The Great War, sometimes referred to as the Communist War, was a series of global conflicts which involved multiple fronts on almost every continent and ocean on the globe. It also impacted the lives and cultures of almost every nation on Earth.


Communism began in theory in the state of Finland of Scandinavia in the 1840s. This was a cause, in part, for the collapse of Scandinavia into the Nordic Republics in 1876. By the mid 1880s, Communist parties and revolutions spread throughout Europe, threatening and overturning many of the established institutions. The revolutions that achieved were in the states of France, Poland, and Russia, and these three nations decided to band together as the "People's Entente". Meanwhile, conservative backlashes began inciting the persecution of communist parties throughout Europe, particularly in nations such as Spain, Germany, and Croatia. One such harsh series of early persecutions was led by the Kingdom of Czechia, leading to the assassination of the Czech Prime Minister and the partition of Czechia east and west. In addition to these passive actions, the People's Entente began launching concerted campaigns targeted at individual republics in Europe, such as the French Invasion of Brittany and the so-called "Great" War against Pskov. Fearful of Communist spread, the Roman Empire took the leading role at gathering a secret alliance of Republics and Constitutional Monarchies known as The Holy League.

Seeing the growth of international organizations in Europe, the imperial powers of Asia decided to pool their resources together to partition the continent among themselves. Known as the "Grand Tripartite" these three empires were the Caliphate, India, and Japan. In the process of aiding each other in dividing central Asia, the Tripartite ended up working with the states of Russia and Borealia to take down non-partisan empires in the region, namely the Tartary and the Shun Dynasty of China.

By the middle of the first decade of the twentieth century, the persecutions of communist parties had greatly intensified, leading to certain violent reactions such as the Bamburg incident in Germany. Finally, in 1908, a revolt in Syria began demanding independence from the Roman Empire, for which the Caliphate stepped in and insisted primacy over the region. When Rome refused to capitulate to the Caliphate, the Grand Tripartite then allied with the People's Entente to invade the Roman Empire. Seeing this aggression against their ally, the nations of Germany and Spain took the initiative to declare war on the Entente and invade France. Although Deschalms, chairman of France, had plans on a coordinated attack to establish communism in western Europe, he did not expect to see conflict this soon, nor did he officially sanction an alliance with the Grand Tripartite.
