2077 War for the Earth


The year is 2077, and the world has been suffering effects of global warming for the past century. Warmer summers caused more ice to melt, increasing ocean levels ever so slightly. Amidst this, people had different opinions on the matter, from believing that this is natural, to thinking something must be done. While the groups were debating, getting little done, a new group of radical environmentalists, known as the Gaeans, have sprung up. They believe drastic measures must be taken to save the planet, mainly involving killing off large amounts of their own and foreign people. Will the rest of the people put aside their differences to fight off the Gaeans, while still protecting the planet, or will the Gaeans reach their goal of destroying much of the human race to save planet earth?

National Information
Full Nation Name: The Polystate Republic of Aeternitatia

History:
- Founding History
- Recent History: Aeternitatia has long had stakes in many countries across the globe, with citizens in over 100 nations world wide. As a long time proponent of global development, small government, economic deregulation, and increased freedoms, the landless nation's influence can be felt worldwide. Now that the radical Gaean group has grown to power in many of the nations in which Aeternitatian citizens reside, the government feels it must intervene in order to protect its citizens. However; Aeternitatia has long held a strict neutrality policy and a "no-exceptions" stance on political unions/alliances. Currently the only way for Aeternitatia to go to war is if its citizens are targeted and harmed, or if Idras is attacked. The government is currently discussing an amendment that would curb the neutrality policy in the case of a "world war" level conflict, but only time will tell how much progress can be made. For now, Aeternitatia maintains both its neutrality and its sovereignty. There are international diplomatic discussions being held to gain short-term protection for Aeternitatian citizens in radical foreign nations. But, in the event of a diplomatic meltdown, or military escalation, Aeternitatians are prepared to immediately evacuate their home countries. The government hopes this will never need to happen.

Function In Roleplay
I understand that my nation is unorthadox with having no land claims. The reason for this is that my capital is located on a space station named Idras, more information.

My "game" or purpose in the roleplay shall be focused on protecting, rescuing, relocating, and negotiating the release of my citizens (which reside in other nations). Some of the citizens may already live in realist states, but some will reside in gaean controlled territory. This will make my roleplay unique and interesting as I deal with this issue.

My military will have to reside in realist states. I will have to take time to move my troops and vehicles between realist states and into gaean territory, and all of my military actions will have to be conducted from realist states. As a suggestion, if military bases and stations are going to be mapped out, mine could be "shared locations" (however, not literally shared) with other nations' bases on the map for simplicity.

If there are any issues, or there are other ideas that could make this more realistic, I am open to criticism.

National Information
Full Nation Name: The Gaean Republic of Great Britain and Ireland
History: In response to the worsening environment, a faction of the Green party broke off and formed the UK branch of the Gaeans. They slowly gained popularity through the decades. In 2066, as much of the UK was celebrating the thousand year anniversary of the royal family, it was also the warmest year since the previous year, which was also the warmest since the previous, etc. The Gaeans had slowly been arming themselves. In an election not long before, a Gaean Prime Minister by the name of Harrison Scott was elected, and the parliaments of all four constituent countries have Gaean majorities despite receiving nowhere close to half the vote. Mass protests began in late 2066 against the Gaeans. Realizing how unpopular they were, the Gaeans staged a coup and took full control of the UK, jailing all opposition, including the royal family. The next decade was spent purging the country of the opposition. Carter Wilkinson, the current Prime Minister, is now in a power struggle with Scott over control of the party and the UK. Both agree that radical action must be takento preserve the environment, but besides that, they disagree on many other issues.

National Information
Full Nation Name: The New Hierarchy of Amazonia
History: As industrialization and economic development of Brazil continued throughout the 2020s to 2040s, more and more forested lands and rainforests were decimated as communities popped up across the Brazilian landscape. Despite significant advances in eco-sustainable technology, Brazilian corporations and polluters continued to use production methods that generated massive amounts of pollution and required steady streams of fossil fuels and non-renewable resources. Those in the northeast typically voted for US-liberal type politicians (Who were steadily moving left) while those in the rest of the country voted for US-conservative type politicians, who were largely influenced by Donald Trump (2017-2025) and other right-wing populists.

In the 2050 general election, left-wing candidate Bento Guerra won in an upset victory, being the first candidate to win in some southeastern states in decades. This was also the same year that the Gaean movement had held a 2-million person demonstration in Brasilia, the still-capital of the nation. Guerra quickly reversed on his statements that he wouldn't implement radical policies, however, and quickly seized control of key mining and lumber industries, bringing all assets of these companies under government control. Guerra also put in place numerous Gaean-aligned cabinet members and military officers, and by 2059 the Brazilian Republic was dissolved by Gaean justices and Bento. Though the nation's mining operations were not halted in order to continue producing vital machinery in preserving Brazil, the lumber industry was more or less halted and billions of dollars were spent on rainforest restoration efforts, a large portion of that money having come from the defunct companies' assets.

In 2061, Brazil invaded Bolivia and Paraguay, quickly overrunning them and integrating the territories into the 'New Hierarchy of Amazonia' under Gaean governor-generals. Genocide of political opponents or anyone who were not obvious Gaeans began in these territories, with hundreds of ghost towns forming and then being demolished. French Guiana and Suriname were invaded in 2064, and similar genocides began in those territories. 25% of the population of southeast Brazil was wiped out between 2060 and 2077. Bento Guerra died in 2074, and an advanced super-AI took control of his position.

Currently, Amazonia is continuing a steady military build-up and still spending billions yearly on environmental restoration. The nation still produces notable amounts of pollution through its military-related industries, though AI has largely been integrated into the army, reducing the need for soldier provisions. Genocide continues in all of Amazonia's possessions, and dozens of communities are bulldozed a year.
