In the year 2096, it is a period of darkness as the world as we know has been turned upside down. As the power of each governmental body throughout the world loses its strength due the fact of their overreliance on the corporate powers that aided that each political ruler once used to get more power. The corporations begin to gain control over different parts of the world and by the time the UN stepped in it was too late as several corporate powers began to take up arms against the UN and several governmental powers. Eventually even the UN could do nothing and it eventually dissolved.
In the amount of 5 years most of the world was consumed by pure capitalism as each corporation evolved into megacorporations claiming a part of the world as their own and using its resources to gain more power. Corporations that compete with another on the same product turn resource rich areas into warzones(ex. Apple and Microsoft fighting at Silicon Valley). The only time the corporations gather together is to fight communism due to the fact that all of Eastern Europe and Western Asia have made a new Warsaw Pact with the newly reborn Soviet Union. The only other places not under both sides control are the areas of least desire the areas that have no value what so ever other than to have land. These areas are known as the wastelands.
The rise of true capitalism has also increased the need for hired guns due to the fact that the corporations fighting each other always killed several soldiers enlisted in their main armies. Mercenaries began to create different organizations so that their armies would highly trained and organized to the best of their abilities and how deep their pockets were.
