The World's End, written by Holly Hilton, tells the story of a nuclear war breaking out near the end of GWII. It starts with the news broadcast of the nukes coming in, and the first chapter ends with them ending contact with the general public. The rest of the story tells about the rebuilding of society, and the new countries that result from it. The main powerhouse is the Fanegan Federation, which was formed out of Fanego and Maori. Vinland and Mozambique are the only two countries from pre-war to survive, with the rest either being new countries or city-states in the waste.
