3rd March 2017 was a normal day like no other. Then a person in America crossing states saw nothing. People in Canada found wifi was gone and some countries saw there had been no contact from some of their international friends. Then the news Broke and everybody screamed. Europe and the North Atlantic have mostly disappeared as well as much of the pacific. The screaming continued for days.

After a year, recolonization has been taken place to a certain extent. Global trade has recovered mostly. The US in the initial instability failed to keep itself together and several countries have taken advantage of this. Central America is in the first stages of unification, though it will take a while. And even though the world has mostly recovered from the ISOTs, everyone is still screaming...

Also I think USA could have remained unified. Other than that this has very large economic consequences. Also would definitely be the beginning of the Era of Chinese Superpower if they weather the global economic collapse that is the result of Europe and coastal USA disapeering.
