The beginning of beginnings, the rise of ChalcedonismChristianity, the Year of our Lord and Savior, 52 AD, February 28th.

At this time, Rome Rome is a sort of glass cannon, with a humongous country, many problems are had with things including religion and the threat of the many minor Barbarianbarbarian powers, and the enemy of Parthia Parthia. ChineseAsian powers are very strong with many large and powerful nations. West AfricanAfrica has very few countries until later when some countries spawn.

The fall of Rome Rome, and the establishment of new religions and countries in the powder keg that is Europe.

From around 300 AD to around 700 AD Rome was in a state of collapse, falling to the Barbarians who have vast hordes of men ready to fight in order to gain land. ChalcedonismChristianity becomes truly powerful in Europe during this period, expanding throughout the continent. ChineseAsia is recovering from the great turmoil of the Three Kingdoms era, creating a new unity under the Han Han dynasty. This new reign would be seen as the "golden age" of China, where peace and prosperity were found after the tumultuous era of war. Meanwhile, a new power is beginning to stir in the MuslimMiddle East under a new prophet under the name of "Muhammad" who turns the gears for the rise of Sunni IslamIslam, a new religion that eventually rises to the status of that which rivals its neighbors of CatholicismChristianity.

The 9th century.

The British Isles are in chaos. Europe is dominated by the united Francia Franks ruled by Charlemagne, and the Francia Franks are a major force ready to expand at any moment. Iberia has been run-over by the Sunni IslamMuslims, but the Sunni IslamMuslims slowly begin to be pushed of Europe. The OrthodoxyChristianization of the Balkans has begun, and the Religion norseVikings are preparing to invade their neighbors for the glory of their gods.

The 11th Century

The Iberian Peninsula is riddled with religious tension. The northern peninsula composes of CatholicismCatholic nations, whilst the zealous Sunni IslamSunni nations exist in the south. The Normandy Norman invasion of England England has begun in northern France.

The 13th Century

The Mongol Empire Mongols have swept throughout China and Europe, their loose and vast numbers looming over Europe, however the Empire, like the Rome Romans, is largely overextended, and bound for collapse with the two Khanate brothers on the throne.

The 14th Century

The Black Death rips through Europe, but both England England and France France are fighting in the Hundred Years' War. The Yuan Yuan in China are being overtaken by the Ming Ming. Meanwhile, after defeating Serbia Serbia, Byzantium Byzantium, and other beyliks, the Ottomans Ottomans are rising in the east...

The 15th Century

The Ottomans Ottomans have risen from a lowly beylik to a kingdom. However, the Timurids Timurids were looming over the kingdom, and attacked at the Battle of Ankara. An interregnum soon followed, and from the ashes, the Ottomans Ottoman Empire rose to defeat the Byzantium Byzantine and Venice Venetian Empires, and had forged a great empire from the remnants of Serbia Serbia, Bosnia Bosnia, Wallachia Wallachia, and Moldavia Moldavia. Flag of Poland Poland, 800px-Lithuania (1) Lithuania, and Hungary Hungary tried to defeat the young empire, but they lost. Speaking of Flag of Poland Poland and 800px-Lithuania (1) Lithuania, Flag of Poland Poland now leads a Personal Union over 800px-Lithuania (1) Lithuania that is sure to form the Commonwealth Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Venice Venice owns a large trading empire, despite being a small citystate. They rely on the Ottomans Ottoman Empire for trading goods. The Hundred Years' War is drawing to a close, and France France seems to be the sure winner. However, the England English and France French rivalry will last until the 1870s. Muscovy Muscovy and Novgorod Novgorod are set to fight for control of Russia Russia. Flag of Brandenburg Brandenburg (once it'll form Prussia Prussia) and Austria Austria will fight for control of the Holy Roman Empire Holy Roman Empire (and eventually Germany Germany). In the north, Denmark Denmark will rule all three major Scandinavian realms under a personal union. Norway Norway is fine with this, but Sweden Sweden sees Denmark Denmark's ambitions to create a united Scandinavia Scandinavia. Portugal Portugal has the navy to explore Africa and India. Castile Castile has the ambition to form Spain Spain by conquering Granada Granada and annexing Aragon Aragon, but a young admiral's idea will take them to meet the Natives Natives of the New World, and Spain Spain will rule the largest empire since the Mongols...

The 16th Century

The 1500s is considered the rise of Europe for good reason. Castile Castile (and after 1516, Spain Spain) fought the Aztec Aztec and the Inca Inca to establish the largest empire since the Mongols. In 1508, the War of the League of Cambrai started, and several great and regional powers (Spain Spain, Venice Venice, France France, The Papal State The Papal State, Ferrara Ferrara, and Milan Milan) warred with each other over control of Italy. France and Venice emerged the winners, but after Spain Spain inherited Milan Milan and Naples Naples, the balance in Italy was again upset. In 1517, the Reformation exploded out of Germany, and the Holy Roman Empire Holy Roman Empire was rocked to its core. Out of the Reformation emerged the Netherlands Netherlands, a trading superpower that would overshadow Portugal Portugal, but it first had to fight Spain Spain for its independence.

The Year of our Lord 2018, and everything seems to be stable, except...

In the modern era of 2018, tensions are rising between North Korea North Korea and the United States of America USA, meanwhile the European Union European Union is centralizing more and more with Germany Germany being the main political and economic influence in it. The outbreak of World War III seems to be more realistic than ever since the recent event of North Korea North Korean's dictator making nuclear tests with weapons flying over Japan Japan. A war between the United States of America USA and North Korea North Korea is possible and it would drag several other countries into the war like Germany Germany or France France because of the NATO. Albert Einstein once said "I don't know what weapons World War III will be fought with, but I know that World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones".
