Empires/Governments in Visions of Madness: (In order of size)
American Empire – Consists of the pacific islands and all of North America as well as parts of Central and South America.
British Commonwealth – Consists of the current United Kingdom, Ireland, Greenland, Scotland and Wales. Also maintains multiple overseas territories including Australia.
Soviet Republic – Consists of all the former USSR member states.
Chinese Empire – Consists of most of Asia.
Germanic Empire – Controls a large number of European Nations and EU territories.
Human Freedom Coalition – A small number of unaligned nations whom fight as a resistance movement against the larger empires that currently dominate the world.
Japanese Empire – Japan is currently left alone by the larger empires and currently supported by the American empire even though political tensions exist. Japan is left alone due to its superior technology, large number of magic users in addition to its large standing military.
The Vatican – Labeled as the defenders of God and apparently given a large amount of magical powers from God the Vatican maintains a temple of knowledge about magic and is held almost completely uncontested due to its powerful magic force.
The world VoM takes place in has had some major changes with its history due to the use of magic users by some of the more powerful empires. An example is that the Germans won World War II but were pushed out of Britain after the war by a fairly powerful resistance movement. America also at one point had a tyrannical president whom ordered the military to take over both Mexico and Canada after it left the British Commonwealth. China also took the majority of the Asian nations after the Korean and Vietnamese conflicts. America and China are in a cold war; the Soviet Republic is on the verge of financial collapse only being kept alive by its underground of abducting and selling magic users to the other Empires.
Following the third Battle of Tokyo Japan joined the HFC and reconsolidated JSSDRIC and its Research Divisions into a Special Forces branch with the express purpose of battling both the American Empire and the German Empire.
