Industrialized nations, for the first time, experienced hunger and poverty on a scale not seen outside the most stricken third-world countries. The Order of Nations, a new world power, stepped into the chaos and restored order, imposing a tyrannical rule. But they pushed too hard and people everywhere began to openly challenge them.
