USI6 takes place on Earth, unlike many other USIs. Its official developement is divided in two parts. Most of the first part takes place in European Mycelia while Mycelia fends off the UK invasion. The second part is the story of the showdown between Africa and the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (under the control of the Japanese Empire). Africa wins at the end.
USI6 is actually set somewhere in the future. Although the general geography of the land is still the same as it is today (though not exactly), major geopolitical changes have taken place. Most of the countries of the past have disapeared; the world has seemingly known a state of technological regression and computer technology, though used, is not at all widespread as it is today; the global population has dramatically decreased, reasons unknown; general history about the past of the world is known but most of the population, in Europe at least, doesn't seem to care; everybody knows the world's geography because maps are easily found, but most countries don't know what lies past their neighbors.
Geography and geopolitical situation
Mycelia covers about all Europe, from what was known as the Portugal to Eastern Europe. The Channel width has increased and Paris and London are both seaports now. Most of the Mycelian population can be found where old France was. UK still exists as it existed in the past and is a major power in Europe, and the one Mycelia must deal with the most.
Although important countries, Mycelia and UK are second-rate powers now. African countries are the real deal. Africa is actually a real federation of city-states often unofficially called the African Unity (l'Unité africaine). Official name: Afrika Kurufaba ("Great Assembly of Africa" in the Malinké language; see article for other often employed (now deprecated because to western-sounding) names). It encompasses all African regions (even Marocco and other North-African arabic nations) and is more of a Federation really.
In the East, Russia is still largely uncharted, and beyond that nothing is known from Mycelians. Far, far in the East, old Japan still exists as a new Japanese Empire and has finally founded its Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, in cooperation with other Asian countries.
US's state is unknown.
