    Nicola Sturgeon, current Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of the Celtic Alliance. Ms Sturgeon's time in office has primarily seen increased government funding for social projects, continuing to build on the strong foundation for gender and minority rights built into the 2009 Constitution, and maintaining the Celtic Alliance as a major power in its part of the world.

    Katie McGrath, Irish actress and now Eire's newest MP in the Celtic Parliament. A politician of extremely liberal persuasions, she's particularly active in working for women's and minority rights, and in supporting the current government's agenda with regard to increased social spending. She's particularly beloved by young voters.

    An antique show in Auckland, ANZC showing artifacts recovered from the former United States. Events like this are popular with both American expats and younger people curious about pre Doomsday culture.

    A few different things. She's done stage work, in college and in the Abbey Theatre, as well as some of the Celtic Alliance's main films (including most famously The Darkness Within a thriller/mystery film about a troubled young Dublin woman who acts as an anti-hero private detective - think Girl with the Dragon Tattoo only Celtic :p ) In more light entertainment, before she embarked on a career in politics she was one of the two stars in Great Power, a series about a young woman in college in Dublin who begins to develop superpowers and becomes a superhero - she played the main character's room-mate/best friend and confidante/ultimately significant other. Production values were somewhat on a par with Lois and Clark but made up for it by good writing and good character work.

    Bloodless Coup of 1987 in the Philippines
    On 14 December 1986, classified documents were leaked into anti-Marcos channels, primarily military and activist elements; by former members of Marcos' inner circle. The papers and photos confirmed not only the "secret debriefing" of Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino's assassination - about a month before Doomsday - but also confirmation of the mass killings ordered by Marcos himself. Public reaction quickly exploded across much of the country, prompting the government to renew crackdowns on dissidents. A major incident was the Veritas Standoff in February 1987: several activists and Catholic clergymen held themselves inside the old Radio Veritas Building (Manila), broadcasting religious and pro-democracy messages, until soldiers opened fire on the building; 14 casualties was the official tally. Amidst the renewed upheaval, Marcos' grip on the nation grew increasingly weaker, as various elements of society went in unison against him, including the Communist NPA (New People's Army) and Islamic MNLF (Moro National Liberation Front).

    All this culminated in the "Bloodless Coup of '87." (also known as the People Power Revolution). On 21 June 1987, a near simultaneous uprising, led by former inner circle member Juan Ponce Enrile, took place nationwide as protesters overwhelmed government installations in peaceful marches of solidarity and faith. At 3:47 PM local time, rebellious soldiers under Enrile's direct command seized control of New Baguio, arresting Marcos and his remaining staff in a "Mandate of the people;" Marcos' "Bagong Lipunan" (New Society; Second Republic) came to an end with barely a shot fired. The (former) Presidential Family was placed under house arrest 22 kms. east of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte. Marcos would die of heart failure in 1990.

    The aircraft that flew Korean Airlines Flight 007 - HL7442 - on the ground in Hong Kong, possibly just days before its final flight as KAL 007 on September 1, 1983. The shootdown of KAL 007 was the last string of international tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union which occurred just 25 days before Doomsday.

    USS New Jersey off the coast of Lebanon firing at suspected Soviet warships, bet. Sept. 26-October 10, 1983. The New Jersey was slightly damaged after a Soviet nuclear warhead detonated in the ocean which destroyed a significant portion of the IMF fleet, including the USS Dwight Eisenhower aircraft carrier.

    The Toyota Wars between Chad and Libya continued even after the bombs flew on Doomsday.

    French Foreign Legion troops stranded in Chad during the Toyota Wars. Doomsday meant the war would continue between Chad and Libya while the French troops supported the Chadians as they had no means to get back to France.
