The Terran Empire

History
Of
The Terran Empire
The Cold war ended in early morning mists of May 27:e 1989 the Soviet Empire was on the brink of collapse and in a desperate gamble to keep the Soviet Union together a war was launched.
The first 72 hours of the war was a total strategic surprise for the Soviet forces, huge parts of West Germany fell to the mechanized Soviets and they used chemical warfare to advance fast into the German heartland, overrunning almost every German army unit mobilized.
But in the pacific theatre it didn’t go to well, both Japan and South Korea were in a joint military excises, and when North Korea attacked south the army was soon able to contain the northern advance. In the battle for Seoul on the night between 1st and 2nd June North Korean army was totally broken but when the nuclear exchange occurred the war died out and soon Korea was united again.  
May 28th in a daring “Second Pearl Harbour” attack the Japanese air force sunk almost every Soviet warship of its Pacific Command in the harbour of Vladivostock as well almost destroyed its air force on the ground, all due to a planted “virus” in that theatres main computers.
The NATO alliance was crumbling under conventional air raids as well as Spetsnas raids, some were at military targets as command centres, airfields, POMCUS sites, fuel depots and munitions but many were at the political establishment, panic was spreading like wildfire.
June 1st, early morning, 1st  Armoured division arrives at Ghent, Belgium, the first reinforcement to arrive in Europe in  and in the early hours of evening several tactical nuclear strikes by the US tries to stop the Soviet advance into Netherlands and Belgium, huge losses of life but the Soviet steamroller isn’t stopped.
On June 2nd, at 1 AM, USA launched a full out nuclear attack at Soviet Union, the Soviet Union detected the launch almost emidiatly and launched a counter strike.
In the next hour several thousands of mushroom shaped fireballs erupted over the globe…
The Soviet Union ceased to exist. Most of Europa was a burning and radiated waste land, in north America it was better but in the weeks to follow the war all civil services failed and America descended into  state were the strong preyed on the weak, China was hit by both sides.
No one wanted to have a strong China after a devastating war.
Almost as soon as  the big went to war Pakistan and India launched their surprise attacks, in the end both destroyed each other with their nuclear arms, the survivors struggled to survive in the years to come, but in Fall of 1995 they were evacuated to south of France.
The same day as the war begun Sweden and Finland made public of a defence pact, both countries made great efforts to place its army on wartime alert, in June 5th The Armies of Sweden and Finland were ready. No Soviet troops attacked Finland but after the nuclear exchange, Finnish troops advanced into Soviet Karelia and in the north also incursions were made, some fire fights were fought before the Russians put down their weapons, aid was pouring into Saint Petersburg as well as Murmansk, both cities were in flames when the first Finns got to them, most of its populations were dead or injured. After several weeks of aid both cities were abounded, a large no man’s land were created.
Luckily Great Britain wasn´t hit by a single nuclear bomb, it was hit hard  by radiation from the fallout but in the few weeks after the war Britain, France, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and Finland come together into a pact, all would help the other in case of war or famine.
The same luck spared France and Spain from getting hit. Both these countries lost a portion of their population but were almost untouched by the nuclear fallout.
In the North only Norway, Sweden and Finland survived almost intact, there were a some fighting in the northern parts of Norway but when the missiles flew most of it died down fast.
Both Greece and Turkey was badly hit by Russian nuclear bombs, Istanbul was hit by nuclear bomb that first failed to detonate in the air, but later blew a big crater in the Bosporus straits, at first ceiling the entrance to the Black Sea, most of the city were severely damaged but thru a miracle the old Hagia Sofia, survived almost intact, the four Islamic towers fell during the bombs shock waves. In Greece most of the main land areas were raced to the ground by several airburst, in Turkey most of its population centres were hit by at least one nuclear bomb. In Italy several bombs hit the North and destroyed almost everything north of the river Rubicon, Rome was also hit by a nuclear bomb that did not work it hit the church of Sankt Peter.  The southern Italy survived the war more or less intact but much human life was lost, less than 15 million survived.
Almost all of central and Eastern Europe was engulfed in nuclear fire, small bands of survivors tried to live in the waste land. But soon a plague was spreading from the east, moving west, when the coalition heard about it they tried to stop its spread, but the only way to stop it was to kill every living thing in the affected areas. This was kind to those that were hit by the plague mortality was around 98% but with extreme pain and disfiguration.
In May 1991 the surviving European nations came together and formed a Union of survivors, mostly a military union, but still aid flowed between north and south.
In 6:th June 1993 the first case of the Plague  hit the city Strasbourg, but now there were an antidote being produced, it wasn’t 100% , but 30% became sick and less than 8% of those died.
One regiment from the Swedish Royal Army was particularly bad hit, almost all come down with the sickness but almost everyone survived, less than 1% died, the scaring was particularly bad for the women’s.
Great Britain’s population were transferred to the France and the Nordic Countries, less than 25 million remained in 1992, Ireland also was abounded.
In October 1993 there were food riots in city of Nancy the regiment turned up and quelled it without a shoot being fired, the population looked at the disfigured troops and went back to their homes, the troops also gave away some of its food supplies to the starving population.
On the 23 of December that year the regiment was given a new name, The Pagans, the also adopted the music Swedish Pagans from Swedish rock group, Sabaton,  all its future members had to bee of Swedish nationality or decent.
They were called upon 2 more times to quell unrest, every time they went into the rioting places the rioters went home with a small amount of food and without violence.
Most of the world managed to stay out of the war but was instead hit by the effects of the nuclear wars horrors, like radiation fallout and a lower temperature, global temp fell with almost 8 degrees Celsius
In Africa, conditions soon became bad, then worse, in 2 years most of its inhabitants were dead from starvation or cold. Less than 20 million survived, the same time the natural life was also badly hit, most of its famous wild life died out, I would take decades before man returned to central Africa, only South Africa  retained a semblance of civilization but at a high price, out of some 40 million in 1990, less than 17 million survived the war and famine.
In North America it was bad at first but when the civil service broke down, starvation and plagues killed more each day and in the years after less than 5 million surviving Americans and Canadians were found and evacuated.
In central America, famine was soon spreading, almost overnight several areas of Mexico were awash in violence, were drug cartels fought each other and the army/police for the scarce food supplies that were left.
In early 1991 central America was depopulated, the only population that seemed to thrive was the descendants of native Indians, mostly because they already lived of the land, the same happened in south America, especially in the jungle areas , in the south and high parts almost everyone starved to death or froze…
Less than 8 million survived in the years to come.
In the South east Asia there were famines and wide spread violence but by late 1993 there were a stable situation in that area, Australia expanded north to stop the refuges to topple the already strained situation in Australia and New Zeeland but with the help from Japan they managed to help most of the nations in the area to almost survive.
In the middle east a brief war was fought between Israel and its Islamic neighbours, in the same time the Islamic forces attacked into Israel, Israels military were stretched to the breaking point, but when USA and Soviet Union engaged each other with nuclear arms Israel struck out also, in minutes each of the following cities were struck by Israeli nuclear bombs, Damascus, Tehran, Cairo, Baghdad, Tripoli and Riyadh as well as the Iranian nuclear programme was destroyed by several small yield  nuclear bombs delivered by a new type of cruise missile. Most of the attacking forces yielded there arms when they lost contact with theirs military leaders.
Most of the world managed to stay out of the war but was instead hit by the effects of the nuclear wars horrors, like radiation fallout and a lower temperature, global temp fell with almost 8 degrees Celsius and with widespread violence even more was lost.
World population was under 500 million by now and slowly falling.
In January 13:th 1994 all of the surviving countries/regions were in a conference in Paris, talking,  what to do to save the human race?
In the end, there was only one choice, unite the world under on government.
After almost 3 weeks of debating an accord was finished and signed by the participants.
But the people wanted one person to lead them out of the abyss the politicians had created, they wanted a King, a young king that could lead his people to greatness, well at least save it from death.
After a long debate, were the English, Norwegian and Spanish royal houses were rejected it fell to the Swedish royal house of Bernadotte to supply an Heir, at this time there were only one male, except the King, he wouldn’t abdicate so Carl Philip was elected to the new throne. But in the end there were to be an Empire instead of a kingdom and on the 1 of June 1994 the Swedish Prince Carl Philip was crowned as the first Emperor of Earth, Carl Philip I.

In the summer of 1992 a Swedish recon flight over large parts of Poland, Ukraine, Russia and Estonia, shoved a country almost devoid of life, large parts were still black from the nuclear fires and Moscow was found to be totally destroyed.
In the first 10 years of his reign he was given total control of earths all forces and populations, these 10 years were hard on Earths populations but a steady climb upwards managed to save the human race from extinction. Both food and protection against the elements were 1st in the list after that, reclaiming industry and knowledge become also paramount. In 1999 humans returned to space, the first step was to build a true space station, Unity, it was finished on the last day of the millennium, it had a slipway to build small exploration ships, but the first one made were a freighter and a colony ship.  
July 1st 2001, 12 years after the war and Earth’s temperature is almost back to normal, the radiation is higher than before the war but almost gone from the atmosphere, still large parts of western and eastern Europe is dead, as well as large parts of north America.
In 2002 a small colony is founded on Mars, near the Great Rift Valley, in less than a year a 250000 people lives and works there. There is talks about building huge terraforming installations, but how to do it is not known yet.
14th of May 2003 a young and brilliant scientist named Akira Kawasaki published teases about a 2nd Newtonian Law. He proclaimed that there were hidden exotic minerals in the earth, these would give the human race a better chance of surviving, at first there were a stunned silence from the scientific world, but soon more and more people were testing the teases and found it sound and on the 19th  October that year a working scanner shoved 11 exotic minerals inside earth’s crust. With these minerals Earths industry base can be converted to an advanced set of factories and mines to be able to use it more effective.
Some space ship planners are in an  ecstasy, these metals could be used to build better ad faster ships, even star ships could be built.
