January 01, 2060
In the 2060s, people rebuilt the communities with proper cities. Old and destroyed buildings were torn down and new ones were built in their place. Most of the communities around the world would be walled off, creating a safe space and removing the fear of the infected. With the lack of tools and technology, most of this work took years to complete. Some centrally controlled technology was even put in place, such as commercial billboards and more.

A New Hope
Those communities that survived, approximately five hundred, received the same message from a mysterious organization. The organization promised food and shelter for the settlements, and in return only required those who wanted it to work for them. The communities that accepted this, amongst them Nyheim, were put under the rule of the people-dubbed “Council”. A local authority was put in place. At the end of the 2050s, the Council had each of the remaining communities under its control.

Some Things Never Change
During the 2040s, many of these communities were in conflict with each other over resources as they became more scarce as time passed. Hundreds of communities fell in the aftermath. Riots in local communities also caused people to seek out other communities nearby with better economies and resources.
Regions in Europe, America and China found themselves once again in a world of factionalism with some areas finding themselves surviving solely on scavenging technology, while others began to find their own ways. One of these strongholds that found their own way was located in the far north, where even the flu suffered from the cold. Nyheim.

The New Breed
A new generation was born. This generation was born out of the ashes of the old world, and into various small, isolated communities which could be considered worlds of their own. Former countries were splintered by thousands of these isolated communities. While some managed to survive, and even thrive, in these haunting days, some communities tried desperately to hang onto the echoes of the past. Others rejected this, and viewed the world as needing a new way of life, a new being. A new step in rebuilding humanity.

The Great Depression
Already suffering greatly after the effects of the Frenzied flu, the human race suffered further from the consequent third wave. The failure to mass produce a vaccine, along with political and economical conflicts, drove the world into a new dark age.

The Formation of Nyheim
Nyheim was formed as a city, turned into a partly recognized state. The state took refugees from all the surrounding countries and the tension between Nyheim and Norway continued throughout the decade. Just before starting an all out war at the end of the decade, the frenzied flu hit the world. As a result of this the two states agreed on a truce to focus on the real threat.
