World War III, or the Third World War (WW3, WWIII) is a global military conflict lasting from June 2008 (2008 Invasion of Brazil) to the present. This, section for section, has involved many of the world's nations. In some of the sections, some nations were allied, and in others opposed each other/remained neutral, thus making World War III unique from World Wars I and II. The conflict was labeled as a World War on January 11th 2010, with the 2010 Yarphese War, however, earlier conflicts, like the Everett-Russia War or the 2008 Invasion of Brazil have also been seen as starting points.

The war has been fought all over the world, and had numerous fronts and theaters. The main players in this war, are the Grand Yarphese Republic, which is usually on one side, the United States, the Union of Everett, Cascadia, the United Kingdom, France and Germany which are usually, but not always, allied with each other. Since 2011, the war has been quiet, with little armed conflicts occurring. Several nations have petitioned the United Nations to establish an official end to the war, however, others, such as the United States have apposed and are threatening to veto any such declarations.

The Amazon Campaign ended in mid-2012, but officially the war is still ongoing. There has been no recent reports of violence, but no movements towards peace either.

Background[]

Since the end of the Cold War, the world political map was radically altered with the founding of new nations. The Grand Yarphese Republic, which was founded in 1994 out of already flawed states, led to the West's monitoring of the nation. The United States was especially vary, sharing their suspicion with countries such as the United Kingdom and by 2003, the Union of Everett.

By 2010, the GYR was widely known for its interests in gaining influence in the Western hemisphere. The Second Falklands War is commonly accepted as the start of World War 3, when the Yarphese, in pursuit of that influence, invaded the disputed British-Argentinian territory of the Falkland Islands. However, 2009 was officially designated as the start of the war, as by that time the Union of Everett was already engaged in conflicts in the Middle East.

Many political commentators say the invasion of the Falkland Islands was seen as an opportunity by the United States to prove its might to the world. The United States was largely absent during the invasion, however, by the Siege of the Grand Yarphese Republic, the United States had become a prominent participant to World War III.
