I myself will be the GM and my goals are to set up convenient plot lines for you to follow, but you pick the actual outcomes and story. For example, I might drop a piece of intel that tells you that a general will be in a position for assassination, but you were already planning something else. Do you want to take the general out? Or do you want to continue with the plans you have already? That's what's up to you. From time to time I might set up a sort of plotline without permission, but that's because I want to make things interesting, so I might do something like have one of you get shot in the arm or leg to take you out of the next fight.

Nations of the World
People's Union of Britannia Following an organized revolution in 2193, the majority of the British Isles came under control of the People's Union, a group that claims to be dedicated to advancing the people of Britain after the failure of the previous government to provide security. Records show, however, that the People's Union was responsible for the bombings to instigate the change in government. Since the take-over, the majority of citizens are kept under constant guard in contained enclaves, cities transformed into megacenters to better enable the government to control and dominate the citizens.
European Union Founded in the late 20th century, the European Union is one of the most powerful unions on the planet, uniting most of Europe into a commonwealth where the myriad of languages and cultures can work together to secure a future. Most Europeans swear loyalty to the Union first rather than their own countries, and the universal language of the Union has become a sort of hybrid language mixing French, German and English into a new language known as Unity. The EU maintains close ties to Britain but their relationship is complex, making it impossible to tell if Britain is a member or not.
United Socialist Republic of North America Following the collapse of the American economy in the early 21st century, the government that emerged rewrote the Constitution to better provide for the people and prevent further damage from occurring. By merging with Canada and later Mexico, the USR is the largest nation on the planet. Despite the name, the USR still allows private business, but with greater government oversight to prevent further collapse. The USR also makes extensive use of robotics and cybernetics, making them one of the most advanced nations on Earth.
United Asian Commonwealth The disastrous Indo-Chinese War of 2069 left vast parts of both India and China devastated. The two countries, already severely overcrowded, were dealt a serious blow, throwing millions upon millions of conscripts at each other. The carnage was so severe that entire new mountains of bones remain to this day. Both countries only stopped fighting after atomics were used, leaving almost 2 billion dead. With the two regional superpowers out of commission, the remaining countries began to fuse together to form larger regions and bring economic prosperity. The UAC is one of the least technological regions of the world, but their manufacturing output is second to none.
African Federation The African Federation was founded by reclusive billionaire Scott Hendrix to build stability out of a continent traditionally mired by warlords and tribes. While the majority of Africa remains lawless and in chaos, the member states of the African Federation enjoy longer lives and economic prosperity unseen before on the continent. The Federation is one of the more militant nations, needing to defend itself from Islamic Fundamentalists and rogue warlords, and their military prowess makes them respected soldiers around the world. A special division known as the Sniper Squad Zulu is so proficient with their rifles that Warlords surrender at the mere mention they're being stalked by them.
United Orbital Collective Centered around Orbital 1, the UOB is a collection of self-sufficient orbital habitats built in the Lagrange point between Earth and the Moon. Originally intended to be a resupply point linking the two, after the collapse of lunar development projects, Orbital 1 was due to be decommissioned. However, those board Orbital 1 declared their intentions to stay, and have been slowly building ever since. Using resources from the moon and a few from Earth, they've hauled asteroids to the station to serve as room to grow and gather resources. Today, the UOC collectively boasts 528 habitat modules and a population of 3600.
