Mapping the World

I'm being purposefully vague about the borders of this New World in 2088. Not only do I realise that I would have to plan the geo-political earthquakes of the war, but also how that would reflect on populations. So for now, it stays vague.

Some countries will have stayed the same, the ones with long histories and stability of ethnicity and culture. Some will have fragmented, some would have coalesced.

New Hades is, for all intents and purposes, a city-state. I expect that beyond it, there is no other city of that size for hundreds of miles (maybe Viken in the north is the closest). Now this doesn't not mean a Mad Max-like wasteland in between, just smaller villages, smaller towns, connected by old trade and cultural routes. I expect that Western Europe will have been heavily Balkanised after the War, and your average 'country' is now much smaller that it was.

And of course, although another global conflict is to be avoided at all costs, there are dozens  of small skirmishes between countries and/or Corps happening at any given time

The rest of the World? We'll have to see, won't we....?
