(American Epoch is based on George Friedman geopolitical model and his works from Stratfor and GPF (Geopolitical Future).These include The Next 100 Year, Flash Point and The Storm before the Calm.)

The United State remains the dominant global power and centre of the international order, reaching new civilisational hights through technological advancement and emerging American culture in the latter half of the century. Other emerging nations on the Eurasian landmass would challenge the United States resulting in a global war in the mid-century. These rising power include Japan, Turkey and Poland as they displace the declining power such as Russia and China as they fragment politically and socially. At the same time, Atlantic Europe remains powerful but stifling and eventually declining by the mid-century.

New technology emerging in the 21st-century will fundamentally change many nations' social realities and the geopolitical landscape for the coming millennia. These core technology will occur in the 21st century, including Genetics, robotics and Space-based tech, driving the Automation revolution, space industrialisation and genetic revolution beginning in the 2040s and concluding by the 2110s.  The Automation revolution started in the 2040s as robotics begin to replace manual labour. Filling demand labour in first and second-tier nations. Eventually, over the century, robotics would be displacing sophisticated labour task by 2100.  Space industrialisation saw drastic changes in human civilisation, adding a new layer to the geopolitical landscape, from alternative energy sources ( Portable energy satellite ) and data communication technology, producing new weaponry of global reach (hypersonic missile).

The 2020s saw vast amounts of resources and capital both from government funds and private investment into the medical industry. Ushering a new core technology in genetic engineering to emerge, fundamentally changing human society and biology. The core technology cure or treat both life-threatening and long term disease, allowing people to be productive well in there 90s and 100s. It also has expanded human longevity, increasing the life expediency average to 120.

  • Life expectancy: 120-135 years (oldest person 151 years)
  • Human productivity: 90-100 years
  • Most diseases and genetic defects are curable or treatable
  • reached its technological peak by the 2080s
