The sky is fire. The air is full of smoke - and everyone is gone.
Everyone has died ... except the Nations.
They come together for comfort and to stave off the loneliness that would surely drive them insane, for there is no need for hostilities among old friends and who is older than them? They do not know why they still live if there are no populations anymore until one by one they disappear into nothing. Finally Earth has died.
The Nations awoke in a strange place where they felt something missing, which was their ties to their individual landmasses. They saw Nations they had thought long gone, such as Germania, Roman Empire, Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt. They saw their long-cherished friend, China, who had vanished long before the end of Earth. They saw Byzantine Empire, Holy Empire and more.
And they knew they were Home.
