Orders of Battle
Africa in 2300AD is a relatively stable region dominated by four main powers; the French Empire, Azania, Nigeria and the United Arab Republic. The influence of the French and the location of the beanstalk in Libreville have brought increasing wealth to the continent.

Asia has been the scene of the recent Central Asian War, the closest humanity has been to World War IV in three hundred years. Manchuria and Russia dominate the Asian land mass, whilst France and Japan have a strong peripheral influence on affairs in the region. A fragmented Indian Subcontinent is the scene of near constant warfare between Balkanised and belligerent states.

Europe remains central to world events being home to three major powers; France, Germany and Britain, as well as a host of lesser players. The long running peace and stability of the continent under French hegemony was shattered with the Reunification of Germany and the resulting war between France and Germany. Today an armed peace reigns in the region whilst the key European powers have been forced to defend their colonies from the alien threat of the Kafers.

The Middle East is a region where international tension is always bubbling below the surface. France has notable influence in Syria and Iraq, while Japan has close ties to Arabia. Iran, UAR, Turkey and Palestine are strongly independent voices in the region who oppose any outside hegemony whilst maintaining their own rivalries.

North America has been a likely flash point since the end of World War 3 and the Mexican annexation of southern regions of the United States. Today a fiercely independent Texas stands between a reduced America who has neither forgiven or forgotten and a Mexico who controls all of central America. While confrontation and tension is high in the south in the north Canada has made her own way in the world.

Australia stands as a leader in Oceania despite the succession of Tasmania and North Queensland and plays an influential role in global affairs through her diplomacy, her partnership with America and her colonial holdings off-world.

South America has been recognised as the most belligerent of Earth's continents for over a century. The rivalry between Argentina and Brazil has erupted into three major wars that have involved the whole continent. It has also resulted in the creation of the highly unstable Incan Republic from the former states of Ecuador, Peru and Columbia. Popular opinion is that a fourth Rio Plato War is only a matter of time.

In a century and a half of off-world colonisation humanity has established no fewer than 55 colonies on 29 worlds. The vast majority of these are still governed by their mother country but an increasing number are gaining their independence. Tiny Tanstaafl led the way almost 50 years ago breaking free from corporate governance and is now embroiled in a struggle for survival against the Kafers. Elysia fought a long battle for independence from the French on remote Joi and is still a state in turmoil. The War of German Reunification saw two former Bavarian colonies, Heidelsheimat and potentially mighty Freihafen strike out on their own. On Tirane Wellon peacefully separated from Britain following decades of Home Rule. All these states are developing their own military forces.

Whilst 2300AD has no overreaching system of multinational alliance like the 20th Century's NATO, international cooperation is war from unknown.
