    All-In-One Nutrition (AION)

    All-In-One Nutrition (AION) is an affordable, sustainable, self-contained individual nutrition ration developed by the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC) for the residents of Bastions. AION is served in liquid form and encased in a standard-issue 500ml bottle. It can be found in AION vending machines in all Bastions within the NCC. Production AION provides Bastion residents with all their caloric, hydration, protein, vitamin, and mineral needs, thus rending any other forms of food obsolete. AION is produced via a complicated recipe which takes nutritional values from grains, fruits, vegetables, and livestock provided by all Zones and Bastions of the NCC. These food sources are then processed at the Pilsen and Brno Factories in Zone 1 - Panacea, and their most nutrient portions are extracted and concentrated into powder form. The AION powder from these two factories is then shipped all across the NCC by freight, along with the appropriate serving bottles. The Office of Internal Management (OIM) of each Bastion is then entrusted to mix the powder with water and provide the final product to Bastion residents. Department of Health and Agriculture Production of AION is overseen by the Department of Health and Agriculture of the NCC. There description of AION is as follows: "AION is an affordable, sustainable, all-in-one solution to the food crisis that we face every day. In order to repopulate a world wracked with disaster, it is imperative that our citizens have access to nutrition that is easy to consume and easy to manufacture, so no one in any Bastion goes hungry. Each serving contains 25% daily value of protein and fats, slow-burning carbohydrates, and 28 essential vitamins and minerals that are then mixed with purified water and bottled to ensure that every citizen remains happy and, most importantly, healthy."

    Night of the Bloody Trident

    The Night of the Bloody Trident, also known as the Massacre of Chisinau, was a successful military coup lead by Bergamo Balkar, Commissioner of the Zaporizhia Bastion, against the Governor of Carpathia: Rakhila Panescu. The coup was carried out during the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the formation of Carpathia and its acceptance into the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC). Following the rapid coup, Bergamo Balkar proclaimed himself Governor of Zone 3 and appointed Fyodor Kazakov of the Luhansk Bastion and Jakob Dragan of the Cluj Napoca Bastion as Deputy Governors of Carpathia. Background Following the Third World War and the end of the Great Winter, the Prague and Vienna Bastions reformed the NCC in the summer of 2029 and began uniting the surviving Bastions of former NCC countries. Carpathia was created on September 18th 2029 following negotiations with the surviving Bastions of the region, and the Chisinau Bastion was selected as the Administrative Capital due to its central location and the fact it was the only surviving Bastion of the four countries' capitals. The leader of the Chisinau Bastion, Rakhila Panescu, was given the title of Governor of Zone 3. Selection of a Moldovan Bastion as head of Carpathia, the weakest country militarily prior to the war, was a topic of great contention within the Zone and Governor Panescu was often forced to displays of force to maintain Chisinau's authority and avoid conflict between the Zone's Bastions. The Zone was also victim of raids by Russian militias in the east and incursions by the Black Sea Raiders in the south and along Carpathian rivers. Following the initial years of instability, Comissioner Panescu was able stabilize the Zone and significantly raise industrial and agricultural production. Events On September 18th, 2039, Governor Rakhila Panescu invited leading Bastion figures across Zone 3 to a feast in Chisinau to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the formation of Carpathia and its acceptance into the NCC. In the middle of the festivites, Bergamo Balkar, Commissioner of the Zaporizhia Bastion, presented everyone at the feast with a silver medallion as a gift and invited all those present to wear them for the remainder of the feast. In addition, he offered Governor Panescu a Golden Trident as a symbol of her power. Bergamo explained that the Trident is the symbol of the Ukranian armed forces and the symbol of one if its greatest leaders: Vladimir the Great. As the feast went on, the power to the Chisinau Presidential Palace was abruptly cut-off. On instruction of Commissioner Balkar, a group of armed men from the Zaporizhip, Cluj Napoca, and Luhansk Bastions entered the grand hall and massacred the Zone's central leadership and a number of leaders from other Zone 3 Bastions. Reports indicate that as Governor Rakhila Panescu laid dying on the floor following shots to the shoulder and abdomen, Bergamo Balkar seized the Golden Trident and impaled Governor Panescu through the heart with it. After the initial attack, power was returned to the palace and Balkar declared himself the new Governor of Zone 3. He demanded the fealty of those he had spared in the attack, and appointed Fyodor Kazakov of the Luhansk Bastion and Jakob Dragan of the Cluj Napoca Bastion as Deputy Governors. All attending Justiciars were spared by Balkar and he informed them of his intention to remain loyal to the NCC. Aftermath Subsequent investigation into the coup revealed that the medallions Balkar had gifted to those he had planned to assassinate had been coated in a special military-grade infrared paint which allowed them to glow when viewed through infrared goggles. This allowed the attacking forces to pick out their targets while these were unable to react in the pitch-black room. Following the successful overthrow of the Chisinau Bastion, the Bastion was evacuated and its citizens distributed amongst other Carpathian Bastions, after which the outer walls were destroyed and allowed the Bastion to be overrun with Virulents. NCC High Command was forced to recognize Balkar's authority over the zone in order to avoid further instability caused by his actions. Written by Roland Brotz; edited by José Saumier

    Bergamo Balkar

    Bergamo Balkar (born August 1st, 2006) is the current Governor for Zone 3 - Carpathia, Commissioner of the Zaporizhia Bastion, and a former commander of the Zhartivnyk Brigade. Balkar took control of Carpathia following the Night of the Bloody Trident, when forces under his control attacked the Chisinau Bastion on September 18th, 2039, and killed most of the Zone's leadership: including former Zone 3 Governor Rakhila Panescu. EARLY LIFE Balkar was born on August 1st, 2006, in the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia. Little is known about his early life and origins, although it can be confirmed that Bergamo spent most of his childhood at the Molochansk Orphanage. War in the Donbass Following the Euromaidan movement and the subsequent pro-Russian separatist conflict in the southeastern Donbass region of Ukraine, Balkar escaped his orphanage at the age of 8 to volunteer in the conflict. Following his rejection from the Ukrainian Armed Forces due to his young age, Balkar was taken in by Ulman Vojtěch of the Zhartivnyk Brigade, one of the many Ukrainian nationalist militias which fought the Donbass forces during the war. Balkar remained with the Brigade throughout the 10-year conflict, where he demonstrated superior tactical and military skills, ultimately becoming a senior figure within the Brigade despite his young age. Peace in Donbass and World War III Following the abdication of President Nikolich in 2025, opposition leader Ana Tereshchenko assumed office where she quickly negotiated a peace with the Republic of Donbass and accepted to join the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC). The end of the war was followed by decrees calling for the forced disbandment of all non-state militias, including the Zhartivnyk Brigade. Its members, along with Balkar, returned to Zaporizhia and little is known about their activities between 2025 and 2027. Following the outbreak of WWIII between the NCC and the PRC, Balkar and his former companions took refuge in the Zaporizhia Bastion and remained there throughout the Great Winter. During the lockdown, Balkar and the Zhartivnyk Brigade incited a riot and seized control of the Bastion. POST-WAR YEARS Tenure as Commissioner With several senior figures of the Brigade dying during WWIII and the successful coup in Zaporizhia, Balkar assumed control of the Brigade and appointed himself Commissioner of the Zaporizhia Bastion. In the summer of 2029, the Prague and Vienna Bastions formed an alliance and reestablished the NCC with Prague as the capital. Following the entry of the German Bastions and the creation of Zone 2, the NCC turned to the east and contacted the Bastions of Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Donbass to a meeting in the Ukrainian border town of Uzhhorod. Balkar refused the summons and instead moved south and conquered the Bastions of Yevpatoriya and Feodosia in Crimea, ousting the Russian Commissioners there and replacing with them Zhartivnyk lieutenants. In Uzhhorod on September 18th 2029, the NCC and the attending Bastion leaders signed the Carpathian Special Assistance Against Virulents and Emerging Disasters (SAAVED) Agreement, which saw the creation of Carpathia as the Third Administrative Zone with the Chisinau Bastion as its Capital. Chisinau's Commissioner Rakhila Panescu was thus appointed as the Governor of Zone 3. The combined Carpathian and NCC forces then travelled around the Zone to demand the fealty of all Bastions which had not already attended the summit in Uzhhorod. The large army arrived at Zaporizhia on October 2nd, 2029 and Balkar agreed to join the NCC without conflict on the condition that Crimea would remain a part of Carpathia and its current Commissioners were allowed to retain their positions. The NCC and Carpathia agreed to these terms. Over the following decade, Balkar oversaw the Zaporizhia Bastion as Commissioner and conducted several infrastructure works to revive the agriculture of the region and restore power to the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station. Governor of Zone 3 Following the events of the Night of the Bloody Trident, the High Command in Prague recognized Bergamo Balkar as Zone 3 Governor and the Zaporizhia Bastion as the new Administrative Capital.

    Governors

    Governors serve as the heads of government of Administrative Zones (AZ) of the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC). The first Zone Governor of any AZ is agreed upon with the signing of the NCC Special Assistance Against Virulents & Emerging Disasters agreement (SAAVED) Agreements. Governors are also the Commissioners of the Administrative Capitals of each zone, and under the SAAVED agreements their role is to: Supervise, manage, and protect all Bastions within their Zone; Secure any people or peoples that are currently not in the Bastion Network; Implement Panacean Policies and Principles into Bastion management; Provide military, human, and material resources to the NCC on a need-basis; House one NCC-appointed Justiciar in each Bastion within their zone; this includes the Administrative Capital. There are currently 22 AZs within the NCC, with each Zone using their own title and succession mechanisms: Zone 2 - N/A Zone 3 - Brigadier General Bergamo Balkar Zone 4 - N/A Zone 5 - N/A Zone 6 - President Charlie Brown Zone 7 - Prime Minister Carlo Scanalatura Zone 8 - Captain Christopher Houliaras Zone 9 - N/A Zone 10 - N/A Zone 11 - Prime Minister Jose Luis Alonso Zone 12 - N/A Zone 13 - N/A Zone 14 - N/A Zone 15 - N/A Zone 16 - N/A Zone 17 - N/A Zone 18 - N/A Zone 19 - N/A Zone 20 - N/A Zone 21 - N/A Zone 22 - N/A Written by Roland Brotz

    Office of Internal Management

    The Office of Internal Management (OIM) is one of the two managerial pillars of a Bastion - the other being the Internal Security Forces (ISF). The OIM was established in 2025 as part of the Bastion Contingency, to create a dedicated administrative staff to manage the construction and subsequently the management of the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC) approved Bastions. The order was reestablished with the reformation of the NCC in 2029. Structure Each NCC Bastion has two managerial bodies within them: OIM and ISF. While the ISF is in charge of security both within and outside the Bastion, the OIM is in charge of the administration portion of Bastion upkeep. This includes: management of supplies, finances, citizen licenses, and NCC-approved work shifts. The OIM of each Bastion is under the supervision of the Chief Controller, while both the OIM and the ISF report directly to the Bastion Commissioner. In the Prague Capital Bastion, the Department of Bastion Management oversees the proper conduct and efficiency of the OIMs in each Bastion. This is done through revision of submitted reports, periodic audits, and direct observation of the Bastion-appointed Justiciar. Written by Roland Brotz

    Second European Migrant Crisis

    The Second European Migrant Crisis refers to a period between 2025 and 2026 which was characterized by elevated levels of migration from the Middle East, North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa regions into the European Union. The increased level of migration was caused by multiple ongoing conflicts in the originating regions, economic issues arising from the suspension of foreign aid as a result of the Second Cold War, and accelerated climate change as a result of the increased militarization and industrialization of the three global superpowers: Russia, the United States, and China. Around 2.5 million migrants and asylum-seekers arrived in the EU as a result, compared to 1 million during the 2015 European Migrant Crisis. While EU governments largely worked together to absorb the arriving migrants, their arrival was met with significant opposition by large parts of European citizens in a similar fashion to the First Migrant Crisis. A number of countries experienced political shifts as a result of the increased levels of migration, with several far-right parties coming to prominence across Europe. The term Second European Migrant Crisis was criticized by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Organization for Migration, and Amnesty International among other organizations, as they argued that the global refugee crisis was affecting many other parts of the globe outside of Europe as well. By 2027, only Germany was among the top 10 refugee hosting countries globally, with Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Kenya each hosting more refugees than the whole of the EU put together.

    NCC SAAVED Agreements

    The NCC Special Assistance Against Virulents & Emerging Disasters agreement (SAAVED) is the principle legal charter between designated Administrative Capitals and the NCC. The SAAVED agreements were designed in 2029 following the lifting of the Post-Catastrophic Containment Measure (PCCM) as part of the Prague and Vienna Bastion's initiative to reform the NCC into Administrative Zones. They outline the aid package and responsibilities of the NCC towards Administrative Capitals, as well as the principles these Bastions have to adhere in order to be part of the NCC. There are currently 22 Administrative Zones within the NCC, with each Administrative Capital having signed a SAAVED agreement as part of their inclusion into the NCC. As part of the SAAVED Agreements, both the NCC and Administrative Capitals commit to a set of actions. The NCC commits to: Provide sufficient financial, military, and material aid to each Administrative Capital in order to ensure these can effectively secure their Zone; Provide sufficient autonomy to the Administrative Capitals so that they can efficiently secure and oversee their Zone; Ensure that human capital is effectively circulated and distributed to each Capital and Bastion to ensure production continuity; Ensure that ISF personnel is effectively circulated and distributed to each Capital and Bastion to ensure production continuity. The Administrative Capitals commit to: Supervise, manage, and protect all Bastions within their Zone; Secure any people or peoples that are currently not in the Bastion Network; Implement Panacean Policies and Principles into Bastion management; Provide military, human, and material resources to the NCC on a need-basis; House one NCC-appointed Justiciar in each Bastion within their zone; this includes the Administrative Capital.

    Justiciars

    Justiciars are NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC) Representatives assigned to all Bastions within the NCC to ensure that Panacean Principles are being adhered to and commitments as part of the SAAVED agreements are being met. The presence of Justiciars in NCC Bastions is one of the commitments of the Special Assistance Against Virulents & Emerging Disasters agreement (SAAVED): the principal legal charter between designated Administrative Capitals and the NCC. As part of the charter, each Bastion houses one Justiciar and ensures their safety and well-being. Justiciars report directly to the Prague Bastion Authority, but have no direct power in their assigned Bastion. Their role is strictly observational, although they serve as advisers to Zone and Bastion leadership. Justiciars are NCC Civil Servants and members of the Panacean Movement. Written by Roland Brotz

    Zone 3 - Carpathia

    Carpathia is the Third Administrative Zone of NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC). Located in southeastern Europe, it was established following the reformation of the NCC in the summer of 2029. Pre-2027 countries included in the zone are the Republic of Moldova, the Republic of Donbass, Romania, and Ukraine. The current Administrative Capital (AC) is the Zaporizhia Bastion, who took administrative control of the Zone in 2039. The Zone was originally entrusted to the Chisinau Bastion until the events of the Night of the Bloody Trident. HISTORY Pre-War Years Since its independence following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine was a country marked by low economic growth, limited infrastructural development, and extensive public corruption. The country also suffered from tensions between its Russian, Polish, Turk, and Romanian minorities, the dominant Ukrainian population, and its neighboring countries. These tensions lead to conflicts such as the Transnistrian War in 1992 and the War in Donbass in 2014. In 2014, longtime Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovych was forced to resign following a wave of pro-EU protests, which called for closer integration with the European Union and for government reform. During the ensuing disorder, the Russian Federation annexed the Crimean Peninsula and instigated a rebellion in the oblasts of Donestk and Luhansk. While supporting the new Ukrainian government via financial and military aid, NATO failed to become directly involved in the conflict as it feared triggering a large scale war with the Russian Federation, who in turn also avoided the perception that it was directly involved in the conflict. The relatively low intensity conflicts persisted throughout the second half of the 2010s and the early 2020s as numerous UN-brokered ceasefires were continuously negotiated and subsequently broken by both sides. The rising threat of the People's Republic of China (PRC) lead to the United States of America (USA) and the Russian Federation to put aside their differences and create the NATO-CSTO Coalition in December 2024. As part of the NCC agreement, NATO suspended its aid to the Ukrainian government and officially recognized the independent Republic of Donbass. As part of neither NATO or CSTO, Ukraine refused to recognize the Republic of Donbass and continued its conflict with the young Republic in early 2025. In March 2025, it was discovered that the government of President Nikolich had accepted military and financial aid from the PRC for the War in Donbass. Under immense international pressure, Nikolich was forced to abdicate by members of the opposition and the National Guard. Following his abdication, a state of emergency was declared in the country and opposition leader Ana Tereshchenko assumed office, where she quickly negotiated a peace with the Republic of Donbass and accepted to join the NCC. World War III and the Great Winter As members of the NCC, Donbass, Moldova, Romania, and Ukraine were forced to join the war with the PRC. However, due to their military and infrastructural inferiority, Romania and Moldova were ignored in the initial PRC waves with only one missile striking the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Meanwhile the cities of Kiev, Odessa, Lviv, and Kharkiv in Ukraine, Donetsk in Donbass, and Sevastopol in Crimea were all struck by Chinese missiles. Post-2027 Years With the lifting of the Post-Catastrophic Containment Measure in the summer of 2029, the Prague and Vienna Bastions reformed the NCC and began to unify the surviving Bastions across Europe and North America. Following the entry of the German Bastions and the creation of Zone 2, the NCC turned to the east and contacted the Bastions of Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Donbass to a meeting in the Ukrainian border town of Uzhhorod. In Uzhhorod on September 18th 2029, the NCC and the attending Bastion leaders signed the Carpathian Special Assistance Against Virulents and Emerging Disasters (SAAVED) Agreement, which saw the creation of Carpathia as the Third Administrative Zone with the Chisinau Bastion as its Capital. Chisinau'sCommissioner Rakhila Panescu was thus appointed as the Governor of Zone 3. The combined Carpathian and NCC forces then traveled around the Zone to demand the fealty of all Bastions which had not already attended the summit. Zone 3 proved to be of strategic importance to the NCC in the years following its reformation. The fallout from the Kaliningrad Event mostly flowed East into Russia, while the mountain ranges of the Alps, Carpathians, Balkans, and Sudetes largely reduced the fallout from Western Europe. Combined with favourable climate conditions, this left Zone 3's agricultural outputs relatively intact compared to the rest of Europe, and thus serves as an important food source for the rest of the Coalition. In September 2039, Governor Rakhila Panescu invited leading Bastion figures across Zone 3 to a feast in Chisinau to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the formation of Carpathia and its acceptance into the NCC. On instruction of Zaporizhia Commissioner Bergamo Balkar, a group of armed men from the Zaporizhia, Cluj Napoca, and Luhansk Bastions entered the grand hall of the Chisinau Presidential Palace and massacred the Zone's central leadership and a number of leaders from other Zone 3 Bastions. Balkar demanded the fealty of the surviving leaders and appointed Fyodor Kazakov of the Luhansk Bastion and Jakob Dragan of the Cluj Napoca Bastion as Deputy Governor of Carpathia. This event came to be referred to as the Night of the Bloody Trident. All attending Justiciars were spared by Balkar, and he informed them of his intention to remain loyal to the NCC. The Triumverate then evacuated the Chisinau inhabitants to other Zone 3 Bastions, after which they destroyed the outer walls and allowed the city to be overrun with Virulents. Following the events of Chisinau, the High Command in Prague recognized Bergamo Balkar as Zone 3 Governor and the Zaporizhia Bastion as the Administrative Capital.

    United States of America

    The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States, US, or America, was a country in North America and member of the NATO-CSTO Coalition (NCC) prior to the outbreak of World War III. The country was the second largest economy of the world and competed with the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the status of the world's foremost superpower. The country suffered devastating damage as a result of nuclear attacks from the PRC, which destroyed most of its military, political, and administrative leadership, including the capital of Washington D.C. Following the end of the war, numerous Bastions claimed to be the rightful successors of the administration of President Conrad Nelson, resulting in conflict and disunity amongst the American Bastions. Most surviving Bastions resisted the Prague-led NCC’s attempts at annexation, resulting in conflict throughout the continent. The Annexation Wars ended with the inclusion of the Eastern States into the NCC, and the official recognition of several new countries in the central and western parts of the continent. HISTORY Pre-War Years: 2020-2027 The second half of the 2010s saw American politics become highly polarized as the division between different ethnic and ideological groups grew wider, a divisive energy which was carried into the 2020 election. Despite widespread discontent, Donald Trump was able to secure his re-election against a divided Democratic Party in November 2020. The death of President Xi Jinping and the election of Zhao Desheng increased tensions between the US and the PRC during the early 2020s, as Chinese expansionism alarmed NATO countries. Fear of the PRC's rise lead to the unification of NATO and CSTO countries into the NCC in December 2024, followed shortly thereafter by the issuance of the Bastion Contingency in response to a possible nuclear war with China. Following the highly divisive election in 2020, Conrad Nelson founded the American Constitutional Party, which sought to appeal to centrist voters that no longer felt represented by either the Republican or Democratic parties. The party surged in popularity during the Trump presidency and eventually won the 2024 election. While President Trump brought the USA into the NCC, Conrad Nelson and the ACP campaigned on a strictly isolationist agenda and condemned the union, as well as the financial commitment of the Bastion Contingency. After being sworn into office in January 2025, President Nelson refused allocating federal funds to the construction of the Bastions. Bastions were therefore only constructed in states that were willing to pay for it themselves, while a number of private organizations and billionaires decided to build their own. World War III As the most prominent member of the NCC, the USA was severely hit by the PRC's nuclear arsenal, with most of the major cities, industrial centers, and military complexes on the eastern coast being completely destroyed. America's west coast was particularly targeted; bombs targeted most major cities between Seattle and San Francisco, and repeated bombardments combined with coastal winds pushed radiation further inland. The region of Texas and parts of the central United States were left largely intact during the war. Post-2027 Years Most of the administrative, military, and political leadership of the United States of America perished during WW3: including President Conrad Nelson. In the months following the end of the bombing campaign, the United States was left leaderless and numerous Bastions began to claim governance over what was left of the country. This section is a stub. You can help by adding to it. Meanwhile in Europe, the areas of Czechia, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary were spared of the worst of the Chinese bombing. The Prague and Vienna Bastions formed an alliance in the summer of 2029 and reestablished the NCC with Prague as the capital. In the following months, they began to recruit Bastions across Europe and divided the continent into Administrative Zones. The NCC began contacting Bastions in North America in the spring of 2030, but were met with resistance from the majority of American Bastions. After consolidating their power in Europe, the NCC invaded North America in the spring of 2032, whose Bastions had failed to unite and reform the United States. The different American coalitions decided to abandon their differences and formed the American Commonwealth Resistance (ACR) in order to coordinate the defense against the invading NCC. However, the ACR was ineffective in coordinating its defense as its coalition members often failed to put aside personal ambitions in favor of the wider conflict. Over the course of 2032, American Bastions began to defect to the NCC as prospect of victory dwindled. By March 2033, all eastern coalitions had disbanded and its Bastions joined the NCC; 6 Zones were established as a result. The conflict between the NCC and several other western and central factions continued until the the Russian Rebellion of 2033. Unwilling to continue a two-front conflict, the NCC relinquished claim over the central and western United States and signed the Treaty of Baton Rouge on March 2033. The treaty outlined the NCC's dominion over the areas east of the Mississippi river, while recognizing a number of newly-formed countries in the west. Written by Roland Brotz; edited by José Saumier
