The State of the (former) Nation

To be published in 2013 - LONDON (E.U. zone), Former UNITED KINGDOM - The Coalition government ordered a State of Emergency as the cuts produced in early 2011 have ulitmately taken its toll on a public who have taken enough.

After increasing tuition fees, cutting benefits, then scrapping government loans for university, unemployment was at an all time high in mid-2011. Also, the government was sluggish at responding to the terrorist attack on central Birmingham, killing 20,000 and injuring 45,000.

Protests in 2010 and '11 have turned more and more violent and amassing more and more people on average. Recently, nearly 70% of the population went on strike, causing many of the country's services to stop. It was made even worse by Moody's, the credit agency, in late 2011, declaring Britain 'as bad as Goldman Sachs in 2008' in terms of debt. The London Olympics were cancelled, causing millions of jobs to be lost, as a consequence.

Political expert, Todd Nichols, said: "We can see that the Tory government played too hard, too fast. The cuts destabilised the economy. I know the Broad Street Attacks were not the Tories' doing, but it took half-an-hour for West Midlands Counter-Terrorism to respond and an hour for the central government to declare an emergency."

The people, all 64 million, with thousands trying to leave everyday, marched onto London, and overturned the government.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland was no more, as Scotland and Wales devolved, just before the government was turned over.

International aid poured in from many nations, including the US, China, Japan, the EU and Kenya, however this did not help, so UN and NATO peacekeeping forces were sent to discourage the violence.

They found the former nation in ruins, with no semblance of government or control, the country will become a shared colony of the US the EU and China, with the US taking the North and the West, the EU the South and the Midlands, leaving China with the East, and London split into US, EU and Chinese zones.
