    A pre-Doomsday photograph of the Embassy of the United States of America to the Republic of the Philippines. The building once served displaced Americans in the Philippines stranded for nearly decade after Doomsday. Stranded American citizens and nationals include U.S. military personnel that successfully escaped the strikes in Baguio, Subic, and Olongapo, tourists, businessmen, and embassy staff including Ambassador Michael J. Armacost. Upon contact and establishing diplomatic relations, it now serves as the embassy of the Commonwealth of Australia and New Zealand.

    Thai Communist Party insurgents with captured U.S.-manufactured firearms at the height of the Thai Communist Insurgency. The People's Republic of China pulled out support to the communists once normal relations with the Kingdom of Thailand were established in 1976. The insurgency itself ended in 1983 just a few months prior to Doomsday.

    PLA soldiers at a security checkpoint on Taiyuan, one of the major surviving chinese cities was Taiyuan, Shanxi Province. Having not been hit by nuclear weapons and being in an area largely unaffected by fallout, with access to agricultural resources, and with its history as a communist stronghold, the remnants of the Chinese government convened in Taiyuan to establish a temporary capital. Martial law was declared in all of China but due to a lack of working communications equipment only those units capable of receiving and within range of older short range radio technology were able to heed the orders.

    Rack of Prototype Beretta automatic rifles on display. Beretta's factories escaped destruction post-Doomsday and as a result, the gun company continues to sell arms to Italian survivor states and members of the Atlantic Defense Community.

    Contras rebels continue their fight against the Sadinistas despite losing their supplier of arms, the United States. The Nicaraguan Revolution subsequently spilled over to neutral Costa Rica in the following years after Doomsday.

    Abandoned Dutch village, sixth months following the aftermath of the tragic event which left much of populace either wiped out due to Doomsday but since with the destruction of flood control dikes, much of the country was now radioactive underwater.

    The Newcastle Opera House, Australia. An almost perfect replica of the beloved cultural site that was destroyed when the missiles fell on Sydney in 1983. Newcastle absorbed most of the refugees from that city afterwards, so it was no surprise that it would become Sydney's successor.

    A family from a northern California suburb doing an impromptu funeral for a radiation casualty a week after Doomsday. Their town was far enough away from any major city to avoid blast damage but it was heavily irradiated due to the jet stream blowing fallout from the Bay Area northward. Most of the town either fled or died from radiation sickness and it was virtually abandoned by the end of the year. (Source: Testament)

    An abandoned Ruckersville house after the town was raided by desperate refugees and depopulated as a result. Still standing over 15 years later. Animated gif showing the roof damage.
