Introduction

The year is 2040. It's been 10 years since the end of World War 3. Unlike the fears of the late 20th and early 21st century, it wasn't total thermonuclear annihilation (except in the case of India and Pakistan). It was a devastating, yet, conventional war. There were fronts on every inhabited continent in the world, except Australia. Like every war, there were 2 major sides. The Entente, and the Brussels-Beijing pact. This domino effect that killed over 730 million people worldwide started from the death of one man. President Donald J Trump.





Timeline Of Events


The Prelude To Global War
December 2019: America was more politically polarized than ever. Impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump are in full swing. The Republicans are doing whatever they can to stop the impeachment. The Democrats are doing whatever they can to Impeach the President. The house votes to impeach him. He is not removed from office however.

January 2020: Bushfires rage across Australia. An Iranian General is killed in Baghdad, sparking concerns about a potential war against Iran. All American civilians in Iraq start returning to America. Calls to impeach the president by the left are growing. An outbreak of Coronavirus ravages Wuhan. The Senate Trial of Trump begins.

February 2020: On February 7th, President Donald J Trump is assassinated by an Iranian agent disguised as a reporter during a conference in the white house press room regarding the impeachment trial. A large state funeral is held. Since he was in the midst of his impeachment, a power vacuum is left in the oval office. The question becomes, who will take over? Vice President Mike Pence, or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? This new political power struggle would last for 2 months, with no acting President in that time.

April 2020: This power struggle has gone on for 2 months when the Supreme Court finally gets involved. The Democrats argue that Mike Pence was involved in the Ukrainegate scandal, and should not become president. The Republicans argue that the impeachment only concerned the President, while the line of succession should have the Vice President take the presidency. The Supreme Court rules in favor of the Republicans. Mike Pence is sworn into office on April 28th. Most Democrats are extremely unhappy with Mike Pence taking the oval office. Protests occur in Washington DC. That's when some state governments start to plan something drastic. Secession from the Union.

The Aftermath
And so, the world moved on. The soldiers who survived returned to their families and countries. The treaty of New York had brought the largest shift in Geopolitics in history. Nations were devastated by the death toll and damage to infrastructure. An entire generation was almost obliterated by the war. But the world moved on. Here's what happened in the decade after the war.


2030-2035: The Republican party holds political hegemony in the US. No party has yet emerged to fill the gap left by the fall of the Democrats. The US returns to isolationism in order to repair infrastructure and the economy. America's territory in Canada officially becomes 9 new US States. A series of large-scale reforms occur in the Media and Academia in an attempt to make America less politically polarized. The reconstruction of Jacksonville begins in 2033. Russia renames itself to the 'Eurasian Federation'. A series of economic reforms occur in North Korea, turning it into a capitalist (but still totalitarian) society over the next 5 years. India and Pakistan are still in complete ruin. Nepal and Bhutan now have more Indian refugees than actual citizens. China has gone from the 2nd largest economy in the world, to an unimportant backwater where radical ideologies start to spring up. In an important UN meeting, a decision is reached to ban all nuclear weapons. In Europe, all sorts of political ideologies start to gain incredible popularity. Monarchists win elections in Germany, and Georg Friedrich Prince of Prussia is declared as 'Kaiser'. Socialists win elections in Spain, Greece, and Flanders. Nationalist parties win elections across Eatsern Europe.

2035-Present: Technocrats, Libertarians, and Democratic Socialists get several electoral votes each in the 2036 US elections. Chinese politics becomes divided between Neo-Maoists, Fascists, and Liberals. The Eurasian Federation faces political divide between Conservatives, Communists, Ultranationalists, and Orthodox Theocrats. North Korea faces a succession crisis in 2037 after Kim Jong Un dies of an undiagnosed liver disease. A failed coup occurs against the Saudi Arabian monarchy. Spain descends into civil war in 2038 between Socialists and Monarchists. Nationalists win elections in the Netherlands. Small nations pop up out of former India and Pakistan as radiation levels start to decrease to safe levels. Sri Lanka violates the treaty of New York and attempts to colonize parts of South India. Radical Islamists seize control of East Turkestan. Radiation levels in the Pyrenees and the Rhine finally decrease to safe levels.


The Present:
It is now the year 2040. The world has changed significantly in the last 20 years. But humanity never changes. Geopolitics never change. The world is a delicate balance of powers. But anyone, at anytime, could change that. Anyone with enough power could throw the world into chaos and war once more. Will history repeat itself? Will there be a World War 4? Or, will there be peace and prosperity?

It is New Years Day in Anatolia. People are cheering, as a new year has passed. People are happy with this, as it marks the 120th anniversary of the Turkish nation. But, alas, they will never forget the shame that WW3 has brought upon them and their nation. Things without Istanbul are just not the same. Split apart among the Greeks, Kurdish, and Armenians, millions of Turkish people apart from their home country, just because of Turkey joining the war. The Anatolian flag stands high above Ankara.

Current news in Anatolia:

Business Subsidization on the Rise in Anatolia
Following the reparations to Greece by Anatolia, we begin projects to raise business subsidization. These projects give the hopes of bringing back the strong Turkish economy that once stood on the world stage.
~Anatol.IA.com


New Years in Anatolia
Its January 1st, and everyone in Anatolia knows what that means. A New-Years Day event is to be held in the large city of Izmir to celebrate this grand day.
~IzmirUnionNews.com


Reparations Complete!
The war reparations to Greece are complete! Although we shall never forget the day of the war and the fall of Istanbul, we must move forward, for it is a new year for the Turkish state.

The forum is a nice place.

    10 Downing Street

    London
    January 2040


    __________________________________

Upon the desk laid dozens of papers, messily set out. At it sat the prime minister, Britain's youngest since the 18th century, Edward Ashleigh. Since his election to Parliament less than nine years ago at the second khaki-coupon election, his career's trajectory had been nothing short of meteoric. But of course the path for a young upstart to do such a thing had been cleared by Dominic Cummings and his sweeping reform of government that had destroyed the old guard - that man's successes were perhaps most obvious in the fact that this northerner was a Conservative, a Tory, like all prime ministers since Brown.

He was in power. And him being in power meant the "liberalists" had every reason to decry the statism and soft authoritarianism of the National Government, the presence of surveillance cameras on every street in London, the restrictions on freedom of speech. All those little things that meant that, despite the Special Relationship and a common language, Britain wasn't really anything like the United States at all. The alignment of the two was nothing but an accident, the result of everything spiralling out of control during the Third World War. Fighting alongside the Americans had in truth only further revealed how different the two countries were from one another.

The Americans had declared abortion, wealth taxes, income taxes above 30% unconstitutional. In Britain, less than 5% of the population "strongly" or "very strongly" opposed abortion. In Britain, well, the window tax had been around since before the United States existed, hadn't it? And, of course, the country had proved open to some of Trump's ideas. In Britain, the top rate of income tax was double that at 60%, what Thatcher had reduced it to when she came to power in 1979. Politically, on all these issues that mattered so much to the Americans they had amended their constitution over them, and even more than just those, the two couldn't be more different.

This was the country the UK had agreed to repeal all tariffs with. This was the country the UK depended on. This was the country that had gone from covertly supporting the Irish Republican Army to backing British rule over all of Ireland. What a foolish move that had been. What did Britain have to show for it? A dead king? No, not just that, also an insurgency the British Army had spent the last decade trying and failing to deal with.

Things had to change.

Pickett stood at an unimpressive 4 feet and ten inches, looking somewhat taller due to the podium he was standing on. The setting of his speech was unimpressive, being at an Irish pub that his father frequents. Wearing a red shirt with a sailor collar and a knee-length skirt, Pickett declared, "Comrades, compatriots! Two centuries and a half ago, our great nation was founded by heroes who fought against the tyranny of the British. Yet, like in all revolutions, usurpers have hijacked their glorious cause for their own ends. In Russia, it was the Bolsheviks. In America, it was the Federalists. Do not be fooled by the Libertarian and Republican claims of being for 'limited government'. They only want a government that socializes losses and privatizes profits in the name of the corrupt, capitalist class!"

On cue, a Redshirt played an audio file of applause and cheering, while the people in the pub were minding their own business. "That is why the gains of the so-called 'economic prosperity' are uneven. The government is tailored to the needs of the corrupt capitalist class! They have sold America to the ni-"

"Shut up ya commie!" a drunken man yelled out, "If you like socialism so much, why not just leave America!"

"I am not for the social-" Pickett tried to speak up before being interrupted again.

"Go back to the South, you racist! I mean, look at this flag," heckler yelled out.

"It looks like a joke!" the heckler continued before burping, "And, your uniforms are ridiculous. Red shirts? It's like you're begging to be shot!"

"T-The red shirt is like that of Garibald-" Pickett tried to say before a milkshake was thrown at his general direction.

"Get out you fascist!" a hooded figure demanded from the direction the milkshake was thrown from. He had several black-clad Antifa flanking him.

"Folks like me were killing Nazis while your kind were in diapers! You fuck off, you n----r-loving cuckold!" Pickett spat in return, several Redshirts who were his personal friends coming to his side.

They refused to budge, instead grabbing whatever objects they can find and chucking them at Pickett and the other Redshirts. From there, the scene devolved into a bar fight, with Redshirts and Antifa fighting each other. Some of them were even veterans of the 2nd American Civil War, on opposing sides. Slurs were chucked along with objects as the brawl grew out of control.

"STOP IT! STOP IT!" the bar-owner cried out in vein.

"See the fake, negroid socialists cry and holler about racism as they ignore the gross inequality that global capital has created!" Pickett spoke from his podium as the Redshirts fought Antifa, "The Tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and their sycophantic scab lackeys! They have taken the Democratic Party from us and ran it down to the ground! Take back socialism from the negro and spic scab! A socialism of liberty, equality, and fraternity! The syndicalism and mutualism of-"

CRASH! A bottle was chucked at Pickett's podium, shattering into pieces.

"PROUDHON! AND, NOT THE SOCIALISM OF LENIN AND TROTSKY! THE BUTCHERS OF KRONSTADT!" Pickett shouted loudly.

"You dare take Proudhon's cause, you fascist?!" an anarchist with a black bandana shouted as he charged Pickett, only to be shoved into the ground by a Redshirt. Pickett, meanwhile, gave up on the speech and fled the scene. He was probably going to be banned from that bar for life.

Tuesday, January 31st, 2040, 8:49 EST, Washington DC, United States of America:

As Joshua Hawley, the forty-eighth President of the United States, prepared to issue his fourth State of the Union address, he found himself, for the first time in months, rather relaxed. Hawley had been a politician for years, and while he felt acutely the weight of the office of the Presidency on his shoulders, he was confident in his ability to give a speech, and relished the opportunity. As his eyes caught upon a portrait of the forty-fifth President of the United States, Donald John Trump, Hawley vividly recalled the day, twenty years ago, when as the junior senator from Missouri, he witnessed Trump's last State of the Union address, a mere three days before he was to die. He recalled how then Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump's speech at the end in the sight of all present. He chuckled quietly, as he recalled being extraordinarily outraged at this event. If only he had known what events were to pass; events which would make this look like a laughable triviality...

Hawley had looked up to President Trump in nearly all things, and today prided himself upon being a continuation of a presidency tragically cut short. His first action as President of the United States had been to push Congress to adopt those pieces of legislation which Trump had pushed for before his death. Some, such as a ban on late-term abortions, were merely symbolic at this point, while others, such as those dealing with healthcare, were more controversial. He struggled to fund the government under the terms of the 29th amendment, which, although he would never admit it publicly, he was suspicious of. He attempted to imitate Trump in foreign affairs as well, a strategy which irritated many allies, but which he found successful nonetheless.

The moment all assembled had been waiting for arrived; the chamber rang with the Sergeant-at-Arms' cry: "Mister Speaker, The President of the United States." President Hawley made his way to the front of the House chamber, shaking hands and greeting legislators as he had so many times before. Speaker of the House Patrick McHenry introduced Hawley in the traditional manner: "Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States," and the forty-eighth president began his speech.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the 126th congress, the State of the Union is strong. My administration is proud to have led these last few years of what has been a decade of peace and prosperity..."

And so Hawley continued, outlining the Second War on Drugs and planned infrastructure programs. Towards the middle of the speech, Hawley declared "Thank God for the 28th amendment!" This was followed by loud applause from the right side of the chamber, while the socialists and technocrats on the left side of the chamber were less than amused. A chant was taken up by the socialists: "Hey, ho hey, it's their vagina, stay away!" Hawley was sorely tempted to call out these socialists for supporting the murder of now-US citizens, but he decided against it, and to instead stick to the speech. The president then moved on to talk about foreign policy. He stated his support for the continuation of the tariff-free policy with the UK, stating that for all intents and purposes of the law, trade with the UK ought be "just like trade with any US state." At this, Vice-President Ron DeSantis grimaced. DeSantis knew that the Special Relationship was not nearly as strong as it had been, and he dreaded possible diplomatic blowback at the UK being referred to as just like another US state, even though that wasn't what Hawley meant. After talking a little about a recent meeting with Japan, in memory of the forty-fifth president, Hawley wrapped up the speech just as Trump had once wrapped up so many speeches: "We will make America strong again, we will make America safe again, and yes, we will Make America Great Again." The Republicans applauded wildly, and many Libertarians joined in.

Catholic Libertarian. Gov't has no authority, all authority is from God. God grants us free will, gov't should not infringe upon it. Legislating morality is wrong. Only exception is protecting rights to life, liberty, and property. Abortion is killing an infant, one of the few things gov't should prevent. Pro-Trump, he's been an effective weapon against real enemies of freedom: The Left, but I wish he were more for free trade, more against deficits. Unrestrained capitalism is a great thing; it does wonders for standards of living of everyone, especially the poor.

Beijing, National People’s Congress
A term of allowance...


“Fellow members of the People’s Congress...” the words of the President of China and Secretary of the CPSP echoed through the room, the thousands of representatives that once inhabited the halls have reached in only the hundreds now, after such a horrible loss and the only way to retain control was to reduce the size of the Congress lest they had a majority of one of the opposition parties. “I wish to thank all of you, for the survival of our nation and though the end of the year of the goat I’d indeed coming closer, we must not look towards the past but to the future. The year of the monkey will be a year for the people, a year for the rebuilding of China. To rebuild the damages that the conflict brought to our doorsteps. The betrayal of all our allies, the mistakes the previous administration made, and to the continued people’s revolution that will never end. As the true power of China is in the hearts of all of you, to restore everything and to bring us back to the world stage as a superpower this nation was meant to be. I thank all of you...” with the final words, everyone in the Congress began to clap, it was a monotone clapping that brought forward no care about the words spoken.

In the back of the Congress, two were clapping frantically, but no one could hear them. “Sir, can you believe what he said? We will rebuild China and make it a superpower again!”

Th other man shook his head, turning away from the younger officer he was next to, indoctrination’s committee needs to lighten up a little with their efforts, “it’s all just lies and empty promises. The president knows he is losing power, especially in the United Front. So he is trying to get the Ultranationalists on his side, the poor fool.”

“But...China will be made a superpower again..right?”

“Trust me, we know it will.”

Secret Base, Central China
A chance...


Within the military installation, which many in the government thought was entirely abandoned after the war was actually the main staging point for the People’s Liberation Army High Command and the Ministry if Internal Security. It was also here where the high command vowed to restore China the way it was meant to be, through soldiers who fought and died with leaders to make those deaths mean something and to change the world, just as Mao did.

But of course, times had changed, “Tell me, what have our men managed to extract from their times within these paramilitary nationalist movements in our nation...” asked one of the generals in the room, “are they a threat? Are they receiving support from within? Tell me!”

The secretary flinched, he hated when they yelled at her, she could only do so much so fast and this was no exception. Trying to get their coffee ready while answering important questions involving the future of the nation and sometimes the world, you’d think it would be easy...which was a joke to think in the first place. In the end, she did was she was told, “What the reports state...is that the..Chinese Nationalist party is funding them...along with many PLA members joining their groups to continue the fight they believe was not lost. One especially got into a high position and learned that they are planning to support nationalist movements in other countries to restore lost territory...they are planning on sending arms and ammunition, including anti-tank weaponry into Inner Mongolia, along with infiltrating officers to train them...”

“So they really are making moves...I must admit I thought nationalists were the extremely loud kind that only yelled with no action. But these men, especially with the difference of Chinese to Mongolians, we should be able to regain our lost lands while once again dominating Mongolia. Sure it will but the Russians at odds, but we can convince members in the National Congress to get them a demilitarized zone between Mongolia and the trans-Siberian. Though I’m sure Russia is too busy caring about Europe to deal with Asia, they are a large nation and don’t want to break their prosperity. They are most likely doing the same in Xinjiang and Yunnan too...them being mostly Han Chinese...we will cause many conflicts across the region. But it will be necessary to restore our nation, I will sign off on the loss of equipment including several tanks and pieces of artillery. I’ll need a direct line to the strategic support services to start hacking into Mongolian systems to get them back up to speed before we try hacking into more high tech systems like in the south, Japan or possibly even Russia or America. We cannot play conventionally anymore, we need to change the paradigm to our favor and then, perhaps we will have a chance.”

New Years in Anatolia

Postby Onfande » Wed Feb 05, 2020 9:32 am

It is 6:00 PM in Izmir. The Sun continues to lower in the sky, below the Horizon. It is time for the Event.

Streets of Izmir, 6:40 PM

It is now Dusk in Izmir. The people gather in the streets to watch this event. The Folkart Towers grow brilliantly with the fall of the Sun. Now, the countdown starts. People wait, and wait, and wait. When the countdown hits 10 seconds, people start to count down the remaining numbers.

10... 9... 8... 7... 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

The fireworks launch, creating a glorious glow, able to be seen from the southern hills. Cheering is heard through all chambers and ways in Izmir. This marks the beginning of the event.

Image

Streets of Izmir, 8:00 PM

The mayor of Izmir comes out in public for the first time in months. People assume that he is still traumatized from the Battle of Izmir.He has guards by his side.

"Hello, my Anatolian friends..." he says with appreciation. "I want to thank you all for being here at this event. As you all know, the year is 2040. It is the 3020th anniversary of Izmir being recorded. This truly is a grand day for all of us Turks." He continues his speech, mentioning our greatest moments in history. "Then, here we are now. A shadow of what we once were. The Greeks, the Armens, the Kurdish. Split among them. We will have our reawakening someday... some... day..." The mayor walks off of the podium. Claps are heard throughout Izmir. The New-Years Event continues on, with people cheering. This shall be renowned as the happiest year of Anatolia.

Izmir, 10:00 PM
The noise starts to die down. People begin to return home. The mayor sits down in his office, and closes his eyes. He is interrupted by his Secretary.

"Sorry to bother you, sir. We found out that there was an attempted bombing at your speech. Fortunately, he wasn't able to carry out the act. The man says he is from Eurasia, but he looks Kurdish. We found his accent to be Armenian, and the dynamite he was carrying appears to be manufactured in Greece."

"WHAT?! How did he pass airport securi-"

His secretary stops him.

"He didn't come from the airport. We found a vehicle labeled as Kurdish in Tire. We asked the mayor of Tire about it, but he doesn't know about it."

"They take our land, and then are attempting to terrorize our people!" he grumbles. "I'm going to call the President. Hopefully he'll do something about this."

Ankara, 11:00 PM
The President of Anatolia is sitting in his office peacefully. His mobile device starts to ring. It is shown as 'Berat Yavuz'. He answers.

"Ah, the mayor of Izmir. What is the situation that you need to call me for?"

"Yes, Demir. There was an attempted bombing in Izmir today by a Kurdish man, identified as Aferin Kamandi. He has been deported back to Kurdistan. What do you propose we do about the situation?"

"Hmm... we will hold a next month then. All Anatolian ministers and commanders will be there, as well as the mayors of a few large cities... We shall discuss it in Ankara."

"Ah, the meeting. I forgot about that. We shall discuss it there, then."

Berat ends the call, and closes his eyes again. His secretary leaves the room, and turns off the lights.

Late at night on February 4th, 2040, the elderly Doctor Rand Paul was alone, driving north from his home in Kentucky, towards Cincinnati. He had served five terms as a US senator, and five was enough. He had told his constituents that he would not run for another term. Having gotten home from Washington the day before, he was now deep in thought, driving roads he had driven many times before, looking for something to distract him.

Following a break from the Republican party in 2034, Paul had been a core member of the newly invigorated Libertarian Party. He refused to run for president, however, in 2036, despite the urging of many Libertarians. Now, in 2040, Dr. Paul been voted second in the Libertarian Party's Iowa Caucus, despite officially declaring that he was not running, and urging Libertarians not to vote for him. He didn't want to be president, but he was not a fan of President Hawley, who was expected to win a second term. Paul blamed the worsening criminal justice system in the United States on Hawley's overzealous attacks on anything and everything drug, and was wary of Hawley's refusal to negotiate a similar tariff-free arrangement with Japan as with the UK, something which Paul believed was long overdue. Moreover, Paul saw no need to continue to place punitive tariffs and sanctions on the PRC, while Hawley still pushed for a total embargo until war reparations were paid in full.

Eventually, Dr. Paul pulled off Interstate 75, and drove towards a certain Irish pub in the north of Cincinnati. The owner and bartender of this pub happened to be a good friend of his. As Paul stepped out of his 2037 Ford Fiesta, he noticed the inside of the bar was in disarray. He walked in nonetheless, and asked the bartender what had happened.

"This nation is a warzone, I tell you, Doctor Paul," replied the bartender. "Those black-suited terrorists Antifa got into it with some commie midget and his goons. He gave one of those "workers of the world, unite!" speeches, yelled about something that sounded like Proud-hun, and then ran out."

"Ah, Mutualists..." Responded Paul, deep in thought. Those who were watching closely might have been able to see something snap in his normally calm demeanor. After spending fifteen seconds silent, Rand Paul spoke again, softly but clearly:

"How long, dear God, how long will we have to wait while our people, in our cities, are either incarcerated, or radicalized and cartelized, in the pursuit of ending drugs? There are few men who hate drugs more than myself, but fighting a supply war is not the solution, and is bound to fail."

Dr. Paul paused, and continued, louder and stronger. People in the bar were starting to watch him, most recognizing Paul as the famous Libertarian.

"Communists and mutualists fighting each other in bars is not the mark of a civilized society! The Republicans, for all of their talk for an entire decade, have yet to prove capable of bringing about the return to normalcy this nation so deserves. And fighting a vain war against drugs, with the American people as collateral damage, will never bring about such a change! The only way this nation will ever recover the civility it enjoyed in generations past, and advance into a prosperous future, is with the guiding light of freedom. I say, ladies and gentlemen, I can no longer stand back as Republicans strive to turn this nation into another nanny state!"

A man in the bar yelled out: "Dr. Paul, are you running for president?"

Paul responded, in a quieter, but intense voice: "I. Have. No. Choice."

Many videos were taken of this impromptu speech, and quickly, these videos reached every major news station in the United States.

And as the story broke across the nation the next morning, a junior field reporter for Fox News, Elizabeth Hastley, was researching more into the bar-fight. Eventually, she came upon a name: Pickett. Casey F. Pickett. Hoping to break the story in time for the 7 o'clock evening news hour, Hastley and her crew set out to introduce all of America to the man who had caused Doctor Rand Paul to run for president...

Casey was living in a small tiny house that he had bought from his Youtube money. Though having a significant online influence from his videos, it didn't really translate to real-world influence. He sighed as he looked out the window, depressed and growing a red fuzz all over his effeminate face. This entire thing was a fiasco. He's going to be the laughing stock of the nation. "After years of getting the courage to speak out in public, I ruined it all. Even worse, I ruined a guy's bar. Sure, I didn't start the fight, but I didn't help matters."

He turned around to look at his desktop and video consoles. "Maybe, I should play some vidya, and all my troubles will wash away," Pickett thought aloud as he hopped out of his small bed. "And, maybe a snack too! Like peanut butter and jelly!" he cheered before twirling his dress. "I'll send the bar owner an apology for everything, it's the least I can do."

Little did he know that he was about to be thrust into the national stage.

As Rand Paul's surprise announcement of candidacy continued to send shockwaves throughout the nation, Elizabeth Hastley and her camera crew pulled up to a nondescript house in the early afternoon of Sunday, February 5th. She walked up to the house, and knocked on the door. A few seconds later, a feminine looking man, significantly shorter than Elizabeth herself, answered the door. "Good afternoon, is this Casey Pickett?" Hastley asked. Pickett gave a nod, unsure of what she and her crew were doing there. "You were in a bar-fight last night, is that right?"

Pickett meeped as he slowly closed the door. "I d-didn't mean to start it. I-I'm s-sorry! I'll pay for the damages!" he apologized, hiding behind his door. It was a complete 180 from the Pickett of the rally. The 'Grand Wizard', behind the curtain, was a meek man. Rather sure now that she had found the right person, Hastley laughed, and continued: "No, don't worry, I'm not with the police. I'm Elizabeth Hastley, Fox News. I'd like to talk to you a little about the circumstances and arguments which started that bar-fight..."

The room to hold these meetings are suspected to be on the 4th floor of the main government office. In this room, there are at least 50 seats, 40 of which are placed directly around a table which looks to be made from a rare, Dragons Blood Tree.

Warsaw - August 2039. Risen from the ashes.




Belweder Palace - Warsaw




The darkness of the room would have been complete if not for the orange light emitted by the curved computer screens forming a luminous crescent which was following the shape of the heavy, classically designed mahogany desk. A fusion of the new and the old, a bit like the Poland itself. Indeed, Poland was an old idea, an old nation, and just like anything old it had old enemies and old problems. Before the war, Poland was being watched from around the world for many reasons. To some, it looked like the new rising star of Eastern Europe, to others it looked like a nation backsliding into authoritarian national-populism. The man guessed both statements were in a way, true. Indeed, truth in politics could mostly be found somewhere in the middle between two statements. Watching the screens was an old man in his late sixties. His hair was gray and thin, while his mustache on the other hand was thick and bushy. His watery eyes did not give sign as to any weakness, only steely determination and an uncompromising attitude forged in fire out of necessity. His name was Andrzej Duda and he had been the President of Poland since 2015. 25 long years, most of them due to the fact that elections had been suspended until only two years ago.

He had spent the evening reading through hundreds of pages of legislation. Reform packages were complex, time-consuming beasts to tame and soon the Sejm and Senate would pass a number of them for him to sign into action. But that was for later, he was getting tired and this would probably be his last term, second last at most if everything went as planned. It was time to move his successor into place to take over after him, as Lech Kaczynski had once raised him up and groomed him for the role that he had been in for so long. A mentor and friend of the Polish President, Lech Kaczynski, Co-Founder of the PiS-Party died in his Warsaw home in 2022 during the siege of the city. In those terrible months vicious street-fighting raged for months and after it was over and done with one-tenth of the city lay in complete ruins with nearly a quarter more was significantly damaged. The world was on fire, and the Pearl of the Vistula lay on a bed of ash and cinders. When he finally returned it had been so much worse, a half-empty, ruined ghost city greeted them as they finally returned from Saint Petersburg and so began the long march back to prosperity which had seemed to the Polish people to be only around the corner twenty years ago. Instead, what they got was another war. The collapse of NATO, the unacceptable conduct of the European Union. Andrzej sighed and clenched his fist. How many of his people can a leader sacrifice and remain a good man? He had asked his wife on the night before the joint airstrike on the marshaling yards in Linz, Bautzen and Cottbus.

As few as possible. Agata had answered gravely. That war, that decision he and his peers made had put nearly six million of his countrymen, his fellow Poles of all ages, men and women alike into an early grave. The old man rose and slowly walked over to the window, looking out at the city of Warsaw. She was so different now, in any disaster there is opportunity and unlike the last time, their country had not been thrown under the wheels. After the Second World War, Poland had been left to pick up the pieces alone and then bury 6.5 million corpses. This time they had not been left out, their sacrifices had not been in vain, the country was not left to rot behind the Iron Curtain. This was evident in what he saw as he gazed out. The skyscrapers, the bright lights and the new buildings, people rebuilding their lives and slowly, steadily moving forward. But there was no changing the fact that this conflict had put deep scars into the national psyche of the Polish people, just the Second World War, just like the Partitions. There is a term for it even, Siege Mentality. Polish culture had been affected by it to a great degree. But it also gave them a sense of belonging and community, it made the nation able to withstand great trials and tribulations throughout it's history and each time to rise like a phoenix from the ashes, to collectively grit it's teeth, clear the rubble and build anew.

Now they had built anew again, like their ancestors had in 1945, and in 1918 before that. A nation so bloodied deserved respite and peace, perhaps more so than any other nation on this Earth. Soon, new reform packages would soon be passed through Parliament, new steps on the road to renewed prosperity, to renewed influence. Poland had been bloodied yes, but if she plays her cards right, picks her alliances carefully, her potential conflicts equally so and strongly furthers it's national interest, well, then much could be done to make this country greater than it would have been before the Third War. Miedzymorze, the Intermarium, perhaps it could be a reality. A Third Europe with it's heart in Poland, in Warsaw, able to stand against both Western Europe and Russia, strong enough to chart it's own path to success. It had been Marshall Pilsudski's dream so long ago, it had been Lech Kaczynski's goal not too long ago. Perhaps it was Andrzej Duda who would go down in history as it's founder and former. As the man who led his nations through the fire, who led it to recover and shed the gray ashes of war, who led it to claim it's rightful place as a European power once more, so many centuries after the fall of the Kingdom of Poland-Lithuania. Perhaps...



Plotek i medialnych bredni nie daj sobie wmówić,
Codziennie się rozwijaj i nie daj się ogłupić,
Atakowi propagandy stawiaj czoło dzielnie,
Nie daj sobą sterować i myśl samodzielnie.

Pickett meeped as he slowly closed the door. "I d-didn't mean to start it. I-I'm s-sorry! I'll pay for the damages!" he apologized, hiding behind his door. It was a complete 180 from the Pickett of the rally. The 'Grand Wizard', behind the curtain, was a meek man.

Rather sure now that she had found the right person, Hastley laughed, and continued: "No, don't worry, I'm not with the police or the bar owner. I'm Elizabeth Hastley, Fox News. I'd like to talk to you a little about the circumstances and arguments which started that bar-fight..."

"O-Oh.." Pickett calmed down, opening the door to reveal himself fully.

"Both you and your house are...tiny," Hastley noted, "For a moment there, I thought we had the wrong person, but I looked at the viral video and you clearly were there."

The redhead's blue eyes widened before blinking. "Really? You're serious? Viral?"

"Yes, you're the man responsible for Rand Paul's presidential run. Or...Are you transgender?" Hastley asked.

"U-Uhm, no. I'm a guy," Pickett answered before offering, "You want some tea? I have to shave first."

The reporter looked side to side at her crew members before answering, "Go ahead." She then muttered to herself as Pickett ran off to make tea, "Jeez, he is America's most polite extremist." Hastley and her crew then walked inside, taking off their shoes. The house's small size was barely enough to fit the crew.

"So, is this an interview?" Pickett asked her, finishing the tea and bringing it to them.

"Yes," she answered before the small agitator placed a platter with little tea cups on the coffee table. "Thank you," Hastley said.

"You're welcome," Pickett smiled before going off to shave. Afterwards, he hopped on his chair, grabbing one of his plushies to snuggle.

"Uhm, Pickett. I think you have to let go of the stuffed animal for the interview," the blond reporter asked before Pickett obliged with a pout.

One of the crew members leaned in to ask Hastley quietly, "Is this REALLY him?"

"How many Picketts are there in America? Of course, that's him," she replied before flashing a smile. The crew readied their cameras.

(Transition to script format: ACTIVATE!)


Hastley: So, Pickett, you do know that you're the man responsible for driving Rand Paul to run for the Presidency?

Pickett: -Blinks- What?

Hastley: The owner of the bar is friends with Rand Paul. Upon seeing the carnage, he made an impromptu speech and declared his candidacy.

Pickett: What the f- S-Sorry. But, how the- Cr- God, I hate the FCC! This is why the internet is better! -Pouts-

Hastley: Right...

Pickett: Honestly, I've been depressed the last few days. I thought I was a complete failure. So, I just have been playing video games all day.

Hastley: So, how did the fight start?

Pickett: I was just minding my own business, exercising my first amendment rights, when some drunken guy thought I was a communist and heckled me. On cue, Antifags who claim to be communists attacked me.

Hastley: So, you did not start the violence?

Pickett: Nope! I just wanted to get more support for the TRUE successor to the Democratic Party of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson!

Hastley: Huh? So, your party's name is the -reads the slip- National State's Rights Democratic Party. Are you from the South by any chance?

Pickett: Eh..Nope! I'm from Pennsylvania actually.

Hastley: Not from a Southern family?

Pickett: Maybe, I am from one, but all of my family lives up North.

Hastley: So, why...-looks at the Confederate flag- do you use the Confederate flag and imagery?

Pickett: Well, I believe in the cause of state's rights and white nationalism. And, I see the Confederate flag as a symbol of the values of Jeffersonian and Jacksonian Democracy. I inverted the colors to make it more 'national' and less 'sectional'.

Hastley: Do you support secession?

Pickett: He- I mean heck no! I don't care about the South, I just want black people to GTFO to Africa.

Hastley: -Widens her eyes- Come again?

Pickett: That's right! I said it, loud and clear. Black people. I speak to you directly. Get out of America! This is the white man's land! Same for spics, chinks, gooks, and even redskins!

Hastley: So, you're racist, but a communist?

Pickett: Yes. Actually, no. I really don't care for ideological labels, but I support a syndicalist and mutualist economy.

Hastley: Care to explain what that means?

Pickett: Well, I believe that property ownership comes from active use. Why should the landlord hog land and charge rent? Why should the capitalist grab America by its loins just because he owns the factories? I believe that Jeffersonian values can only survive in an industrial society if the factories are owned by the workers. However, I do not want to abolish the market economy or even have a powerful centralized state regulate it. Instead I want a market economy of cooperatives and self-employed workers regulated by syndicates comprised of them and labor unions under the public oversight of a direct-democratic confederation. You can read more about my ideas on my website or listen to my podcasts or even just watching my Youtube videos. My channel has 52 thousand subscribers!

Hastley: So, you have a sizable online presence?

Pickett: Yep! Honestly, if more of my supporters went out in public, we wouldn't be attacked so easily. -Stands up- So, I call upon every true American to rise up under the banner of true liberty to rise up and join the National States Rights Democratic Party and the Redshirts! Form unions! Unite for liberty, equality, and fraternity for all white Americans! -Sits back down- Sorry, I kind of get excited when I'm on my 'war-mode'.

Hastley: Right...So, were drugs involved? Paul's speech was about the Drug War. What is your stance on it?

Pickett: Crime is not a drug problem, it's a race problem. I have the statistics to prove it! But, nope. Redshirts are to be sober and sharp! Well, besides a drink here or there, but narcotics are strictly banned in the Redshirts. In fact, I'm planning on addressing the real drug crisis that is destroying white America: opiods and the disgusting 'doctors' who peddle them. Prescription drug abuse is killing my people, and I can't let that stand. Whites are dying of despair. Was this what World War 3 was fought for? Just to have America die slowly? No, I will not let drugs conquer America, not through arresting users but instead liberating them from the thrall of nacrotics, through rehabilitation. We need to stop demonizing our people as monsters in the media and instead offer a positive future for white Americans.

Hastley: So, why...do you have such hatred for other races?

Pickett: Well, they hate me. My father fought in a white nationalist militia during the 2nd Civil War. I felt the discrimination hands on. Once the r-word is used on you, you are a persona non grata, trash to be disposed of.

Hastley: But, don't you see that you're just repeating the cycle?

Pickett: Maybe, it's inevitable. Maybe, that's what happens when you mix races. You get conflict. I just want what is best for America's majority group. Hopefully, we resolve the conflict peacefully, but the tipping point is coming near. America is poised to become minority-white at this rate, and I'd rather die than let my nation turn into Brazil. I want a nation Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson would be proud of.

Hastley: Do you think that your stance on race contradicts your leftism?

Pickett: Nope. I'm for majority rule, and I believe that true democracy could only be achieved among whites. There's a reason why democracy dawned in Athens and not in China or India. Everything else originates from those two viewpoints.

Hastley: So, what are your future plans?

Pickett: I'm planning on going into local politics. Americans need to pay more attention to what their local governments are doing. Thomas Jefferson believed that only a vigilant populace could be free, and I share this viewpoint.

Hastley: I see.

Pickett: I'm kind of glad you're actually being somewhat balanced in interviewing me. Usually, I'm reviled by everyone for my views. Like people think I'm for slavery or oppressing blacks. Honestly, I just want them out of the country. They can be free to ook around in Africa for all I care. Or, Brazil. Just dump them there. As long as it's out of America.

Hastley: Isn't it strange that you idolize the Democratic Party despite what it has become now?

Pickett: Pfft. They're not REAL Democrats. Honestly, part of the reason I hate negroes so much is that they took over the Democratic Party. It's like the GOP's stupid lackeys took over the Democrats and pretended they always ran the party. You know that they cancelled the Jefferson-Jackson dinners before the war? Ugh, I'm disgusted just thinking about it.

Hastley: Don't you see what you're doing as similar to that of Hitler?

Pickett: I do not want an autocracy, and I don't want to invade other countries. Hitler was an imperialist and autocrat who oppressed his people in a vain attempt to exterminate white Slavs. Sure, it is funny that the similarities are there, but the difference is that I'm fighting against the marginalization of my people. I'm being defensive, Hitler was offensive. Oh and I don't care about racial purity. Whiteness is flexible for me.

Hastley: Flexible how?

Pickett: I can see Hispanics and Native Americans being assimilated. Hell, even the other kind of Indian. Asians are a maybe.

Hastley: So, you only racially dislike blacks?

Pickett: Oh, I dislike immigration for labor-related and security reasons. That's all.

Hastley: I see.

Pickett: Also, Hitler sold out to business and Junker interests. Like I actually despise the guy. It's why I like making fun of him. Trust me, I think Hitler would be disgusted at me.

Hastley: About that. Don't you see your...lifestyle as contradictory to your beliefs?

Pickett: Nope! Nothing is stopping gays, lesbians, and transgender people from joining the movement. Go ahead! I truly mean it when I said that all white people will be equal.

Hastley: I see. Thank you for allowing me in.

Pickett: -Smiles- No problem. Follow me at Gab, subscribe to my Youtube Channel, and join my Discord server! Sic semper tyrannis! -Flashes a Bellamy Salute at a inverted color Confederate flag with a hammer and sickle in the middle-

Anishin sat at his desk, two FSO officers standing at attention by the doorway to his room. He was unsettled, as polling before the Duma and Federal Council elections showed that the Ultranationalists where gaining seats rapidly. They had even passed the Eurasian Front in the Duma. This was becoming a problem, and it needed to be fixed, quickly, before he was replaced by one of them. However, they still held firm in the Council. He could, maybe, spike the elections into his favor, but the Georgians, Ukrainians, and some of the Kazakhs would love an opportunity for scandal, as they had been searching for one for a bit. No, that clearly wasn't an option now, he needed to keep his approval up if he wished to stay as President. His main opponent now, the Ultranationalist Chairman, Dyuzhenkov Valentinovich, was polling hard, along with his subordinates who had run for Duma and Council Positions.

He looked outside his window, seeing the Kremlin Guard standing at attention along the wall's entrances and at the main doors to the Duma chamber. He remembered the fireworks of the new year, and how exciting it was on that day. He smiled, as it was one of his favorite sights while he was in office.

He looked over at his phone, an apple(insert number over 30 here), and looked through his apps. He had many non eastern apps, and many western media sources. He looked at the story on the "Southern Socialist" Anishin scoffed, looking at this bumbling idiot. "Ankudinov, come look at this!" One of his aides, a one he was rather friendly with, came over. Ankudinov looked at his phone, and skimmed through the story, before speaking, "What is this, this guy claims to be a communist? This guy is a joke, like all the Communists in the Duma." Anishin nodded, smiling at the insult to one of his rivals at the end.

Lin’an | The Republic of China | 2040

Act I : Picking up the Pieces



OFFICIAL TELEGRAM FROM THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA TO THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA and ASEAN


To whom it may concern,
As we near ten years since the end of the conflict that ravaged our region, we are entering an end to the period of immediate recovery. Moving forward, it is the Republic's firm belief that we must strive to ensure that such a disaster never occurs again. It is my belief that the best way to ensure this is to bring the benefits of peace and prosperity to all of our peoples by encouraging economic cooperation and development across our borders. To that end, we propose a meeting in Lin'an to discuss possible avenues for future cooperation.



FROM PRESIDENT Cui Da OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA


OFFICIAL TELEGRAM FROM THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA TO THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA


To whom it may concern,
In an effort to normalize relations between our two countries and discuss avenues for future cooperation, we would like to propose a meeting between our two leaders and governments in the near future. We would like to propose Lin’an to host this meeting, but we are open to alternate arrangements.



FROM PRESIDENT Cui Da OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA





Harvesting the Sun: China’s plan to develop space-based solar power
The Republic is planning for a 1MW demonstration plant.


Teipei – The National Space Organization has revealed plans to demonstrate the collection of solar energy in space for use on Earth, promising to revolutionise how the country produces its electricity. In a statement released to the media, the NSO highlighted the key features of the technology, which intends to use low energy microwaves to transmit power from an orbiting power station to a large collector on the ground. Despite the dramatically increased cost of placing solar plants in space, scientists hope to see major increases in efficiency due to the lack of an atmosphere and 24/7 power generation due to near-permanent exposure to sunlight. With the mainland’s energy grid still recovering in the aftermath of the Third World War, the government had called for novel proposals for public-private partnerships to “develop the energy grid of the future”. It is yet to be seen whether the NSO’s initial prototype will be successful enough to lead to full-scale development of such facilities, but it is nothing if not an ambitious goal.

China’s new Super-Heavy rocket finally takes shape
Launching more than ten years after the Long March 9 was originally intended to, is it too little, too late?


Shenzhen – The sight of the rocket setting sail from Shenzhen harbour was something to behold. Secured firmly to its barge for the short trek to its launch site in the south of Taiwan, the Song II will be one of the most powerful rockets ever launched. But is it already a dinosaur out of its time?

Although the NSO has officially only been developing the vehicle for the past decade, the similarities between it and the Long March 9 - in development within the People’s Republic of China before the war - are uncanny. It is one of the clearest signs of the strange fusion of technologies and institutions that we are still seeing ten years after the Treaty of New York and the reunification of southern China. Fearing the spread of missile technology throughout the region and the instability during the early years following the war, the Republic made great pains to integrate aspects of the Communists’ space program into its own. Although the program succeeded in keeping rocket scientists working within the civil industry, it had the unintended side effect of drawing expertise from other war torn regions of the world - such as India and Europe. But even so, development was slow as the country struggled to rebuild.
Today, as we watch the first Song II embark on its voyage for final testing and integration before its first launch, some wonder whether it was all worth it. As the Eurasian Federation continues to expand its lunar operations and America’s SpaceX transports passengers to Mars, some wonder whether the ship has already sailed for a meaningful Chinese presence in space.

Government announces loan packages for small and medium businesses
Building on the success of earlier programs, the government hopes to spur the growth of entrepreneurship throughout the country


Lin’an – Even ten years after reunification, the differences between Taiwan and the inland provinces are stark. While the island state was spared the worst of the conflict, the Third World War left death and devastation across the mainland, and still many regional communities are continuing to recover. However, this week the DPP unveiled its latest plan to help with the reconstruction in these areas.

Speaking to journalists, the Minister of Economic Affairs unveiled a new low-interest package of loans for small and medium enterprises that will be backed by government assets. He explained the government’s desire to leverage entrepreneurship, innovation and the free market to further accelerate the pace of recovery throughout China.

“In the immediate aftermath of such a catastrophe, the government’s role is to directly intervene and manage the return to normality.” The Minister said in a prepared statement. “But there comes a time when the free market must be encouraged to thrive and bring true economic prosperity back to the people, which is what this package will strive to do.”

Zhongnanhai, Beijing
Term of Allowance part 2...


“This is outrageous! We cannot sell ourselves out to these reactionaries who take our land and come forward with a dangling noose and pretending it to be a toy! The Taiwanese are traitors and I refuse to accept any sort of hearing with them! You must follow my path comrade president, can’t you see they are looking to undermine our nation’s stability and hold!” The Minister of Government Public Relations was practically crying in tears towards Jiang Fi, the President of the PRC, the minister was also one of the many Neo-Maoists who were placed into positions to appease to their group and throw their backing behind the United Front. One that Jiang most hated due to their radicalization of party doctrine.

“I understand, but you must listen. We alone can no longer push towards prosperity if we isolate ourselves in the world, they own the entire southern continent and have a much larger army than our own, hell we aren’t allowed a larger army because of the treaty. But if we can convince them that we are willing to push ourselves towards change, we can convince them to be more lenient on the treaty itself, push them towards an outward look to ensure our people are no longer being oppressed, do you understand Xu?”

Minister Xu sighed, “They took Shanghai...that was my home..now a pathetic capitalist city state enforce by the international community...what do we do about that?...”

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Li Fengwen a prominent Democratic supporter to swing more of the left leaning members of the rising KMT and Three Principles to the United Front’s side steps forward. A calm aura spreading from her form, “if we can convince the Republic that we are willing to cooperate, they may not only be able to leave out of our efforts to reintegrate it, but to outright support them. Even the South must admit that the territories taken were unrightfully done so. I am sure many of the people would support the return of a united government, a true rule that wasn’t imposed by foreigners.”

“Which leaves my compromise my dear President.” Spoke Ultranationalist Minister of the Economy Chang Bao, “If there is one thing I hate it is our poor economic growth. Once destined to surpass America we now flop and faultier, all due to this war we lost. Especially the reparations, we cannot keep paying them if we are to survive! I also refuse to let you go to the South, especially in a city on Taiwan, which many know is filled with self-proclaimed Taiwanese traitors of the Han culture. You must instead choose a city that is within our territories.” He paused for a moment, thinking deeply on where the meeting should take place, when it hi Bao,

“Xi’an...that is where we will hold the talks. It was where the Second United Front was formed, where the military leader of the Kuomingtang Chiang Kai-shek was held hostage that allowed us to defeat the imperialist Japanese and eventually led us towards victory and eventually victory of our revolution.”

The President thought about it for a moment, the finally gave in and agreed. There was a higher chance anyways that if he were to leave the nation he would be assassinated, the the PRC would truly fall apart then, “Alright, then I will write a reply to the South, declaring our need for a change and I will discuss with them heavily about revising or outright allowing us to abolish the treaty. In the end, it is for the betterment of China...”

From: President Jiang Fi of the People’s Republic of China
To: President Cui Da of the Province of Taiwan
Topic: Normalizing relations
Security: Diplomatic


I have heard of your want to restore relations with the Beijing Government, our Government, of the People’s Republic of China. But I cannot accept the meeting location to be within your territory, for we find it improper and if one is to show true willingness to negotiate and bring forward peace, it is where it is most needed. Instead, through deep discussions with my Cabinet, we will hold the meeting in the city of Xi’an instead, within the Shaanxi province of the People’s Republic of China. There you and I will meet in person to restore relations and talk deeply about important geopolitical positions necessary in our ever changing world.

We await your reply and arrival,

President Jiang Fi of the People’s Reoublic of China.





While the Governmental course and diplomatic shenanigans, in Mongolia several websites are suddenly unable to be accessed and many Pro-Chinese websites have also been put up on the web. Encouraging the people of Inner Mongolia to fight back against the oppressing Mongolian Government and return to the rightful Beijing Government. To take up arms that have been left by the war to fight against the Mongolian tyrants who dare attempt to restore what they have taken from them. With this alongside border crossings by paramilitary forces, equipment and officers funnel into Inner Mongolia to grow a resistance movement to restore the position of the large province back into China.

To also silence a counter cry of Mongolian nationalism, to the surprise of many if they ever knew, the Dark web held many things to offer for Mongolia due to their limited access to the internet. But in the end, it took time for the Chinese Strategic Support Brigade to sort through and confirm many users who claim themselves hit men for hire or red room creators. After searching through what seemed to be hundreds of hoaxes, they managed to indeed find a dozen or so killers for hire and a couple red room creators. Hiring them out quickly, they gave identities of Mongolian activists and nationalists who could rouse the populations and kidnap family members of journalists to ensure their silence. Of course, this was only the small scale stuff and barely anything, but in the end they needed to make a reputation. So they left a small trademark on the official Mongolian Government website.

BBC World News

This is BBC world news. Here are tonight's top stories


Pyongyang, North Korea
Today, the leader of North Korea, Pak chae-min has made a speech announcing negotiations on trade with the United States, South Korea, Eurasia, and Brazil. He is quoted as saying, "The DPRK can only flourish if the barbaric sanctions that have crippled our economy for decades are lifted." As well as commentating on the former Kim Dynasty by saying, "Unlike the Kim regime that only ended 3 years ago, my administration will bring a level-headed approach to ensuring prosperity for the Korean people." An official response from the countries mentioned have not been made as of right now, but are likely to be made public in the coming days.


Vancouver, United States
A wave a protests and riots have struck the city of Vancouver. The protests were initially started by the pro-independence 'Canadian National Unity Front'. Riots started occurring around 6 hours ago near Vancouver National Airport after a police officer accidentally shot a protester. The state governor of British Columbia has declared a state of emergency as the death toll has risen to 20. There have also been reports of Antifa rioters fighting both the protesters and the police. The president is yet to speak out about the violence.


Lisbon, Portugal
Several car bombings have occurred within the city of Lisbon within the past 12 hours. The death toll is at 12, including the Portuguese President and 2 Parliamentarians. The Al-Iisbania front, a jihadist faction in the Spanish civil war, has claimed responsibility for the attacks. According to some geopolitical experts, this could drive Portugal to intervene in the Spanish civil war. The Portuguese government is preparing to tighten up its border with Spain in the coming weeks.


Munich, Bavaria
An armed insurgency known as the 'German Revolutionary Marxist Front' has sieged control of the Republikstag in Munich, the capital of Bavaria. Attacks have also occurred in Nuremberg, Ingolstadt, Regensburg, and Schweinfurt. The leader of the GRMF, Ernst Honecker, has stated "The World Revolution begins now! People's of Bavaria, Arise!" Clashes between the GRMF and the Bavarian military has started near Nuremberg. The Kaiser of the German Reich has spoken out about the attacks stating, "We cannot allow communism to rise in Europe once more. They are terrorists, and they will be brought to justice!" Reports are indicating that 10,000 German troops are being sent into Bavaria to help stop the uprising.


Lagos, Nigeria
Nigerian health officials have announced today that the Wuhan Coronavirus that hit China 20 years ago has resurfaced in Lagos. According to the CDC, around 1,600 cases have been confirmed within Lagos and surrounding areas. Around 25 deaths have been reported. An investigation by the CDC and CIA has revealed that the virus likely originated from Taiwanese pork exports. Lagos is expected to be in lockdown within the next 24 hours. Hospitals in Lagos are full as patients continue to come in. The red cross is setting up medical centers around Lagos. All airports and seaports have been shut down. The World Health Organization has stated that it is highly unlikely that the virus will spread beyond Nigeria.

Anishin sat at the desk, as the camera crew gave a thumbs up. The cameras rolled, and the president was live to the entire nation, as he began speaking. "Today, the German government has deployed a Division sized unit to the independent state of Bavaria. This is a violation of the Sovereign rights of the Republic of Bavaria, and is a violation of international law." He breathed, before continuing, "The Eurasian Federation demands that the Germans withdraw military forces from Bavaria within 20 days, or there will be serious consequences for the German nation." He fiddled with his fingers, then continued, "Along with this, we wish to assist the Bavarian government with assistance in this issue, as the Germans obviously just want to Annex the nation." He inhaled for the last time, "Thank you for watching this broadcast, God is with us."

85 year old Prime Minister stepped up to the platform. He had managed to hold an Iron fist over the country, after the new constitution allowed the ruling party's president to remain Prime Minister as long as the party held majority. As the years went by he only got older, but his control solidified as propaganda grew. Yet today was a great day for his Japan. Today would mark the start of a Japan not afraid of its neighbors. Today would be a controversial one, but in Japan, it would be seen as a victory. He stepped up to the mike.

"Today is a great day for Japan! We are no longer afraid of our enemies and are able to prosper as we once did long ago. Our fellow citizens, a group I am proud to be apart of, the Nihon Kaigun, had battled to keep our control of the Senkaku Islands when our government was under a weak constitution. Now, Article Nine is no more. Today, I am here to announce the first oil rig will be opened near the Senkakus, in order to harvest the large oil reserves present. I have also deployed a garrison of 40 Japan Coast Guard officers to the island to protect it from despicable attempts from nationalists of our enemies to seize it. This is a day of strength for Japan! This will be the first time since 1945 our police forces and military will base on the islands, and the first time, we utilize the oil we have under our territory, as we work towards oil dependence! I have also ordered for an escort of two Coast Guard Patrol Vessels to ensure the security of the rig for the first few weeks, as we seek to expand the operations surrounding.

This is but a step in our attempts to not only protect Japan economically and physically, but our allies too! Just a few weeks ago I discussed with the American president that while the great Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan still remains in effect, this is not the one sided alliance it used to be. Japan since the start of the Third World War has been carrying its own weight even more, paying more and more money towards our own defense, and funding the Americans who bravely protect our interests and their own in the region."

He stepped down to the roar of applause. He had spoke about the issue weeks earlier in his meeting with the American president, and later his advisers, who were widely in support of the announcement. However some advisers were more cautious. While the islands had been controlled by Japan for a very long time, at one point there was dispute with China. Taiwan had once claimed the islands too... Yet they had been under the administration of Japan since before the Third World War. So ahead the plan went, and here we were.

This was not the only thing Prime Minister Abe had planned, he wanted to regain control of the Takeshima, currently illegally occupied by the Koreans, and hopefully make a deal to solve the Kuril Islands dispute with the Eurasian Front which officially since 1945 have been recognized by the United States as Japanese territory under Russian control. While the Prime Minister did not want to create conflict with "allies" he also knew the ultra-nationalists and Nihon Kaigun backing would only last as long as he did what he could for Japan.

When the Prime Minister was handed a message from the Republic of China, an old ally, he looked in distaste. He was happy to have economic cooperation with Taiwan and ASEAN, but South Korea and the People's Republic of China? He did not like South Korea, who occupied the Takeshima and still acted hostile, trying to point out outrageous claims about Imperial Japanese misconduct from over 100 years ago. He did not believe them, and this was the official stance of Japan. But at the same time, Japan had to make sure to be diplomatic. So a message was written out.

Sejm Conference Center - Warsaw




President Andrzej Duda had done this many, many times indeed. Taken those steps up the to speaker's podium, straightened his tie and calmly faced the cameras which flashed and recorded. Strange, much of his political career as Poland's Head of State had been spent in Saint Petersburg. In Russia, who could have thought. Once upon a time he, Lech, Mateusz, Witold, the pre-war elite of the PiS had spent long hours in talks of how one could weaken the Russian state. From the outside Putinian Russia had looked like the 21'st century's Sick Man of Europe, eerily similar to the USSR during the Yeltsin Era. Yet they had gone through the terrible fires of World War Three and emerged stronger than Duda could ever had imagined. Never underestimate Russia's ability to consolidate in the face of war. War seemed to be able to drive those people to do the impossible. The Eurasian Federation was a superpower on Poland's doorstep and improved relations with them was a necessity. Andrzej stood behind the podium, giving the cameras a confident gaze as he had done so many times during Poland trial by fire during the War. Soon, he would announce several ambitious plans, a rousing call to arms to the nation so to speak. The President of Poland took a deep breath, feeling the stale air of the crowded conference room in in his lungs as he began to speak.

"Friends, countrymen, fellow people of Poland. I can do nothing but thank you from the bottom of my heart for the great trust you have placed in the Law and Justice party and in me two years ago, you lent us your confidence and I swear to you that I shall not squander your trust. The remaining four years of the mandate, indeed, the coming decade are of paramount importance to our country and I am overjoyed that the people have chosen the Law and Justice party to properly handle the challenges that we need to overcome as a nation to truly blossom. After the guns fell silent we managed to secure our share. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Law and Justice Party, Poland was not thrown down to the wolf-pit after the war, left to make it out as best it could. Through negotiation we managed to secure recompense for our suffering, land for our country and funds to rebuild from the devastation and while nothing will being back our loved ones who fell in this terrible conflict I'm sure they would be proud of what has been accomplished." He took a sip of water and continued to speak.

"Our economy has grown thanks to the wise investment of reparation funds, continued social reforms, economic reforms and infrastructural investments. This government's priority lays in further economic development, that is the basis for any other endeavor be it social, scientific, educational, infrastructural or any other. The Law and Justice Party shall use the reparation funds to raise the standard of living and lay a powerful foundation for future economic growth for the period after 2050 when this flow of funds runs out. My administration shall do all it can to make such a future of prosperity and peace a reality for us. We shall invest in our safety and our national defense capabilities to project a credible deterrence to foreign belligerence. Under my current administration's plan for the following mandate national defense will remain a key priority. I shall also give significant attention to law enforcement so that we and our children may live our lives in safety and peace. We shall give significant support to the bedrock of Polish society which is the Polish family, which is a critical necessity if we are to sustain our economy and our unique culture in the long term and raise the purchasing power of our citizens, making the costs of childcare less burdening." The Polish President took a step back from the podium, his place was taken by Sylwia Lugowska, Minister of Labor, Family and Social Policy.

"The budget set forth for this mandate will go down in history as the budget of the family and significant funding will be allocated to family support, with another 450 million Zlotys being allocated to the healthcare system specifically earmarked to improve the quality and availability of maternity care throughout the country. For far too long, parties on the political right have seen a discussion on family support as a non-starter, with family policy often looked down upon as a policy of government hand-outs or as an attempt to ruin the traditional male breadwinner family model. We in the PiS do not subscribe to this thinking, instead we shall undertake extensive and comprehensive measures in order to help and support Polish families who form the bedrock this society as well as all human societies across the globe. It is our hope that soon, new generations will move into rebuilt homes, once more filling this country with life, laughter and light shining from windows of buildings that only a few years ago were blackened ruins. Thus great focus shall be placed on providing financial support as well as providing childcare as part of the public system, in short, doing as much as we can do in order to help Polish families cope with the challenges they face in the modern world. Comprehensively improving the availability of childcare and pre-school education will be a top priority, helping parents combine their professional careers with parenthood alongside aid to reduce the financial burden of child-care and raise purchasing power." Minister Lugowska said a gave the President a nod and smile.

"Thank you, Madam Minister Lugowska." Duda said courteously. "As the Madam Minister said, the family is the bedrock that any society is built upon and our support for the family is one of the most direct investments that can be made in a country's future. On just that topic, I'm sure Minister of Development Czerwicki would like to have a word." Duda said and nodded to the Minister of Investments and Economic Development who now added his voice to the press conference.

"Poland has a great amount of economic potential despite the devastation of the War and the policies of this government will seek to unleash it. While we have recently grown slightly beyond nominal pre-war GDP levels, per capita they are indeed higher, and when adjusted for purchasing power, we have overtaken the Southern European countries of Portugal and Greece in pre-war terms. It is imperative that our country adopts an aggressive and dynamic series of policies designed to capitalize on Poland's current-day economic advantages to pave the way to a more prosperous future for our children. If we do not waste these years, Poland can become one of the main growth engines in Europe and truly emerge from the ashes as a regional center of development. We will do our utmost to make this a reality and programs are planned to make our country a leading process manufacturer in the region as well raise Poland's global status a major food supplier as well as to create over half a million jobs in advanced business services while we salvage and future-proof struggling sectors. All of this is possible and indeed needed if Poland is to emerge into anything beyond a regionally focused middle-economy. We shall adopt an accelerated growth policy, catch up with the advanced economies and become a globally competitive growth engine with internationally recognized Polish brands. We shall take the measures needed to close the productivity-gap within crucial sectors such as mining, agriculture and energy while expanding high-potential sectors like advanced business services, process manufacturing and food processing. Over to you, mister President." Minister Czerwicki finished.

"Thank you, mister Minister." Duda said and once more let his voice be heard. "We are at a unique moment in our history, our country has gone through a period of suffering and devastation that none deserved, and at the same time she has the means and resources to begin a new phase of our more than thousand year-old history. A point has been reached when we cannot rely on the invisible hand, we require ambitious plans and bold execution of them to achieve new heights. I shall focus the efforts of my administration to make our ambitious plans reality, to make Poland wealthy, safe and strong. To deepen our ties with our allies near and far, working closely with the United States and the Eurasian Federation as well as our regional partners in Eastern Europe, especially the former Visegrad Group while furthering our diplomatic outreach across the world. With hard work and determination, our comprehensive Poland 2050 Program can become reality, thank you ladies and gentlemen."




Policymakers at Work


Mining, especially coal mining but also copper and silver present one of the sectors with the largest productivity-gaps when compared to Western European nations at a staggering 72% before the Third World War. Coal mining has been one of Poland's major export industries since the Interwar Era and measures should be taken to improve it's profitability and future viability. With the reforms introduced as part of this policy package it is the hope of the government that Polish coal mining, alongside Polish mining in general is given a good chance to grow into a stable, profitable and innovative sector of the national economy. The government hopes that if applied systematically, the following actions will result in significant growth and double-digit productivity improvements in Poland's mining sector.

* Active Measures.
- Abandon geological areas that cannot be made economically viable by operational improvements.
- Eliminate regulatory barriers that increase effective operation costs and reduce labor productivity while not improving safety or working conditions for employees.
- Set up a 2.5 billion Zloty Mining Revitalization Fund, providing fixed low-interest loans as financial incentives to invest in modern equipment, apply process improvements, standardize procedures and enable continuous improvement in equipment availability and effectiveness, labor productivity, energy and utility efficiency, and safety standards.
- Invest in developing Katowice as a global hub for underground operations and technologies such as Smart Mines. Poland is well-positioned to be a leading nation in mining innovation combining a highly skilled and cost-effective engineering workforce with local underground expertise. These measures will only increase in importance over time as global mineral reserves from readily available open-pit mines are increasingly depleted and this expertise could become a significant Polish export service in the following decades.





Poland ranks highly in Europe in terms of viable arable land. Approximately 300 million people live within 1000 kilometers from the Polish border, providing Polish farmers and food processing companies a large and dynamic market to take advantage of. In order to tap into the revenue from this potential market, Polish farms must increase their output and profit margin. High levels of urbanization in Western Europe and the irradiation of farmland after the French Nuclear Strikes has made Poland with it's large agricultural land areas a prime candidate as a food supplier in Europe. The agricultural sector has great potential but is marred by structural inefficiency from even before the war in addition to devastation suffered during the conflict. It contributes to only about 2% of national GDP but employs 10.5% of the total workforce. To make Poland a sound base for a profitable and dynamic food industry hub the sector needs transformation in the following fields to increase productivity and growth. Increased dynamism in agriculture would bring more wealth into the hands of Poland's rural population, numbering at 40% of the population and encourage spending to improve the state of the domestic market. The is a change the government hopes to support with the following reform package.

* Active Measures.
- Increasing through consolidation the size of the average family-owned farm which in Poland is at around 10 hectares while those in Western Europe are around 50 hectares.
- Improving yields on Polish farms by encouraging land leases, contract farming and financial incentives to form producer's co-operatives.
- Re-orienting the sector from it's current focus on low-value raw produce toward higher value processed foodstuffs.
- Seek opportunities to consolidate food processing industries to gain much needed scale, including the adoption of a cooperative business model for fragmented producers.
- Increase food product complexity and move up the value chain, for instance by increasing focus on organic produce and products for specialized diets popular.
- Form the Agricultural Disaster Relief Fund where farmers can apply for monetary recompense in case of drought, severe rainfall, or other sudden and unforeseen weather phenomena destroying crops.
- Form the Agricultural Modernization Fund to which 2 billion Zlotys (533 million dollars) shall be allocated. Farmers may apply for fixed low-interest loans in order to invest in improved agricultural equipment, especially precision farming technologies such as UAV Systems for real-time soil monitoring.
- Build the strength of Polish brands, preferably with help from international retailers with special focus on categories such as poultry, pork and dairy where Poland already has a strong position in the international foodstuffs market.
- Encourage further investment in intellectual property as well as R&D in such areas as refrigeration and nanotechnology in conservation, filtering, and packaging innovations in order to promote technological development and encourage closer cooperation between academia and the agricultural sector.





Before the Third World War Poland was one of the world's leading nations when it came to the business and service sector as a destination for outsourced and offshored business services (O&O). The growth of O&O in Poland outpaced formerly anticipated leaders in the field. The Polish Outsourcing and Offshoring sector suffered significantly because of the war and now employs barely 80 000 people, not even half of what it had employed before the War. However, Poland still possesses a strong combination of advantages to develop it's role as a supplier of advanced business services. These include plentiful talent, conveniently situated in rebuilding cities with lower labor costs than in those Western nations largely spared from destruction but with similar skills and a familiar legal code. With the right mix of initiative and policy enhancements the government hopes to expand the high-end O&O sector to over 850 000 jobs over the next 10 years with another 200 000 jobs being created in various related support services. The further expansion of business services will aim at providing office services in loans and banking, mortgage-process management, policy and claims handling, big data analytics, remote health diagnostics, data storage and many other fields.

* Active Measures.
- Adapt educational curricula to provide the more specialized needs of the sector, improving the quality of foreign language proficiency and specialized expertise in for example financial fraud detection and big data analytics.
- Offer growth incentives for local Polish finance and insurance service leaders to help them develop the scale and efficiency needed to compete globally by using the infrastructure of state-owned enterprises and the Polish capital market. This shall be done by opening an investment fund of 3 billion Zlotys (800 million Dollars) to which private projects can apply for a grant of 40% of the total cost of the venture with private venture capital funding 60% of the projected cost. If the project is successful the sum of the grant given shall be re-payed with a small interest within a period agreed upon at the application for the grant.
- Develop and fund a broad international campaign to promote Poland as an European champion of outsourced and offshored business services through the Polish Trade and Investment Agency.
- Help Poland's largest cities become magnets for O&O investors by establishing world-class investors´front desks and support services by increasing the funding of the Polish Trade and Investment Agency by 20 million Zlotys.
- Build strong industry associations to develop a growth vision for the industry and aligned educational programs.





The Polish population has since the fall of the communist regime gone through a period of stagnation and aging and contraction due a drop in fertility rates, increase in death rates and large-scale emigration. In addition to this, nearly six million Poles died during the Third World War. And while population growth has seen an increase due to rising fertility and the return of Western Army soldiers, often alongside relatives thanks to the generous Veteran's Support Act. It is necessary to invest heavily in family support in order to provide a long term-model for stable internal natural growth to secure Poland's economic growth prospects while causing as little disruption as possible to the nation's social fabric and strain on social services. A comprehensive policy developed by studying the French family policy, Scandinavian family policy and Hungarian family policy, the government hopes to raise Poland's population growth and achieve stable replacement and growth levels over a long term. While expensive it can if greatly successful allow the country to hopefully achieve a population growth spurt similar to what it enjoyed between 1945 and 1989 alongside the achievement of long term replacement growth.

* Active Measures.
- A monthly Child Allowance shall be made available amounting to 1250 zlotys per child until the child reaches 18 years of age in order to raise the purchasing power of families.
- Families with 3 or more children will be eligible for a tax reduction system to further raise their purchasing power.
- Provide 350 000 public creche and daycare places by 2045. The operation of which will fall under a new branch of the Ministry of Education.
- Provide 65 000 childcare places for the children of parents working non-standard hours. The operation of which will fall under the same branch of the Ministry of Education as mentioned above.
- Institute 20 weeks of Maternity Leave on 80% of pay for the first child.
- Institute 10 weeks of Paternity Leave on 70% of pay for the first child.
- Companies that employ more than 250 people and provide free on-site child daycare to employees can subtract the cost of the childcare service multiplied three times from their yearly corporate tax. Hopefully this will service to boost private sector income as well as allow parents to return to work sooner.
- Institute Family Housing Support Program in order to aid families in acquiring newly built or repairing old homes. A family with one child may apply for a 35 000 Zloty grant. A family with two children may apply for a 85 000 Zloty grant. A family with three or more children may apply for a 125 000 Zloty grant.
- A marriage allowance shall be universally instituted and payed out to newlywed couples. It shall be at the amount of 500 Zlotys per spouse for the first 24 months of the marriage. To be eligible both persons must have a clean criminal record and at least one of the spouses must be below 35 years of age.
- A monthly childcare allowance equivalent to 70% of the applicants salary shall be made available and will be provided until the child's second birthday, this allowance will however not rise to a sum above 150% of the minimum wage.
- Work with the Polish Catholic Church to promote nuclear family values. With more than nearly 92% of the population identifying as Catholic and over 61% identifying as observant worshipers the Polish Catholic Church can provide a strong voice in the promotion of family values.
- Encourage the positive portrayal of the nuclear family in art, education and media.
- Found the Reproductive Health Research Institute, tasked with studying fertility and reproductive health.





As a further promotion of the high-end service sector, a new top-modern business center integrating smart-city technologies shall be constructed in Warsaw in the Saska Kepa district which suffered extensive destruction during the Siege of Warsaw in 2022, and sadly largely remains in a state of disrepair. Located on the eastern bank of the Vistula river the new multi-use complex will have a usable surface of 2.3 million square meters that will be taken up by office spaces, business centers, convention centers, high-end apartments, hotels, shopping areas, a shopping mall, recreation areas, transport centers, exhibition centers, a hospital, a police station and a central green belt among other facilities and amenities. With a projected cost of approximately 6.5 billion Dollars and with an preliminary completion date in mid-2045, the Saska Kepa IBC is a significant investment and it is the hope of the government that it will serve to further attract both local and international businesses willing to invest in Warsaw's high-end service sector. The area of the IBC shall be considered a Special Economic Zone with Corporate Income taxes half of the base level.

Finalized concept of the complex after completion

It is the hope of the Polish government that the region can once more rise, that we can restore and even surpass what we achieved between the Fall of Communism and the Third World War that devastated many of our countries, not least Poland and our allies in the Visegrad Group. But we need to look to the future as well, we cannot stew in the misery of the war which is why Poland is reaching a hand out to Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Zagreb and Ljubljana in hopes of taking a collective step towards a new, more prosperous future for the region. One where we can chart our own path together.

* The Points of Discussion Shall Be.
- Discuss possibility of deeper economic partnerships between our nations
- Discuss measures of cultural cooperation and joint political and diplomatic stances between our nations.
- Discuss viability of a mutual defense pact.
- Discuss possibility of joint infrastructural projects between our nations.
- Discuss measures on joint research projects between our nations.

We wish nothing but health, happiness and prosperity for people who once more, like the people of Poland found themselves in the crosshairs of imperialist dreams given from in Western Europe, spreading eastward in a whirlwind of destruction. As we rebuild our home and mourn the fallen, we cannot allow the past to tether us and must look to constructing a stable future in Europe. Poland watches the unrest in Germany warily and offers the Eurasian Federation aid in intelligence sharing as to make sure the unrest is put down so Europe can move forth in peace and heal it's wounds. The Polish government also hopes that the Eurasian government would entertain the idea of expanded trade ties between our nations, allowing the easy flow of goods and services between our borders.

* The Points of Discussion for the Agreement Shall Be.
- Discuss measures to ease the flow of goods and services between our nations.
- Discuss measures on possible Eurasian-Polish cooperation in the field of security.

BBC World News

This is BBC world news. Here are tonight's top stories


Lagos, Nigeria
Nigerian health officials have announced today that the Wuhan Coronavirus that hit China 20 years ago has resurfaced in Lagos. According to the CDC, around 1,600 cases have been confirmed within Lagos and surrounding areas. Around 25 deaths have been reported. An investigation by the CDC and CIA has revealed that the virus likely originated from Taiwanese pork exports. Lagos is expected to be in lockdown within the next 24 hours. Hospitals in Lagos are full as patients continue to come in. The red cross is setting up medical centers around Lagos. All airports and seaports have been shut down. The World Health Organization has stated that it is highly unlikely that the virus will spread beyond Nigeria.


Ankara, 6:50 AM, February 26th, 2040

This Anatolian President sits in his seat, dumbfounded at this news. Considering that he thinks a lot, this is not unexpected. "The virus we eradicated years ago, brought back? This is indeed concerning..." He takes a look at his clock. "I have the time for a meeting." He exits his office and heads off to the convention room, which happens to be just below his office. He waits for the ministers of health, foreign relations, and defense, as well as the 2 head commanders to this meeting.

Emergency Meeting of Ankara, 10:00 AM
Minister of Health
Minister of Foreign Affairs
Minister of Defense
Commander Losch
Commander Foeron


President Demir: "Alright, so we have received reports of the Coronavirus in Lagos, Nigeria, another country destroyed by The War. As you all know, this virus grew into a huge problem 17 years ago, but was eradicated soon after the Germans developed a vaccine for it. But now, it has grown into another problem, infecting 1,600 people by this point. Lagos is set to be quarantined tomorrow. Is there anything you propose to do about this?"

Minister of Health: "I'm sure that the Nigerian government would appreciate it if we sent over some medics to assist with the curing of the disease there." She pauses for a moment. "Perhaps we could also send over some forces for the quarantine of Lagos."

Minister of Defense: "What?! No! I'm not going to send OUR men into a deathtrap that could possibly infect this entire cou-"

Commander Losch: "Sorry, Parasa, but you have no word here. I agree with the Minister of Health, we should send over some troops to assist in the quarantine."

Minister of Foreign Affairs: "I certainly agree with Mr. Losch here. Sending over some troops could help our relations with Nigeria.

Minister of Defense: "Argh, you..." He is interrupted by Commander Foeron.

Commander Foeron: "Mr. Parasa, now is not the time to argue. We have a serious issue on our hands. We either send aid, or we don't."

President Demir: Alright, we will hold a vote in parliament. More than half the parliament needs to vote on one or the other to allow it to pass."


Vote of Ankara, 1:30 PM

Brasilia, Brazil
Presidential Palace


President Emilio Vazquez walks into his office one early morning in January to see several of cabinet there. His Secretary of State Sophia Lopez speaks first, "Mr. President, we may have a serious problem in Nigeria."

Emilio replies with a worried look on his face, "Sophia what seems to be the problem?"

Sophia frowns before replying, "Well sir, you remember the Wuhan Coronavirus? It has come back with a vengeance sir. Danilo and I" she points to the Secretary of Transportation, "Have been discussing our options and we think it's time we halt all shipping and flights to and from Nigeria until the situation has stabilized. All we need is your approval of the idea."

Emilio stands there thinking while pacing for 10 minutes before turning to his cabinet, "Do it Sophia and Danilo, ground all flights to and from Nigeria. Quarantine all passengers and crew of flights from Nigeria and test them for the Coronavirus. Do the same with the crews of all Nigerian shipping. I will not allow this deadly disease in Brazil no matter the cost. Sophia also put out a press release stating what we are doing."


Sophia grimaced, "Yes sir, I will get right on it." Sophia leaves the president's office.

Emilio walks to a bullet proof window looking outside before speaking, "The world is only now returning to normal after what happened 20 years ago. Like WW1, an assassination caused WW3 to break out. We have had 3 world wars in the span of just over 100 years. I will do everything I can to prevent a 4th world war from breaking out as that one will probably end life as we know it."


Brazilian Government Press Release

By the executive order of President Emilio Vazquez, all Nigerian flights and shipping to and from Brazil will suspended until further notice. With the reemergence of the Coronavirus in Lagos, the Brazilian government is taking all precautions to protect all Brazilian citizens and foreign tourists within our borders. All Nigerian citizens that are within our borders will be given an indefinite extensions on their visas and will be allowed to stay here until the situation at home stabilizes. We will be sending medical supplies and our best doctors to aid the people of Nigeria. In other news, we stand with the Eurasian Federation in condemning the German Empire's attempt at annexing Bavaria. We ask the Bavarian government permission to send 4 elite mechanized infantry divisions to your country to help it.

Somewhere in Siberia, Former Russian Subterranean Facility

Razor himself stood at the end of the conference table, all of his bodily features obscured by his helmet and armor. The amount of security to protect the identity of Razor was astonishing, as not even his closest associates were allowed to see his face. Right now, he was addressing the current issues in Bavaria of which he had just received word via one of the only forms of outside contact permitted in the facility, radio. "As you know, esteemed commanders, a Marxist-aligned militant faction has arisen in Bavaria just today, and also as you all know, we cannot allow this!" Razor slammed his fist on the table. "This is potentially harmful to all the work we have done in that region, and we cannot allow this progress to be lost! Formal military forces are already engaging the Marxist rebels, but I thought we would add a bit of, shall we say, our touch to it. If the communists have gained any sort of territory, our goal is to seize control of it, and after we... vet the population of such areas, we will then hand the land back to the Bavarian government. Your first priorities are to neutralize the militant units, and then you are to establish a perimeter around any area they once controlled. Searching the civilian population will be needed to prevent another rise like this, and if any Bavarian or German forces engage your positions, shoot to kill. I don't care if they are fighting the same enemy, they cannot interfere with trials and their justice system, instead any civilians we find to support the Marxists will be executed promptly on the spot. Afterwards, the Bavarians can have their land back, understood?" The five commanders in the room processed this information, and one at a time said something along the lines of, "Yes sir." or "Understood." Razor looked around the room, and said, "Good, a map of the deployment areas will be sent after your departure. I hate these disgusting commies, ugh."

In the Armory

The fighters were donning the customary blood red and black armor and helmets of Razor's Insurrection. Armor that covered the whole body was necessary to survive long sentry shifts in the frigid Siberian weather, and below the steel plates were layers of bullet resistant fabric to keep warm and stay protected, and the helmet was fully enclosed so sentries kept their noses. There were no standard weapons in the Insurrection, troops generally used what weapons they find they can use best, ranging from bullpup assault rifles to long-range revolvers, or maybe just a simple AR or Glock. Some even chose old milsurp rifles and other old firearms. When the insurgents had finished locking and loading, facility workers began moving crates of ammunition, explosives, sandbags, and stationary machine guns onto two Dornier Do 31 VTOL transport jets, which were first mass produced in 2024.

Hangar, Outside the Armory

The hangar was a rather small one, and contained the few military craft the Insurrection possessed. The entire facility itself wasn't that huge, and the Eurasian Federation seemed to have just forgotten about the old WWIII era facility. The VTOL craft rolled outside onto the runway, the end of which was obscured by heavy snowfall. The planes lifted into the air, bound for Bavaria. It wasn't a massive operation, only about a hundred insurgents were being deployed, after all, the militant Marxists were only civilians fighting with what they could afford. The planes would be landing and then leaving after they were unloaded, and they would be landing just outside the city limits of Munich.

Meanwhile, Outside the Main Facility Door

The sentries were bored, as usual, and there were only two guarding the main door, because nothing happened, nobody had found this facility yet.
"Y'know..." said the shorter guard, Dexter. "What?" said the taller one in a deeper voice, Mike. "Don't you get fucking tired of just standing here when nothing happens, I would much rather be one of the guys trying to find out that Pickett guy's location, that guy with the YouTube channel in America." Mike replied with, "Yeah, it does get boring, but again, boss needs to know if anybody finds us, because then we would all be doomed. Speaking of Pickett, yeah, I would like to raid his house, if only we knew where his house was! That racist, fag loving piece of commie shit is a real problem, it's annoying to just hear his damn voice." "Agreed." said Dexter. "If anyone were to find us, I would hope it would be the pizza delivery guy, because I'm starting to get a little tired of rice, beans, and pork, y'know? We've had the damn stuff all week, it tastes good but we need some variety, y'know?" Mike took some time to process, "Yeah, I think so too, but really, what pizza delivery is going to end up all the way here, in the middle of fucking Siberia? I really hope we get off of guard duty sometime soon, so I can maybe travel to our outpost in Africa, because they get shipments of good food all the time, and you can actually look at something enjoyable if you do end up with sentry duty, not some sheet of white literally 24/7." Dexter began to state his agreement, but noticed something on the thermal optics attached to his helmet. "Hey, Mike, somebody's comin'! They don't look like they're armed, might be some kind of science expedition? Nonetheless, we should shoot these guys and tell boss about it." Mike quickly rebounded from the wall he was leaning against. "Alright! We'll both shoot them from here with the sniper rifles, and then afterwards you can run back in and tell boss. There looks to be about 8 people in heavy winter gear." They both lifted their Accuracy International AWMs, and took shots at the men. 3 of them fell quickly, and the others realized what was going on, and tried to flee. The thermal scopes made this futile, and they quickly dropped dead after being shot. Dexter ran to the door controls, and the large, hangar-sized door slid open. He ran to the second door, after that, and then dashed toward's Razor's office.

This Is A Global News Alert

Yesterday at around 3:20 PM Eatsern Standard Time, NASA discovered an asteroid with a diameter of .67 Kilometers or .41 Miles. Today, they have announced that the asteroid, now known as 2040-67J is on a collision course with earth. It is expected to impact the earth at around 7:20 AM EST on May 7th, 2040. The trajectory is still uncertain, but is expected to be somewhere along a line from Equatorial Guinea to the Galapagos islands. There have been reports of rioting and looting across West Africa, Latin America, The Caribbean, The US, and in cities across the globe as news of the asteroid is spreading. An emergency UN summit in Geneva has been called for. Major world leaders are yet to make statements.

Please Stand By For An Emergency Announcement At The Request of The National Aeronautics and Space Administration and The United States Space Force.

We have discovered a shocking truth about the asteroid that will hit the Earth this May. It is not the only one. There have been several reports of airbursting asteroids across the globe within the past week. They have ranged in diameter from 5m/16.4Ft, to 70m/229Ft. Over 200 deaths and 70,000 injuries have been reported from these asteroids. The trajectory of 2040-67J has been confirmed to impact 15KM/9.3Mi South of the Colombian capital city of Bogota. We have warned the Colombian government, and they have issued an evacuation order for the city. Some minor asteroids have also had their trajectories calculated. Evacuation orders will be put in place for the following areas: Tampa Bay, Austin, San Francisco, Winnipeg, Des Moines, San Juan, and Ottawa. Minor asteroids will hit the following locations internationally: Rio De Janeiro, Tijuana, Adelaide, Manila, Sapporo, Vladivostok, St. Petersburg, Manchester, Lyon, Seville, Dakar, Nairobi, Mecca, and Johannesburg. These minor asteroids range in size from 10m/32.8Ft to 60m/196.8Ft. The sudden spike in asteroid impacts is being caused by a rogue comet around 193.1KM/120Mi in diameter, which thankfully will pass between the Earth and the Moon a few days before the impact of 2040-67J. The death toll by the end of the asteroid impacts is expected to be at over 15 million, with over 2 Trillion dollars in damages. Now is the time to come together, and to hope for the best.
