Two days after the threat of nuclear war alarms rang at NORAD alerting them that 100 intercontinental ballistic missiles were coming panic and dread filled the command center the general calls president Nixon for the go ahead Nixon gives him the permission to fire back and soon the USA launched all of their missiles at the USSR but it turns out that it was actually a computer glitch in the system which mistaken one’s with zero’s but it was too far too late the Soviets were nuked and the Soviets then launched their own missiles and by the evening of March 5th people fled to their local bunkers has the sirens of war ringed throughout the country then by the morning hours of March 6th 40 American cities were nuked people who didn’t manage to get to a bunker were either turned into ash and bones or suffered severe third-degree burns or radiation poisoning and thousands of people were lost to the blazing fire clouds of the bombs but it’s the aftermath that brought not only America’s downfall but the near-extinction of mankind after March 6th Richard Nixon declared a state of emergency and begun to provide aid to the survivors shortly in the next few months after the day of hell acres of crops died and the world fell into a thermonuclear winter and entered Dark Winter. Gradually millions more people died of famine then on September 15th, 1963 food shortages and lack of medical aid sparked the creation of the People's Army which was a group of mixed ideologies from libertarians to communist protesting on the streets of the capital and was met with police batons, savage police dogs, tear gas, and water hoses the protest then turned to a brawl between protesters and the police and after the Washington riots 200 died and further worse on February 7th, 1964 a military coup overthrew Nixon and congress and installed a military regime that temporarily suspended the constitution and Nixon along with a few dozen cabinet members were executed the next day.

After the overthrow many Americans were ticked off about the coup and soon in the snowy summer of 1964 a revolutionary army called the ALF (American Liberation Front) formed to counter the regime on August 6th, 1964 17 cities were under ALF control and soon the Regime was forced to withdraw troops from Cuba to the USA, however, it wasn’t long until multiple military revolts flared up and by 1965 the remaining US government collapsed along with its rival the USSR.
