- War in South America finally ends.
- wrong pic.
- Canada, America, and Hollywood meet in a small town at all three of their borders. They decide to join up and become a SINGLE nation of North America. This is hailed by the citizens of all three nations as they were getting tired of the continuous wars. The new nation is called the North American Republic, or NAR for short.

- (The map for Africa is finished).
- All is quiet in the world as many nations just want to recover from the decades of warfare, thus a baby boom begins across the globe.
- As winter rolls by Wiremu Rutherford is hired by some top military analyst in the newly formed NAR and assigned to make a bomb, this ironically teams him up with the only white man to openly agree with what he has to say, Albert Einstein (he convinced them that the theory could work, and they listened. Albeit in his young age he is only able to convince to keep Wiremu Rutherford on until the bomb is made)

- The Fascist Republic of Mexico is founded.
- India gains much of Siam after a brief war.
- Panama and Suez become independent.

- Any citizen that fells that they would like to get involved in European affairs on the New British side is told that they could if they get dual citizenship, but the NAR one well be suspended.
- North American Republic see the Mexican Fascist as a credible threat to any democracies/republic in North/Central/South America. They launch an invasion of the coastal area along with an invasion by land; these attacks move swiftly and the Mexican armed forces is barely holding on.
- The other nations in the Central American Confederation, instead of helping the already failing state of Mexico, tighten their borders to the north and persuade Panama to join. The Gran Columbia doesn't like this much and eyes them for invasion, but wishes not to go along with it, instead in favor of a propaganda war.
- All nations in the Middle East that aren't part of the Indian Continental Republic (the purple thing near China, da big one) join the Republic of Mecca in favor to long, strong and united against the eyeing enemies in the north and west.
- Kieserick (?) and Japan, seeking vengeance, ally and invade Russia. The Chinese decide to help Russia instead and invades southern Kieserick (?) with (ironically) great success.'
- Russian invades Kieserick (?) to the south (if you were wondering why China would want to help a country that is literally a country away)
- Many powers declare themselves neutral unless they are already involved in the wars some in some way; in which case they take the appropriate sides.
- The New British Empire allies with Australia and New Zealand, but all three declare neutrality in any wars in the Americas as well as Africa and only wish to defend themselves.
- Early in the year, NAR attacks and holds the rest of Mexico. Cashing in on their success, they conquer the Central American Confederation, the British holdout on Vancouver Island, and the rest of the isles of the Caribbean.
This scares the be-jesus out of the South Americans who form la Gran Confederación Sudamericana and invade the Guianas. The Americas are now owned by two world powers: NAR and GCS.
- The rest of the world prepares for more and more war.
- The Great Crash. Financial Markets all across the world, strained from the endless cycle of wars, abruptly collapse.
- Ironically, The crash silences most of the wars flashing around the world. the 'Seven Years Peace' begins.
- NAR and GCS start to recover with massive amounts of their economy being spent in a military buildup as a Cold War between the two nations begin. The New British Empire unfortunately was unable to keep a stable economy and fell; NAR took it over in order to stabilize the area (otherwise known as Vancouver Island).
- NAR, in the FAR NORTH and away from all praying eyes successfully detonates an atomic weapon and keeps it a secret to all the world, afraid that it may fall into enemy hands. they also tighten the security around its inventor and his friend. (This weapon is not as powerful as OTL, but still packs one hell of a punch....as in most of the city would be destroyed).
- The war in the far east of Russia ends with new borders being drawn up for all three nations, and an unsettling peace agreement.
- Australia, British New Zealand, and Indonesia all for the South Asian Coalition. The Maori Kingdom refuses to join. This entitles that each nation well work through this hard time and that each one shall help each other in any time of war. However, all the governments well remain separate and all laws well to. This makes a more stable peace in the region then before.
- What is left of France could not withstand the meltdown of their market and in a drastic plea joins the New Roman Empire, but does secure that all overseas lands will remain formally in French military control, so that at lest some part of France will live on.
- Otherwise this year is only marred by a mine in California collapsing and killing the 149 miners inside. The outcries form the public make the government take a better look at safety of their citizens in all dangerous activities, such as mining, drilling, and construction. New codes are written up that allow for FAR safer working conditions and stricter penalties for not having the proper safety gear for MOST of the situations that a worker may face.
- Britain gets hit once more and is beginning to crumble.
- in Britain, the Fascist party wins the 1933 election and appoint Sir Edmund Ironside as ruler of Britain.
- Read the other post in history, dude. Britain doesn't exist anymore and is part of the Grand Celtic Union
- Oh, then in that case, the Grand Celtic Union Fascist Party takes control, with Sir Edmund "Ironside" becoming their ruler.
- The NAR purchases four air destroyers from the Zeppelin Company. They are named Akron, Macon, Shenandoah and Los Angeles.

- Irish rule in Britain becomes increasingly unpopular. A certain wag comments that the Seven Year Peace didn't reach Britain what with the Resistance.
- The Grand Celtic Union becomes increasingly Irish centric and isolationist, selling its French territories to the NeoRomans and breaking off its alliances.
The Peoples of the North American Republic begin to spread the National Radio networks across the continent, creating a national identity. The issues of the day race from east to west and from north to south. The Panama Canal is completed and trade begins at a frenetic pace. The GCS, not wanting to be left behind, imitates with similar results. Peace is indeed good for the Americas. The old regional stereotypes still exist, but a growing sense of national solidarity begins to grow within each of the American behemoths.
- The Seven Years Peace ends.
- With a new alliance between the New Roman Empire and the Fourth Reich with the goal to take most, if not all of Europe. The war begins with the invasion of Spain and Finland (I forgot what they are called). The War in Europe begins.
- Russia now sees its chance to take back some of its older European holdings and with the Spanish,Finland and Portugal alliance, so it joins. Soon it becomes known as the second World War when NAR openly supports Ruso-Spaniard-Finnish-Portugal alliance and GCS openly supporting NeoRoman Empire. The War in America Begins.
- In the east it is mirrored by how China. The Indian Continental Republic supports the actions of Russo-Spaniard-Finnish-Portugal alliance, and thus where able to spot a sneak attack coming from The Indian Continental Republic, and they protect Russian flanks from invasion. The War in Asia Begins.
- The Republic of Mecca joins the 4th Reich-NeoRoman's side and attacks Russia from the south.The war in the middle east begins.
- The Boar Empire allies with the Russo-Spaniard-Finnish-Portugal alliance (Old powers), to fight off the Reich-NeoRoman-Mecca holdings in Africa from sending any help to them. War in Africa Begins.

The Second World War begins
- NAR makes easy work of the first troops, but gets bogged down in the Amazonean Rainforest and the 'South American' Desert.
- the first great air battle takes place over Colombia. the NAR Air Destroyers prove themselves, facing of hordes of enemy Fighter Airplanes.
- NeoRome and the Fourth Reich are able to fend off the attacks in Europe made by the "Old Powers", and then some. They make advances in Spain and The European holdings of the Boar Empire, as well as Finland and Russia (the Russian one is mainly cause of the attack from the Republic Of Mecca). The Republic of Mecca makes some advances in the south, but unfortunately with a not-so-up-to-date military, they quickly lose most of their winnings with the first month.
- China is able to launch a sneak attack that disrupts most of the Indian Continental Republics Navy (shown by sprays of China's color on the map), and able to make some advances into what was Tibet.
- The Republic Of Mecca (RoM) and NeoRome were not ready for a war in African and lost a lot of their African holdings against the Boar Empire's strategy of having the native people (guerrillas) help them.
- Russian Armies launch a full scale assault into Japanese Occupied Kamchatka.
- The Maori Kingdom begins a major Military Spending program.
- Almost all of Kamchatka has been cleared of Japanese troops. Bombing Raids by Air Destroyers begin on Japanese Cities.
- Ethiopia invades the Australian colonies in East Africa. Australia does nothing due to the invasion of its home territory, and the impractical distance between it and the colonies.
- In South America, the NAR is slowly pushed back as guerrilla warfare and the terrible weather begins to take its toll.
- Boer Empire loses European holdings but advances into Roman Southwest Africa and into Meccan Sudan.
- Romans make a great advance into Africa and accept the surrender of Spain and Portugal who form the Iberian Union.
- Germans advance into Swedish Norway and deep into Russian territory.
- The British government-in-exile negotiates between the Ethiopians and the Australians and they agree to form a new country. The Ethiopian Emperor is monarch and the Upper house of Parliament is the Ethiopian House of Nobles and the British governments House of Lords combined. The Lower house is the the Australians colonial governments and the British governments House of Commons combined. The new country becomes known as the British African Empire.
- In Asia, China advances into India, which begins to crumble beneath sheer weight of numbers. Ill at ease, Russians are pulled away from the Kamchatka front to guard the Russo-Chinese border, whereupon the Japanese strike back.
- The Russians Launch Operation Oraski, and smash the Japanese, using newly built Armoured Terracars.
- China is split into three Nations due to different ideology.
- The Maori Kingdom launches an assault against BNZ. Initially, the well trained and disciplined Maori troops break the fortified Bombay Hills, but are stopped just short of Auckland.
War in Asia seemingly over
- War in Asia stops with The Chinese Union (not like the USA) (the three new Chinese Nations) gathering up most of what used to be Indian Continental Republic's northern land. The three nations themselves stay under one flag and, even though they can act independently, they act as if one singular nation. With that in mind, they help the Russians in pushing back Japan.
- Japan Considers a peace treaty.
The War in Africa heats up
- The New Roman Empire launches and offensive in Africa against the Boar Empire, which surprises the Boar's but also brings the newly made British African Empire in on the Boar Empire's side. In fear and full of wrath, they launch a total war against the Neo-Romans and the 4th Reich.
- This is an unexpected entry into the war and so, takes Central Alliances military commanders by surprise, as they thought tat the humanitarian trucks they hit where Boar, not British.
- The British-Boar African offensive goes on full throttle and plows through Neo-Roman lines as well as Republic of Mecca's lines (some not all)
A nuke goes off
- With the war seemingly going nowhere fast in South America, NAR chooses to use the only live-nuke bomb they have (the rest were thought to be too dangerous, and turned off; this is an experimental unit meant to stop wars) on the capital of GCS. This has unexpected consequences:
- GCS government, in bunkers designed to keep them safe from conventional bombs, doesn't help and instead helps eliminate 89% of the Central/Provisional government.
- This allows an enthusiastic military leader to lead a coup against what government was left and crown himself emperor of the sudamericana impireum (SAI).
- This marks a terrifying end to the American war, as he sends a peace treaty, that all the troops obey, to NAR. NAR, suspicious, accepts in hopes of no more war in the region.
- The peace treaty stats that NAR may keep Gran Columbia and all other northern holdings in South America.
- And finally, it says that SAI will be allowed free trade and be given economic help from NAR in response to the nuclear attack.
- The treaty also states that there should be no more nukes used in either theater, North or South.
[The grayed out area in South America are the areas hit by the weapon and the radiation cloud].
The War in Europe nears its end
- The the help from China in the east, Russia is able to push hard in the West with 85% of its military might (the rest in Asia against the Japanese) and push the Fourth Reich off of the Motherland, and even push a little to the South against the Republic Of Mecca.
- Russian and Swedish forces are able to make small advances on the Fourth Reich and Neo-Rome (Map only shows Russian not Swedish advance)
- The Central alliance (Neo-Rome, Fourth Reich, Republic of Mecca, and what is left of Japan) begin to feel the squeeze.
- Neo-Rome leaves its alliance, makes peace with the Entente Powers, and joins them in the ripe conquest of the Fourth Reich, the Reich has very few men to stop Neo-Rome, but it still holds on.
- Russia reclaims its upper Russian territories (Petrograd area)
- Japan is collapsing and soon starts the Kamikizi Program.
- Neo-Rome, with its army in Africa finally ready, it invades the Republic of Mecca (?) and begins pushing them back.
- Auckland finally falls to the Maori Kingdom. the BNZ's north island territories are annexed by the Maori Kingdom.
- Dalmatia, having been secretly supported by the Entente (which includes military support), invades the 4th Reich's territories in the Balkans. The Reich's troops are overstretched, and the territory falls with medium to low resistance. They immediately join the Entente.
- After securing the west side of the Bosporus Strait the Dalmatians, bolstered by eager recruits from the newly-conquered territories invades the Republic of Mecca's territory in Anatolia. The Meccans have most of their troops fighting in Africa and Arabia, so the fighting is also light compared to elsewhere in the world.
- The NAR launches the first man made satellite into orbit. Two months later, they send the first human into orbit.
- The Maori Kingdom invades the South Island, but the invading Force is defeated at the battle of Nelson.
- The threat of Japan gone for good, the states of the Chinese Union formally go their separate ways. The northeastern and southeastern states form the stable Republics of Manchuria and China respectively. The western state is quickly embroiled in conflict as the many ethnic groups fight for domination of the new nation. These groups end up dividing the nation into small, weak statelets. Russia, India, and (to a lesser extent) the other states from the (former) Chinese Union, end up capitalizing on this disorder. Tibet is eventually the only one of these statelets to survive.
- Indonesia retakes the Indian territory of Java.
End of WW2
- NAR, felling uneasy next to the SAI, attacks with some re-activated nukes (only three) wiping out 89% of their military and 96% of the government. This is followed by a complete occupation as the NAR renames itself AR (American Republic). [still shown in gray, the fourth one there is still their because of contamination].
- this act is condemned by other nations, but since none of them knew they had nukes or how many they might have, they take no action except to make it against INTERNATIONAL law to make or pursue nuclear weapons.
- Fighting in most of the world comes to a complete halt and all is calm.
Beginning of a New Era
- Most of Europe is reformed into a single Union called (you guessed it) European Union. The only nation not to join was Neo-Rome, which was to prideful to join.
- East Africa (the entirety of it), joins the British African Empire, which has 55% of the conceals as Africans; not British-Africans or British.
- Australia, British New Zealand, and Indonesia all make a Defense Alliance named South-Asian Defense Coalition (SADC).
- Ibinian Union's government is hit hard with a SCANDALOUS affair.
- ((I drew the map to the best of my abilities.))
Nothing much happens this year.
- The economically weak Iberian Union ceases to exist after its ramshackle finances finally collapse. The nation's territory is divided up after the central government is declared dissolved. The nation's European holdings go to the Neo-Roman Empire, the nation's West African colony goes to Sweden, and the nation's south African colonies go to the Boer Empire.
Due to political instability due to the myriad of conquered nations and the use of nuclear weapons in direct violation of a treaty signed only a short time before the American Republic erupts into civil war breaking into many splinter nations.

- Hawaii enters a bloody civil war only to reawaken as the democratic Communist country called the Peoples Collective of Hawaii.
- England decides they no longer want to abide to the laws of Ireland and they secede. Wales and Scotland follow soon after. Instead of intervening Ireland declares neutrality and decides to let them tear each other apart.
- Other than war in the British Isles, the rest of Europe sees an era of peace.
- Although remaining isolated for many years the USWE (United States of West Africa) invades the outlying territories and countries.
- The USWE reveals that it developed some of the worlds most advanced weapons during its long period of isolation.

- Roman Empire begins invasion of the Balkans and Turkey.
- Wales and England unite in the British Union and Scotland joins as an autonomous area. The capital is established in Cardiff and the invasion of Ireland the common enemy begins.
- Britain-Abyssinia becomes the second nation to launch a satellite.
- John Smith, an eighty-five year old from the American Republic, begins a small television program that rallies those in his nation. He reminds them of the unity that had been in North America in the 1800's and as recently as 3 years earlier, and especially before the imperialistic expansion into South America. He conceives of the idea of a Federated Nations of the Anglosphere. The idea takes off. His program becomes the most popular in the entire English speaking world. His ideas captivate the imagination of all the children of the long extinct English empire. Soon a conference is convened in Sacramento, the Capitol of his nation, with a goal toward economic, military and political unity. Australians, British New Zealanders, East Africans, the Brits and even the Irish join the myriad North Americans in this conference.
- At the Sacramento conference, a delegate from every attending nation signs a treaty forming the League of English-Speaking Nations. This treaty creates a common forum where differences between the myriad nations of the English-speaking world can solve their disputes without conflict. It also creates a free trade agreement between all of the nations of the league. Although the treaty states that its purpose is to establish political unity in the English speaking world, no actions are taken in that direction. Finally, the treaty includes a mutual protection pact.
- The Neo-Roman Consul is assassinated, along with most of the Neo-Roman government when a Dalmatian sympathizer detonates a bomb inside the Neo-Roman Forum (ironically imitating the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605). The Dalmatians mount a massive counter-offensive on the unorganized Neo-Roman legions. They make tremendous gains as they push the Neo-Romans out of their territory. They also gained new lands in Anatolia and seized the Neo-Roman colonies of Palestine, Cyprus and there are talks to invade Italy proper.
- The Neo-Roman Empire, still reeling from the destruction of its federal government and defeats in the war against Dalmatia, is collapsing. The Roman Empire is dying again, and several buzzards have already started to peck at it. The Dalmatians have made off with the every scrap of territory the Empire has in the eastern Mediterranean. The Iberians have started to reclaim the territory of former Spain. The Boers have begun the process of liberating the nation's former European territory. The former French colonies in Africa and Asia have banded together and announced that France was reconstituted. They too send a force to liberate their territory, namely former metropolitan France. The Neo-Romans are too busy fighting amongst themselves for them to realize that their nation's borders were imploding upon itself.
- By now the Neo-Roman Empire has been united behind a new, and charismatic, leader. He has complete control over the nation. In public he makes himself out to be a new Julius Caesar, but in reality he is a new Caligula.
- Now, three glorious years after its creation, the League of English-speaking nations unite to become what the old man had been talking about before his death in early 1958. They unite under one sovereign government named the Federated Nations of the Anglosphere. These nations include all of North America, including Quebec (even though not entirely English speaking), Australia, British New Zealand, Briton, Hawaii (included in late 1955), Cuba (included early 1956 because of the overwhelming majority of English speakers left from Americas/NAR's operations there), and finally South Africa.
- This ironically polarizes many powers in the world to make their own alliances.
- Asia becomes more united with out Russia involved.
- Africa follows suite and start to contemplate an alliance of their own.
- South America is still real-ling from the war, but decided to join Mexico and whatever they decide to make a better defense
- Europe begins to destabilize as Neo-Rome tries to hold on and it looks as if this could be where another war is going to be fought soon, one that engulfs the world.
- Russia, along with Tibet, India, and Republic of Mecca (loosely) form a Defense pact.
The newly elected president of the Federated Nations of the Anglosphere embarks on a world wide tour of the nation. He speaks before tens of thousands in Australia and then on to Nairobi. As he leaves eastern Africa crossing the Mediterranean, his airplane lands in Nice for a layover.
As he steps from the public bathroom, he is shot and killed by Jean-Luc du Pont, a disgruntled half English, half French man who blames the English and especially the North Americans for wasting Europe's chances for greatness. The man is not entirely sane after all. He is hidden by a small group of extremists who claim to be the protectors of the "real King of Burgundy," who claims to be a descendant of Jesus Christ himself.
The FNA calls all its nations on high alert. The President of the American Republic and the new Acting president of the FNA demand the repatriation of du Pont. The request is denied. Tensions rise.
Meanwhile, the FNA restarts the old NAR space program, and send an unmanned probe to the moon. Luna I is the first man-made object on the moon.
An economic boom hits the world as stock markets across the planet sky rocket, almost everyone's average salary is doubled in this decade.
- The USWE succeeds in its lifelong goal and is able to unify the continent of Africa and forms the USA (United States of Africa), they become the richest and most prosperous nation in the world and gain there first overseas territory as they annex the island of Sri Lanka.
- Ireland fears England's power may grow to much, they invade England in an attempt to re-annex the nation, but they fail and are only able to gain Wales.
The Neo-Roman Empire now consists only of the Italian peninsula. The Consul's personal guard, tired of his abuse of power, launch a coup and kill the Consul. The new Neo-Roman Republic sues for peace. The French, Boers, Iberians and Dalmatians accept. The terms to the treaty are simple. The Neo-Romans acknowledge each power's territorial gains (FraNce gets former european France, the Boers get their former European territory, the Dalmatians get their conquests and the Iberians get the rest of former Spain)
The victorious Dalmatians invade and conquer the weak and feeble remains of the Republic of Mecca (although the citizens have started calling it "Persia" years ago). To quell any protests to the invasion they renounce claims to further territorial expansion. The proud Dalmatians move their capital to the recently renamed Constantinople as they rename their nation the Byzantine Empire. Considering who invaded them only a few short years ago this is a very ironic move indeed, and as such has risen more than a few eyebrows. (Yhis makes sense).

- Africa, afraid it might become the playground for the next war, unit and forms the African Imperial Confederacy (each nation is like a state, only without military, which is put under the jurisdiction of the Imperial court) and sign a defense pact with UCNSA.
- The colonies being open rebellion against their government as they want to join the AIC.
- Lines begin to be drawn in the sand, as each nation prepares for total war. It is said by many of these new alliances that if your nation is not part of an alliance/confederacy/union, then it is guaranteed to be a battleground, as you would have none to help you.
Those who had protested North American policies realize the errors of their ways and become the loudest critics of the Russian invasion. Soon the North Americans rally round the flag and and the Russians are soon expelled from Alyeska.
NAU sends two shuttles to the moon establishing a space station and a third to launch a group to Mars. Unfortunately, the Russians shoot down the rocket. Popular opinion reaches a crescendo and a bombing raid of Moscow is begun. The Kremlin is destroyed as is the Russian Parliament building complex. Thousands die in the resulting conflagration.
- The NAU launches a second group of shuttles, two of which are carrying the supplies necessary for the establishment of a colony on the Moon. the Russians again attempt to shoot them down, but SDI satellites equipped which had been launched in secret and only recently brought online, knock the Russian missiles out of the sky. the NAU settlement on the moon is built without a hitch. in addition, the settlement begins harvesting He-3 from the lunar far side, which is sent back to earth for experimentation into the creation of a clean fusion reactor.
- Australia, in the early morning of September 5th, launch an invasion of the Maori kingdom and end up taking it over by the end of the year. It is put under martial law, in order to ensure peace in the region.
- Hawaii joins the NAU, which leads UCNSA (United Confederated Nations of South America) to get Panama, which was left to the Panamanians. The Panamanians think of the acquisitions a mutual agreement between governments.
- Russian forces attack the most eastern part of the Oriental Empire, but they also make gains in the east along a broad open line.
- The rebellions in Africa are mostly successful after two years, as barely any help from the colonies home nation. Only two colonies remain, which have been severely depleted and also warn from war. These two colonies are split in two as they retreat to protect the coastal areas, when help Finally starts to arrive, all-be-it to late as he more inland half gets annexed into the Imperial African.
- NAU successfully establishes a more secure/permanent base on the moon; this base has a Biosphere an everything needed for a permanent settlement on the moon. NAU astronaut Neil Armstrong (about 13 years older then OTL, I believe) plants a NAU flag on Mars accompanied by "Let me not be the last NAU man to walk on this most beautiful of sites". They establish a small operations base able to withstand the harsh weather on mars, which they tend to report back makes everything here a lot harder and longer to do, so many NAU scientist begin work on a way to control Martian weather. (only the military scientists go as far as how to control any weather period.)
- Russia by the end of the year begins peace talks with Oriental empire. They also spark an alliance with EU, but it is for any future endeavors, not for the war they are in now.
- In December of his year a small, clean burning, He-3 reactor is goes online and they celebrate their achievement. This also leads them to try out a new National He-3 reactor, which (in theory) would be able to power one-fourth of the country, thus it is set u in the north western part of NAU, near Alaska. This project is code named "Zeus's Bolt" (because of the energy involved).
- They also use a new type of double hauled battleship that looks like two battleships with their upper deck's combined, this is shared with Oriental Empire, the UCNSA, and the EU nations, (tier close allies).
- The European Union concludes and ratifies the long sought after political unification treaty in Nancy, France. Europa is born, capitol in Amsterdam. The Special Territory of Greenland experiences riots and instability; the Inuit population proclaim the desire to unite with their cousins in northern North America, but the ruling class refuses to acquiesce. High alert is proclaimed as the Russians push the eastern border.
- NAU invade the Russian Far East to have a buffer between the belligerent Russians and its homeland. They do not interfere with the Oriental Empire.
- the occupied Maori Kingdom explodes into a full scale insurgency. Car Bombs, Snipers, Mortar attacks and kidnappings roll all across the North Island. Support is secretly sent from the South island to aid the Insurgency.
NAU loses all land in Russia, but starts a strong front and invades the Caribbean and Mexico.
- The European Union starts to loose control over Greenland as terrorist cells activate and start to reek havoc all across the country, they send some military up their to send a clear massage, "we are not going to let you be annexed into the NAU".
- Russia and the EU settle their differences and things calm down on the eastern front, and they become a strong alliance like the NAU and Oriental Empire. Arabia invades the Oriental Empire to help Russia, and with that a peace treaty is send by all three powers which gives away Turkey to Russia and some of the other middle eastern holding to the Arabians.
- Maori Kingdom becomes whole again and signs a defense pact with the mighty Oriental Empire; this send a clear massages to the Australians, which in turn sign one with the EU, but this does not go into effect until Greenland is brought under control, and it will not help with any war that Australia has before then.
- Australia begins to lose all control over Madagascar as rebellions break out, which want to join their main land counterparts. This interest the African Imperial Confederacy (AIC), which lands an invasion force. By then most of the troops on the island have been evacuated to better defend the homeland, but fighting continues.
- NAU wins the war with Mexico, and annexes the northern half; many NAU people believe it was for the best of the Mexicans and stay united. With that in mind, the UCNSA invades the Central American Republic and annexes it into itself; many of the native people in that country reluctantly unite under the UCNSA flag.
- Mexico & Cuba become allies and form the Central Defense Nations, they also unify their armies and make a new flag.
- The NAU's SDI defense system detects a Russian missile launch and fires, it destroys the missile. It was then saw that the missile was headed towards the Russian landing zone on the moon, but the Russians never give any more information than it being a pace pod, many people doubt this because of the fact that the missile was highly radioactive and had a different projector y then the Russians are saying. Tensions rise.
- In this year, the British who had been plotting without NAU knowledge to escape the 'turmoil of the Earth' for some time, put their plan into action. Thousands of stolen and rejigged rockets were stuffed with settlers and equipment. The first rocket, the Ark led the way past NAU and Russian defence systems. The Americans were astonished, the Russians and their allies cackled maliciously and the various unaligned blocs cheered them on. The now sparsely populated Britain was subject to an American invasion in Scotland and a European invasion in the south. The remainder nations fought against them.
- Greenland finally joined the NAU.
- Madagascar joins the African Imperial Confederacy.
- The remaining free African territories, take on the names, New France and New Sweden respectively.
- Apiata Rutherford, the son of Wiremu Rutherford, begins work on a new Super weapon called the 'Sun Bomb', a hydrogen based Atomic Bomb with the capacity to unleash megatonnes of destruction.
- The EU starts preparations for a colony on the moon. The plan is to place it near Russian land.
- EU are almost ready, when a radical British terrorist cell attacks the launch station delaying it for a year.
- NAU only strengthens their border in Old England, as it is now called. The EU struggle against the restless native populism which have formed a small new nations called "The Left-Behinds".
- Earth remains e-rally quite as the nations that have holdings on the moon strengthen and grow their colonies.
- NAU, Oriental Empire, and UCNSA also send an orbital habitat to Mars. This in preparations to terraform the planet, as the scientist have stated that they should have a working model within a year. Their alliance grows in strength.
- "Zeus's Bolt" is activated with a small hitch, that is fixed quickly. This news get released to the world so all attention turns to the only known place to gather the He-3 required; The Moon.
- On the moon: NAU colonies work on an underground subway line that can travel from colony to colony, they also set up a defense perimeter around their colonies, other nations soon follow.
- On the moon: Oriental Empire strengthens their borders, but also sets up an agreement with NAU to work together to connect all of their colonies and share, through trade, the He-3 they gather. NAU trades the He-3 reactor tech to the Oriental Empire for their treaty that stats that neither nation can use more then a one megaton explosion on the moon at a time, thus coordination with the connecting teams comes into effect.
- On the moon: more "Ark" craft arrive from the NAU, Oriental Empire and Russia; six (NAU), three (OE) and one (Russia) respectively.
- Dashed lines on the moon are the tunnel networks, the Square lines are the defense perimeters.
The EU and NAU agree on a common border between European Britain and Scotland. It is agreed that the Orkney and Shetland island groups, the island of Mann and the Faroes all belong to NAU while the Channel islands, the Azores and the Isle of Wight all belong to the Europeans.
Tensions are beginning to rise on Earth where the citizens of many countries, such as the NAU, are complaining that all of the government's money is going to the moon. This causes strife between the people of North America, and in Europe, it becomes clear that there is some sort of movement growing in Corsica ...
- With the election in NAU over, a new charismatic leader appears which start to re-invest a large portion of the moon colony's money to civilian care. This swiftly save the nation from an civil disruption/war. Oriental Empire soon follows suet.
- Russia and the EU, however, disregard them as just normal protest and continue their funding of the moon colony's.
- Soon, AIC launches a manned mission to Venus. This ends in tragedy as the space craft is crushed as it enters the atmosphere. They stop and do new scientific research in how to make Venus SOMEWHAT habitable. (They want Venus for their own and don't want to have to share it with the other nations).
- All of the subway tunnels are completed on the moon and soon they passengers start arriving to go to each colony ... sorta like a cruise of the moon.
- The NAU and EU make a break through in controlling cloud cover and rain. Oriental Empire makes a break through in controlling the harsh winds of Mars. They plan to launch a new satellite network around Mars with the goal of Martian Weather Control in mind.
- EU finally arrives on the moon with a small colony.
- A disaster strikes late this year in the Russian colony, when a He-3 reactor explodes. This send large one-eighth Manhattan sized moon-orites towards earth. As they try to destroy most of them, the satellite defenses detect a larger piece headed towards Yaginstollica (small Russian town on the border of EU). They try in vain to destroy it, but it is to big and they only manage to make it worse by smashing it into several DOZEN smaller 1/20th size Manhattan pieces.
- When the smoke clears after the impact, EU and western Russia is left in ruins. Millions flee to their colony or easterly. One-third of their combined governments are destroyed. The Russian colony is gone along with a good chunk of the moon.
- One hits the northern part of Arabia and one also manages to hit the western region in the Oriental Empire,
- An international effort begins to try to restore balance to the regions, but they face heavy resistance.
- The clouds left by the impacts lower the world temperature by one degree, and if you don't know it, that is a lot. This causes some crops to not grow in Arabia, Oriental Empire and NAU & UCNSA. NAU and the UNCSA, however, had a lot of food stored up from a fear of global thermonuclear war, and thus are spared the worse, although they still have to deal with riots every so often.
- Striped areas on Earth equals lawless zones, and gray equals impact cite. The blacked out are on one of NAU's colony is heavily damaged, and I spray painted the area on which the creator where the explosion of a medium-large He-3 power play was.
This is called the year with no summer. Storms rage across the northern hemisphere leaving many cities buried in meters of snow and ice. No crops are planted much less harvested. Snow falls in Jerusalem, Cairo, New Delhi, Hanoi and Mexico City. Not just flurries, but feet and feet of drifts. Scientist feel that the weather will improve in the next two years. Many, many people in the European and Russian lawless zones die of cold and starvation. Refugees swarm across the borders in to Asia.
On the moon, the NAU and Asian bases manage to create a self-sustaining economic base with the help of the other bases. Refugees of the other bases are given assistance and help. A new business: Lunasat begins. They build Solar Power Satellites. These are built on the Moon of moon materials and because of the lesser gravity, shipped into Earth Orbit at a cheaper rate than from the Earth. They convert sunlight into radio waves which is beamed to the earth and converted to electricity. The satellites go on line in time to help warm up the shivering masses in the Northern Hemisphere. Lunasat then plans to sell cheap power to the rest of Earth so that fossil fuels can be phased out and petroleum can be used for plastics only.
After the success of Lunasat, the NAU launches several dozen satellites from magnetic accelerators on the moon, towards the sun. these spacecraft unfold in orbit around Mercury, creating the largest solar array in history. the solar energy accumulated by this array =is enough to power several cities
- With most of Europe and a swathe of Asia knocked out a new age begins. The European Union is dissolved and the nations of France, Cornwall, Wessex, Mercia, Wales, Bernicia, Deira, Castile, Sweden, Italy and Greece are reborn. Separating them is a vast swathe of wasteland.
- Sweden is by far the most powerful nation in Europe and secures the European colonies on the moon for itself.
- On the moon, the British settle farther into the hills as water develops in the craters after many years of careful nurturing of the land in a process known as terraforming.
- The Ethiopian Emperor who has been under house arrest in Africa for calling for independence is transported to the Moon where he is crowned King of the Britons.
- Countries in Europe and Asia begin to take back the land devastated by the disaster from the moon accident.
- German refugees return to the former site of the country Germany and restore the country; Greek, Yugoslavian, Spanish and Polish begin to restore their countries
- Countries not devastated by the disaster send money and supplies to their allies who were devastated and help them rebuild.
- During the He-3 Accident, an American who moved to Russia at the age of three, Arnold Schelnist was never killed for his town never got hit (he was 33 years old at that time), it is also learned that he was working on a planet terraforming device which he has now finished thanks to sufficient supplies.
- The Planet Terraforming device shocks the world when Mars is made inhabitable, red grass grows, reddish-brown trees with red leaves develop, a red sky begins to form, red water spouts from the ground.
- Arnold is made a celebrity everywhere he goes.
- Venus is finally terraformed by the Russians who before failed in colonizing it.
- Operation "Red Sun" begins, the operation is actually the colonization of Mars by the NAU.
On the moon, many people start pushing from succession from their countries, due to the fact that many of the moon colonists have the same culture due to the lack of difference on the moon. Others want to start the "Republic of Luna", a moon-based country which, if it existed, would have a population of three million.
On Earth, the African region is starting to revolt into violence, as the area of Egypt pushes to become its own country, as well as former South Africa.
The moon colonists declare the independence of the Republic of Luna, reminding the Earth that nearly all of their electricity comes from Lunar solar power satellites and if they want to purchase it, they'll acquiesce; they do.
NAU begins colonizing Mars in earnest, trying to move as much of their population off world as possible. Little does the NAU government know, but most of the new Martians have moved off Earth to get away from the Fascist NAU government. Life is freer if more difficult on the Red Planet. Unfortunately it is a nine month journey to Mars and the older Martian settlers are not sympathetic to the Johnny-come-lately's.
Overtures are made toward a universal, pan-human government. The majority of the Earth governments love the idea, none of the extra-terrestrials do.
THE YEAR OF REFORMATION
- As NAU arrives on Mars, they begin to change their government to fit the new world, thus becoming the United Martian Democracy. this new government set up Terra-forming devices in hopes of making it a more stable and reliable ecosystem, as the earlier attempt ended in a month due to "unforeseen consequences".
- The NAU people left on Earth form a new government called The Democratic-Republic of Terra, or DRT for short. The continental American governments join, not because of safety, but because of the fact that they too wish to unite the world.
- Many European nations join them as well. This sends shocks through the world of Russia and Oriental Empire, the latter of which decides to join out of respect for the old Earthbound NAU.
- Some in the Oriental Empire leave and join the new Martian government.
- DRT decides late in the year to start to implement the stores of He-3 into reactors so they do not have to deal with the Republic of Luna's high demands.
- The United Martian Democracy also sees fit to start capitalizing on its closeness to the asteroid belt and plans get under way to start mass mining of the belt, with limited mining of the moons.
- The reaming Earth governments make a defense pact in an effort to withstand DRT. They call their new alliance, Global Defense Initiative or GDI for short (because that is what they would call themselves).
THE NEW COLD WAR
- Each nation begins to ready themselves for anything.
- DRT test its new defense system called Thor's hammer (Kinetic strike cannon, a modified version of the SDI satellites).
- GDI test a new more compact high explosive. the test proves successful and they call it Pandora's Box, as it uses a small amount of He-3 to explode.
- UMD test a new long range weapons system that explodes about 400,000 km away from Venus, near earth. It says it was an accident but many nations believe otherwise.
- RoL test a new high powered solar weapon nick named "God's Wrath".
- In December both GDI and RoL make a formal alliance, manly because GDI still gets a large percentage of its power from the Luna satellites. DRT, now only gets 25% of its power from RoL after it launches more solar arrays around Venus and Mercury. They also get around 20% of their power from the OLD He-3 reactors that NAU left.
- DRT and the United Martian Democracy agree to a defense pact against any aggression that the GDI/RoL may take.
The first space elevator touches down in the DRT province of Ecuador, giving the DRT a cheap, efficient means of transportation into orbit. trade with the UMD increases by an order of magnitude, and the UMD begins construction of a similar elevator on Mars. the DRT economy flourishes due to an influx of cheap metals from the asteroid belt
Hackers from RoL break into the computer systems running the DRT space elevator transport system in Ecuador. They siphon funds and contracts to their allies in the GDI. Tensions rise between the two power blocks. Australia Province of GDI finishes its space elevator in the former Northern Territories. An Asteroidal shipment from UMD goes off course and crash lands on uninhabited Lunar territory. This creates quite the scare. Militaries all over the solar system are on high alert.
Having ineptly placed their space elevator, GDI leaders are shocked when their cable collapses. they manage to separate the upper two-thirds with an orbital laser, but the damage is done. A large swath of Australia is devastated, and the GDI space program is set back a decade.
- King Artorius who ascends his pretender throne this year campaigns first for recognition of the large British community on the Moon. When this is refused he sells much of his royal finery such as palaces, robes and crowns. He uses the vast sums of money to purchase cryogenic freezing units, terraforming devices and large rocketry systems. They are put into the Ark of Britannia After a year of construction in the former British sector of the Republic of Luna, the Ark is complete and the British people flee from an overarching regime once more to the moons of Jupiter. The British name is now synonymous with the frontier, adventure and the will to survive on the one hand but also stubbornness, cowardliness and imperialistic on the other. A trickle of British from the worlds of humanity make their way to the capital of New London on Europa. King Artorius is crowned with a circlet of copper King of the Seventh Kingdom of All Britain.
- RoL and DRT go to war over the British Exodus. The DRT resent the loss of citizens from the former Britain and blame it on the harsh laws of the RoL. Luna believes the DRT encouraged the British to leave and that it was them who sold the British the equipment necessary for their exodus.
- The GDI finally construct their space elevator correctly. They make the mistake of applauding the British in their determination to avoid the power struggles of the core worlds.
RoL, using its magnetic accelerators, launches several 1 km rocks at DRT. Several cities are hit directly: New York loses Manhattan, Chicago becomes a bay on Superior, Los Angeles is hit which sets off the big earthquake on the San Andreas and Niagara Falls is hit resulting in two very difficult situations for DRT: when Lake Erie empties into Lake Ontario, it first inundates Toronto, then washes it to the middle of Lake Ontario. Then as the water hits the downstream side of Lake Ontario, it washes out the natural barrier of that lake, emptying the water of both lakes into the St Laurence river, leaving the ruined cities on Lake Ontario high and dry and washing the cities of Montreal and Quebec out to sea.
This is a regional difficulty. The impacts are not enough to disrupt weather patterns of all of Earth like the infalls did in 1984.
Mars applauds the efforts of Luna and sign several economic and military pacts with them.
- GDI resents the attack made on earth and breaks it alliance with RoL, thus forming a new alliance with DRT. This is made not because they are on friendly terms, but because they both want no more harm (extraterrestrial or other) to come to earth. (GDI figures if it is going to unite the world under the GDI banner they might want to protect what they want to conquer).
THE FINAL DAYS OF EARTH
- DRT and GDI launch co-op invasions of RoL. This is unexpected by RoL and thus they are not really prepared in ALL their colonies. RoL loses five of its, now, 55. These five, however, control water and air filters for four each, so the sum total of lost colonies is 25; a little under half. They quickly tighten the security at the other control station, which is the capital, and set up a perimeter around the 25 colonies.
- RoL calls for its Martian ally (UMD), with no reply. This is first answered with anger, because of no reply in the first month, but soon they pick up some large objects head their way, which hail the capital's HQ and announces they are newly constructed UMD ships and says that they are sorry they could not come earlier, but they were still under-construction a four months ago, in fact for over three years now they have been trying hard to complete them with all the safeties and weapons, thus it took an additional four months longer then it should have.
- UMD sends marines done to the five landing colonies and captures three, but loses a ship from a missile launch Luna side, it was found to be launched from the one of the captured RoL colonies. The other ship fires multiple WMD's at Earth in response, 95 are destroyed before entry, 34 in high atmosphere, but still so many where launched that some made land fall. Some of these sites are Beijing, Moscow, Washington D.C., Madrid, San Francisco, Paris, Havana, London, Mumbai, Bankock, etc... and then over 30 cities where hit with at least one each; 20 WMD's hit transforming factories, making it impossible for earth to manufacture enough to stabilize even 1/10,000th of the earth surface. The ship has no weapon ammunition left for long range strikes and would have to go sub-orbital to attack Earth any more. (amount hit = roughly 65 WMD's)
- RoL, surprised by this action, request that the ship leave orbit and not launch any more attacks against earth (RoL also wishes to conquer their old home-world). The UMD ship withdraws, but leaves a sizable force on Luna to help RoL; RoL thanks them and tells them that they shall not lose many men.
- The DRT-GDI alliance is hurt from the attack and wishes to recall it soldiers in order to launch "Omega Luna 1"; this weapon would drill into the core of Luna and set off a 20,000 Megaton explosion. This is the last gasping/dying breath of a planet that is now in the mist of a nuclear winter caused by the UMD attack.
- Toward the end of the year RoL-UMD alliance is winning massively over DRT-GDI alliance. This cause them to launch "Omega Luna 1" from a space shuttle that managed to make it through the detection of RoL scanners and into a sub-orbit of Luna. The weapon is launched, but hits a hitch and now has a three-month schedule until core explosion. RoL see's hit, but knows it is to late to do anything because of the extremly fast drilling mechanize m used by Omega Luna 1, so it chooses a complete evacuation of Luna. The date is November 30th.
- RoL, wishing to avoid the nuclear winter, ask UMD for permission to set up a non-permanent base on Mars.UMD, with support of the public and military, say that they wish them the best of luck on Earth, as they only wished to have annihilated the DRT-GDI alliance before this could happen, but under RoL's request could not. RoL swears revenge and starts to attack the UMD military on Luna as well as trying to evacuate to another planet, or at least another planetary to orbit.
- UMD begins a massive defensive build up now that the only other people to look after are the Seventh Kingdom of All Britain, or Seventh Kingdom for short. They also work out a treaty with the Seventh Kingdom, allowing 65% of the outer solar system to Seventh Kingdom and 75% (cause of the massive number of NT's [Need to be Terraformed] planets) of the inner solar system to UMD.
- The Seventh Kingdom also begins a massive defensive build up.
- UMD and SK start trade and colonization with one another, both shooting down any GDI, DRT, or RoL ships they cross.
- UMD completes its space elevator, and then starts new programs (mostly for propaganda purposes) to help communities all over mars. The date is December 24.
- Gray areas on earth equal nuke zones; dark red on Luna = UMD forces; Omega Luna 1 drill zone = Black
Yes, Earth may be gone (for the most part), but humanity lives on
- Britain declares that the war was the confirmation that the unification of humanity is a foolish and impossible thing to do. "All sides wanted to unite the human race and it lead very nearly to their destruction. Now we are the only nation not to get involved emerge the strongest." Alongside this, Britain sets about setting up survivor states on other moons such as France on Io, Spain on Ganymede, America on Callisto and Italy on Enceladus.
- The UMD's military build-up worries the SK and research goes into the creation of the Starship UK. Scientists all over Britains empire work on the theoretical potential of faster than light speed. Asteroids are clumped together to form the vast hull of what the UMD calls the "latest baroque escape attempt to come from British minds".
- The UMD begins 'harvesting' the population of Earth and the Moon in order to bolster their population spread thin by colonisation of Mars.
- Some European Governments (Britain, Spain, France, Italy) plus America and Mars start building the HSS "Humanity", an artificial planet that has oxygen productors, food, water, making an artificial planet that can survive alone for five million years.
The HSS humanity leaves, leaving only a million people to make the Confederation of Earth which the capital is Seoul.
The Confederation of Earth begins building The Eagle, a space ship designed to carry 5000+ nuclear warheads. They plan to use it on the RoL and the UMD for destroying much of the Earth. It will be completed in 2003.
The Confederation of Earth supplies a terrorist organization called Fist, which will cause destruction on the Moon and on Mars.
- The Fist hacks into the United Martian Democracy's computer system and shuts down everything considered 'life support'. A significant percentage of the UMD's population is killed.
The New Era of Mass Scientific Programs
- The Alliance of Intelligent Species Lovers (I couldn't think of anything better than that silly name) is created from volunteers from The Confederation of Earth (CoE) and starts a program called Evolution. AI (as The Alliance of Intelligent Species Lovers is called) designs another artificial planet, planet EvolutionAI, similar to the biblical Ark. It contains a vast array of animals and plants that were on Earth before humans started creating human settlements, quite a few are biologically recreated. No humans are allowed to live on it and by the end of 2000 it is set to launch in early 2001.
- The United Labs of Luna 1 are created by the CoE in North Canada away from the rest of human society. The use the blueprints of Omega Luna 1 and start to drill in order to make a network of underground cities that will be protected from any future attacks by UMD.
- Also Massive TerraDomes are built by the CoE as another defense against any attack on Earth by UMD or RoL.
- By the end of 2000, the MSP (Mass Scientific Programs) is set to be a success. UMD is in chaos because of the attacks by the Fist.
- UMD is swallowed whole by the newly founded Confederation of Extraterrestrial Alliance; this alliance is made up of all the countries that were around Jupiter, they also have a large scientific advantage over CoE because of the fact that they have not been hit by any real threats, so able to expand their scientific programs.
- CoE launches EvolutionAI late this year due to unforeseen shortfalls. The shipe launches at 90% complete. The only things that remain are some species.
- The terrorist that once bothered UMD, now bother the CEA, so in an effort to stop all terrorist activities they begin to crack down on all firearms and hacker stations across the UMD. This is extremely successful as the UMD did nothing in this line of enforcement to stop the terrorist, and by the end of the year ALL terrorist cells in the old UMD are eradicated.
- CoE and CEA begin to separate projects in order to colonize outside the solar system. CEA's is called Union Supreme and the CoE's is called Terra Uno. Both projects are set to launch in three years.
- By the end of the year CoE and CEA have come to a formal agreement to not fight each other and instead do open trade, this becomes commonly known as the end of human strife and the beginning of an enlightenment of humanity as neither nation wishes war with one another.
- All educational and scientific fields explode with the trade of new ideas and science's becomes more free.
The Republic of Luna signs an alliance with the CoE and the CEA.
The construction of the Eagle ends as there is no need to attack people.
Save Our Earth project begins. It is designed to rebuild more cities, save the environment, and bring the population back up.
The first section of the underground cities in Canada is completed.
- The Seventh Kingdom, apalled at the utter destruction of Mars, declares war against the CEA. They realize that the CEA is a threat to their territories in the outer solar system.
- The CoE begins talks with the CEA, the CoE doesn't want another war that will tear more countries apart.
- In the United Human State Act the CoE agrees to send a ship to start negotiations with the Seventh Kingdom trying to create a united government that will bring all humanity together into one nation.
- November 13, 2003 Humanity the Nation is created from the RoL, CoE, CEA, and the Seventh Kingdom.
There are four branches of government in Humanity the Nation: Earth, Luna, Britain, and Extraterrestial.
- The Extraterrestial Branch is created to colonize the rest of the solar system and beyond, headqarters are created in the Asteroid Belt.
- The Earth Branch is created to finish Save the Earth project and to manage the largest concentration of humans in the solar system, headquarters are created in the new underground city named Eden.
- The Britain Branch is created to control all trade and scientific processes concerning the future of humanity, headquarters are created on Io.
- The Luna Branch is created to manage all of the now federal government processes that concern the humans not living on Earth.
Every branch has an elected leader. Every citizen in Humanity the Nation has a vote and votes for each of the branch's presidents.
- By December 31, 2003 there are still some kinks and Humanity isn't yet functional.
The Humanity the Nation becomes the United States of the Universe and makes all of Australia a wildlife reserve and ban gas.
- USU begins project 'Eden Prime', the goal of which is to colonize the closest solar system. There was a slight spike in terrorist activities but they were quickly put out (most of it happened on earth).
- USU decides to call most of earth a wildlife preserve in order to make sure that humans to start to destroy it again. The areas not included in the Wild Preservation Act of 2004 are the USA's old East coast, South Africa, Southern Britain, Southern Coast of France, A small 100-mile strip of the Balkans, and some of the more Major Metropolitan cities are made into dome-cities in order to protect the environment around them.
- By the end of the year, most of the people that were once scattered across the Earth have clustered either in the dome-cities or have left earth. The food and water is kept clean and fresh through advanced filtration and growing sectors of the cities, primaraly out of sight from the ordinary citizen.
- Doug, a man from the defunct UMD begins a one-man war with the USU for destroying the UMD.
- Some things he did do were blow up a cargo ship, blow up the Britain Branch HQ on Io, and terrorize citizens in the dome cities.
- About 500 people died from his crimes.
- Unbeknownst to the rest of the USU, the Britain Branch has continued construction of the Starship UK. In the face of Dougs attacks, they use the Starship UK's weapons to destroy him. The revelation of the Starships existence shocks the human community. The Extraterrestrial Branch condemns the Britain Branch for constructing something which is technically in their jurisdiction. For this reason, the Starship UK prepares to leave.

- All warring factions suddenly decide to unite under a single government and all past arguments are forgotten instantly.
- Russia takes a surprise attack and launches missiles at Scotland, causing another World War.
The other nations of Earth launch a nuclear strike back at Russia, destroying the country. To make sure this doesn't occur again, the remaining Earth nations unite to form the United States of Earth, and Russia is annexed and occupied. The new USE begins to recolonize/colonize outer space, starting with the beginning of terraforming Venus. The great monster is shot with a dozen thousand nuclear missiles, and utterly defeated, when it breaks apart, Luna and Venus reappeared.
The USE finally terraforms Venus, and colonists begin to be sent to the planet. The Eagle is restarted up, and completed at the end of the year; it carries 10,000 nuclear missiles. Five more Eagles begin construction. The first Eagle is sent to Mars. After a threat to wipe out the planet with nukes is made, it is handed over by the UMD, and the USU is declares dissolved by the four branches. The USE and UMD are then united to form the United Planets of Humanity, which the Venus colonies soon join as a full member.
