I came here from 2046. It's comforting to use one of these computers again. I remember them from when I was a child. Computers 31 years from now are terribly drab. Sorry, I'm getting off topic. My name is Cathrine. Cathrine Faye Johnson, to be exact. I was born in the year 2000, and I am part of the first group in my future to "perfect" time travel. I put that in quotes as we had not worked out how to move forwards in time at the time of me volunteering to use the machine. Since I am stuck here, I may as well tell you the events that occurred up to my departure. I am not sure whether me posting this, or even typing this, will change anything in the future, but I must tell of my timeline. 2016 UN places more sanctions on Russia 2017 The Islamic State has been nearly defeated, what members remain live in hiding NATO-Russia tensions raise dramatically as Russia annexes eastern Belarus Racial tensions in Southern USA reach breaking point; many battles between the races can be seen 2018 Chinese Communist Party's power is fading rapidly Palestine Recognized as a sovereign state by US, UK, France, China, and Russia; It soon after joins the UN 2019 Nothing Noteworthy occurs in 2019 2020 Eurozone on the brink of collapse Kim Jong Un suffers from an undisclosed disease ISS retired; sunk into Atlantic Ocean 2021 Chinese Communist Party loses power; Peoples Republic of China falls; Republic of China gains control and begins environmental repair program US declares martial law in the southern states; Citizens outraged 2022 Islam outlawed in US Mexican government on brink of collapse 2023 Kim Jong Un dies; His young (5 years old) son, Kim Chun Min, gains power US declares martial law nationwide 2024 Second American Civil War begins; 5 factions vie for control of America Eurozone collapses, world economy experiences the worst depression in history Hawaii becomes independent nation Alaska becomes Canadian province 2025 Europe in chaos; Germany, France, Sweden, the UK, Italy, Austria, and Poland blame Greece and declare war Russia invades the Baltics, Kazakhstan, and Georgia Russia declares war on Canada; both sides fear using nuclear weapons and only partake in conventional warfare 2026-2028 Several American factions invade southern Canada Civil war erupts in Canada, Russia, India, and Australia 2029 Greece falls and is divided up among the European powers North Ireland captured by Ireland 2030 Great Barrier Reef in "critical condition" Australian civil war ends; socialist government takes power 2031-2033 Canada and Russia sign peace treaty; Russia gains western Alaska Canadian and Russian civil wars end Indian Civil war ends; South India becomes independant 2034 American Civil war ends; American Union is formed and consists of 5 Nations: the Pacific Republic, the Republic of New England, True America, Free America, and the Midwest Federation Canada annexes a small portion of Greenland Sahara Desert declared uninhabitable; Much of Africa forms a loose union 2035 Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, and Greenland unite to form the Nordic Federation The Koreas are unified; North Korea rapidly modernizes The New Islamic State (NIS) is forms and gains power almost unopposed as the former world powers cannot spare manpower to stop them 2036 The world market has mostly recovered from the depression Mexico crumbles into 3 nations: the Californian Empire, the Republic of Mexico, and South Mexico Latin America unites under the Latin American Federation Southeast Asian Federation Formed 2037 South Mexico joins the Latin American Federation Atlantic Union is formed, it's founding states are Ireland, the UK, the RNE, the NF, France, Morocco, Portugal, the LAF, Germany, and Canada 2038 The Great Lakes are drained by FA, the MWF, and the RNE The World Space Exploration Association is founded 2039 WSEA begins organizing a lunar installation Timestream quantum science laboratory is organized 2040 Nothing Noteworthy occurred in 2040 2041-2045 Islam becomes largest religion in the world.
