Africa and the Middle East

african-union-hi.jpg
Flag of the African Federation of Nations​
AFN (African Federation of Nations)
Government: Parliamentary Democratic Federation
Biography:
Africa broke into massive infighting and ethnic cleansing following the Global Nuclear war. During this series of bloody warlord-ism and factionalism the European Commonwealth rose to prominence and invaded Africa. After the Northern African nations failed to halt the invasion and the ECW charged downwards more, African warlords and nations from across Africa decided to put aside their differences until this war was over. The united military effort being focused on the European commonwealth, soon the African nations broke the advance and eventually managed to win the war.

This singular war did one thing that nothing else had managed to do and united Africa. A cultural renaissance kicked off from this event and soon the African Nations formed the African Federation of Nations. The AFN quickly emerged as a beacon of civilization in the world and became the central nation in this new world. They are considered the cultural capital of the world, as they are the single largest exporter of entertainment in the world. Lately however the AFN has been stirring as their military spending has continuously begun to rise throughout the years.

Space League
The AFN was a founding member of the space league, and the Headquarters of the Space League is located in Mombasa. The Space League has ushered in the International Space race and led to the rise of Space Corporations and other interstellar ventures. Although the Space League was late to settle an extra-terrestrial body, the Space league has made other significant breakthroughs and is currently in the process of creating a massive space anchorage that will be open to all nations once complete.

Union of Arabia Flag​
UNA (Union of Arabia)​
Government: Democratic Moral Parliamentary Federation
Biography:
Following the retreat of Occupation of the Middle East by foreign forces many proclaimed it a great victory given to them by allah. When the Nuclear winter rolled in however, this caused a massive and bloody war in the middle east. For Years on end various peoples, tribes, and nations would kill each other almost senselessly. One day, according to legend, two sides agreed to lay down their arms so that they could both celebrate Ramadan. This peace would spread throughout the region and eventually all conflict in the middle east would cease.

All tribes and peoples and nations would meet and would form the Union of Arabia. The Union of Arabia has been nicknamed “The Little UN” as their nation seems to function in a similar manner. The Union of Arabia is primarily tasked with ensuring peace and unity between member-states. They are not above military measures however and have been known to send Peacekeepers to various areas within the UNA to ensure peace between areas within the middle east. Outside of this the UNA is largely pacifistic and Isolationist. Only recently have they opened up to foreign nations for trade, tech and others and have been talking about joining the Space League.

Asia and Oceania


Communist_Party_of_Bhutan_Flag.svg.png

Flag of the SSA
SSA (Socialist States of Asia)
Government: Maoist Proletarian Dictatorship
Biography:
During the Nuclear war Pakistan would launch a surprise first strike against India. The strike would be highly effective at destroying India. Pakistan forces would move into the ruins of India and proclaim a new Empire. The hold on this new empire would be tenuous at best, as the nuclear radiation would make much of India inhospitable. Pakistan would crack down harshly on insurgents leading to more and more bitterness from Indians. This bitterness fueled the Naxalite cause, leading to an explosive growth. When Pakistan tried to crack down on the Naxals the Indian war of independence began. Naxalite forces pushed forward exponentially growing as they liberated villages and towns. When Naxal forces entered Pakistan their army comprised nearly one million fighters.

After the defeat of Pakistan the People's Liberation Front began a cascading series of wars across southeast asia. One by one nations quickly fell to the growing forces of the Naxalites. After successfully taking Singapore they pushed towards the Malaysian Islands. As they pushed towards the islands in makeshift boats and repurposed ships the invaders would be met by stiff resistance from a united Oceania. The defeat was disastrous and halted all offensive plans. As the Naxal forces fell back into the territories they conquered, they struggled with keeping their newly conquered peoples together. At Ho-Chi-Minh City they gathered various representatives from regions across Southeast Asia and formed the Socialist States of Asia.

The Great Leap Forward
Soon after the establishment of the SSA the members of the SSA Council realized that the SSA was woefully behind and in danger of collapsing to their superior rivals the Oceanic Federation. Thus the SSA set into motion a series of plans and initiatives that would advance the SSA at all costs. The policies were brutal at times, and Draconian at best. Eventually the policies would turn the SSA from a collective of slums and shanties into a nation of cutting edge and of towering Hydroponic Farms.

Chinese Expeditionary Forces
To avoid an international incident the SSA was forced to send covert expeditionary forces into China with the hopes that they could reunite the continent before the Oceanic Federation could notice SSA involvement. The Expeditionary forces would fail in their mission and would lose to the UCA Expeditionary Forces. This has been the cause of mass resentment within the SSA Council, and within the people. The consistent failure of the SSA to bring socialism, and the discovery of peaceful Anarcho-Communist Collectives, has led many both in the populace and in the SSA Council to doubt Moaist doctrine. The SSA is desperately working to hold unto their power and will do anything necessary to achieve this.

NZ_flag_design_Silver_Fern_(Black,_White_&_Blue)_by_Kyle_Lockwood.svg.png

Flag of the Oceanic Federation (Originally an idea for the New Zealand Flag that was rejected, members of the OCF Parliament voted this flag in favor of being the new flag of the OCF out of a selection of others)
OCF (Oceanic Federation)​
Government: Democratic Parliamentary Federation
Biography:
While the disunity and chaos of the nuclear war was enough to deal with already, a growing threat in Southeast Asia was starting to draw the attention of the nations surrounding Oceania. When a massive invasionary fleet was seen en route to the Eastern Indies, the nations sent representatives to Sydney Australia and formed the Oceanic Federation. The Oceanic Federation, primarily under the support of the Australian Navy, managed to repel an invasion from the Naxalites leading in a devastating loss for the Naxalite forces. The Oceanic hailed this as a great victory and sense then was locked in a tense relationship with the now Socialist States of Asia. Eventually the Oceanic Federation managed to discover and come into contact with friendly nations across the world fostering good ties with many nations.

The Oceanic Federation however is heavily focused on liberating south east asia from the SSA, and largely has a negative look on most left leaning governments and movements. The Oceanic Federation is also a member of the Space League.


CitizenRepublicofChina.png
Flag of the Chinese Citizen Republic​
CCR (Chinese Citizen Republic)
Government: Citizen Republic
Biography:
When the Nuclear war entered, China was roundly decimated. China suffered the brunt of the nuclear bombardments, leading to massive losses and spending much longer than any other area to rebuild from the devastation. China would resemble what many in the pre-war world imagined a nuclear apocalypse to be like. Tribes would roam the wastelands fighting endless and ceaseless conflicts. Warlords, empires, and kingdoms would rise and fall for years and years on end. Eventually the state of China began to pique international interests and a series of Expeditions into China had been sent. Many nations sent various volunteer forces, and aid to pitch the warring factions in their favor. Ultimately it was the Union of Citizens Alliance that had managed to succeed where all others failed, and managed to help the Suns of the KMT to rise up and reclaim China.

With the help of the Union of Citizens Alliance the Suns of the KMT would form the Chinese Citizen Republic. Their government resembles the Chinese Republic once envisioned by Sun Yat-sen but with the added twist of the Citizen Service program. The UCA was helping their nation rebuild and modernize following the nuclear conflicts when suddenly the CCR would become involved in the ECW-UCA war. Their armies would be locked in stagnant frontlines leading to massive losses. This war led to the explosive growth of pacifist movement within the CCR.

The League for Abolishing the Citizen Service
A political party gaining traction within China, LACS wishes to rewrite the constitution so that the citizen service system is no longer mandatory. The Dreams of the LACS is to reform a different China under their own path. This party has been gaining traction in China, and has received mixed responses in the UCA.

Flag of Japan​
JAP (Japan)
Government: Parliamentary Democracy
Biography:
Japan would be blessed as much of the nuclear fire and bombs would sail overhead and not blow up the country. A growth of refugees from their neighboring regions would lead to a Economic boom. It is because of this boom and Japan’s advancements of technology in a dark age had led Japan to sometimes be nicknamed “New Byzantium”. Japan has been very careful in its foreign affairs, cautiously aligning itself with nations that will help Japan in some way and not get it involved in a conflict. Japan has been a great help in the International Space race, with Kover-samolet Corporation being one of the largest Space corporations on the planet.

Kover-samolet Corporation
The Kover-samolet (The name comes from a Slavic legend about a flying carpet) Corporation is a space exploration company founded by a Russian immigrant. The Corporate Headquarters is located in Tokyo and has led to some of the most impressive innovations in space tech so far. Kover-samolet is currently the leading corporation when it comes to Extra-Terrestrial living, with its Colony of Yanovna (named after the Corporate founder Tsaplina Nyusha Yanovna) an example of the best tech currently sold and in use by the Kover-samolet Corporation

Storm on the Horizon



She could see it in his eyes. The look in his eyes that was clearly judging and sternly looking at the proposal in front of him in doubt and scrutiny. After looking through a handful of pages, no doubt skimming through a few he handed it back to Nadeera.

“You didn't even read the whole thing” She protested

“I don't need to. That's not to say I didn't like it however” The Prime Minister of the Union of Arabia Aaish el-Javed sat back in his chair as he spoke. “It's just that it doesn't meet the reality of the political landscape.” He explained.

“What?” She said as if asking that familiar question would somehow get him to make more sense to her.

“The Parliament would shoot this proposal down before I even finish explaining its purpose.” He said.

“Why would they, you’ve been opening them up to a more open active global stance! Surely you must understand how impor-”

“Nadeera, I'm going to have to cut you off and explain that my current policy towards a more open nation on the geopolitical landscape still has our intentions in mind. At the end of the day I am trying my best to keep our nation disentangled from the entanglement issues that once plagued Arabia. If we get involved in foreign politics to the level that you are proposing in these papers, you’ll be tried and excommunicated from the Union.” He said.

“It's not about the Union, it's about mankind. If we push for this proposal we could potentially end these complex entanglement problems. The Union of Territories Accord is our only hope.” She said.

“Nadeera, you're not understanding what I'm saying. I'm not saying I don't like it. I really do, and between me and you I agree with you. The issue is I have a parliament full of nearly a couple dozen or more representatives and if even a slim majority manage to think i'm leading this government astray they would easily cast a vote of no confidence on me.” He said. “Or worse they could exile me. I know you're not that skilled in the political game given how you are just an MP, but the reality is that politics is not like what you see on t.v. or what you read in Allah knows what books they publish now-a-days. The real life political game is walking on eggshells and hoping that you’ll make it to the otherside without messing everything up.”

“I understand that Aaish, but this is beyond politics. This is about the destiny of humanity. You read the news this morning just like I did so surely you must agree with me that this proposal is the only thing that could save us.” She said.

“Are you talking about the news of that UCA alliance? The league of what is it called?” He asked.

“The League of Nations” she said.

“That's the one” He said.

“This alliance is only going to lead to war with the Terran Alliance. If both of these nations go to war it could be the bloodiest thing we ever seen.” She explained shuddering at the thought.

“Your over thinking it Nadeera. Besides this should be an example as to why Neutrality is so important. If we dont get involved in this we won't suffer from it.” He said.

“So you're telling me you’d be happy with a robber breaking into your next door neighbours house and robbing and killing your neighbours?” She asked accusatory.

“What i'm saying, is that if we get involved and don't let it sort itself out we could end up getting gunned down by that robber. We can call the cops or let them know that we don't approve but trying to stop it is only going to get us killed.” He said. “I'm sorry but I’ll have to cut this conversation here, I have a lot more work I need to do I'm already far behind” He said, waving her away as if she was a buzzing and annoying house-fly.

“At Least think about it” she said.

Aaish sat back and looked at her. “I will… think about it, and what I can do to make this a reality. Just be quiet about it, if news breaks out that I was thinking about this proposal this could look bad on my administration.” He said.

“You have my word, I will not mention anything about this meeting.” She said.

Nadeera left the Prime Ministers office and let out a sigh of exhaustion. That meeting took a toll on her nerves, more so than when she ran for office. She just hoped that her vision of the future could be supported by someone with more power than her.

North Carolina News & Record 2100 News article.

When the 21st Century came to an end and the 22nd Century rolled Humanity would stand on the brink of a new world. Many celebrated the fact that mankind had managed to make it this far, through the world wars, a cold war, and the worst year in Human existence 2020. As the year continued onward the geopolitical landscape would begin to experience significant changes.
The Terran Alliance
In a Meeting in Malta diplomats from the Kingdom of New Heaven, the European Commonwealth, and the Socialist States of Asia would sign a treaty that would form the Terran Alliance. The Terran Alliance upon its creation would be the largest military alliance and only one of its kind in the world.

The League of Nations
The creation of this military pact sent shock waves throughout Earth. The creation of this Alliance rapidly led to the creation of a counter alliance helmed by the UCA called The League of Nations. While borrowing its name from the Peacekeeping organization it would only share that one trait. The UCA would extend an invitation to a whole host of a variety of Nations. By May the League of Nations would consist of the UCA, the USM, the OCF, and the CCR. The NANR has remained reluctant to join the League of Nations instead hoping to seek some kind of peace with the KNH.

Chinese Protests
The LACS movement staged a massive series of protests across China in response to the CCR joining the League of Nations. These protests would halt the traffic in cities such as Hubei and would ultimately prove to be a nuisance. While talks of putting down the protests floated around these talks were halted when news broke that a majority of members within the LACS were Veterans and therefore citizens. China's membership within the League is currently shaky and talks of a new election could potentially rewrite the constitution.

Space League
In response to the formation of these two Alliances and the arms race that was rising as a result of it members of the Space League signed a treaty called the Mombasa Treaty would stipulate that from this moment forward all firearms and Military weaponry would be banned from all colonies and installations. This treaty came as a result of fears of a war breaking out in space leading to many precious installations becoming destroyed in their wake. Every Member-State within the League signed the agreement without a second thought and immediately demanded that Colonial Administrators collect all weapons that violate the Mombasa Treaty. Soon afterwards many other nations not within the Space League formed similar treaties banning the use of Weaponry in space and other installations.

AFN & GSU Scheming
Secretly representatives from the AFN and the GSU met up and mutually agreed to a co-operative offensive pact. Should war break out involving the ECW the AFN and the GSU would both attack in a blitzkrieg style offensive in hopes of retaking their land. Many had also secretly met with members of the League of Nations and had arranged an agreement involving the trade and supply of munitions. Secret resistance cells would also begin to pop up across the ECW in hopes of sewing more chaos.

KNH & NANR Elections
The elections for the NANR and the KNH would result in a number of changes within multiple offices. More importantly however the elections would bring in two important presidents. The KNH would elect Micheal LeVay into office and the NANR would elect Jamal Black. Micheal LeVay ran on a platform of Revanchism wishing to get back the North American continent for the KNH. Jamal Black however has been pushing for peace between the two nations, or atleast detente. President Black is currently in the works with fostering friendlier ties with the KNH and rumors that a peace conference will be held to hopefully end the violence between them once and for all.

The House of Cards Collapse



Nadeera stood nervously at the Parliament in front of her. This felt like a really bad nightmare where she was naked, but that wasn't the case here. She cleared her throat and looked at the script in front of her and begun to speak.

"Members of Parliament, I come to you today to propose a brighter future for humanity. With the approval of the Parliament, i believe that the Union of Arabia could lead the future with a Peacekeeping organization. The Union of Territories Accord is my proposal for such a p-peacekeeping organization."

She swore in her head as she stuttered over her words. She looked at the audience in front of her, and saw that the audience was silent. This wasn't a contemplative silence, but rather a silence that a comedian would experience after telling a particularly tone deaf joke.

A member of Parliament spoke.

"The Union of Territories Accord?" They asked as if it was a foreign word they didn't understand.

Nadeera cleared her throat and spoke into the mic before realizing that she forgot to push the button before talking into it. "Yes, I've been working on this proposal since I graduated from University."

MP's looked at each other assuredly. Nadeera could've sworn she heard someone snickering.

"Nadeera this is a dangerous proposal you've brought before us" Aaish el-Javed said. "Your aware of the potential ramifications of you bringing this proposal before Parliament?"

"Y-yes and I accept any decision from Parliament." She nervously smiled and looked around hoping to win them over.

A MP spoke "Nadeera, you are in violation of your oath of office. As a MP of the UNA you are to represent your region and simply act on their best behalf. In your oath of office it clearly states that and I quote." They shuffled through papers on their desk and when they found the paper they cleared their throat. "I as a Member of Parliament do swear not be involved in any organization or nation without a majority consent from Parliament."

"Y-yes b-bu-" Nadeera stammered.

"As this is a clear violation of her oath of office I immediately motion a vote to not only step down Nadeera from office but to also vote to Exile Nadeera al-Shareef." The MP said.

The room hollered "Here, Here."

Nadeera was beginning to feel the onset of a panic attack.

"All for!" The Prime Minister said.

Nearly the entire room stood.

"All against?" They spoke.

Only one or two MP's seemed to be standing up.

"Very well. Nadeera al-Shareef. In violation of your oath of office in an attempt to get the nation involved in a International agreement without approval from a majority approval of Parliament, I along with nearly unanimous approval from Parliament hereby sentence you to step down from your office and to exile. You have by the end of the month to gather your things and leave the nation for good." They said before slamming their gavel.

Nadeera began crying and stammering running into Security Guards. They watched over the Parliament to ensure that everything was orderly. The Security Guards scooped up a wailing and crying Nadeera and restrained her as they carried her away from the Parliament Building.

The House of Cards Collapse



Towards the end of 2100 the North American New Republic had announced that they were hosting a delegation of representatives from the Kingdom of New Heaven to discuss a possible peaceful future between the two nations. On March 8th 2101 the congress would be hosted in Raleigh North Carolina and would even have the President and Vice President of the Kingdom of New Heaven attending the conference.

The meeting itself would go without a hitch and it had been heard that the meeting went well and that a successful agreement would be reached far sooner than believed. History would have a different fate for these two. As the President was being escorted from the Governmental building in Raleigh to secure housing, a group of assassins would strike. The Assassins would later be found out to be an organization composed of refugees and escapees from the Kingdom of New Heaven that fled the massive and brutal Conversion camps that the KNH owned and operated.

The Organization was called The Conductors, a reference to the underground railroad leading from the KNH into the NANR. The Conductors primarily existed to make sure that agents sent to take back people who fled the KNH didn't get their person they wanted. However when the Conductors heard that the President of the KNH was visiting the NANR, they couldn’t pass up the opportunity for revenge.

The Assassins shot multiple guns at the convoy and tossed multiple handheld weaponry such as a Molotov Cocktail and Pipe Bombs. Eventually from a combination of these attacks a convoy containing the President would catastrophically explode, killing him and some of his security detail. The peace congress was cancelled and the Vice President fled from the NANR. Upon arrival of New Jerusalem Vice President Vickers Smith vowed to take revenge for the death of President Micheal LeVay.

The NANR tried to make amends with the KNH, even going as far as extraditing the suspects of the terrorist attack to the KNH. This was to no avail as on the eve of March 22nd the KNH, with majority approval from the senate, would declare a Crusade against the NANR and their allies. In desperation the NANR joined the League of Nations which set off a series of events that would plunge the world into darkness.

March Crisis
Following the NANR’s admission into the League of Nations this action would result in the UCA issuing an ultimatum demanding that the KNH needs to demobilize and step down from this course of action. The ECW in response would issue their own ultimatum that the UCA step down and then the KNH will follow suit as well. The ultimatums would be ignored as a UCA battle-fleet would come across an ECW battle-fleet in the Atlantic. While being a small skirmish with only a handful of deaths on either side it is from here on out that war would be unavoidable.

Opening Attacks 2101: North America
The KNH had around A million troops on the borders of the NANR and Mexico. The KNH would launch their offensives “OPERATION DAVID, and OPERATION JERICHO” and immediately attack the NANR and Mexico simultaneously. Army Group South would be designated for OPERATION JERICHO and Army Group East would be designated for OPERATION DAVID. Operation Jericho would push deep into previously NANR territory and push the Mexican forces into the mountains and hold a defensive line there. Operation David would push from the North and the South, bypassing the Appalachian mountains and squeezing the NANR forces with a massive offensive. The KNH battle plan is to knock out the NANR, before sweeping through the USM forces and then crushing the WCC.

In return the Mexican forces would implement OPERATION: PUEBLA and hunker down in various areas and if strategic areas were to be lost such as the texan oil fields then the soldiers would implement Scorched Earth Tactics and burn the Oil fields. The NANR would implement OPERATION: RED DAWN and evacuate the civilians from areas believed to be in the crosshairs of the KNH and fight brutal Urban Warfare battles forcing the KNH to fight for every town.

The operations would be implemented and the first land battle of the war would be fought in Dallas. The KNH forces would rapidly overwhelm the City encircling it in a Classic pincer maneuver. The KNH would then begin the first in a series of trends in this war. The KNH would begin carpet bombing the city and launching White Phosphorus mortars on designated targets to great effect. A week into the battle and the troops caught in the pocket would surrender.

The USM would issue cautious retreat orders and begin their campaigns of destroying the Texan Oil Fields. Refineries and Pumps would be blown up, demolished or targeted by Artillery strikes. The KNH desperate to take the oil fields would launch Spec Ops raids to capture these oil fields. Only a handful of oil refineries/oil pumps would be salvaged, with the USM rapidly pulling back to their mountain ranges.

Army Group East would retake control of the Mississippi river and would subsequently split the southern Army Forces of the NANR. The forces would attempt a retreat into mexican territory only to be caught and encircled at the battle of Moss Bluff. The southeastern NANR forces would fight for each town one by one in the south, until finally UCA Reinforcements came and managed to hold the southern line by the South Carolina-Georgian Border.

To the North the KNH their offensives would be largely unsuccessful. While the KNH managed to take Pittsburgh and Toronto with little to no resistance, they would be beaten back following the failure of the Battle of Montreal. The territories taken by the KNH were also purposefully met with little resistance as the northern force focused on Guerilla Warfare, sewing chaos behind the frontlines. Here the frontlines would be more or less stagnant for the time as with the UCA in the war the KNH would have to figure out a way to break through UCA fronts. The UCA wouldn't counter attack lacking the necessary resources and logistics needed to launch a counter offensive, and the UCA was focused on consolidating this war that was growing to be more than they could handle alone.

The Summer Offensive would begin where the KNH would launch another attack in the east. This massive assault would also be met with a surprise aerial attack on the capital of the nation Raleigh, and on the Military Command Headquarters the Pentagon. This attack was launched by only the most fanatical of the KNH troops as their lives would be thrown away for the hope of breaking through in the east. The Pentagon attack would largely be thwarted with little to no resistance, but the capital Raleigh would be met with surprise as the forces began to bear down on the Governmental capital of the NANR. The Confusion from this act would cause a brief diversion of resources that ultimately would be the death blow to the front-line in the south.

The KNH forces assaulted the frontlines with everything they had and ultimately forced the League forces to issue a mass retreat as the KNH surged forward. Ultimately the Frontline would finally be halted again by the North-South Carolina borders, leading to Charlotte being mass evacuated. Charlotte would become a forward operating base for the League forces in the NANR and plans to turn it into a veritable fortress would begin. With winter rolling in the offensives once again crawled to a stalemate. The KNH Military High Command bragged to KNH officials that the war would be over in no time, and the NANR began issuing orders for a massive mobilization not seen since World War 2.



Opening Attacks 2101: Asia, Eurasia & The Pacific
Following the declaration of war on the Terran Alliance the Citizen Republic of China had activated their defensive battle plan Operation Sun Tzu (战斗计划:孙子). Operation Sun Tzu would take a page straight out of the Art of War and fight a primarily defensive war in a hope to grind down their enemies.

The European Commonwealth had teamed up with the SSA to formulate OPERATION CANCER. The plan is a simple overwhelming offensive against China in a pincer maneuver, attacking from the north and the south simultaneously in order to overwhelm the chinese forces.

March 29th would begin OPERATION CANCER and the SSA and ECW would launch a massive large scale invasion into the CCR. The CCR executed their battle plan and dug in like ticks. The CCR forces defended areas heavily and caused much chaos and dismay for the Invading forces. The pièce de résistance of OPERATION SUN TZU would be the battle of Wuhai.There token CCR defensive force guarding Wuhai managed to rout a force nearly 3x their size suffering little to no casualties in the process.

The SSA would delay the assault from the south being hesitant to do so, wishing to focus more on a OCF offensive. When a letter from the ECW High Marshall would be sent to the Chairmen of the SSA demanding that they invade unless they see all support from the Terran Alliance cut off. The SSA finally attacked from the south and as a result would see some of the worst losses in the war. The worst part of the southern invasion would be from the battle of Nanning where the CCR would allow the SSA to take the city, only to ultimately encircle the attacking force. The battle was a disaster for the SSA and a massive success for the CCR, hailing it as a decisive victory.

Chinese Soldier preparing for the Summer Offensive July 12th 2101
During the Summer the CCR would launch their counter offensive and would manage to not only retake their lost territory but also push into SSA and ECW territory, capturing Mongolia in its entirety. The success in China has led to the UCA more and more pulling out of China and moving into the NANR to desperately hold the KNH at bay. This has caused much problems within Chinese High Command as their military is more and more being forced to deal with a multifront war on their own. All offensives were halted as a result until they can better plan around this.

In Oceania the Oceanic Federation implemented their plan for the war OPERATION ANACONDA in which their Navy would encircle the SSA and implement a total blockade of the nation. At first OPERATION ANACONDA was halted by SSA offensives and raids but would eventually become a success as the SSA would be forced to divert their resources towards the disastrous South Chinese Offensive. The following Blockade would not see any other major conflicts in the war. In the SSA they began panicking as the blockade would begin to significantly cause problems in the future. The SSA commanders were angry with the European Commonwealth demanding that they break the blockade somehow only for vague promises to be sent back.

By the end of the year the casualties of the war had easily broken a million.

External Geopolitics
World wide the outbreak of war would lead to a mix of reactions from various places. In Arabia they would immediately cancel all foriegn treaties and long-term agreements, only allowing trade in and out of their nation. During this time a politician named Nadeera al-Shareef would propose the creation for a global peacekeeping organization called “The Union of Territories Accord.” The policy was immediately shot down and Nadeera al-Shareef would be exiled from the Union of Arabia. Following her 30 day safe period she begged nations across the world to lend her refuge and to see her vision come true. Ultimately Japan would listen and welcome Nadeera al-Shareef into Japan.

Japan has sat back on the sidelines, and is pushing for peace between nations. When news arose of the UTA and of an upstart politician by the name of Nadeera al-Shareef they would openly invite her into Japan and would allow her safe residence in the nation. Japan has begun carefully managing this now increasingly tense web of geopolitical entanglements.

The Anarchist territories of the Americas have begun to meet to discuss what to do involving the war. While the Territories adamantly are against the war, believing it to be another Imperialist War, the Kingdom of New Heaven is proving to be increasingly worse and worse as the years continue. The West Coast Commune supports war with the KNH, while the Free territories are ultimately indifferent towards the idea. Africa and the GSU have largely been silent in the matter not saying how they feel one way or another.

In space, everything would largely be peaceful as none of the violence that is now the norm on Earth would be carried into space following strict anti-weapon laws.

The year has ended, and the war will continue again. As the war has only just begun, and the casualties have only begun to rise.

“I don't do good with public stuff like this, I have pretty bad anxiety.” Nadeera protested.
“Listen you will be fine, we’ve been working on this, you need to make an appearance for the people and make yourself more known to the people.” Yoshio Kato said.

Yoshio Kato was the former Prime Minister of Japan. Widely regarded as one of the better Prime Ministers Japan has had in awhile, he mysteriously and famously left his retirement to personally train and support Nadeera al-Shareef. al-Shareef was eternally grateful for this as she was completely out of her depth.

An aide came rushing in holding a tablet in her arms “Nadeera your on.” She said in a hurried rush.

Nadeera was starting to shiver from her anxiety, Kato picking up on this looked at her like a father and reassured her that she would be just fine. Nadeera nodded and got up walking out onto the talk show stage. The talk show had a plain background that would place greater emphasis on the people on-stage which Nadeera subtly picked up on. The Host was a pretty normal looking face for this kind of ordeal. He was average looking. The center of the stage had a table and two chairs one chair was empty, Nadeera’s chair.

Nadeera sat down on the chair and waited anxiously. She looked over to the host and the host looked back at her.

“Are you ready to begin the show?” He said.

“Yes sir” Nadeera said.

“Good.” The man clapped his hands twice and the black room around her filled with what looked like a coffee shop. They were sitting in what looked like to be the very back of the coffee shop and the room felt like it had a surprisingly deep depth to it.

“What the-” Nadeera said shocked.

“Its a holographic room, I set it to something mutual and something relatable to the audience.” The host said.

Nadeera has seen holographic rooms and technology a lot like this. In the Union of Arabia she has been to the occasional Holo-theatre or two but this was much more impressive than any holo-theatre she’s ever been to. The room filled with a countdown timer going from 5 to 1 in big numbers. Once it hit one the numbers disappeared and the host started talking.

“Hello once again and I am your host, Obi Tsuyoshi once again interviewing important people from celebrities to politicians. Today I am joined by a local up and coming figure in our tumultuous times Nadeera al-Shareef.” He said.

“A pleasure to be here” Nadeera said with a smile.

“So Nadeera how are you enjoying Japan so far?” The host asked.

“It's different, that's for sure.” Nadeera said.

Her mind cut to images of Kato teaching her how to use chopsticks and how to read, speak and write perfect japanese. Among other things she was just reminded of other stuff within Japan that made life here much more radically different than if she were in Arabia.

“Now you came here after the Union of Arabia Exiled you from their nation is that correct?”

“Yes it is.” Nadeera said, starting to feel some of her anxiety creep in.

“Now, much of the audience doesn't know much about Arabian laws and customs. So if my notes are correct you were exiled after you brought up your now infamous Union of Territories proposal correct?” He asked.

“Yes, but its a little more complex than that. It's just that the Arabians are deeply afraid.” She explained.

“Afraid?” The host asked. Nadeera couldn't tell if the host was asking because he didn't understand what she meant by that or if he was just doing his job and trying to get her to explain herself a bit better. Nadeera thought about it for a moment.

“Well scared. Scared that they will get involved in disastrous wars or conflicts much like what plagued us in the Twenty first century.” She said.

“Yes I see, well when you explain it like that it makes sense especially considering the events going on around us in the world. Given how much of your people feel about the world, how come you, let's face it, rough inexperienced and rookie politician, decided to propose a grand plan to radically change how the world itself functions?” He asked.

That was a pretty good question that Nadeera was starting to struggle to come up with an answer to. “Well it was never my intention to lead the Union when I proposed it back within Arabia. I wanted the Prime Minister of Arabia to maybe form some kind of committee to better break it down and decide on where to go and what to do with it. My proposal however has had deep thought and consideration put into it. I spent years researching and drafting my proposal, looking at the United Nations and the 1920’s League of Nation. I feel that this proposal, this Idea could be the one that works.” She says.

“Nadeera have you ever considered that maybe the reason why these other organizations, that were also tasked with keeping the peace in the world and between nations, failed is because of Human nature? Maybe mankind is not meant to work together and this is the reason why these various organizations have failed.” He said.

Nadeera sat back and thought about that. Then snapped back with a witty response. “There is an American saying, 3rd Times the charm!” She said jokingly. “No but yes I have thought about this, but at the end of the day this is false. If we aren't meant to work together you wouldn't really see the now rising pacifist and peacetime movements across the world. The reason my proposal is starting to seriously gain traction is because everyone seriously sees this as a possibility, and alternative to what seems like unending bloodshed.” She said.

“It's good that you mentioned unending bloodshed because the big topic of our time is this war. The war has already skyrocketed when it comes to casualties, some are already projecting the war has hit maybe two million or more casualties and this war seems to only be growing in intensity especially after the long raging battle within Charlotte city within the North American New Republic. So my question would have to be how do you get these nations that will no doubt have some revanchism towards each other to put down their hatred for the time and essentially work together long enough to see this vision of yours come true?”

Again another hard hitting answer. He was good at his job, she thought.“Well we all want peace at the end of the day like I said. Eventually this war will run out of steam, either through victory or just war exhaustion. The world will need to work together if we are to recover from this conflict. Again the people will be a tremendous help when it comes to this but more importantly world leaders will need to wake up and smell the roses.” She said.

The man simply nodded at this response.

“Well I guess I only have one question left to ask you Nadeera. Do you think that people will ever stop this violence, this bloodshed, this killing?” The man asked.

Nadeera sat back and seriously gave this some thought. This was undoubtedly not a question for the audience, but for herself. “I would like for it to end...” she said, sitting in silence for a minute. “...However I know that it might never end. The harsh reality is that what i'm doing and what everyone is working for might be pointless. We can't let this hold us back though. At the end of the day we have to work for the world that we want to see, or else it's never going to get better. All this bloodshed, this violence, this brutality can only end if we want it to end. That's all there is to it.” Nadeera said.

“Well thank you for coming to the show. I had a wonderful interview with you Nadeera al-Shareef and I wish you the best of luck in your journey.” He said.

“Thanks it certainly helps” She said smiling at him. The holographic projection around her ended as the show ended.

North American Theater
The NANR had been beaten back to the North-South Carolina border. The situation was getting more and more desperate. The President of the NANR had formally declared a National state of Emergency and had signed executive orders to give the Military more and more power. These orders were not protested as they were seen as necessary to survive. An Executive order nicknamed the “Conscription Order” mandated that all non-essential personnel were to report to the nearest recruitment center. The NANR military dramatically rose in size and strength from this law and soon the Army was able to rapidly fortify the border. The pinnacle of this was the city of Charlotte.
Charlotte was once considered to be a trade capital of the Republic, but was now slowly being turned into a fortified Bastion for the NANR Army. The NANR Army Sergeant Major of the Army Rowan Salazar was famously quoted as saying “Every tooth, every nail, every glass and every pipe will be used to defend the city..” rapidly the NANR brought in offworld resources and used them to erect Nanocomposite fortification strongpoints. Buildings were deliberately demolished to make certain roads impassable and to funnel troops down other roads. The fortification plans of the city were rapidly accomplished within the span of three months, surprising some lower level KNH officers and even leading to them raising some doubts as to a future offensive.

The defence of Charlotte was also greatly helped by an experimental UCA Technology Deflector shielding. The Deflector shields could outright stop all offensive weaponry for a limited amount of time. The deflector shields would require enormous amounts of power to use. While normally not a problem on UCA Maritime vessels that primarily carried with them Nuclear Power, this would prove to be a major gap in the set up of defenses. Rowan Salazar as a result would issue orders stating that these Deflector shields will only be used to augment pre-existing defenses instead of replacing them.

The fortification deadline would end when Recon Companies reported that the KNH was initiating their offensive. The Battle of Charlotte was on. The frontlines would hold for a time, when eventually the KNH broke through and eventually made their way into the city. Charlotte would create a bulge in the frontlines for the KNH offensives and would become a thorn in the side for the invasion. Many divisions would be diverted from the edges and move to take Charlotte. Soon Charlotte would see the entire might of Army Group East bear down on them. The city would become the closest thing to hell ever seen in this war. Street after street would be fought over with an intensity not seen anywhere else. UCA observers and news casters reporting these events would be in awe at the level of carnage and bloodshed fought for just this one city.

NANR Soldier in the Battle of Charlotte 5/16/2102

Army group north that was responsible for attacking and making a breakthrough from the north would slowly pull away more and more until only a defensive force was left. Breakthrough attempts by the KNH were made through the Appalachian Mountains but would ultimately result in disaster due to the terrain and the guerilla warfare they had to contend with. Soon the KNH moved all of their chips towards the battle of Charlotte and this one battle rapidly would grow in size and devastation. The Battle of Charlotte will be a decisive victory for any side as by the end of 2102 the battle still rages for the broken and battered streets.

To the south Mexican forces began to recover from the offensive. Mexican diplomats would be seen talking to the Communes within the Free Territories of the Americas to ask for their aid in the battle against the KNH. Many Communes would send a militia or two, while others would dedicate their entire communes to the fight. The USM Military command began to plan for an offensive to break through the KNH frontlines before the terror campaigns began. KNH forces began to launch airstrikes, artillery barrages and other attacks on civilian targets. The KNH would try and kill as many Mexicans as possible in order to break them down in this war. These orders however would be protested by some officers with smaller levels of desertion being reported.

The USM MILCOM undeterred by these attacks only doubled down and began to focus on making a significant breakthrough to buy their allies the NANR the victory needed in order to survive. The USM forces launched an all out offensive pushing the frontline of the KNH back. This offensive eventually overwhelmed the KNH forces and the USM would manage to push the KNH past the Rio Grande. This offensive would see divisions dedicated to the battle of charlotte having to pull back to halt the offensive. The USM would pull back behind the Rio Grande for the time being, and would prepare for the next offensive into the KNH territory. The Diverted troops instead of going back to Charlotte would stay on the Mexican frontline and hold the line.

The UCA, still stretched thin, was not able to provide much help to the Mexican or the NANR fighters. The UCA approved various Spec Ops missions in an effort to harass the logistics and reinforcements headed towards Charlotte. UCA Fighters and other transports carried out missions involving tactical strikes in Charlotte, minor reinforcement of troops and positions and CASEVAC’s. A UCA Convoy would even be instrumental in leading the NANR Government and other important figures out of Raleigh and moving them in Philadelphia in the event Charlotte was lost to the KNH.

European & Asian Theater
European Commonwealth forces within the Umayyad Commissariat would send a report to the Marshall council that the AFN had begun their invasion of North Africa. Following this the Stalin Commissariat reported the uprisings of various Russian insurgents and the Greater Slavic Union’s forces invasion of the Commissariat. These invasions were followed by a massive CCR invasion leading to the ECW Having to contend with three multiple offensives at once. The High Marshalls were more scared of the Africans pushing and eventually capturing their capital and all of their Marshalls at Malta would flee and relocate to Berlin.

After relocating greater control over the ECW forces was seen and the ECW mobilized their population during this great time of Crisis. Quickly the AFN would retake Africa from the ECW leading to a great celebration within the AFN. The GSU forces would eventually recapture Moscow, causing a massive boost of morale within GSU fighters. The ECW refusing to lose to either began their two pronged offensives, One offensive would land ECW troops in Tunisia and retake the Northern African Territories, and their second offensive would crush the GSU.

Army Groups South, and East were formed and began their offensive campaigns during summer. Multiple naval invasions of North Africa however were ultimately halted as the AFN crushed the Tunasian invasion causing the largest disproportional case of casualties seen in the war after one battle. ECW would send diplomats to discuss peace with Africa, but ultimately these peace deals would be denied. The AFN would only accept peace if the GSU could reclaim their russian territories. This was adamantly denied, and the ECW ramped up its efforts to crush the GSU.

The CCR would rapidly push to meet up with GSU and hopefully end the war by the end of the year. With the Chaos caused by the GSU’s assault of the Stalin Commissariat, the CCR would rapidly overwhelm their enemies quickly ending much of the resistance they faced. Soon the CCR troops would link up with the GSU and their forces would team up to halt the ECW offensives into the GSU.

Within the CCR however the anti-war protests were finally kicking into overdrive. The LACS would see an explosive growth in membership following the CCR’s involvement in the war. Multiple protests began to seriously disrupt major cities within China. Martial Law was declared under CCR president Qin Jian. This decision would haunt the CCR as with it, a low intensity series of riots would eventually escalate over time threatening to boil over into civil war. By the end of the year the CCR would hold an emergency Senatorial session. The Session would discuss what to do over this and hopefully revoke the Citizen Service. With 2102 ending and the emergency session still going it's up in the air as to how they will vote.

Japanese Protesters demanding the approval of the UTA
Nadeera al-Shareef
Within Japan the once obscure politician was now beginning to rapidly expand in popularity. She would attend various talk shows and would make a more known presence within the public sphere. Her Union of Territories proposal was rapidly gaining traction within Japan and soon, People's Committees and parties would form pressuring the Japanese government to accept the formation of the Union of Territories Accord. Following the inclusion of the GSU and the AFN within the war, the proposal was taken more and more seriously and soon the Japanese government relented and held a vote on the matter by the end of the year.

The vote would see various arguments for its formation both for and against and ultimately the fate of the Union, Nadeera, and of Humanity would be determined within the Japanese Parliament.

The KNH looks to be having problems with their offensive.

The ECW also isn’t looking to be doing well.

The UTA might have the KNH or the ECW be forced to join by internal pressure/coups.

Unlikely, the KNH's ideology would prevent that as they are the only ones who have seen the light, a bit more unsure about ECW's politics.

Turning point



[A frozen video fills the screen. The top of the video has the date 2.20.2103. The Video plays and a soldier sits in front of the camera. The Soldier looks like he has not slept in a month. A layer of dirt, grime and concrete dust cake his face. Sweat drips down his face and dried blood is seen on parts of his face.On his uniform the name B. VICKERS is spelled out. He lets out a long exhaustive sigh that quickly breaks down into tears. The soldier cries for about a minute before he regains himself.]

Brad Vickers: Well, today is my birthday.

[He lets out another long and intensive sigh]

Brad Vickers: Or at least I think it is. The days have been a-a-a blur. I can't remember the last time I slept. [He sits back sprawled on his chair.]

Brad Vickers: I lost Zack today. I saw him get popped right in the head. It's surreal seeing your best friend from kindergarten just. Just. [He breaks down into tears once more]

Brad Vickers: I- I don't even know where I am. I can't feel anything i-i-i-im so tired and hungry and i'm just. I’ve been in Charlotte for what feels like years. Sometimes I wonder if I did die earlier and I'm just in hell right now. Fuck i dont even know why im still FUCKING MAKING THESE VIDEOS! [He says screaming in anger slamming his fists into his face and screaming in pain.]

Brad Vickers: [Long moment of silence fills the air] . . . when I was younger me and uhm… me and zack used to play out by the woods from his grandparents house. It was [Vickers begins to chuckle a bit] interesting. One time we uh used to play like we were soldiers, we would fire these toy guns at the air pretending to be spec ops or whatever else we wanted to be at the time. One time we were playing and I had slipped and fell and one of those toy guns flew in the air and hit my head pretty hard. For toy guns they seemed to hurt a lot. I'm going to miss him. I think once this is all over i'm going to try and buy that house, retire there. All I gotta do is just make it. That's it, just make. It.

[He rubs his face with both of his hands and then finally lets out another long sigh.]

Brad Vickers: I can do this. This is Brad Vickers, February 20th 2103 until next time.

[He moves his hands over to the camera and the video ends.]

Turning Point



North American Theater
The Union of Citizens Alliance capitalizing on the KNH brutality of the North American war managed to see their recent recruitment drive explode with new personnel. The UCA had finally enough numbers to launch a serious offensive in the war. Major General Alex Catalá devised a plan to completely crush the KNH within North America, before moving on to sweep through the European Commonwealth. The UCA would launch a full-scale invasion in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. After these invasions the forces would relieve the NANR in Charlotte, and completely rout or destroy Army Group East. On February 7th 2103 the UCA forces would land their invasion forces in Savannah Georgia, Jacksonville Florida, and Mobile Alabama. Rapidly the UCA forces would push forward and quickly overwhelm the KNH defenders. By the 8th of March The UCA held full control of these states and rapidly pushed forward to finish the rest of Army Group East.

The UCA Forces moved in the outskirts of Charlotte, and wrapped around the city. By the time they got there most of the city was just reduced to rubble. Quickly the UCA forces linked up with the NANR soldiers and after one more week of fighting, the KNH Army Group East would either Route, dissolve, or just surrender. The NANR soldiers would emerge victorious from the battle of Charlotte, but the battle had taken everything out of the NANR, and the KNH. NANR would see desertion and outright refusal to fight skyrocket. The NANR demobilized parts of their Army to help quell the desertion issues and institute better rewards and care for soldiers currently enlisted. Within Mexico the Mexican Army would launch another offensive across the Rio Grande in sync with the UCA offensives. Quickly the KNH army in the south routed from the now surging forward Mexican Army.

The situation within the KNH had grown desperate. Desertion was rising and growing dissent within home was starting to take place. The KNH congress convened and in response the President Announced that the KNH was now in total control of the Military. The KNH Military assumed control over the nation and vowed that they would “Destroy the Philistines, for God.” The nation would see an almost total mobilization and the age number of recruitment dropped to 16, with veterans allowed and even encouraged to re-enlist. Many widely denounced these actions and claimed that they were going against God's will, but harsh military measures were taken to quell dissent.

The Free territories of the Americas would meet in an immediate congress following the Militia fighters of the FTA returning home. They would bring with them a War fervor and soon with the Alliance of the West Coast Commune, they would launch their offensive against the KNH and ally with the forces only occupied in the North American Theater. West Coast Militia fighters would be seen entering Dakota and launching attacks against police, soldiers, or any other forces they came across. Towns and other territories would slowly be liberated by the WCC and with it a rise in Anarchist-Communist thought. The NANR would manage to make successive breakthroughs in the North and quickly push back the KNH rapidly closing the borders in the North.

Asia & Eurasian Theater
Within the Socialist States of Asia the Blockade and subsequent surrounding of the League of Nations would cause massive problems for the Socialist States of Asia. The blockades were causing massive economic problems and attributed to a surge in Riots and dissent within the SSA. Within China the Chinese Senate had announced that when the War is over, no matter if won or lost the Chinese Citizen Republic would formally dissolve the Citizen Service and turn China into the Chinese Republic. This election caused a surge of celebration within China and much of the riots would die down for a time.

The SSA, already on the verge of collapse would see itself dissolve. Within Vietnam the local Socialist State would see their local council declare independence from the SSA. Following this within Pakistan Revolutionary fighters would over through their Council and declare their independence from the SSA. This would rapidly spiral out of control and soon India once again dissolved into internal infighting and civil war. The Oceanic Federation, and the CCR would step in the area setting up occupation zones in an attempt to keep the peace in the region.

Rebellious Mobs move through out a Indian Town

Within the European Commonwealth the loss of their ally in South East Asia and of the now growing russian tide caused a major concern within the ECW. Within the Council the Marshalls have their votes split in two. One Side advocating for peace and the other advocating for war. This division within the Council has caused major problems in effectively handling the war and with dealing with the unrest at home. Rumors within the ECW are of coup, but many within the ECW have dismissed this as Panic-mongering.

Greater Slavic Union forces had finally established control of their old Russian Territory. The rising strength of the European Commonwealth would start to catch up to the Greater Slavic Union. GSU forces would send messages and memos to the ECW asking for peace and an end to arms. The ECW would fall silent on all these messages as their issues began to swell.

The Union of Territories Accord
Within the Japanese Parliament the Union of Territories Proposal would pass with flying colors. While initially the vote would be close inevitably it was an impassioned speech from Nadeera al-Shareef to the Parliament that won the vote. Within Japan immediate plans would be made to push for the construction of the Union of Territories Headquarters and a Committee of Diplomats would reach out to various nations across the world for membership within the UTA.

The Union of Arabia would receive the invite to the UT, but would ultimately reject it again. Nadeera al-Shareef was deeply disappointed by this but would push on regardless. Among this time period a committee within Japan a contest for the design of the emblem and flag of the Union of Territories would be held. The Contest would announce a winner from a Local Artist within Japan Yamskikh Nashka Tarasovna. Her entry was called “From the Ashes” and depicted the now infamous emblem of the UTA, a Phoenix with the World in its wings. The Flag would be announced to the world and the first ever commissioned flag of the Union of Territories would be completed on 10/11/2103. Union Protestors have begun to gather on mass to push for their local governments to accept the proposal, and finally end the war.

That scene was... emotional, and it makes the death so much more tragic...

Also, looks like the war is reaching its closing stages...
