Looking to secure further resources in support of their domestic industries, Korean High Command determines the Americas to be the best option - the obsolescent US military is much weaker and the country's internal problems are far greater than either China's or India's, and the country is far more sparsely populated and resource-rich to boot. In 2025 the GKR detonates a high-yield nuclear weapon deployed from orbit over North America, the EMP killing electronics across 75% of the continent (bordering areas of Mexico and Canada are affected, but generally ignored). This is followed up by an invasion and occupation of the Pacific Coast of the USA and the securing of strategic sites further inland for resource extraction. The politicians in Washington finally stop bickering as they realize that the situation is truly beyond their control. With the partial invasion well underway and the remnants of the central government and military in total disarray, the USA has effectively been dissolved overnight. Everyone west of the now-irradiated -- another Communist-Korean dick move-- Mississippi river finds themselves living under Korean Quislings, in crazed survivalist enclaves or in total anarchy - [[CrapsackWorld and it's not quite clear which of those options is worse]].

Homefront is a game set in an occupied USA in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2027]]. The entire free-market world has more-or-less gone to hell. The USA and China have collapsed in on themselves [[EddieIzzard like disused flans in cupboards]] in the years after 2012. In the USA, the economic collapse served to promote great social unrest verging on but never quite spilling over into civil war[[note]] think the 1920s, but bigger and worse[[/note]]. A rejuvenated Democratic People's Republic of Korea under the leadership of Kim Jong-un (son of Kim Jong-Il) quickly seized the day. Within the space of two decades of annexation and gunboat diplomacy, all of Asia except subcontinental India and China answers to the Government of the Greater Korean Republic.[[note]]Though UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion seems to be doing fine.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Also, newspaper clippings in the game that you can find scattered throughout the levels reveal that a number of the annexations were actually voluntary or at least done without an invasion.
