by the impassable Fens. London was fortified by three regiments of Infantry and a tank corp as European refugees poured in to S.E. England. Protestant and Catholic people united across the island of Ireland and soon sealed the island off from the toxic mainland. Non infected people were evacuated mostly to the North of England, where, like in Scotland, Northern Ireland, Eire and North Wales; Factories made vaccines and weapons. With the help of many chemists rest of the British Army stationed there, they fought the E.U. refuges and SARS virus off.
The then current US administration did not want to spread panic over something as dreadful as a global SARS pandemic, so it took no overt action and instead began spiking food with anti-viral drugs in the well-founded hope that this would covertly kill the Miami outbreak at source and make it’s spread in the USA negligible. Argentina, Iraq, Israel, Turkey, Peru, Mexico, Russia, Poland, Cuba and Canada all followed suit the next month and were equally successful.
The final SARS major outbreak was 4 months later in Irkutsk and caused by a panicking Chinese refugee. It was minor compared to it's predecessors, but helped local separatists push there case for a independent Siberian state. Food riots hit Chengdu. Police and rural protesters clash in Kaliningrad Oblast.

South Korea complains to the UN and a summit is held on it by the UN.
China also took some more military secrets and security data about Ukraine, which it shares with Russia.

Brazil, Bolivia, Venezuela and Argentina complain to the UN and OAS, who condemn the American hacking in South America as "excessive and unnecessary".

Colombia, Peru, Chile and Mexico counter this by declaring their loyalty to America.

The March 2044 saw Saudi Arabia and Iranian forces clash briefly in the Persian Gulf over maritime border issues, so Israel, Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece hold major military training exercises. They also call up there reservist forces.
World War 3 cometh!
The many regional and global conflicts would finally spark World War 3 in 2045!
A world that had fallen apart many, many years ago. Sadly, when it fell apart, with no good was present to build it back up, only evil and greedy Western bankers. And evil did build it up, creating a world to suit Itself, with no room for anything else. Electro-lasers, masers and laser guns were common place in most industrial nations after 2045.
Germany had the chance it was looking forward to, a chance to betray and conquer eastern France, Bavaria, Poland and then intimidate the rest of the EU in to folding up. France and Belgium soon fell despite of thire heroic and dogged resistance, but later Padania and Norway held out longer and Basque Republic did not fall at all. Indeed, even German poisoned gas failed to deter the Basques, many of whom died in the war! Nonetheless, Germany was still genocideing Belgian, Bavaria and Poland after their fall in mid 2040. Over the 4 years of heavy the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Barbados, Turkey, Israel and USA finally freed France and Padania in 2044. As this happened Spain finally collapsed into rival, warring provinces and several French provinces like Normandy went there own way. Baden-Baden and Württemberg also dumped Germany and sued for peace in late 2044.
Buoyed up on their success, the UK conquered Normandy for the hell of it and America began enter a period of militant nationalist paranoia with a still safe Argentina, Switzerland, Paraguay, Tonga, Malawi, the Maldive Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Cuba, China, Burkina Faso and Japan. Several KKK car-bombings also independently hit their capitals in late 2044 without government or public approval or knowledge!
A limited nuclear war took place in early 2045, destroying many military and political sites in Russia, America, India and China, along with a few military bases in Argentina, Germany, India, Pakistan, Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Canada, North Korea, South Korea, Thailand, Australia, Iran, Vietnam, the Philippines, Kazakhstan and the UK. Some places like Budapest, Baku and the Australian Mt. Isa mine complex were also hit on occasion.. Electro-lasers, masers and laser guns were used extensively by all the combatants in the war.
China blinked first and readied it's nukes after a 0.5kt Serbian suitcase nuke pointlessly and needlessly blew up in a popular Ankara mosque.
They planned a one off preemptive strike with a 21kt ICBM on the American satellite state of Guam, but the Russians decide to go crazy and needlessly flatended Budapest, Pittsburgh, the Vegas Strip and Cincinnati with 3 50kt ICBMs on each. Luckily the anti-missile-laser shot down the 2 100kt ICBMs that was heading for Pearl Harbor and LA while the ICBMs were still out at sea. Along side this a 1kt North Korean suitcase nuke was also inexplicably and needlessly detonated at the Mt Iza mining complex in Australia, causing much damage. This needless act would also help to aggravate the geo-military situation!
America hit back and got Zagorsk, the arms complex on Vozrozhdeniya Island in the Aral Sea and the Magadan Oblast missile silos each with a 40kt ICBM. A 70kt missile also hit the bigger Chita missile silos that were also stationed in eastern Siberia. Russian losses were also reduced when the anti-missile-missiles shot down a 2 70Kt ICBMs meant for St. Petersburg, Irkutsk and Vladivostok while it was out at sea. America then fires an AGM-86 ALCM with a W80 (5kt) warhead in to Vladivostok’s navel dockyards. Several conventional blast bomb type cruse Tomahawk missiles also hit it, along with Moscow, Shanghai and Tehran.
The UK and France used a 15kt bomb on Vladikavkaz, Murmansk navel base and Sevastopol navel base to help the USA against their common enemy. Israel also detonated a 1kt suitcase bomb in Beirut to help undermine the Hamas dominated regime.
The Russians then used a 15Kt bomb on RAF Fylingdales and the San Rochelle shipyards.The long feared pan-global war began finely in early 2045, but a unrelated emergent narco-war in South America also resulted in multiple countries from around the world fighting for the de-facto control of Brazil! Later that year the USA (somehow and totally inexplicably) kept on losing all battles in the Pacific with the Chinese and N. Koreans due to the ever unpredictable weather in the region, plus the ever present confusion caused as endless rebellions started popping up everywhere there was an inter-ethnic grievance brewing in Russia and the Ukraine! All European and Russian national frontiers were very unstable at this time and regularly changed on a small, localized scale every few months! Indeed, America, France, Serbia, Germany and Russia spent more time fighting over Hungary that year than on anything else, with the exception of arms and pesticide production.
2 LGM-118 Peacekeepers with 10 MRV (6 shot down by Russia) Avco Mk21 re-entry vehicles each carrying a 300 kt W87-0 warhead slam in to the Russian missile base and airfield in Orenburg Oblast.
5 RT-2PM2 Topol-M missiles (2 shot down by the USA) carrying a single 800 kt warhead slam in to Fairbanks AFB.
French S3 (SSBS) missile with a a single 1.2 Mt TN 61 warhead hits the Chita launch site to take it out and stop another assault by it. 2 Dongfeng-41 Thermonuclear weapons shoot up, 1 has a single 1 Mt warhead and 1 has 10 MIRVs (2 shot down by the USA) with 250 kt and they screw Aria 51 in to the Sh1t.
French S3 (SSBS) missile with a a single 1.2 Mt TN 61 warhead hits the Shanxi province launch site to take it out and stop another assault by it.
Germany then carpet bombed Warsaw in the end of May of 2045 and then invaded Poland. Victory occurred after 6 months of bitter fighting.
A http://www.wikiwand.com/en/RS-24_Yars ICBM with 4 250 kiloton MIRVs Took out Norfolk, Virginia and 15kt explodes over Munich.
Russia decided to finally let of a 1kt suitcase bomb in Tower Hamlets, Essen, Pittsburgh, the Vegas Strip, Wall Street, Hollywood, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Warsaw, Lviv and Gdansk dockyards on May the 30th for no apparent reason other than to cause wanton loss of civil lives and property.
Days later, The Netherlands blew it's dykes around many of it's polders and hid in the western remnants of the Polderland, fighting Germany all the way. Hungary, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia put up a spirited and unified defense of their homelands, and held their ground against Russia, but at a heavy cost. A small band of highly trained and dedicated American troops let of a 0.1kt Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM) and a new Russian Air Station near Kust in Slovakia. A Russian 2S3 Akatsiya 152mm self-propelled artillery peace fires a 'ZBV3' (designated RFYAC-VNIITF) 1 kiloton nuclear artillery shell a distance of 17.4 km on to Warsaw. Taking note of the situation, some neutral states prepared for the worse, with the mountainous nation of Switzerland acting fast to hold out as did the quickly fortified micro-nations like Monaco. China's government also computer viruseed Tesco’s and Walmart's corporate computers in order to ruin thire corporate trading plans. China then hacks the USA and stole loads of industrial secrets. China also takes some military secrets and security data about Ukraine, which it shares with Russia and India. America retaliates in kind against China and chairs the data with Canada, Mexico, France Australia, Japan, the UK and NZ. then also hack Brazil, Venezuela and India out of hawkish paranoia. Throughout the year, the Russia sacrificed many of its prized armored divisions whilst they built a huge and EU mine field, burm and tank pit complexes across the Russian Federation, it contained Stalingrad, Leningrad, Krasnodar and Moscow. Desperate Russian troops invaded and took south western Alaska in the September of the year, and thus utterly destroy the west of the state, whilst the USA ignored the Alaskan pleas for help for several weeks, save for chucking 5 15kt nukes on to the Russians held south western coastline, 1 15kt nuke on to Vladivostok navel base and a 40kt nuke onto the Amur ICBM silos. This gave rise to the right wing rebels of the Alaskan Independence Movement in the December of that year.
It finally came to an end when China carried out it's threat and nuked Guam as well as using another 20kt ICBM to bow USAF Subic Bay, in the Philippines. They had wanted to bast it to to matchwood as well, but never officially declared this to the west! 2 ISIS bomb injurer several people. 2 explode in Amman, 1 explodes in Tbilisi and 1 explodes in Yerevan. ISIS, the PKU, Hamas and the FSA call a seas-fire with the Assad regime.
The UN Secretary General, ICRC Sectary General, the Pope and the King of Bhutan all condemn the use of atomic arms and pray for peace at the UN.
Every one then waited for about a month or so and then finished destroying each other of as military and economic powers in the nuked out hell called World War 3.
Thailand who was also struggling with Panatti separatists and at war with Cambodia, when they were invaded by Myanmar (Burma), which struggling with it's own separatist factions. A few months later both nations collapsed to Cambodia's relief as famine, cold, E.coli O157, Cholera and radiation took their toll across the world!
The national authorities turned off and mothballed the Túpac Katari 2, Inmarsat 2, Eutelsat QV2035, Globalstar 2, the 8 O3b2s and both SwissCube-2s and the 3 Arabsat II satellites until the war had ended, but by the the Arabs, Swiss and Bolivians were no longer able to operate them. The satellites stayed aloft as planned, slightly scratched by stardust, faithfully waiting for a future nation to switch them back on again!
Several heavy weather events occurred with in days-
- Several northern Brazilian coastal floods and heavy storms occur.
- Several northern Dutch coastal floods and heavy storms occur.
- A moderate hurricane hits the Okinawa, Guam and Palau islands.
- Several coastal floods and storms around the Yellow Sea Coastline and South China Sea.
- Several coastal floods and storms in Vladivostok .
- Heavy blizzards occur in Jeuno.
- A drought and later famine hit Burkina Faso and the Niger.
- A moderate hurricane hits the south of Florida.
- A minor rural southern earthquake and a minor drought hit Borneo.
Most Vietnamese coastal radio towers and rice silos had survived with minor damage as they were already hardened against hurricanes and the flooding did not reach high or far enough to destroy much.
The Brazilian military's top bunker in the capital city of Brasilia and the French presidential bunker in Every near Paris are reinforced against nukes and thus and the governments mostly services in them.
Some how the systems used by Radio Tandem, a local radio of Kazakhstan operating at FM frequencies of 103.60 in Atyrau and 104.70 in Aktobe, as well as those of the identically named Radio Tandem, a local broadcaster located at Bolzano in Italy's South Tyrol, Italy; were miraculously unscathed until the atomic war. Some EMP damage did occur and they were shutdown 3 months after the war was over.
A E.coli O157 epidemic also hit parts of Haiti, Waziristan, Los Angels, Zimbabwe and South Sudan in late 2045 and early 2046.
A near global dark age occurred for 2 years as the early human survivors lived in a cold hell produced by an atmospheric overcast and temperatures of about 1-2C. blow average outside of a few equatorial patches. Most nations rapidly collapsed to a provincial and sub-provincial level in the ensuing chaos and so civilization almost ended in much of the world. Humans would start the road to recovery as a new set of minor nations and provinces after 5 years of hard toil had passed. Rainfall wound increased on average by 10cm for a yearly total in Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Angola, Colombia Donegal, Seattle and Wiltshire in mid to late 2045. The hippies final got hold of the California popular vote, declare UDI after winning the governorship. They call their new nation "The Democratic Republic of Hyper-California". Australia, China, Japan, Quebec, Ireland, Catalonia, France, Portugal, Jamaica, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Russia, S. Africa, India, Kurdistan, Venezuela and Cuba all show much interest in the new nation and offer it much needed help and assistance.
West Africa fell in to chaos and anarchy for the next 20 years. The forested mountainous region of Guinée forestière (Forested Guinea) in southeastern Guinea and northeastern Sierra Leone became a safe-haven for the regions Bantu speaking West African refugees.
In the direct wake of the 3rd World War the White "Brancos" and Coloured "Prados" started a 5 year civil war from 2046 to 2052, in a the undamaged Brazil. They formed 2 racially pure states out parts of the country, but were mostly suppressed by the federal authorities. Neither Chile, Honduras or Brazil were damaged in the World War 3, but were socially breaking down due to the global chaos. The unharmed Dominican Republic also quickly vasselated a equally unharmed Haiti after a 9.5 earthquake flattened Pauto Prince in 2046.
2047 and beyond...
A new round of nukeings bagan as a 5kt German nuke hit Topelcanny in Czechia, who declared martial law in the following weeks and detained large numbers of people under the precedence that they were pro-Russian dissidents and German spies. With in 3 months, 5,000 had been executed, mostly without a trial and/charges against them. The country would go through extremely difficult times with long bread queues in front of empty food shops
The Russian forces in Syria's ports and airfields were hit by 15kt NATO bombs, with the majority of attacks taking place in western area of the country. A 100kt NATO ICBM hit the port of Tartous. A 1kt Russian suitcase nuke also hit the Wailing Wall in Israel in the name of Anti-Semitism and Arab-Nationalism. Western and Central Syria had descended into anarchy amid the devastation that had written-off many towns and cities of the region. In the east however, in particular the governorates of Al-Aleppo, Ar-Raqqah, Deir ez-Zor, and Al-Hasakah, mostly untouched, except for the radioactivity blowing from the strike zones, surviving government officials were attempting to impose order and re-establish the old government. Between 4 to 5 million people were crowded into the region, many refugees from the rest of the country. After about a month, surviving Syrian Ba'athist government and military leaders convened in the city of Deir ez-Zor lead by the now confused and war-traumatised army General, Ali Mansour Husseini and 2 of his loyal deputies.
The next few days were were extremely chaotic. Remote areas of the country had no idea of what had taken place other than the limited information the military could share. In the northwestern region of Jordan, it was evident something terrible had occurred. The hundreds of fires ignited by the explosions over Amman as Israeli, American and German troops marched in to Deir Alla, Marka and Al Mafraq respectively. Raped, tortured and badly injured survivors began to flood nearby areas which had escaped direct hits, overwhelming medical facilities. As the government of Jordan attempted to restore order and ascertain the full extent of the destruction, much of this leadership would focus around the beloved King Ali. A Russian 5kt had destroyed both Prince Hassan Air Base and Pumping Station H-5.
In the wake of World War 3, the fledgling Neo-Hellenic Republic was not considered a serious threat by the major world powers or it's neighbours. The interim government moved operations to Heraklion, on the island of Crete after Athens was hit by a 5kt Russian nuke. A 5kt nuke had hit also hit the Burgas, Varna and Yambol, in Bulgaria, But Sofia was spared. While the Greek government established themselves in Crete, but social order began to break down throughout northern Greece as 20,000 Serbian and Bulgarian refugees flooded in. It also had the highest rate of Neo-Paganism in Europe. Neo-Hellenism (a renewed belief in old Greek gods like Zeus, etc). It also regained many small Aegean Islands such as Lesbos, Rhodes and the south of the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus after a brief war with the Democratic Republic of Izmir during the January of 2047.
The Lusitanic Commonwealth (Portuguese: Comunidade Lusitânica), commonly known as Lusitania (Lusitânia) and Greater Portugal was formed as a intercontinental federation covering Cape Verde, Portugal, San Tome and Principe, the Canary Islands and Gibraltar. The nation was established in the January of 2047 with the restructuring of the Portuguese run Lusitanic Community (Lusosphere) into a commonwealth of equal states.
When the first nuclear strikes came in 1983 Boston was hit with a Russian 1kt nuke. Millions died. The survivors fled west as the thought they would be safer in the rural hinterland Along the way the survivors attacked each other food or died of starvation. The people started fighting each other. It was total chaos.
Albany, New York, was flooded by refugees and Reading city-state in southeastern Pennsylvania centered in Berks County. The city-state has claimed the surrounding counties which contained major targets during the nuclear attacks of September 25, 1983. Thinking themselves fortunate to be alive, and housing hundreds of refugees in the aftermath, the city officials proclaimed themselves caretakers of the remnant of Pennsylvania coming to them from Philadelphia and Harrisburg.
The United Counties of Stokes Forest is a small survivor community based on Sussex County in north-western New Jersey, Pike and Wayne counties in north-eastern Pennsylvania, and a small bit of surrounding territory in both states as well as in New York State just across the former border. When the word of what happen came, the town called a town meeting. They decided to cut down a local forest and put up farms and a rationing system. When they thought the U.S.A perished, they seceded.
Provisional Maine was the islands and group coastal counties across southern Maine. After the state government in Augusta collapsed, the citizens took their own here and organized a provisional government. However the "State" only makes up no more than 275,000 people, but yet this has not stopped the government from growing across southern Maine. A 1kt Russian nuke destroyed part of Portland so Haven did not receive too many refugees. About a week after Doomsday, since no word from Augusta reached Portland and Haven, the local government officials had set up a provisional government. The town of Rumford was home to several paper mills that would slowly restart over the next 20 years.
Silesia declared UDI and fully broke away from Poland after vicious coal and food riots broke out in January of 2047.
A E.coli O157 epidemic lead to North Korea being unable to see of it's neighbours' aggression in the March of 2047.
Urban food riots occurred in the Luanda, Rajgir City in India’s Nalanda district, Glasgow, Brunswick County in North Carolina, the remains of Manhattan Island, Niamey, western Belgium, Ethiopia, Dakar in Senegal, Timbuktu, Nairobi and in central Iraq in the May of 2047.
Urban food riots occurred in the Luanda, Glasgow, Miami, Dili, Ethiopia, Damascus, Sidney, Nebraska, Tibet and Iraq. New Zealand declares a state of emergency as urban food riots occurred in Auckland in the June of 2047.
Urban food riots occurred in the Luanda, Glasgow, Miami, Ethiopia and in Iraq on the October of 2047.
Arlington experienced a minor economic boom between 2047 and 2057 from Maryland's and Virginia's trade in hand tools, bricks, fruit, tents, Iron, furniture and planks with Mexico, Peru, the Republic of Ireland, the New CSA and the UK in 2048, but it never permanently regained its former prosperity.
Thailand's remnant states fell into anarchy in late 2047, as did Somalia, which was soon predated by it's neighbours from 2047 to 2049. Chile, Argentina, the breakaway nation of Patagonia and Brazil then squabbled continuously for the first 2 years after the war over the ownership of the the Falklands and South Georgia.
Chile won and the locals came to except Patagonian rule since anything was better than the Argentinians! At about the same time the city center of the Ituri conflict was wrecked in days of tribal riots the between the opposing Lendu and Hema tribes as food and water supply dwindle.
50 years of chaotic hell
An asteroid that exploded over western Russia, injuring more than 2,000 and damaging 50 buildings in 6 cities in Ryazan Oblast, including in city Ryazan itself in 2049.
The remnants of Poland and Hungary were not alone in its new found opportunities and troubles in an imploded Europe. With the collapse of Russian and German occupying authorities. Virtually all of the newly re-independent neighbors began fighting over borders: Romania fought with Hungary over Selkaland, Yugoslavia with Italy over Rijeka, Poland with Czechoslovakia over Cieszyn in Silesia, with Germany over Poznan and with Ukrainians over Lviv. Ukrainians, Belorussians, Lithuanians, Estonians and Latvians fought against each other and against the Russians, who were just as divided through out the 2050s.
Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, the TNC, Lebanon and Turkey all singe a mutual defense pact in 2053. The year long uprisings in northern Spain in the 2053 were suppressed. Many Portuguese didn't want to suffer the new yoke after Casteale's invasion of it. By the Constitution of 2054, Portugal was a parliamentary republic. Only citizens who could read and write and the heads of household, aged 20 and over, were permitted to vote.
China, Japan, Australia and Mexico all send several satellites to the Moon, Ceres and Mars in 2054

Jamaica offers help to all Black Caribbean nations in distress, so the Dominican Republic takes it up and agrees to a joint free trade and defence treaty. Jamaican aid saves the people of Antigua from starvation.
Satanists, Neo-Kemetism, Italo-Roman neopaganism, neo-Atenism, Wicca, Celtic Druidism, Italo-Roman neopaganism and neo-Hellenism took off as a major revival in Europe, Russia, Egypt, Texas and Nova Scotia through out the 2060's.
Satanists, Neo-Kemetism, Italo-Roman neopaganist, neo-Atenit, Wicca, Celtic Druidic cultists, Italo-Roman neopaganists and neo-Hellenism were all slain by atheist, anarchist, Islamic and clerical fascist christian militias slain many across Europe a establishment backlash occered. The Pope, the Arch-Patriarch of all Russia and the president of Belorussian lead the fight against the pagans.
The Colombian Congress ordered increased oil and gas drilling to start in 2070 and this continued until 2175. The peak of this time period was between 2077-2091, when the world was rebuilding.
A united Jewish, Christian, Islamic and Sikh radical militia wipe out the British and Irish Druidic cults in 2076, but some survived in rural Ireland, north west Wales and northern Scotland. The small, but growing, European Odinism, Satanists, Germanic Heathenry, Wicca and Rodnovery cults were wiped out by Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Communist and Phalangist militias in 2077. Both the Zalmoxian cuts and the Romuva cults in Latvia and Lithuania were wiped out by Catholic ultra-nationalists/clerical fascist gangs a year later on the orders of the desperate Pope himself! The followers of the Udmurt Vos practiced in hiding for 123 years after this occurred and then emerged to a more tolerant world in 2200, where they could enjoy their faith in freedom!
In 2072 a tornado destroyed most of Lima, a R.S. 9.8 earthquake devastates Kandahar in 2075, a R.S. 9.8 earthquake devastated the zone around Lake Urmia in N.W. Iran during 2085 and several volcanoes badly erupted in Ecuador in 2095. Zimbabwe and N. Korea had finally collapsed and fallen in to anarchy by 2075 and were then over-run and divided between their desperate neighbors by 2095!
China, Japan, Australia and Mexico all start building small colonies on the Moon and Mars in 2074
Meanwhile, a several other plant, fish and animal species survive (basically Mediterranean, temperate, boreal, continental, maritime, cold-arid, cold semi-arid, cold steppe, tundra, taiga, continental steppe, alpine and polar types only), with most animals and plants living near the remaining humans, or in sheltered and remote places. There was is tundra in Seoul and pine trees in Madrid and so on due to the big freeze. Other than the oceans, large bodies of water are rare, although they were also present under most of the ice.
Rainfall wound unexpectedly increase on average by 1cm per year in Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Angola, Arizona and Wiltshire between 2075 and 2121.
A major earthquake, estimated by Brazil and Ireland to be a RS 7.5 tremor suddenly and inexplicably hits Wisconsin and Iowa in mid 2075, causing several deaths and many injuries.
An asteroid that exploded over NY State, injuring more than 4,000 and damaging 38 buildings in 9 cities in the Upstate Region including Albany in 2079.
A severe famine and a cholera outbreak hit Europe and western Russia, killing many people during 2085 and most of 2086. The Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), also known among farmers as 'blue-ear pig disease' also killed some pigs in late 2086 and early 2087.
Things stabilised, for the moment
Spreading neo-Communist influences resulted in neo-Communist revolutions in Munich, Berlin, Budapest, Gdynia and Prešov in 2121.
China, Japan, Australia, Saudi Arabia and India all start building small colonies on the Moon and Mars in 2122. The ECOWAS nations would jointly do likewise in 2122.
Perekop Peninsula (or Periskop peninsula) is no more!
A RS 9.5 earthquake caused avalanches in the Yayla mountains during the middle of 2147. The Periskop peninsula collapses into the Sivash sea by 6ft, the sea of Azov rises 3ft and becomes full of tidal shock-waves as the surplus water exits from it into the Black sea, via the Kerch strait drowning the Kerch and Tamman Peninsula with a 3 ft. tidal wave. The Don flowed in to the Sivash sea and over the former Perekop Peninsula (or Periskop peninsula) into the Black Sea. The Kerch Strait is choked with debris and wreckage. 1,145 died, 5,328 were injected, 7,500 went missing and 12,000 were unhoused in the event! Several smaller meteors hit elsewhere. Most were small and hit hit rural parts of Kamchatka, the Chukchi Sea and the Bering Sea; whilst a larger one hit the far north of Alaska. 4 medium sized ones also hit Las Vegas, Kharkov, Bangui and Yokohama, killing about 50 and wounding a few dozen more in each the events.

An asteroid that exploded over Siberia, injuring more than 500 and damaging 30 buildings in 4 cities in Irkutsk Oblast including Irkutsk itself in 2149.
Chile’s mining industry took off once more.
Chile’s mining industry took off once more, with Santiago, Chillán and Concepción, ushering in an economic boom in the late 2170's that would be sustained through the Chile-Argentina Border War of 2179. Metal ore and leather exports to the former USA, S. Africa, Japan, New Zealand, Colombia, Peru and France also allowed it to grow well in to the 2220s.
Scotland would finally regain its independence in 2197 with much political help from Wales, Ireland, Nauru, Nepal, Bhutan, Estonia, Peru, Japan, Chile, S. Africa, Jordan and East Timor! They would join abortive Dutch, Belgian, Peruvian, Swedish and French plans to terraform Mars prior to formal colonization.
Siberia and the Russian Far East also went to war from 2202 to 2208 over various issues and it soon became a stalemate. The nations of the region panicked as both Mongolia and Taiwan started backing Siberia, and then China started backing Russia.
China stationed loads of nukes in the Amur Oblast, which was already infested with Russian ones. Russia dropped a 15kt nuke on Taipei and Bangkok in 2207, killing thousands. Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand and Tanzania all complained to the UN, who officially condemned the nukings.
A new crisis point in China.
Japan was an rural and insular nation off the rapidly flooding east coast of Asia that was being subverted by Chinese (Taiwanese) and pseudo-Japanese nationalists in the 2210's. They ruled with an iron fist from 2220 to 2230, but in 2230 the Japanese revolted against the Taiwanese stooges with control of much of the Japanese home Islands, and asserted themselves as a nation again, under the name of the Harmonious and Heroic Empire of Japan. During the same period, the emperor was supposedly, but in reality held little power as the Japanese were divided into towns, professions or families, the heads of which held the real power. The Japanese military was very inconsistent and no national army exists. However, the emperor created a small army of 1,200 elite troops taken from many Japanese families, towns and firms during 2021, by offering them money like a mercenary force who are not very effective for the moment. The actual force that the emperor counts on for security is the corporate armies who’s firms were promised advantage if they prove themselves useful.
Military forces begin relief effort for Brazil's flooded northern coastal cities after an unusually strong typhoon hit a 40 mile zone around Recife in the October of 2222. The food riots are quelled within a few weeks when armed riot police deal with the situation, but kill 52 protesters in a Recife gun massacre. Humanitarian aid also came from a resurgent USA, NZ, Siberian SSR, Russian Democratic Republic, France, England, Japan, Hungary, S. Africa, Peru and Germany.
Major pro-democracy riots pummeled Cairo, Hanoi and Beijing. Political unrest was also seen in Madagascar after a notoriously bad harvest in late 2227. Several old Mali tribal conflicts then also erupt over ancestral tribal boundaries in the Chad during the whole of 2228. Japan arks Russia for the return of the Kuril Islands, but is rebuffed and became angry.
After several dozen major floods and typhoons had hit southern China and Taiwan they began to rapidly decay between 2228 and 2235. C.P.C. and corporate corruption was also beginning to grow in Shanghai to everyone's disgust. Food Riots had occurred some towns and villages of the Ngawa Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in the March and May of 2230.
The Fist Chinese Civil War was spawned, in part, by both the political unrest brought on by 2 years of rising sea levels and the brutal crackdown following the pro-democracy Wuhan Car Factory Massacre of 2230. The workers of the Harbin satellite Ion-drive works soon formed the Harbin Soviet Republic. The military of China fractured, with two of the chief generals turning against the Politburo of the pro-Hu Jintao C.P.C's Beijing-Shanghai factional government. While the parties in the war were globally viewed as either Chinese Nationalist, Islamist, Pro-Democratic, Tibetan Nationalist, Maoist and Reformed Chinese Communist; important changes only came to the military and political balance of power when the Republic of China (Taiwan) got officially involved in the hostilities after the Chinese Blockade of Hong Kong and the invasion the Coastal Fujian Republic took place in the May of 2238. The Harbin SR was a small, anarchic and violently isolationist nation, based around the city of Harbin. The De Jure Government was comprised of the Worker's Council, which is supposed to contain trades union representatives from all over the rebel nation, but contained very few representatives, most of who were Siberian SSR puppets and could not even agree on where individual representation should be allotted to. Cheng Zhao Lie was it's only the Chairman of the Council.
Nearly 20,000,000 were killed immediately in the 15kt nukings of Chengdu and Chongqing by Mouists. Over the years, despite the help from the Philippines and others, another 30 million died due to starvation and continued fighting across the nation and refugees fled in to the ethnically Tibetan western mountains of Sechcswan and up in to Mongolia.
After the first year of hostilities, Chinese C.P.C.'s pro-Hu Jintao factional government accepted a cease-fire with the pro-Taiwanese rebel commanders in coastal Fujian, but the wider world only knew of coastal Fujian as newly created and needed an Autonomous Region. Coastal Fujian continued to actively seek international recognition as an independent nation called the Coastal Fujian Republic. While China maintained the pretense that all was well, the tentative cease-fire with coastal Fujian did not end the hatred that had caused the Civil War, continued with the troubles in the East and South of the nation.
It then chaotically imploded in to the bloody Second Chinese Civil War which started with the 2235 pro-democracy revolution by student and farmers living in Wuhan rebelled against communist party rule. As the only leading world power, the United States had sworn a hard-line against the Chines. When the war broke out in 2235, the US initially did nothing about it and only offered minimal help to the Philippines, Mongolia, Vietnam and Thailand in 2240.
A war divided and devastated the nation the government began to collapse due to factional infighting and ideological paranoia. A mixture of sworn party loyalists, the remaining non-mutinous troops and the more enlightened members of the regional C.P.C. leadership retreated to the recently built, but rather small, strategic bunkers placed the mountains, beside Lake Jingpo, the town of Ürümqi, the city of Chongqing and in a few tactically important places among the Great Hinging Mountains, along Mudanjiang River, the upper reaches of Yellow River, the Fen River and the Wei River.
The Philippines began sending humanitarian aid to Wuhan's rebels in the January of 2241. The Pope and UN Secretary General called for World peace that Christmas and a special Vatican mas and UN summit were held a few days later held. Soon the balance of power in China's civil war has shifted in favor of the pro-Hu Jintao Communists, thanks to the Siberian's and Mongolian's assistance.
The county-level city of Wǔzhǐshān in the south-central part of Hainan Island had also gone rogue in the June of 2242, and had held out successfully against the forces of the C.P.C. and the pro-C.P.C. Hǎikǒu-Wénchāng Republic was formed out of the loyal Hǎikǒu Shì county level city and the loyal Wénchāng Shì county. Most of the south of the Island had formed a loose anti-Chinese confederacy, which would dump China and join Taiwan in the September of 2243 and formally joined up with Taiwan in the March of 2244.
It finally ended in the Gandong based pro-Deng Xiaoping communist party faction's victory at the 2245 battle of Chengdu and the crushing of the Harbin Soviet the next day.
America rearms and then partly breaks up
Nevada, Pensacola, Hyper-California, Little Rock, Aztlan, Killgore and Quebec formally ceded from the remnant USA over taxation and lack of action over Japan's corporate behavior in north east China during 2246.
A 20 year long arms race then starts among the former American nations and the remnant USA. Acapulco became worried over America's break up, rearmed and signed a mutual defence treaty with Panama, Barbados, Jamaica, Portugal, Omsk and Quebec in 2247. It all cane to a head in 2252 with the
Provisionalist Alaska Or Provisional Republic of Alaska is Remnant of the USA that joined the Russian Empire since 2 year Alaskan Civil War broke out in 2250. Alaska was Petitioned Into United States as New Russophone US State. It was soon to see the establishment of a stable and democratic government and democracy
The Kingdom of New England is a quasi-constitutional monarchy led during the war by King Lieum Edwards. The capital of the Kingdom of New England was Boston, Massachusetts. Following the collapse of the United States of America, the New England states and Albany seceded to form the New England Confederation. However, disputes arose very quickly, especially over the capital's location, So Albany was was expelled, after 5 years, in 2052. Since then, Massachusetts and Nova Scotia have dominated the politics of the nation.

Japan runs amok
The racily based Japanese invasion of Sakhalin Island, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam occurred on 14 December 2244, 2245 and 2247 respectively.
Japan, who was more technologically modernized, was aware that was investing heavily in China's rice industry, but still did not show much respect for Chinese laws or customs and was thus banned from doing business in the People's Republic. Both this, and Japan's re-emergent superiority complex and desire for territorial expansion led to the declaration of war in 2258 on the People's Republic of China and Korea soon thereafter. Dalian, Harbin, Pusan, Seoul and Pyongyang were taken quickly and the Japanese war machine spread quickly. The Great Sino-Japanese War would be a major 20 year war fought by Japan in China, Taiwan and Korea. Japan had long desired northern Chinese territory in Manchuria and Korea! The country's rapid industrialization and militarization under the slogan, “Enrich the country, enlighten your mind and strengthen the army”, led to its emergence as a world power eventually culminating in the conquest of a large part of the 50 year Asia-Pacific region. Firms such as Mitsui, Hitachi and Mitsubishi become the mainstay of the imperial economy. The Japanese, now bordering Russian and Alaska in the far north, began to take an interest in Siberia, the Commander Islands, The Aleutians, and Kamchatka.
Japanese forces then used thire hi-tech gadgetry to crush a uprising in Shanghai during 2065. They then used the same stuff to devastate Vietnam's resistance movement in 2068 and to crush both Guam and the Philippines in 2069. Darwin and Jataka fell late the next year, and as with All Japaneses campaigns, victory was insured with in a mater of days.
On the home front many Japanese Buddhists and human-rights activists tried to hold massive anti-war protests, but retribution was swift, leading to the crushing of almost all progressives that were felt too or decadent be weak and liberal, and thus threat to militarism and State-Shintoism, which was being promoted at the time.
An asteroid that exploded over western Russia, injuring more than 2,500 and damaging 58 buildings in 6 cities in Penza Oblast including Penza itself in 2249.
The worst of war lasted between 2258 and 2262. China freed Dalian in the Autumn of 2260 and Pyongyang in the summer of 2262, albeit with Australian, New Zealand and Hyper-Californian help.
A Japanese high energy, space based laser cannon ablated most of the remaining Russian and Chinese nukes off of the Amur Oblast until America shot it down in 2299. any Russian people of the Amur Oblast were heavily hybridized with the Chinese garrison forces by 2299. This was also the year the UN gave up and dissolved it's self in utter despair!
After Japan's defeat in 2324, the Club Anglo-America Powers (UK, Ireland, Malta, the nations of the former USA, Hyper-California, NZ, Australia, Canada, France, Quebec, the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Netherlands, Chile, S. Africa, Singapore and the UAE) occupied the island on Japan for 5 years, Taiwan for 3 and Korea for 2 years. Japan returned to civilian rule in 2329, under a democratic government. the Japanese resigned to their fate and made peace with the Americans. Under the UN peace treaty, Japan renounced Sakhalin Island in exchange for the smaller, but strategically important Kuril Islands. The Great Sino-Japanese war was over, and the nations of the former United States experienced an economic boom that take took the world by surprise as it nurtured life back into the shattered nations of the Pacific and won several lucrative export licences for American burger meat as it did so.
Mexico's government officially erected a peace monument in central Acapulco during 2333 and it became a major tourist traction for hippies, Mongolians, Itlemen, Kurds, Gypsies and Jews.
America, Russia, China, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, NZ, India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Kazachstan, France and Germany all started building small colonies on the Moon and Mars in 2345.
The racist Osh riots occurred when Kyrgyz and Uzbeks throughout early 2346 in the cities of Osh, Samarkand and Uzgen. The immediate cause of the riots was a dispute between an Uzbek nationalist groups and a Kyrgyz nationalist groups brawling over the ownership of now failing farmlands. While official estimates of the death toll range from over 1,300 to more than 1,600, unofficial figures range up to more than 1,700. Peace was finally restored by intervention by Hyper-California, Mongolia, Khalistan and Tibet.
With the effects of the Chad-Libya-Nigeria War being in the north of Chad, and the withdrawal of Libya troops in early 1984 the Chadian army quickly took control of Northern Chad, all be it with Nigerian help.
There was a devastating drought in 2385 and again in 2388 and 2389, the majority of the population flee south into Southern Chad and farther into Cameroon and Nigeria. By 2390 there were only approximately 100,000 people left in northern Chad, mostly around the de facto capital city of Faya-Largeau which has an underground water source.
Mongolians, Chinese and Japanese settlers flocked in to the sparsely populated Sakhalin Island during the 2440s as a oil drilling boom occurred. The "Booming Fouritys" thus referred to a cheap oil and bauxite lead period of robust economic and industrial growth in the United States, Siberia, Japan and, to a lesser extent, several other countries across the world in the decade between 2045 and 2055.
Sugar beet farming became a big business in Heidelberg, Germany, during the 2440s and 2450s.
As organized crime and crime in general rose across the rebuilt NY City during the 2440s and 2450s things inevitably became violent and chaotic. The Italians, Blacks and some Anglos roamed the streets of Brooklyn and the Brox selling weed and shooting any one who they did not like, in particular, the Irish, Belorussians and Chinese. Given the occasional historical enmity between Irish Americans and Italian Americans, it was little wonder it turned in to open warfare. Finally the Irish Americans won by a narrow margin with help from Jewish American bankers. Canada and Quebec then soon scaled down there business interests in the devastated city!
A Jordanian Nano-bot building scientist living in Kenya had made an IQ enhancing one for use on Kenya's brains and had some success when it was tried out for the first time on some female farm workers.
The asteroid that exploded over Siberia, injuring more than 1,000 and damaging 30 buildings in six cities in Omsk Oblast including Omsk it’s self during 2444.
America, Russia, China, Japan, Australia and Germany all start building major joint run colonies on the Moon and a more modest version of it on Mars in 2445.
A massive 7.8 earthquake 6 miles of the coast Hitachi City and was shortly followed by a tilde wave deviated Hitachi City, coastal Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama in late 2475. Various local neo-Samurai warlords, fascist generals, local street gangs and communist revolutionaries fought it out for the next 50 bloody years; until both the Empire of Hokkaido, Empire of Honshū, Shogunate of Shikoku, United Shogunate of Hitachi-Chiba and Empire of Kyushu rose from the ashes of the former nation in 2525. They would still retain a fiscal union, currency union and a common free trade zone, but would otherwise be independent of each other.
On June 4, 2525, the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle volcanic complex enter in eruption. At least 3,500 people were evacuated from nearby areas, while the ash cloud reached within days the cities of Bariloche, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Stanley, Porto Alegre, Cape Town and Auckland forcing airlines to cancel hundreds of international and domestic flights and causing travel chaos across the Southern Hemisphere. Famine stricken North and South Sudan get help from Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Thailand, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Ghana, S. Africa, Nigeria, Uganda and France.
The controversial Chinese and Sino-phobic American video games.

Pro-democracy rallies occered across the world, especially in the Orient, were young intellectuals, coal miners, builders, astrophysicists and peasant farmers had united against the ruling cliques in the May of 2534. The Shan State, Laos, Philippines, Halmahera Republic and Shāndōng all have a minor economic down turn due to high wood and tin prices. The Navajo Republic and Little Rock both start banning violent video games to avoid encouraging teenage violence.
Urban food riots occur in the Luanda, Rajgir City in India’s Nalanda district, Glasgow, Brunswick County in North Carolina, the remains of Manhattan Island, Niamey, western Belgium, Ethiopia, Dakar in Senegal, Timbuktu, Nairobi and in central Iraq in the May of 2537. A hurricane also hit both Kansas and Arkansas in July of that year, causing much damage and flooding. Kansas City's northern suburbs were hit by a tornado that August, killing 16, wounding 80 and de-housing (making homeless) another 2,500 people.
Over time, the price of video game consoles changed due to global Mafia black marketing activities. The official 2538 list of corporate prices was soon made effective. The controversial Chinese Video-game "Project- Yank's Bollocks" was being created by the games console firm Team Shanghai Alice Inc. It depicted a world where Ebola and SARS had killed millions. It had supposedly killed all White Americans, American-Korean shop owners, Asian London corner-shop owners and Black Liberians. As a result both Mexico, Canada, Quebec, Spain, Germany, Mali, Senegal, Guinea, Ireland, Norway, African Americans, the Navajo Republic, France, Iceland, England, Japan, China, Portugal, Quebec, Morocco, Vietnam, Cuba and Scotland all squabbling over various neo-colonial claims in the former states. The Neo-Nazis, Militant-ecologists and neo-hippies were involved in the New England part of the plot and game play from time to time. It was the king of shoot-them-up type games. From then on it became one of the most popular games in the Far East, Russia, Scotland, Serbia, Vietnam and Latin America.
The notoriously Sino-phobic American game "Nuked Japan-burn Shanghai" was a rival Japanese/American game development by the Japan's Games Circle Inc organisation, part of Americas's Amusement Makers Inc. It portrayed a ASB world dominated by Jesuit Catholics, Communist Russians, Taliban operatives, Zionists, militant-ecologists, neo-hippies and neo-Maoists. Democracy had completely failed in Mongolia and Uyghuristan, both of which fallen securely in to the neo-communist Russia's sphere of influence. The remainder of China was given to European powers. Shanghai had become an Anglo-French-Italian Mafia colony and Mao's tomb had been blown up, with him still in it, by the CIA! As a result both S. Korea, Canada, Quebec, N. Korea, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Germany, Taiwan, the Phillopens, Tibet, Australia, NZ, Germany, the USA, France, England, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Vietnam, Peru and Scotland all squabbling over various neo-colonialy claimed zones in the the former state. It was a best seller in the North America, Brazil, Israel, Turkey, Japan, Kuwait, Australia, NZ, Alaska, England and France. They liked both games since they were hard hitting first person shooting, punching and knife trowing game.
A year later a 5 Pilar Film Corp.(Cascadia)\Lazlo TV55 (Western Hungary) series that occurred 1 film for each yearly release. It became the most profitable film series of all-time and it was the first franchise where more than one film grossed $10,000,000 worldwide! A 5th film, titled "Dead Men" involved an undead Chairman Mao conquering Mongolia and Russia's survivor states with the help of Godzilla. They were then defeated in the Battle of Tokio by an undead General Hideki Tojo and King Kong. It was noted that the computer graphics were exceptionally good.
World War 4 cometh!
The many regional and global conflicts would finally spark World War 4 in 2595!
in 2595 public pressure globally grew over declining oil supplies, world wide coastal flooding, food shortages in India, most of the world's peas getting attacked by weevils, catching high profile pedophiles, the collapses of corrupt banks, famine in Africa and growing deserts! Rainfall had also increased on average by 1cm per year in Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Angola and Wiltshire, but fallen by 2cm in Iran, California, Kenya, Mali and Mauritania.
It all came to a head that autumn when the Horn of Africa, briefly became the focus of world conflict as Somalia clashed with Ethiopia over its ethnic Ogaden region. As the EU, Egypt and Russia armed Ethiopia, Somalia called for help from their allies in Saudi Arabia. Kurdistan was also looking for help, but the U.S.A. was to busy fighting drug lords in Colombia. Nonetheless aid and arms did arrive from China, so Kurdistan formally entered their block. In the wake of it, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) held emergency summits and planned for the worse. The economic and political fallout was horrific. Oil, gas, diamond, iron, copper, cassava, wheat and cowpea prices skyrocketed!
The Cubans, N. Koreans and Chinese began to feed arms to the many pseudo-communist criminal gangs of the USA, Iraq, Turkey, Russia, Colombia Taiwan and S. Korea.
Russia, China, Japan, America, England, Ethiopia, Bavaria, North Sudan, Israel, Palestine, Ethiopia, Somalia, Egypt, Azawad, Nigeria, Cuba, Quebec and Germany all acted rather stupidly and clashed violently with each other, leading 3 years later, to World War 3.
A second limited nuclear war took place in early 2595, destroying many military and political sites in Russia, America, India, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, South Korea, and China, along with a few military bases in Argentina, Germany, Canada, England, Pakistan, Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Canada, Thailand, Australia, Brazil, Vietnam, the Philippines, Kazakhstan, Egypt and Scotland. This was followed by a world wide 12 year conventional war.
A Chinese high energy, space based laser cannon ablated most of the remaining ice and snow off of the Antarctic and Greenland until America shot it down in the May of 2599.
A third and more destructive atomic war devastates the USA, China, Russia, Germany, Poland, France, the UK, India, Pakistan, Cuba, Mexico, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the Korean Peninsula, Australia, Turkey, Syria, Venezuela, Canada, Italy, Spain and S. Africa in the September of 2599.
The climate then imploded as the sky became very dark and the land became arid!
The climate then imploded and became very dark and arid between 2600 and 2625.
A near global dark age occurred for 100 years as the early human survivors lived in a cold hell produced by an atmospheric overcast and modest formation of the polar ice sheets for 200 years. Most nations collapsed rapidly in the ensuing chaos and civilization ended in much of the world. Humans would start the road to recovery as new clans formed outside the few surviving city states after 10 years of hard toil, starvation and cholora had passed.
Humanity re-emerged as clans after 10 years which became tribes after 50 years. The first new city states formed after 100 years, many city states would go on to either merge or expand after 200 years, small nations then formed after 500 years, grew or merged after 800 years and major powers finally formed after 1,000 years!
America, China, Europe, India, Canada and Russia were almost destroyed and many other nations fell in the economic, meteorological and social aftermath. Many parts of the world would still be covered in minor local tribesmen and medieval village folk for several centuries as humanity was so badly hit.
Finally, 5 meteorites hit the Sahara Desert in 2635 and caused a second, but milder, dip in global temperature for 50 years.
A massive cyclone caused much flooding in the nations of Brittany, Cornwall (Kernow), the Devonian Republic, Wales, Powys-Shropshire, Richmondshire, Matlockshire, Scunthorpeshire, the Belgian Confederacy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Munster in the Neo-Hanseatic League and Denmark proper in 2727, killing 2 Dutch people, 1 Belgian, 1 Devonian, 2 Danes, 1 Cornwallian, 1 Munster Neo-Hasiatic and 1 Scuntorpeite as it did so.
Recovery and revival after the wars.
Norway explored southern Greenland in 3344 with some success.
The ATL neutral "Yangtze River Buffer Zone" was set up and declared neutral in 3447 after the 6 year long 5th inter-Chinese provincial war. It was run by aboard that represented all the feuding Chinese factions.
The nations of West Africa had to tackle a 10 year drought between 3457 and 3467 that killed 10,000,000 (12% of all of thire people), but much help came from the nations of Europe and North Africa.
Liberia, Sierra Leone and Côte d'Ivoire began falling apart fast due to long held religious, ethnic, tribal and/or political differences that are to difficult to resolve as of date. Refugees recently fled to Guinée forestière (Forested Guinea) which is a forested mountainous region in southeastern Guinea, extending into northeastern Sierra Leone. It is also one of the few shelters a large number of refugees from the 4th Sierra Leone Civil War, the 7th Liberian Civil War, 5th Nigerian Civil War and the 3rd Côte d'Ivoire Civil War. Nzérékoré is the largest city and stuffed full of homeless and malnourished refugees. The civil wars started in 3530 and still goes on.
A rabies plague killed most Siberian canines in 3535. A swine flue outbreak killed many on Vietnam and an Ebola outbreak killed many in both the Gambia and Liberia during 3575.
The nations of the former USA, France, Algeria, Chile, China, Taiwan and Japan have a dynamic market-oriented economy which are now characterized by a high level of foreign trade, especially with each other since 3630.
The corporate rivalry between American oil producing states start getting over competitive and sabotage struck in the 3630s and 3640s.
During the 3650's, both Little Rock and Chile gained a reputation as a role model for economic reform was strengthened when the democratic government was elected for the first time. They expanded and deepened the recently established economic reforms.
Chile had the 7th largest economy in the world by 3789. Little Rock and Kyushu were in a joint 10th place. The East Texas Oil Field are still a large oil and gas field is once more heavily drilled outside downtown Kilgore with more than 1,000 active wells clustered in a tight area around it, making it the densest oil development in the world once again! It was an awesome and mighty place to be in!
Today, Lisbon Central it is one of the largest airports in the northern hemisphere. Though air traffic is nearly almost limited to civil and corporate transports, the Airport has become quite frequented since 3789, especially due to Norwegian oil and Dutch gas production recommencing. Portugal has had a contentious relationship with the successor state in neighbor Spain since they have gone to war 6 times since it's creation in Medieval times.
The top 12 economy in 3789 Are-
- Empire of Honshū
- The Heavenly and Harmonious City of Beijing
- Hegemony of Wuhan and Hegemony of Guangdong jointly
- Kingdom of Riyadh
- Kingdom of Sichuan
- Empire of Hokkaido
- Republic of Chile
- Shogunate of Shikoku and United Shogunate of Hitachi-Chiba jointly
- United Kingdom of Swaziland, Zululand and Lesotho
- Republic of Little Rock and Empire of Kyushu jointly.
- Multicultural Republic of Nashville and Republic of Cape Province jointly.
- Kingdom of Denmark and Neo-Hanseatic Confederation jointly
1,500 years have passed, the world is reborn and the environment has gone back to normal. Natural resources have over the years replenished to OTL 2000 levels and and technology is at 2010 levels.
