It started in Alabama. There was a statewide strike at all power companies and everyone lost power. People decided to use this to their advantage. If there was no power, they could rob stores and murder all they wanted. Within a few days, people from other states started going to Alabama to take part in the crime. Power companies across the country started going on strikes, leading to the same crime sprees and violence. The government was never able to sort out the issue and the United States of America met its end. With the United States being so involved with the rest of the world, every single country collapsed within the following month.
Our story starts 317 years after the fall of the United States with Evansville, a small military based village in the upper peninsula of Michigan.
