It was the dream of humanity; the technology to sustain a vast, healthy population. Every country on the
planet was clean, well fed and advanced, making war a thing of the past. It was in the year 2312 that that all
changed. The American government launched the most advanced space probe man had ever seen into the
middle of deep space. We only hoped to find new worlds to colonize, but we discovered something else: The
Zenith. A powerful, merciless race of creatures, hell-bent on eradicating human-kind. Our defense was
amiable, but in the end we were helpless to stop their advance. A single super-weapon reduced human
civilization to a smoldering pile of rubble. Earth's population dropped from nine-billion to just over
five-thousand. Those who survived lost all technology, and most of the worlds history. Just as suddenly as
they arrived, the Zenith vanished, leaving Earth set back to a pre-industrial squalor.
Among the wreckage of the Human-Zenith War was the once vastly powerful United States. Little more than a nameless crust ofindependentfactions of farmers, raiders, and wandering individuals. In spite of this, the country had an entity residing within, ready and capable of reuniting the country. The NUSA was on the verge of rising from the ashes.
