overview I remember the old days.. Before the government fell, overpopulation got out of control, and food/water wasn't a scarcity. Back before war was happening 24/7 and going to school was about mathematics and science, but now all of that's changed... It all started when the United States government lost control of its power, and China's economy fell. The white house was taken down about a year ago, when the United State's formed a rebellion and shot it down. There were many people that died in the civil war, most of them weren't even involved they were just trying to survive among the rebel of the war. Though when other countries found out about the United State's problems they started new wars, terrorist attacks, and evading the Untied States trying to claim the fallen country as theirs. China on the other hand, once a powerful country, had fallen into the low level country it used to be because of the United States no longer buying their products. Making getting buy even harder, so pulling the one card they never thought they would have to pull. Chinese government demanded U.S land in as a payment to the debt the U.S had created over the years. When they U.S people found out China's declaration, they grew even more mad and even with all the shit they had pilled on them, the U.S people tried fighting off the Chinese, in return starting another war the world didn't need. Now 15 years later the world is in chaos. There's hardly any food, the animals had died off from the effects of the warfare happening still constantly today, water is being poisoned as well, and everyone has started to learn from the early years of a child... getting close to someone, is death. How this happened to be is because children's parents were killed off or died of sickness, being we no longer have doctors, and anyone else you got close to had a high chance of using you, hurting you, or dying on you. So keep that in mind. In this world, there is no goals, no hopes, no dreams, just survival and fighting. You choose to be a Rebel, normy, solder, or you can choose to be a no name. Either way you're stuck with a high chance of dying either from being murdered or sickness, so good luck, but keep in mind some people's biggest skills is lying, thieving, and manipulating others. choose wisely my people. ******************************************************************* Rebels (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rebels (open) Rebels (close) Rebel people are normally have the "street fighter" look, using bandanna's to mark which group they belong to and always have any weapon they can fit on them. They believe that they can change the world into a better place then what is was, and is now. Their biggest enemy is the solders, the people who still work for and stand for the government both U.S and Chinese. The three types are always in a constant battle with each other trying to gain a foothold over the other. Of course the last part is the rebel bases, they are scattered everywhere on the U.S, all have different leaders and rules so be careful to learn the rules or else you can be kicked out of the base.

They don't really fit in to the rebellion because of whatever reasoning, and they sure as hell don't fight for any government. They are more of your lone wolves, and can look like your average normy or a rebellion fighter without the bandanna. No names have their own way of surviving, some are friend with rebel base, others steal, others are friend with squads.
