There’s one important, must-ask question I absolutely MUST know the answer to: *ahem* Were dinosaurs a Pre-War thin or a Pre-Pre-War thing? ’Cause Dinky may look friendly…

Soldiers of the Schwarz Reich during a street battle in Munich, circa 2075.

The Schwarz Reich (literally Black Realm or Black Empire) was a breakaway faction of the Euro-German turned German Army that became a not-so-secretly fascist movement to take over Germany and build the Fourth Reich. General Helmut Hoffmann, Supreme Commander of the Army and the Volksführer, built a cult of personality around himself and the famed nationalistic leaders of Germany, namely Bismarck, Frederick the Great, and in some circles, [REDACTED]. By 2077, they had largely taken over much of Germany, fighting off French communists in Alsass-Lothreigen more often than they were fighting the German Republican Army. Even when the United States and China destroyed themselves in nuclear warfare, the European Civil War dragged on and it seemed like Hoffmann would secure his grip on Germany, and this was the case for a few weeks before the ecological effects of the Great War spread across the world. The nuclear war had ripped holes in the ozone layer and millions of tons of ashes were released into the atmosphere. These ashes blocked out the Sun in some parts of the globe, which provided temporary shelter from the brutal UV waves from above, but soon famine and radiation sickness swept the globe, and with it, Europe went quiet with the rest of humanity.
I know this is an older post, but since no one else has pointed this out yet, I guess I could: Schwarzes Reich.

This version of Resident Evil looks like something appropriate to the ATL:


That and Midjourney AI came up with this rendition of Fallout:

 
Not an image, but a video.



A recreation of what an Emergency Alert System on TV and radio in the Southwest Commonwealth might have been like on October 23, 2077.

Recreation was done by the New California Republic in 2277, 200 years after the Great War.

The skyline of Moscow in 1969, with the 1,365 foot tall Palace of the Soviets in the background, which housed the legislative body of the Soviet Union. The Palace was the tallest building in the world from 1955 until 1970. The building itself also sports the worlds largest and worlds tallest statue of Lenin.

I guess the Soviet Union had enough money after World War II to build the Palace of the Soviets. I know that it probably took the World's Tallest Building after its completion in 1955 from the Empire State Building, but what building took its title in 1970?

A photo of American test pilot and astronaut Carl Bell, taken on May 3, 1961, two days before the ill-fated Defiance 7 mission, which resulted in him becoming the first man in space, but also the first man to die on re-entry. Following his death, his wife Edwina controversially donated his body to the Museum of Technology in Washington, D.C.​

Colorized picture of Mikhail Gorbachev, Leader of the USSR from March 11, 1985, to August 30, 2022, taken months before his death.

Gorbachev's reign was marked by democratic reforms in the USSR, improved relations with the West, Eastern Bloc nations breaking away from Moscow, and the USSR's decline on the world stage.
By Gorbachev's death, the People's Republic of China had replaced it as the United States' main rival in the Cold War. However, while later leaders tried to keep the USSR stable in the latter half of the 21st century, tensions had been brewing across the nation. With energy shortages across the world, the USSR fell into civil war that would last until the Great War in 2077.

Pre-war map of Yugoslavia

Following the death of Josip Broz Tito in 1980, ethnic tensions were rising in Yugoslavia. Ultimately a compromise was made to allow greater autonomy in the Yugoslav Republics. Yugoslavia would join the European Commonwealth around the early to mid-2000s. With energy resources declining across the world and the Euro-Middle Eastern War at a stalemate, Yugoslavia was the first nation to declare independence from the Commonwealth in early 2060. Immediately following its declaration of independence, Yugoslavia declared martial law in its republics, starting a brutal civil war that would destroy the country and would officially end with the outbreak of the Great War.

Colorized photo of Taiwanese soldiers after the fall of Nanjing, ca. early 2077.

Taiwan was threatened with invasion by the Chinese ever since the KMT escaped to the island after the mainland fell.
When the Chinese and Americans went to war in 2066, Taiwan declared war on China. The Pacific front was quiet until 2074, when the US and Taiwan launched a joint invasion of the Chinese mainland. On the eve of the Great War, Taiwan, now officially calling itself the Republic of China (ROC), had control of coastal cities, including its old capital Nanjing.
When the Great War started on October 23, 2077, the ROC was hit by atomic bombs. With many leaders killed by the bombs, the ROC fell into chaos. Days after the war, the Republic of China was dissolved.

The election of 2076, the last election in the United States of America.

With the ongoing Sino-American War and the public protesting energy shortages, the election of 2076 proved to be the closest election during the war. The Democratic Party campaigned on ending the war and re-open trade with the rest of the world. The Republican Party campaigned to bring total victory over the Chinese and ensure American citizens would have free energy once the war ended. Ultimately the incumbent Republican won but at a close margin.
While Canada was in the process of being annexed by this election, some Canadian provinces were made into US territories. After the annexation of Canada in 2077, plans were made for Canadian provinces and territories to be made into states, just in time for the election of 2080. Unfourtenly these plans never happen. Months after the election, Alaska was liberated from the Chinese. But on October 23, 2077, the Great War occurred, and the United States and other nations were no more.
