Timeline

The gameworld’s “present” is pretty far in the future, but not in the realm of spaceships and intergalactic brouhaha. Rather than assigning a specific time frame to this future, we’ll abstract it out; in this timeline, Year Zero is the beginning of the great “ironic” famine.

  • Year 0 – First crop failures of the Ironic Famine
  • Year 1 – Uprisings in poorer countries; some governments collapse
  • Year 2 – Unrest prompts remaining governments to declare martial law
  • Year 3 – First known infections of the Z-Virus
  • Year 4 – Many national governments voluntarily dissolve, leaving semi-autonomous city-states
  • Year 6 – Global distribution of the Z-Virus resistance serum begins
  • Year 7 – The Pristine Dominion of the Netherlands becomes the first “pheonix” nation to reunite city-states
  • Year 8 – Last reported infection of the Z-Virus
  • Year 12 – The Republic of America declares sovereignty over land of former United States
  • Year 17 – The American Confederacy of Independent City-States announces its first charter in New Portland; the Republic views this as a political protest rather than a declaration of independence
  • Year 23 – The Siberian Commune drafts a constitution and is recognized as sovereign
  • Year 36 – Humanitarian missions into South America find no surviving humans
  • Year 42 – The International Olympic Games are held for the first time since the Famine, but are not repeated
  • Year 58 – Our game begins
