It's 2022, and the State of Play is ever changing...

The world is in a state of post-pandemic recovery.

In Europe, Boris Johnson has been ousted from power in the UK, replaced by a relatively unknown entity from across the political divide and the fallout from Brexit is being felt across the EU. The long serving Angela Merkel is gone, Macron lost his own election and Italy is on a precipice as their coalition government stands on the brink of collapse. Then, in a terrifying move, President Vladimir Putin, fearing NATO expansion, launches an unprovoked attack on Ukraine. Condemnation is swift, with Ukraine's allies rallying to her aid. Finland and Sweden seek to become members of NATO in an effort to protect their interests. Events soon take a turn when an attack on Russian soil brings an unknown player to the diplomatic table.

Across the Atlantic, the United States is undergoing its own fundamental shift as a new President is elected. For the first time in history, an independent candidate known for his middle-of-the-road politics, demanding bipartisan actions and cooperation around the country has become a voice of reason for the nation. But can he navigate the corridors of power without a party to support his endeavours?

Meanwhile, developments in the South China Sea threaten to boil over as China seems to be preparing for an invasion of Taiwan, whilst the peaceful nation of Japan is rocked by the assassination of their former Prime Minister.

Across the globe, it becomes increasingly apparent that actions have consequences, with ramifications felt far and wide as the 'State of Play' is ever changing. How, and where, will you fit in? Choose a nation and take it on your own path of self-determination, whilst contributing to a wide variety of world events. Will you right the wrongs of your predecessor? Or will you continue in the same vein? Will you choose a path of diplomacy, or of aggression?
