WWIII began in the year 2036, with U.S. President Howards being named official chairman of NATO. President Howards was assasinated later that year, in only his second term as President when visiting the Middle East. His Vice President, Jennifer Tracy was then named President of the Uniter States. She was the first female President ever to be in office. President Tracy had a slightly different view on global affairs than Howards. She was furious due to the assasination of her President and good friend. In response, President Tracy declared war on the Middle East. Within weeks, U.S. drones were already in Syria and over 2 million people had already died.
In 2037, President Tracy was given word that it was not Syria that was responsible for President Howards' assasintaion, it was North Korea. She declared war on North Korea during her last six months as President. Congress, however overruled her declaration and Jennifer Tracy was impeached for several war crimes with only 3 months left to her term. The President for these 3 months was Speaker of the House, Robert Lewis. During Lewis' term as President, North Korea declared war on the U.S. Lewis made a difficiult decision and instead of going to war with North Korea, he decided in his last month as President to send nuclear missiles into North Korea, demolishing the country as a whole. This decision was backed by Congress and by 2039, North Korea was nothing but rubble.

China surrendered on March 1, 2041 and by March 2, 2041, the war was entirely over. President Joshua Gordon was reelected in 2042 and was known as one of the greatest presidents during one of the worst times. Gordon was proceeded by President and former Wisconsin Governor, David Jackson. Gordon died in 2101, at the age of 115.
