'Rebuild your Nation's economy.....Develop your society.....Expand your influence......On Earth's last surviving continent. Welcome to NEW EARTH...'
Just one continent remains home to civilisation after a cataclysmic event. Much of the human race has perished – from billions to a few million. The world as we knew it has gone. Those that survived are split into various ‘factions’ (or proto-nations). Each player assumes the role of a ‘government’ leader charged with building his/her ‘country’ by developing existing resources and assets; whilst expending production in the form of consumption and government cash on infrastructure.
As much as each nation will want to trade with each other, there remains the probability that political and economical control of land and resources (zones) become ever more critical. Progress is measured in terms of social development levels and the emergence of new cities. The higher the Development Level the higher the value of each zone and thus victory points, but watch out for the 'catastrophes'.
