The plot begins with the United States of America stating its intentions to defeat all of its enemies. It asks Canada for help in defining these enemies, and Canada points out Russia for its aggression towards the EU and Ukraine, China for its rapid economic growth, and India for similar reasons. It also mentions South Africa for its recent annexation of Lesotho and Swaziland, and Brazil, who soon after annexes Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. France states its dissatisfaction at this annexation and America suggests a NATO retaliation on Brazil. Canada argues against this, as all 5 previously mentioned nations are the BRICS countries, and thus there is a chance that they would defend each other in the event of a war.
South Africa declares war on Namibia, Botswana, and Mozambique, quickly dragging Zimbabwe into the war as well. South Africa easily bests the coalition and annexes the vast majority of the territory it occupied, aside from a small portion of Mozambique, who surrendered just before the war ended.
Watching on, Sudan takes inspiration from the recent aggression and declares war on South Sudan. Egypt notices that the Sudanese forces are concentrated on their southern fronts, and begins pounding into the undefended north. Sudan soon is occupied by Egypt and South Sudan, yet Egypt continues invading into territory occupies by South Sudan, eventually forcing them to surrender. Egypt then annexes Sudan and South Sudan, and Libya expresses its displeasure. Egypt then applies for membership in BRICS, and despite initial hesitation from Russia, China is immediately interested and questions Egypt's intentions. Russia believes that Egypt is bluffing about their power, and in response, Egypt declares war on Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, and Djibouti and annexes all land bordering the Red Sea, reforming into the Egyptian Empire. China is impressed and admits Egypt into BRICS, changing the name of the alliance to the Bilateral Rational Industrialized Confederation of States to accompany Egypt.
Russia then expands BRICS by turning Mongolia and Central Asia, in the form of a new state named the Union of the Turkic People, into satellite states. In response, the United States admits Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia, Mexico, Colombia, Australia, New Zealand and Japan into NATO. Niger expresses concern over the recent expansion of NATO and BRICS, and Mali chimes in, claiming that the recent addition of Egypt into BRICS sets the continent to be dominated by the alliance. Algeria creates an alliance called the African Union, and soon Mauritania, Mali, Libya, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Chad, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Cameroon, the Central African Republic and Ethiopia join.
