"Our planet's dying and yet we're fighting for its carcass."



"We knew the terrifying truth long before the world started crumbling. Our state leaders never cared about us, their citizens, besides the ones with wealth and power to their name. All of them easily adapted to this brand new world while the rest of us struggled to rebuild. And what were our esteemed leaders doing? Making sure that our destructive capitalist society still maintains the status quo even as we were displaced from our homes. Never forget what happened in Delhi, New Orleans, and Cape Town. Never forget the victims and the survivors. Never forget why we fight for a better tomorrow."
— Kali, anonymous climate activist turned eco-terrorist.



2028: the year that global warming surpassed 1.5°C degrees. It didn't faze world leaders until the first-ever Category 6 hurricane was recorded as it struck the Gulf Coast of the United States. And then, a megafire within the heart of South America was the final nail in the coffin for the Amazon Rainforest, jump-starting its desertification. An emergency climate summit was held in Geneva while more than half of Bangladesh was underwater for a record-breaking monsoon season. But, just like all of the other summits in the past, it did nothing to address the elephant in the room. It was also the last climate summit held.

Two years later, every part of the Earth has experienced or been impacted by climate change. 500 million people were displaced from their homes and became climate refugees overnight. And that number is still growing every day, expecting to reach one billion by the mid-2030s (the best-case scenario). Entire cities had to invest trillions into climate defenses and strategies or were left abandoned if it was no longer safe or sustainable to live in. Global shortages of food and oil are starting to affect the world economy, which economists are afraid would trigger the Second Great Depression along with a major energy crisis.

As the world seemingly enters into unknown territory, the question on everyone's minds from the wealthiest people to the refugees is simply: What will the world look like tomorrow?



Welcome to Our World in Turmoil, a dystopian NRP set on Earth after it surpassed 1.5°C degrees. It only has been two years, but the world has already changed for the worst. Natural disasters are becoming more common and deadly throughout the world. It's all thanks to climate change and it isn't going anywhere soon. Hell, things are about to get way worst. If you have any questions about the lore or anything, feel free to ask away.

Just to be clear, we’d be playing nations as this goes down?

Yes, you'd be playing nations.

You all can say what interests you and I will do a little lore dump about their current state in 2030.

Looks like a fun idea. Ill be sure to take a look. Are we free to customize nations to a degree? Either alternate history or simply from 2022 onward some crazy things happening? Also, are nukes banned?

You can change a country's history from 2020 onward not before that year.

Nuclear weapons aren't banned, but there will be swift consequences for using them.
