2021-2023: The world is defined by riots, pandemics, natural disasters, and death. The growing civil unrest transforms when militia from the different wings faces off and civilians are killed. Federal forces are deployed to handle the unrest, but after the first couple of skirmishes, some regiments choses sides and it goes into a full civil war. The first time in 50 years a sitting US president was assassinated, together with the Vice President and the Speaker of the House. The US Military tries to take command until a new president could be elected, but it leads to bloodbath on the streets, more soldiers revolting and start fighting each other. Micro-Wars break out within cities and towns as the extremists' wings battle each other while the common man hides or runs.It gradually spills out into other countries in the world. In the UK the people revolt against the corrupt Government and media. Violence escalates and martial law is declared. US citizens flood into Mexico to escape the bloodshed, only to be turned back by the Mexican Prime minister and the Mexican people who pay for and build a wall to keep the refugees out.
2023: while there is a full panic in the United States, reports of several autonomous strike forces hitting research centres for high-tech companies as well as innovative companies in other fields.
2024: Canada closes its borders to US citizens.
2027: The United States is no more. The central northern states are a mass of refugees, fled from east and west to avoid the violence, the southwestern and south-eastern states are controlled by extremists' wings respectively, the central US has become a battleground. Veterans and Preppers are scattered around the country.
2028: Across the Pond, riots in France and Germany have escalated, Paris and Berlin are burning. Immigrants are being pushed out of these countries and their neighbours are taking up the cause.
2030: Widespread rioting in Spain, France, Germany, UK, and former soviet states as Russia tries to capitalise on the unrest to recapture old territory.
2035: China moves on the United states to "peacefully restore order". Tens of thousands die, but the extremists regimes are crushed under the communist boot of china.
2040: industry is slowly beginning to recover in the USA. Meanwhile, regimes are falling around the globe! In the UK, what will be known as the "Poor War", is beginning, as lower income citizens rise against the rich, The conservative government, entrenched with an ageing Prime Minister at the helm call in the army, who immediately turn on them and enact the first governmental coup in living memory. Assets are stripped from the rich, businesses flee the once thriving commercial zones of London, Birmingham, and Manchester and the UK starts heading for the Dark Ages.
2041: Israels poaching of scientists from Japan, promising them a safe haven, advanced their digital research, producing the first workable Quantum computer which could operate in warmer temperatures then 0.015 Kelvin. They managed to raise the temperature to 105 Kelvin, and made it more feasible for future development while keeping it under lock and key.
2042: Relinquishing its stranglehold on America, the Chinese Machine reaches tendrils out to the United Kingdom. However, the English immediately unite to fend off the foreigners, uniting behind a young revolutionary Alexandra Yang.
2045: European tensions begin to die down as refugees are pushed south to Africa and a united European task force unites to make Africa a safe place, warlords tumble in the African Freedom War.

2055: New Europe, having incorporated northern Africa and parts of UAE and including Israel/Palestine, re-established with no country boundaries and equal treatment for all citizens, and development of the Sahara Solar Field commences.
2060: The advent of true Quantum Computing thanks to the former Israel governments steadfast usage of secret development over the last two decades. For the last 19 years, since we managed to convince the Israeli Government that it was in their interest to assist the Japanese science team away from the semi warzone of Japan islands and into the safer environment of Israel, we have sometimes struggled to keep nosey 3rd party agents away from discovering their work. So far, weve not only managed to do that, but also have gained a straight route into the information sources, giving our own project group ideas on a parallel development that would be completely compatible without being vulnerable from their end.
