Country Information

IG Factbook: "Founded in 1747, the country served as a buffer between the British and Russian Empires until it won independence from notional British control in 1919. A brief experiment in democracy ended in a 1973 coup and a 1978 communist counter-coup followed by the Soviet Union invading in 1979. The USSR withdrew in 1989 and a series of subsequent civil wars saw Kabul finally fall in 1996 to the Taliban. Following the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks, a US, Allied, and anti-Taliban Northern Alliance military action toppled the Taliban for sheltering Osama Bin Laden. In December 2004, Hamid Karzai was elected president of Afghanistan but a resurgent Taliban, provincial instability and corruption remain serious challenges."


  • The banner hanging on the building when the country is in its "Total anarchy" and "No longer exists" states reads "شفاء" which translates to "healing" in Pashto. Oddly enough, the letters are in the other way around.

City Cam

In Business as usual, we are in Kabul, as it shows the Agricultural Development Bank of Afghanistan, likely near a military base as shown from the armored vehicle on the right. To the left, there is a big business building at around 12 floors high. We know its likely an industrial area as there are some cars in the background likely civilians that are about to do their day-shifts. In between the road, there seems to be advertising banners with a man on them on the poles.

In General Disruption, it seems that martial law is already starting to take effect to slow the spread of the disease. In the background we can see a barrier, guarded by what seems to be police. in the sky a helicopter appears. For some unknown reason two destroyed cars are nearby the barrier, with 2 people standing next to one of those cars, and police. In the foreground we see a single soldier patrolling the area. The scene is still relatively peaceful, however.

In Widespread Disorder/Close to anarchy, the tone of the City Cams have completely changed. This is the first cam in Afghanistan where we can see the civilians properly. The civilians are rioting and appears to be shot at. Now, we can see more forceful actions be taken via swat forces with riot shields trying to quell the riots. Smoke is all around, covering most of the City Cam, with the worst of the smoke coming from the bank itself.

In Total Anarchy and No longer exists, The City Cams now show the aftermath of the situation, as everyone has died of the plague, and the scene is dark and dreary. The military soldier on the left of the cam is now replaced with a broken, decimated yellow car. The smoke is all gone except for the smoke coming out from the bank. Speaking of which, there is now a banner with strings attached which says شفاء, or "healing" in Pashto.(oddly in reverse). In the sky, the helicopter is now gone. Back in the ground we can see the dead corpses of civilians lying about in body bags. The first advertisement banner has been replaced with a biohazard, as well as one on the barrier from before.
