The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Often shortened to United Kingdom or UK) was a Pre-war nation, located on the British Isles in northwest Europe. It was one of the most powerful nations in all of Europe and owned an empire that stretched across the whole world and was one of the founding members of the European Commonwealth prior to the Great War.
After World War Two ended in 1945, the United Kingdom and it's empire were in ruins. London had been destroyed by the Luftwaffe, along with other towns and cites in the vicinity; most of their colonies in Asia had been also destroyed by the invasion of the Japanese in its territory; and there was countless numbers of dead from the war.
After Churchill's victory in the post-war election, he began working with his advisers and other economic thinkers to put strength back in the U.K.'s economy. Churchill and other conservatives saw the threat of the Soviet Union in Eastern Europe.
With a combination of mild government programs and less regulations and taxes, the economy flourished. With this new abundance of wealth, England set off to rebuild its war-torn colonies in Asia and demolished Europe. This quick recovery greatly contributed to the Divergence in Europe, as England was able to quickly build up its military strength and help the United States fight off any hint of the spread of communism. In the 1970's the British government was amazed after the US and USSR had rebuilt their relations and began a campaign against China throughout the 1980's until 1996 when the US and China halted their tensions and attempted to rebuilt shattered relations.
21st Century Edit
As the 21st Century began the United Kingdom was at its height as the British Commonwealth was bigger than ever and all of the British colonies were rebuilt to pre-war conditions with all insurgencies crushed or too weak to launch any major uprising however insurgencies from the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda remained a problem but was destroyed by 2004. The bright shining era of British dominance however came to a halt following the start of the 2050s as the global oil supplies began to run low and the Middle East constantly raising their prices. The British government began massive buildups as the European Commonwealth had began to prepare itself for war and new military buildups in an effort to combat the formation of the United Arab Coalition and he increasing military presence on the Turkish-Syrian boarder. By 2052 the British Army with support from the European military launched a massive invasion of the middle east officially starting the Resource Wars.
Middle East Campaign Edit
During the early days of the Resource Wars the European Forces were winning endless victories as the UAC was too low to launch a strong defensive position and by 2053 the British Royal Forces were launching a massive offensive on the Arabian peninsula and soon British bombers helped British/European troops advance deep into the UAC's most religious city of Mecca. Riots soon broke out in London as the British Army was soon forced to open fire on Muslim protesters when the protests became riots and soon the streets of London were flooding with blood and the entire nation was put under martial law. That same year a group of British muslims were captured by Israel after they were attempting to give away intelligence to the UAC forces stationed in Saudi Arabia. In 2054 the city of Tel Aviv was obliterated by a nuclear bomb by Palestinian insurgents in response to the Fall of Mecca and soon British nukes began to fall on strategic Middle Eastern and North African cities. Following a failed invasion of southern Europe, the UAC had finally surrendered after 8 ears of bloodshed and the UAC had finally collapsed as the British Forces returned home as heroes and celebrated their triumph in the Middle East however that celebration was short lived as following the collapse of the European Commonwealth, Germany began to wage war.
War with Germany and Colonial Insurgencies EditFollowing the collapse of the European Commonwealth, former member states began to take sides and smaller nations in Europe went completely bankrupt with the lack of oil brought home. British Prime Minister Even Cameron soon addressed the British Parliament in March of 2060 about the threat of newly elected German Chancellor Konrad Heller and his choice to annex German speaking regions and thins soon turned worse when the Greater German Confederacy was established and Hungary invaded Romania. As The European Wars began and tore apart Europe, the Sino-American War had began and American aid was no longer an option as the UK was left on its own to defend itself. As the British Army was sent in to defend France following a German military offensive in 2065, Separatists in British colonies began to gain ground and used the unstable condition in Europe to fight the colonial governments leading to numerous uprisings from South Africa to Rhodesia further intensifying the conflict and expanding the scope of the war. By October 23rd of 2077, the Great War had began and reduced the world to ruins and Britain along with it.
The UK had already been reduced to rubble from years of conventional warfare when the nuclear fires fell from the sky on October 23, 2077. Nevertheless, major British cities like London, Glasgow and Birmingham were still the target of many atomic bombs, compounding the already nearly-complete destruction of British infrastructure.
The few survivors of the war were then faced with a hellish period of disease and sickness, lasting decades. At one point, the entire British population numbered in the thousands. However, much like the United States, British survivors slowly began to rebuild their society to the best of their abilities.
