A peaceful country, Canada got caught up in the action with Europe and America, taking it's "big brothers" side as usual. Ground Zero for the war, Canada was completely destroyed. Nothing but a wasteland at this point, Canada's forests, lakes, and cities are all wiped clean. The bomb having landed in Manitoba, everything appears as if it was being pushed away from that area. Trees all sway to the outside of it, though most are dead, and the buildings are either leaning or fell from that direction. Hudson Bay is a murky green, very swampy with who-knows-what living inside of it. All I know is if you live in Canada, expect some trouble. Moderator:Alphas
Spreading down from Manitobo, the blast continued on through North Dakota, destroying it and it's south counterpart completely. The destruction traveling in a wide arc, the damage here is still quite extensive, even if not as bad as Canada. Some buildings are still standing, and could make a great shelter if not for the fact that they have massive holes throughout them. Fires constantly burn here as well as Canada from the residual nuclear energy and radioactivity. Moderator:Alphas
Brazil originally had a massive rain forest, called the amazon, located within it. Now, it has nothing. All of Brazil is gone, and now covered in black ash. Completely level, it is just a massive desert of black ash instead of sand. Moderator:Alphas
With all the explosions and whatnot, Chile actually broke off from the rest of south america and floated in the waters for a while, before 'rooting' in the evaporating water levels. It is now nearly 200 miles away from where it originally was, but other then that, not much happened. It's been flooded a few times and is obviously destroyed, but most of it is still intact.

Kenya was once a tropical and happy place, with many ostriches and agriculture. After the war, this place was not too harsly harmed. Most building remain standing, with some damage and the obvious fires aluminating about. Fortunantly, the Kenyan Highlands comprise one of the most successful agricultural production regions in Africa. The highlands are the site of the highest point in Kenya, which reaches 5,199 m (17,057 ft) and is the site of glaciers, if one were needed water or any herbes, this would be the place to go. Aside from this, the agriculture and soil were totally wiped because of the intense temperatures, not much grows here and is is twice as hot as normal, hope you can take the heat. Moderator:Alphas
What was the fastest growing economy in the world, is now a dark and gloomy destroyed place. There was a large amount of oil in Nigeria before the war, and in fact, was the largest exporter of oil in Africa. Thanks to the bomb, the oil was spilled all over and most caught fire instantanously. Also, due to the radioactivity all around, plenty of hazardous acid rain falls here frequently, occaisionally putting a stopper to the fire. When the rain stops (for awhile, anyway), Nigeria is back up in flames once more, please keep your tail by your side on the ride at all times. Moderator:Alphas
The desolate sand region of Egypt didn't change too harshly. Not much to be destroyed, besides the pyramids, long since shattered and looted, as well as the towns, completely wasted. The sands of the deserts turned to glass because of the heat, which is almost completely shattered again. This is now a massive country of broken glass.

Strangely enough, no nuclear bomb was dropped directly onto the island state, but the heatstorms and radiation of the bombs dropped on Germany, Italy and Russia took care of whiping out human life here.
Cities are only gigantic, skelettal facades, with eternal radiation fires burning inside. Roaming through these cities, many Animal-Human hybrids can be seen, with nearly no intellect - England is one of the most dangerous lands to live in as a survivor. The countryside is a gigantic ashland, and everywhere, there is constant, thick radioactive rain falling down. London got nearly swept away during the ten year flood and is under water for big parts now. This is of course home and shelter to many sea creature hybrids.
Scottland basicially had the same fate at first, but gigantic radioactive storms on its coast finally ripped apart the land. Only very few tiny islands now remain of this land. Moderator:Alphas
Half of France is now counted as a part of the 'German Sea', the gigantic crater system that remains of the center of Europe. The rest is a wasteland with constant, heavy rain and thunderstorms that hit EVERYTHING made out of metal nearly constantly, giving it the nickname 'Thunder Planes' under mutants. Oddly enough, the rests of France have maybe the strongest lingering radiation in Europe, apart from the few parts of Russia that are counted as a part.
This not only leads to the gigantic lightning storms, but also to an electromagnetic field that turns any electronic equipment in nearly all of europe useless. A RAD-meter would show at least 200 RAD everywhere in France, but thanks to the constant thunder strikes, nearly no shelter can be found in this wasteland. Only the bravest of the brave enter, and very few come back.
Also, anomalies through strong storms are frequent here. These anomalies evolve thanks to strong electromagnetic fields and radiation, and can cause disruptions in gravity, making it up to ten times stronger or halving it, and are said to even initiate visions of far away places, the past... and the future. If this is true is a mistery, however. Moderator:Alphas
This is what remains from Germany, the alpine mountains, large parts of Italy, Poland, and many other countries of Europe. Being the center of the nuclear explosions, two gigantic craters formed in Germany - and with the explosions, the heat waves, radiation and electromagnetism caused weapons all over Europe to explode, ripping deep scars into the land. Also, the extreme heat of that day evaporated large amounts of water - lakes and streams all over the world dried out, and much water of the oceans also evaporated. The thick, black radioactive clouds center to a big part over this crater land, and fill it with a constant, thick stream of rain.
The single craters are all connected by streams and cracks in their borders. The strong lingering radiation even causes fires to erupt UNDER the water and burn for most likely centuries, causing geysirs and fountains of scorching hot water. The general heat of the world and these fires cause a constant, over 60° Celcius temperature in each and every sea and lake of this area.
Many islands of rubble, radioactive waste and old war machines drift afloat of the now toxic seas. A swim in here can reveal ruined cities under the water, secret treasures... and the ensured death. Nobody knows what exactly lurks in these waters, but a swim can easily end deadly. The fact that you need special eyes for seeing underwater while swimming doesn't help to make things safe, either.
Radioactive anomalies often cause water twisters, sudden storms and even very literal HOLES in the water that spontanously fill up again. Moderator:Alphas
Russia was formerly a mostly frozen place. Now, with the heated up earth atmosphere and the drop of the nuclear bombs ten years ago, Russia is a gigantic swamp, greedily swallowing all life in it. The ruined cities are black, partially still burning, and being the only light source in the constant darkness of the nuclear winter. Still, Russia is one of the darkest places in existance, since relatively few radiation fires burn here.
If you thought Chernobyl before the war looked bad, try to take a look at Moscow now. Moderator:Alphas
One of the smaller countries in the world, was just about halved with the dropping of the bomb. What is left of Japan is nothing but broken buildings and plenty of shrapnel everywhere. Everywhere is covered in fog and can get extremely hard to see at some points, it is a generally dark area, hope you have good eyesight! Moderator:Alphas
Due to all the radioactivity in the remains of China, and the destruction of most buildings, dust storms have become usual here, blowing around debris and all sorts of things. A dust storm often blows around unusable things, but often enough if you take cover during these storms, coming out from one can occaisionally provide treasure that were stirred about in the storm.

As you all know, a large chunk of Japan had been destroyed thanks the bomb… or so it seemed. Kaisimir Kek and his gang of Watchers have just recently discovered the missing piece of Japan. This large piece of land has been taken over by bats, rats, and many other vermenous and dangerous creatures. To all of those hybrids who are easily frightened, here would be your fuckin’ Nightmare. The ground is covered in bones and ash, and a cool, creepy breeze often blows around here; giving it the feel of an over dramatic graveyard. Many buildings and arches are in pieces now, though every once in awhile pieces of civilization and architecture stand around, making it look curious and in need of inspection. Though, this is a clever ruse for the naive, this can be either filled with profit, or chaos to anyone who trespasses. The heat stroke ridden weather, the barren empty sights, there are No oasis here to see, the sand is singing deathless words to the creatures here. To be honest, they are sorry you're not here they’ve been sane too long and their vision's so unclear. Now take a trip with us, but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem. ~
New Zealand, a prosperous country filled with agriculture, joy, and a fair amount of people. With the help of the war, this happy town was turned to rubble and a few pieces broke off of it, leaving it a bit smaller than before, but not too much chaos was caused here. The soil in New Zealand is still fairly fertile, and grass along with small weeds grows here and there on occasion. The buildings are still very shaken up and not always stable, but still contain many useful items humans left behind in panic, or were left in their homes without knowing the end was near. New Zealand is filled with treasure and interesting things, but be warned, you may not be the only one looking for trinkets in this country. Moderator:Alphas
Australia is... completely fine. It had been avoided entirely during the war, and people still lived here in perfect harmony. The people living on it aren't really sure why the radiation didn't hit them, but they aren't going to test it and see if it does. The only reason Hybrids hadn't found it yet was because none knew of it's existence. When boats are made, etc, maybe someone someday will find Australia. Moderator:Alphas
The Wastelands, or, Southern Russia, as some call it, is virtually Russia’s twin now. Once frozen completely, now has melted and transformed into a large swamp. Many amphibians live here, as well as some ‘mummified’ icebergs that stick up out of the ground to look almost like cliffs. If you look at these ‘cliffs’ however, you may notice they appear to look like large bones from a deceased and decaying animal, which is not always inviting to some. It is also wise to be an avian around here, what you find lurking deep within the muck and water could get dangerous, dwelling here may not always be wise for the faint of heart. Enjoy your stay.
