The Greater Korean Republic was once a divided country located on the Korean Peninsula with North Korea to the north and South Korea to the south. In the year 2013, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un reunified the two countries. In 2018, the GKR forced Japan's surrender to the GKR. Southeast Asian nations were then annexed by the GKR in 2021. The Greater Korean Republic then set their sights to the weakened United States. In 2024, Kim Jong-un announced a new satellite program with the aim of replacing the decaying GPS systems, which America cannot afford to repair.
Invasion of AmericaEdit
On 15 January 2025, a thermonuclear blast over Kansas blankets the entire United States with a massive electromagnetic pulse disabling all electronics. It completely wipes out the entire power grid, literally and completely darkening the United States. Then, on January 18, a large naval, amphibious and air invasion of Hawaii was initiated; systematically taking over the entire state, and every single island. Soon later, on January 25 a complete surprise invasion was initiated on the West Coast. All breaches were along the coastline and airline, in what is a campaign of rapid dominance. The Koreans were deployed by their air and naval forces, quickly taking over the entire area.
Korean forces were also dropped into the Midwest by an air assault, taking over the entire area. On 24 January 2026 the city of Las Vegas was attacked. On May 16 the Korean People's Army attacked Salt Lake City, beginning with a massive air assault using MiG Fighters, bombing and obliterating the entire city. And finally, ending with Operation Water Snake, the Koreans having effectively contaminated the Mississippi River and creating a barrier between the New Korean Federation of Occupied America in the west and what is left of the United States in the east. By the end of 2026 the United States was now divided, and Korea controls exactly two-thirds of the United States.
The War BeginsEdit
With the invasion over and the occupation still continuing, individual American Resistance cells and the remnants of the U.S. Armed Forces begin to fight back. In the newly formed New Korean Federation of Occupied America, some U.S. military units still operate in scattered areas along with the Resistance. The Resistance launched guerrilla attacks against GKR occupational authorities and the Korean People's Army.
In 2027, the U.S. military planned an attack to take San Francisco, which was currently the supreme headquarters for the Korean People's Army. The U.S. military was unable to fully attack the city due to the lack of fuel for their air units. The Resistance from Montrose, Colorado helped in retrieving the fuel by stealing it from the Koreans in the Lake Tahoe area after recruiting the help of Robert Jacobs. Though this endeavor cost the loss of their base and many of their people, the Resistance were able to retrieve the fuel and delivering them to San Francisco. With the air units refueled, the U.S. military launched their assault on San Francisco from Marin County that ended in a victory for the Americans.
In the end of the battle, US forces retook San Francisco, denying the GKR its military and propaganda capital in the continental United States. The battle was a turning point in America's guerrilla war against the Koreans, as European news agencies soon after reported that the European Union Defense Council was to hold an emergency session to formulate a plan to provide military support for the Americans against the Greater Korean Republic.
