Part 1: A New World
The year is 1987. Instead of the USSR signing a treaty to devolve the Soviet Union, the USA signs a treaty to become a communist country.
With the transition of the USA to communism, Canada and South America quickly follow suit and create the American Communist Union (ACU).
The EU, which united to fight communism and fascism decades ago, quickly puts down their arms as the forces of the USSR, ACU, and China are too much to resist. And thus the EU becomes apart of the USSR.
Nearly all Asia countries transition to communism under China’s rule and it is called the Asian Communist Alliance (ACA).
Oceania is largely operating under their own rule, but have adopted communism and have formed the Oceania Communist Pact (OCP).
The Middle East and Africa is in the process of transitioning to communism but each nation is in a cold-proxy war to join either the USSR or the ACA which are the new two global superpowers quietly fighting for global dominance.
Thus, the world now falls into mainly four large communist governments.
USSR, which is the most powerful as the originators of Marxism and communist philosophy.
ACA, which has the largest population and is at the cutting edge of communist policy reform and it’s integration with technology.
ACU, which is new to communism but has strong fundamental infrastructure.
OCP, is by far the smallest of the communist superpowers.
Several years go by as the world adjusts to centralized authority across all aspects of life. The first aspects to become centralized are education and media.
The narrative of history changes to idolize Marxism, Stalin and Mao as leaders of communist ideals. The suffering that the people of these communist countries endured during the 20th century is completely erased from history. Capitalism and Western ideals are portrayed as failed concepts due to their decentralized nature and progressive values that come from the people vs. the government.
The new education system focuses on training people for specific tasks to fit the governments objectives. From a young age, citizens are tested based on their abilities. By the time they turn 18, they are directed down a work path by their respective governments. There is no choice, the government best identifies people’s capabilities and places them in roles.
Just as education becomes controlled so does the media. There is one media organization for each government. They put out centralized messaging around global events. Any newspaper and news channel is all broadcasted by government officials.
Soon enough, all companies and infrastructure that existed prior to the global communist revolution are transferred over to the governments. Private property is no longer a concept. You are given a home based on your government assigned occupational role.
After years of adjusting to this new global order, something happens in the 2000s. The internet is born.
This global computer network of information and communication is run by the governments. It’s used to identify, track and see all information online. There are only several websites all of which were created to support the governments needs. Some include your personal information passport, capabilities scorecard and occupation evaluation. The government views the internet as a way to share their messages with the world and to manage their people.
The government ensures that all aspects of your life are taken care of. For the most part, the world was quite stable for many years.
Several decades go by.
The year is 2030. Some adults are now working and never knew the old world. Culturally, people have adjusted and the thought of going back to the old world becomes a distant memory.
