World War III broke out so quickly, no one could stop it. It escalated to multinational bio-chemical bombing. Viruses went airborne, and began infecting the population immediately. The viruses that were unleashed during the bombing were almost the same across every nation. Due to a UN treaty signed previously, every strand of the virus deactivated after 72 hours. Unfortunately, that was long enough to wipe out 97% of the world's population.
There were no antidotes developed for the viruses, so once a person was infected, there was no chance of them surviving. Within hours, the infected was deceased. It is not known why, but a vary small percentage of children and teenagers seemed immune to the viruses. Those children and teens (a total of 3% of the world's population) were the only survivors left after the bombings.
Now, it has been almost 2 years since the bombings. In the city of Brookfield a rather large group of survivors have gathered together and formed a sort of new civilization. Every one of them is now age 21 or younger, but that hasn't stopped progress. These kids and young adults have broken off into tribes, based upon their strengths, morals, and other factors.
Currently, the tribes have just gotten the water system running again, and the same with the electrical grid. There are still some flaws, but at least the electric grid is running off of wind and solar energies! The Bug tribe did their best to ensure that all will go smoothly with the power from here on out, while still trying to make a better world for the future.
