Brave New World (Map Game) is an Active Map Game.

The year is 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic has become nothing more than a mild flu, no different than any other diseases. However, the pandemic didn’t brought humanity together. It revealed the greed, the injustices and the prejudices that existed in our society. A brand-new cold war has emerged between the Americans and the Chinese, with the United States tightening its grip over the UK and Australia, causing the Europeans to become wary of the reliability of the USA. New independence movements are gaining more and more momentum, with climate change beginning to cause severe issues to humankind. Fractures of alliances are emerging, and with other threats from outside, will it be a “when” or “if” before the clock strikes midnight?

If you are looking for a chaotic map game, then Brave New World is for you. This map game is going to be radically different than Onwards and Our Darkest Secrets, as this map game will contain massive map twists, extremists rising to power, rebellions, extinctions etc. Can you survive the massive challenges that you will be facing?

Playable Countries

Due to the nature of this map game, the United States, Russia and China are all off-bounds unless you have participated in either Onwards, The World State or Our Darkest Secrets. The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and India are off-bounds if you have not played in any map games, and will have a higher chance of being denied if you apply to play for them without any map-game experience in 2021.

Rules

  1. All turns will be published on Saturday, but if not enough players have submitted their turns yet, I will delay it to Tuesday. Then, the game will continue on as normal.
  2. To apply, you can either message me on Discord (Awesome#0003), Message me on the Message Wall (RobloxPinewood), or just type in the comments. The code for joining is "A New [COUNTRY]".
  3. Adding lore is required for all players when roleplaying a country. I have designed a format for how a turn should ideally look like, though you don't need to copy it precisely.
  4. Missing your turn for three weeks will cause your country to become an NPC. If you miss your turn for three more weeks, you will lose your nation completely.
  5. Switching nations is not allowed on the game for no reason. If your country gets annexed by another country (which I highly doubt will happen), you are out of this game for three in-game years before you can join as a new nation.
  6. Do not do godmodding. Godmodding is the act of deciding results of actions without asking the other players/mods. Any instance of this will result in a warning, as well as having that section of the turn deleted. If done five times, you will be banned from the game.
  7. Do not roleplay climate events or extraterristial incidents. Those are uncontrollable for humans, and you will be warned if you create any climate events. Don't worry, I will personally script many climate disasters, and you are obivously allowed to react to it and combat it, though.
  8. Do not randomly destroy your country. In other words, do not roleplay stuff as unleashing superviruses on yourself, launching 7000 nukes or roleplay an asteroid flying towards Earth.
  9. While you are generally allowed to decide what happens during wartime, the moderators will be influncing your moves. Do not be surprised if an AI opposition puts up a tough fight.
  10. Do not make unrealistic advances e.g. Russia pushing from Moscow to Berlin in one day. You will be banned for two turns if you do so.
  11. Technological advancement is encourged, as it will give you a higher chance of recieving better mod events. However, please be realistic in advancements, and do not attempt to go from 2G cellphones to Quantum Computing in one year.
  12. Similarly, Space colonization is encourged as well, but you must have the technology to do so. Remember to keep it step by step.
  13. Moderators are not allowed to do self-modding. Say a moderator is Russia, and they invade Belarus, and need a mod response for the Battle of Minsk. They are not allowed to give the mod response to themselves. Same goes for being invaded.
  14. Nuclear, biological or chemical weapons are allowed in the game, but you obivously have to craft them first, and do be aware that if you do so, let's just say the Mods will be scripting to yeet your country.
  15. You are only allowed to be playing as a nation. Rebel groups are allowed, but do be aware I won't be too kind to you when writing events.
  16. You are not allowed to invade a country for no reason. This is Brave New World, not some sort of Rise of Nations style game on Roblox.
  17. The game is scheduled to last for 10 years, however I will extend it to as long as possible if there is enough support and activity for it.
  18. Brave New World will automatically end if a nuclear war occurs, failure to prevent an asteroid impact (Trust me, there will be one if we go far enough), or any other world-ending disasters. The game will also end if we decide to not continue the game after 10 in-game years (i.e. 10 Weeks).
  19. Once in a while, there will be "timed events". This is when a potentially game-ending event occur, like an asteroid impact or a deadly virus. Humans will have to a limited time to respond to it effectively, and if the players fail miserably or just don't do anything about it, the game will end due to the timed event rendering humanity extinct.
  20. Enjoy the game!

Moderators

Anyone with prior map game experience can apply. No limit of how many moderators needed.

Game Turns

2022

Note: None of the actions are final. This game hasn't even started yet, and the Gamemaster (Me) can change events.

The COVID-19 Pandemic is “over”, in the sense that most countries just acknowledge that the virus exists, and has ended measures to curb it. COVID-19 has become very infective, and resistant to alcohol and other cleaning products. However, it has become less deadly, with a mortality rate of just 0.5%. In essence, humanity has stumbled onto another Spanish Flu situation. Despite this, it is still spreading in places like India and Nigeria, with many governments not doing anything about it. The two countries are becoming poorer by the day, and who knows when will India and Nigeria collapse.

The 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing has ended in disaster for Chinese diplomacy, with the whole of NATO, EU, Five Eyes and Japan all boycotting the Olympics. This further exacerbated the tensions between China and the West, particularly the United States. There has been an increased nationalism in China, and some even advocated to declare war on America while America remains weak inside.

The United States of America has become even more divided, with Texit and Calexit being thrown around once again. Democrats and Republicans are now more divided than ever, with a part of the Republicans splitting off to form the American National Party, led by Mike Pompeo. Joe Biden's popularity is at an all-time low, due to him not taking a strong enough stance on China for some, and too radical for others.

Meanwhile, Russia is beginning to suffer serious issues with inequality and even more corruption, with Alexei Navalny’s movement gaining more and more momentum by the day. He is reportedly in poor health due to the hunger strikes he has been on, but his devotion to take down Putin is inspiring many rebel leaders. Another wave of protests began to emerge, and with increasing levels of crackdown, Putin's regime is looking closer to bending.

After a massive heatwave swept across southern Scandinavia, causing dozens of heatstroke’s and deaths, Greta Thunberg led a massive student strike in Malmo, which gained traction across Scandinavia, and soon, schools are stopped for weeks due to low attendances. The movement spread across the entire world, causing another new wave of protests. This has forced Sweden's hand to ban cars at the city centre, but will this be enough to initiate a climate revolution?

China has become even more assertive of their position, with them tightening their grip on the internet and their two SARs. The Hong Kong citizens living in HKSAR would not stand for this, and a massive wave of protests breaks out once again. With Carrie Lam re-elected, the protests has hit to heights never seen before in 2019. People are being killed by the protesters and by the police, and propaganda by both sides is tearing the city apart more than it has ever been in 2019. The National Security Law is basically rendered useless, and the police are resorting to more violent measures. What will the Chinese do about it in Round 2?

Across all of Europe, separatist movements have been picking up momentum, especially the one in Catalonia. A massive strike in March has gone massively wrong, which ended in the Spanish riot police brutally cracking down on the protesters, while causing massive bloodshed, and infuriating the remaining Catalans. To make matters even worse, the La Palma volcano eruption in September 2021 has released so much toxic gases into the atmosphere, that it rendered the western part of the Canary Islands temporary uninhabitable and unsuitable for tourism. This, in turn, caused an economic slump in Spain. The country seems to be on the verge of collapse.

Due to massive tensions in the Tigray region, Sudan invaded the area in early 2022, sparking international condemnation. With both sides suffering high casualties, living standards for both countries have slipped massively. Ethiopia in particular is on the verge of complete collapse, while Sudan is becoming increasingly tyrannical. A UN report towards the waning days of 2021 revealed the tyranny the Sudanese people are suffering, which caused massive international sanctions.

Further up north in Africa, long-standing tensions between Algeria and Morocco caused the two nations to go to war against each other. Morocco made some advances, but were stopped in their tracks by the massive deserts and hills. Morocco also quit the Arab League as a result, which further exacerbated the tension in North Africa. Tunisia and Libya have both pledged support for Algeria, and the Arab League has banned all trade made for Morocco, and has Moroccans from entering their territory. Furthermore, Moroccan airlines are banned from using the Arab League's airspace.

The United Kingdom, meanwhile, is suffering from massive supply shortages, with people becoming swayed to extremism. Many Britons want the UK to walk on their own, and not rely on the United States for supplies. This has caused massive social tension between the Tory and the Labour supporters, and with the supply crisis, Scotland and Wales are once again screaming for freedom from the English. Worse still, a series of poor decisions made by Boris Johnson has caused protests never seen before in the UK. The protests to remove Boris Johnson from power has turned violent, and a picture of Trafalgar Square being riddles with Molotov cocktails and smoke has been compared to that picture of a burning Independence Square in Kiev during Euromaidan in 2014.

The Middle East has erupted into chaos once again, as Israel, under their nationalist leader Naftali Bennett, launched a full-scale invasion into Palestine, shelling both sides to oblivion. This caused a mass mobilization in Jordan and Egypt, with rocket artillery pointed straight at Haifa and Tel Aviv. Up north, Lebanon has erupted into civil war due to the hyperinflation, with the intervention of Syria and Israel. Turkey meanwhile, has been sending divisions of tanks to their southern borders. They are seemingly getting closer and closer to invading both Syria and Iraq, and who knows what will happen to Kurdistan and the people living there.

All across the world, a massive wave of protests have started, all on different reasons: German Nationalists are protesting in Saxony, claiming that they "can bring Germany to glory"; Japanese Nationalists as well have began to protest, calling for the removal of the new Prime Minister; another wave of the Yellow Vests movement began as the days of Macron's first term in office begin to reach the limelight, and not to mention the mass protests in America, Britain, Australia, Russia, India and even China. The whole world order that the United States have built, one based on peace, democracy and prosperity, is collapsing rapidly. Will the protesters get what they want? Or will the government crack down on the protesters? You decide.

American flag.png United States of America

  • Government: The United States is a Federal Presidential Constitutional Republic, with a bicameral legislature, the Senate and the House of Representatives.
    • President: Joseph "Joe" Biden
    • Legislature: The Congress
      • Ruling Party/The Majority: None
  • Ideology: Capitalist Democracy
  • Capital City: Washington D.C.

  • Economy: The United States' economy, by 2022, is a highly developed free-market economy. It is the largest economy in the world with a GDP of over 22 Trillion USD. Citizens live relatively comfortable lives, however the wealth inequality is some of the worst in the entire developed world.
    • GDP (PPP): $68,309 USD
  • Wars and Conflicts: The United States is currently not engaging directly in any wars.
  • Internal Affairs:
    • Mass Anti-Racism Protests - Despite the fact that Black Lives Matter happened in 2020, the United States is still suffering from racial divide, and it makes us look like barbarians compared to the UK. As a result, a new round of anti-racism protests eurpted in early 2022, after yet another African-American murder by the police, this time in Denver.
    • Increase in mass shootings - Due to our overly relaxed gun laws, there has been a total of 23 mass shootings across the United States, killing over 500 people. This is deemed unacceptable by the President, and as a result, Biden is laying down the pen to sign a new gun law as soon as possible.
  • International Affairs: State your reaction or stance on what happens in other nations.
    • British Mass Protests - We would express our support for the British government, and call the protesters rioters and criminals.

ChinaFlag.jpg People's Republic of China

  • National Ideology: Socialist
  • Government: The People's Republic of China is a unitary one-party socialist republic ruled by the Paramount Leader of China. It is governed by the Communist Party of China. All branches of government are mainly controlled by the CPC, as well as much of the information and public knowledge.
    • President: Xi Jinping
    • Premier: Li Keqiang
    • Ruling Party: Communist Party of China
  • Capital City: Beijing
    • Major Cities:
      • Shanghai
      • Hong Kong
      • Shenzhen
      • Chongqing
      • Nanjing
  • Population: 1.411 Billion
    • Major Ethnicities:
      • Han
      • Zhuang
      • Hui
      • Manchu
    • Major Religion:
      • Folk Religion
      • Buddhism
      • Taoism
      • Christianity
      • Islam
  • Economy: The People's Republic of China has the largest GDP(PPP) in the world. A massive production capacity, along with growing international influence and increasing market liberalization, have allowed China to continue to see economic rise.
    • Currency: Chinese Renminbi
    • GDP(PPP): 28.7 Trillion USD
    • HDI: 0.773 (High)
  • Wars and Conflicts: There are no wars involving China at this time, only potential rumors.
  • Internal Affairs:
    • Reforms: Xi Jinping has enacted several reforms over the past few months, banning all Anti-China rhetoric within the country, enacting harsher laws on Hong Kong and Xinjiang, and cracking down excessively on the private markets. Many within the Politburo are very close to condemning Xi, but for fear of attack, do not. [SECRET] A plan is come up with to either overthrow the Chinese Government, or to assassinator Xi Jinping and other leaders. Many rebel groups receive word of the plan, and call it Operation Zedong, in the memory of China's cruelest tyrant. Heavy debate is held between several rebel groups, discussing what is best for China. [SECRET]
    • Killing Protestors: In several public demonstrations across the country, police are using lethal methods to quell protestors, not seen since Tiananmen Square in 1989. President Jinping calls these actions "necessary for the safety of the Chinese people, and to keep order and peace, need to happen." Tensions between protestors/citizens and the government are reaching a boiling point, and an overthrow of China will likely happen soon. The death toll from the countrywide protests reach 10,000 within a few weeks.
  • International Affairs:
    • President Jinping directs a message towards President Biden, saying "Your country is failing, your infrastructure is poorly developed, and you are incompetent as a President. We Chinese will rise up, and overcome this American Tyranny. This world will be dominated by your interests no longer, and instead Asia will rule, as it rightfully should." Many interpret this messaging as similar to Emperor Hirohito with Japan in WW2, possibly signaling radical uprising within the country.

Flag of UK.png United Kingdom:

  • Government: Unitary Liberal Parliamentary Monarchy
    • Monarch: Queen Elizbeth II
    • Prime Minister: Rishi Sunak (C)
    • Parliamentary Majority: Conservative and Unionist Party (centre-right)
    • Major Opposition: Labour Party (centre-left)
    • Capital City: London
  • Population: Increase 68,775,003
  • Economy:
    • GDP (PPP): Increase $3.761 trillion
    • GDP per capita (PPP): Increase $46,682
  • Home Affairs:
    • Leadership Crisis: Due to the worsening political crisis in the UK, Boris Johnson is forced to resign by a backbencher rebellion, leading to Rishi Sunak being appointed Britain's first Prime Minister of Indian descent. In scenes of great political irony, Sunak's ascension is met with cheers from the centre and the right, and racial abuse from the left. The Cabinet is reshuffled with many "soft" and ineffectual Tories replaced by more liberal and conservative ministers.
    • Act of Union 2022: Taking advantage of the Conservative party's large majority and the public's worry about Scottish and Welsh separatism, including amongst unionist Scots and Welsh, the Act of Union 2022 is passed, eliminating all unenumerated powers from Scotland and Wales' list of devolved powers, but increasing the number of enumerated powers to compensate. Crucially, the Act of Union concretely affirms Scotland and Wales' place as constituent nations of the United Kingdom, united in perpetuity. The Act also requires that any referendum on Scottish or Welsh independence must be approved by the central government, and must be conducted throughout the United Kingdom, not merely in the constituent nation concerned, as the independence of any one nation will affect the people of the whole United Kingdom. The Act of Union effectively crushes the Scottish independence movement in its tracks, ending most support for the SNP as voters realise independence will never be achieved.
    • Supply Shortage: Due to the ongoing supply shortage, particularly of fuel, the government imposes temporary fuel rationing, limiting the amount of fuel that can be purchased by individuals and corporations.
    • Rioting: To quell rioting in London and other major cities, many local governments implement 10pm curfews and protest exclusion zones. In the case of London, the Home Office directs the Metropolitan Police to protect British cultural heritage sites from destruction or damage, such as Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square.
    • Environment: The government firmly rejects the violent and disruptive actions of the activist Greta Thunberg, and puts forward an ambitious and unique plan to tackle environmental degradation, refusing to use the term climate change. This plan includes existing policy directions such as phasing out petrol cars and diesel trucks by 2030 and transitioning towards renewable energy production, as well as new policies stemming from the traditional conservationist wing of the party such as more intense reforestation programmes making use of drone-planters, larger and more national parks, and some of Britain's first marine protected waters for the purpose of allowing fish stock to recuperate and sea floor life to flourish. Further multilateral actions on ocean protection occur as well (see below).
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • North Sea Cap and Trade Fishing Scheme (NSCTFS): The Foreign Office and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs wishes to open negotiations with Norway and the EU to implement a Cap and Trade agreement for fishing in the North Sea. This scheme is expected to significantly cut down on the serious waste and environmental degradation that occurs under the EU's current Common Fisheries Policy of quotas. [Mod Response]
      • Mod Response: Norway would accept the treaty. The European Union also accepts the treaty, as both of them want to protect the North Sea.
  • Defence Affairs:
    • Cyber Defence: In light of the increasing threat of cyber warfare in the 21st century, GCHQ and the Armed Forces are instructed to work together towards a national cyber defence plan. Part of this plan involves re-evaluating the entirety of British infrastructure and sponsoring private cybersecurity evaluations of critical British industries such as banking and internet service provision.
    • Experimental Technology: [Secret] Work continues on developing integrated head-up displays for deployment in helmets, aircraft, and battle-worthy goggles and contact lenses. Work on developing microdrones is also accelerated. [/Secret]

Other bonds are giving to groups developing more efficient air conditioning and researching the production of hydrogen.

2023

In a shocking twist of fate, Boris Johnson is assassinated by Labour extremists. The incident caused Carrie Symonds, Boris’ wife to take revenge on the Labour Party by assassinating a prominent Labour MP. This further deepened the rift between the Tories and the Labourers, and extremism is starting to creep into British society as well. The British supply crisis is improving, but not enough to prevent a shortage in the supermarkets. This has resulted in more riots across the UK, with cities like Liverpool and Newcastle now feeling the effects as well.

To further add to British troubles, due to Sunak publicly denouncing Thunberg, a Tory extremist decided to finish her off. They planted a bomb right beneath the stand where Thunberg is making a speech in Bristol, and it was detonated, killing over 20 people, but not Thunberg herself, who is in critical condition. The incident caused a massive breakdown in relations between the UK and the Nordic States, all blaming the extremist movements ongoing. The UK finds itself more isolated than ever.

Extremism isn’t just plaguing the UK either. The Nigerian terrorist group, Boko Haram, launched a terrorist attack in the city center of Lagos, killing over 100 people on one of Lagos’ busiest streets. They also kidnapped dozens of people, causing chaos in Nigeria and beyond. Elsewhere, Poland became a totalitarian dictatorship after a rigged election, and subsequently got kicked out of the EU and NATO. This Poland wants to return to the good old days of the PLC, but will Russia or America stop them before they can?

Algeria, with support from Saudi Arabia, punched the Moroccans back to Fez, while committing rape and torture of Moroccan soldiers, some even civilians. This drew the wrath of NATO, and as a result, Algeria suffered massive sanctions from the Western community. Despite this, both sides still refuse to surrender, with Algiers and Casablanca being bombed to the point of extinction. SADR, seeing this chance, launches a full blown assault on the Moroccan positions, and it has become a War of the Deserts.

Belarus finally suffered a revolution, with Alexander Lukashenko fleeing to Russia for asylum. However, the revolution went wrong, and Lukashenko’s loyalists rose up against the new government. Belarus plunges into civil war, with Ukraine and Lithuania supporting the rebels. As Russia’s buffer against NATO, surely Russia would do something about it. However, the release of Alexei Navalny in late 2023 has been making Russia uneasy and paranoid of another potential uprising.

North Korea has launched another nuke as another missile test. However, North Korea miscalculated the angle of the missile, and worse still, they shot it at the wrong direction, resulting in the missile landing at a hillside near Osaka instead, killing over 1000 people as it triggered a landslide and the ensuing radiation. Japan, unsurprisingly saw it as an act of war, and as a result, both South Korea and Japan declares war on North Korea. The United States are also considering joining in the war, if China don’t intervene that is…

Due to political instability in China, as well as their shooting of the protesters, not to mention China’s repeated “education” of Xinjiang Muslims, both Xinjiang and Tibet rise up against China, using guerilla tactics and the terrain to their advantage. India has also launched an assualt on the Chinese positions, in order to secure their water supply. There has been rumors of a potential revolution in China, but we’ll soon see if those rumors are just rumors or are they real or not. Regardless, that makes them unlikely to intervene in Korea.

With Joe Biden’s popularity at an all-time low, Republican extremists began to chant #Trump2024, with Donald Trump and the even more far-right Mike Pompeo both announcing their candidacy. The Democrats and the Republicans both found themselves rioting in big cities, with the gun law being stuck at the approval phase. Dozens of people are dying every day just for speaking out, and that has caused major concerns for countries who allows people to hold weapons, like Switzerland. However, the Swiss government assures the global community that they are not going to repeal their law of having guns in their home.

In Brazil, extreme wealth inequality has caused the rise of a socialist movement, all screaming to seize the property of the rich, and improve the conditions of the workers. This soon turned into riots, with wealthy estates being the prime target of vandalism and destruction. Wealthy people are now fleeing Brazil for places like Argentina and Uruguay, causing a refugee crisis. Jair Bolsonaro hasn't resigned as the President yet, but his time might be coming to an end.

South America hasn’t had a good year in general, as Venezuela finally collapsed under hyperinflation and totalitarianism, with Guaido’s forces rising up to face off Maduro’s army in Caracas. Colombia seized this opportunity, and invaded from the west as well. Chile meanwhile, suffered an magnitude 8 earthquake that rocked Santiago, killing dozens of people, though thankfully only caused minor damage thanks to Chile’s riches.

To end things on a good note, 6G internet has become a reality, with the first ultra-thin cellphones, no thicker than a few millimeters, being introduced by Samsung. Hyperloops are also becoming a reality, with the first of them being implemented in California and Vancouver. Both of these innovations are sure to improve humanity in the near future, but will humanity survive long enough to see these technologies be in wider circulation? You decide.

  • Government: Liberal Parliamentary Monarchy
    • Monarch: Queen Elizbeth II
    • Prime Minister: Rishi Sunak (C)
    • Parliamentary Majority: Conservative and Unionist Party (centre-right)
    • Major Opposition: Labour Party (centre-left)
    • Capital City: London
  • Population: 69,664,992
  • Economy:
    • GDP (PPP): Increase $3.997 trillion
    • GDP per capita (PPP): Increase $46,693
  • Home Affairs:
    • Assassination of Boris Johnson: As a result of the shocking assassination of Boris Johnson by Labour extremists, support for the Labour Party hits rock bottom. This is particularly exacerbated by Labour leader Keir Starmer's lack of serious action against his party's extremists. As a result, a significant portion of the party's liberal centre defects to the Liberal Democrats, who rename themselves the Liberal Party after some of their own defect to the Labour Party out of a commitment to socialism. This reduces the Labour Party's standing in Parliament significantly. Meanwhile, Carrier Symonds is arrested and sentenced to prison for her crimes, same as the Labour extremists.
    • Attempted Assassination of Greta Thunberg: The attempted assassination of Greta Thunberg is deeply unfortunate, not least because of the government's own ambitious plan to tackle environmental degradation. The guilty suspects are found and imprisoned. Any Conservative Party members sympathetic to the attempt are found and ejected from the Party, including one sitting member of Parliament whose seat is filled with a by-election. The standing of the Conservative Party is reduced somewhat, but recovers thanks to the decisive action of the Party in dealing with extremism.
    • Riots & Supply Crisis: Further curfews are imposed on more cities to prevent rioting, with the government considering implementing a movement control order. Additional police forces are deployed to the affected cities to quell rioters. The government takes the drastic action to impose rationing on key necessities facing a shortage, in large part because a lot of the supply shortages are self-perpetuating due to panic buying.
    • Hyperloop: Development of a hyperloop system to connect Glasgow to London is underway. This should facilitate British business and tourism.
    • Space: The Shetland Space Centre completes construction, becoming Britain's second spaceport after Space Hub Sutherland. While the Sutherland Spaceport focuses on satellite launches, it is expected that the Shetland Spaceport will not only launch satellites, but will also be the launching ground for a number of non-satellite space corporations.
  • Foreign Affairs:
    • Korean War: In line with Britain's ally the United States, the United Kingdom joins the war against North Korea. 14,000 troops are deployed to the Peninsula in 3 waves.

    • Presidential Election in 2024 - The Democrats have chosen Kamala Harris and Anthony Blinken for the primary elections, while Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo are chosen for the Republicans.

    • Mass Sinophobia - If being polarized wasn't bad enough for our country, some Americans (particularly Californians) resorted to putting the blame on the Chinese for the recent events.

      • Flag of UK.png British Embassy: The UK is grateful for America's offer but respectfully declines as the situation is mostly under control. Instead, it is requested if the United Kingdom may join the North American Free Trade Area (NAFTA) to be renamed the North Atlantic Free Trade Area (NAFTA) to ease Britain's supply crisis.

2024

If 2024 is going to be remembered for anything, it is that this was the year when all hell broke loose. The leader of the Russian Opposition, Alexei Navalny dies along with dozens of other passengers during a routine flight from Kaliningrad to Moscow after being shot down by Belarus. Early evidence suggested that was actually staged, but many Russian citizens have had enough. Navalny’s widow, Yuliya continued her husband’s work, and launched an uprising against Putin in Moscow. The plan went horribly wrong, and a brutal Russian Civil War began between the Russian rebels and Putin. Separatists in Siberia and the Caucasus, along with communist rebels have also picked up a gun.

The declaration of war against North Korea turned out to not have killed as many as anyone had expected. While the North Koreans did attempt to launch nukes against South Korea and Japan, all of them were derailed by Japanese hackers, and only 2 actually hit the territory of both countries, with both in the countryside. As the coalition of South Korea, Japan, USA and UK hit the streets of Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un, and several high-ranking generals of the North Korean Army commits suicide. The first lady, Ri Sol Ju and Kim’s sister Kim Yo Jong was captured alive, along with their children.

It wasn’t just Korea where things got heated up. The dreaded Durand Line, which has split Pashtuns and Balochis for centuries, came to an end when Afghanistan declared war on Pakistan with a surprise attack. This caused a domino effect, with India invading Pakistan from the east, and Iran attacking both Afghanistan and Pakistan. The four countries end up fighting each other. What will China and Turkey do about it though? Will America intervene?

Things are not looking good for Oceania either. A new wave of bushfires has erupted across New South Wales and Victoria, with prolonged droughts killing many species on the island of Tasmania. Scott Morrison’s policy to align with America while denouncing the UK had terrible consequences for the Australian economy, with a mass boycott of Australia’s British Links. Flights between London are outright stopped, with people cutting out the Union Jack on the Aussie Flag. Some extremists even advocated for Australia to join the United State outright to protect themselves from British and Chinese aggression. In New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern survived an assassination attempt, but at the cost of her husband Clarke Gayford. It is unclear who or which group has done it yet. With the growing crisis in Oceania, Australia and New Zealand, along with a few other countries, formed the Atlantic-Pacific Cooperation Pact (APCP). Time will tell if this will work however.

The Middle East has become a giant battlefield, as Turkey launched a full-scale invasion of Syria, which led to their expulsion from NATO. Iraq also launched an offensive against the Kurds, and a border incident with Iran caused a second Iran-Iraq war to break out. Yemen, meanwhile got invaded by Saudi Arabia, with Israel committing genocides against the Lebanese and the Palestinians. To further add to troubles in the Near East, Armenia and Azerbaijan went to war again, with Georgia invading them both as well. These conflicts, along with the South Asian war between Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India are collectively known as “Great Near East War”. With Russia embroiled in a civil war on their own, which side will America, China and the EU stand on?

In Africa, things are only down south as well. South Africa and DR Congo both collapsed from ethnic tensions, with them now fighting a brutal civil war that has already saw thousands dead. In East Africa, Ethiopia invaded both Eritrea and Somalia, with Somaliland finally rising up against Somalia in an armed struggle. The Tigray war has seen nothing but despair for the people of Tigray, who are all but wiped out. Ethiopia are winning the war on all fronts, but at the cost of thousands of Ethiopian lives. Boko Haram has split int Cameroon, Niger and Chad, destroying the land they control. Up north, Morocco has pushed the Algerians right back to the mountains, and they are now committing atrocities against the Algerians in revenge of the Great Fez Massacre.

Even in the Americas, things are going terribly wrong. Brazilian Socialists rose up against Bolsonaro’s regime, with Amazonas and South Brazil seceding against Brazil as well. The Venezuelan Civil War is at a stalemate, with Colombia continuing their slow and deadly advance into Venezuela. Up north, the Cuban Communist Party is overthrown in a revolution, throwing the country into another civil war. Hurricane Ernesto, a Category 5 Hurricane, swept across the Bahamas, Florida and the Deep South, killing dozens and causing billions of US Dollars in damage. With the 2024 US Election heating up, it seems like America is on the verge of losing their entire empire, and the United States could soon become disunited.

Surprisingly enough, Continental Europe is relatively peaceful compared to all the conflicts happening near them. Without the support of Russia, the Belarusian rebels won the civil war thanks to the help of Lithuania and Ukraine. Ukraine meanwhile seized the chance of the chaos in Russia, and retook Donbass and Crimea back. Most of the positives in 2024 happened in Europe as well. France, the lowlands and Germany are discussing an all-out unification of Europe, transforming the EU into one unified state, while Sunak’s popularity is rising due to his investment into infrastructure. The Nordic States also forgave the UK after their Bristol Bombing, as they realized that it was caused by some extremists, not by the UK themselves. Now, there is just one request that Sweden wants to make: Bring Thunberg back to Sweden for further recovery. Will Britain accept? And how will Europe react to the events happening in Eurasia and Africa? You decide.
