[[folder: World Divided]]
Unlike its other brethren, World Divided is a game that runs on Gmod pictures instead of the same text all the time. World Divided is an [[AlternateHistory Alternate History]] where [[WorldWarIII World War III]] has broken out. In retaliation to the nuclear warheads fired at the American coasts, Israel fires it's final set of nuclear warheads, warheads hit in shanghai china, and Moscow Russia. In retaliation five remaining Russian Nuclear Submarines's in the area decimate Israel with a fierce barrage of warheads. With many countries ravaged by fierce fighting and economies decimated the War grinds to a stalemate, shortly after the Nuclear Arms Treaty is signed by remaining superpowers (Russia, China, America). The year is now 2038 and new nations, gangs, and groups have risen from the ashes.
* CrapsackWorld: The world was plunged into Nuclear War(not to the severity of say Fallout) Plagues, mutants, bandits overrun the world. The majority of nations fell. You'll be lucky to find any safe place out there in Neutral Areas. The Orange and Red Areas on the other hand... are even worse.
* ScavengerWorld: It's also this, those who aren't pre-war nations or prepared countries usually resort to scavenging in order to survive.
