Everything was good in america until 2040. Our nation became even more powerful. We built up our miltiary. we become the world's superpower. Then without warning our whole nation, then the world fell down after the disease called the destroyer. The destroyer caused you to destroy your town, your house and go crazy and loot towns and riot. This disease spread quickly and caused lots of chaos. It caused death after 12 days. The destroyer killed 98.5% of the world in less than a year. 1.5% were immune to the destoyer. With that fatality rate govermental destruction quickly followed. Those who loted were not always infected, sometimes they were just people taking advantage of govermental destruction. People researching a cure of the disease, usually became infected themselves even with bio security level 4 , the highest bio security offered. With the goverment gone there was no one to pay for the research. With no one to pay, a potential cure that was found was not developed which could have saved lives. The scientists were so close to a cure. A few people worked on a cure, on their own initative. usually because their family members died from the disease. The destoyer usually killed the researchers. Their once was a time when there were 9.5 billion people in the world. 9,358,000,000 died worldwide. 142,000,000 survivors. In america a population of 400 million pre-plague . 394 million dead in anerica. 6 million alive. In China a pre-plague population of 1.5 billion ,1,478,000,000 died. their were 22 million survivors. However most of the survivors sucumed to other disease ( yellow fever, a reemergent smallpox and others. Seventy- five perecnt of the survivors sucumed to disease or starvation. 106,500,000 died from thr after effects. 35,500,000 people survived the disease and after effects. Their is still some towns that survived. Now a group of scientist are founding a town in the East Coast Wasteland, an area of complete distruction due to the destroyer. The origin theory are numerous especially since science is almosy completely destroyed. Some say it was a secret goverment bioweapon from Russia, China, or North korea. Others say it came from the middle east. Others say it came from east asia. Others say it came from the slums in some third world country.
