Earth's countries and continents were wiped out in the wars. Over the thousands of years there have been tectonic shifts that have shifted the continents of planet Earth. New lands are occupied by new people and new animals.
Rise is centered around Novas, one of the larger nations that overlaps much of what once was Europe and Russia. Novas is a prospering land. The largest of the five nations, it has the highest rates of produce.
Novas has a varied landscape that has changed a good deal since the wars began. It has a mountainous region that Golds train their young in, it has a bustling technological flatlands, it has marshes and even desert. Every region is shared by the hierarchy, and every community adapts to the environments around them.
Aquivis is the nation famous for port towns and quiet, contemplative lands full of lush greenery and swooping lakes. Aquivis is a nation made out of coastlines. Their communities expand towards the inner lands but Aquivis is still the smallest of the nations. The people that reside there are typically looked down upon by other nations, thinking them to be weak.
Every coast in the world is thought to be their territory, though they welcome people to enjoy the beach life with them. The biggest Aquivis territory is what was once South America.
Mysidian is the nation of death. It is here that Obsidians are bred and trained. It consists over what was once America and Canada. War machines and star ships are built here in this industrial, smoggy nation.
Libél resides over what was Australia, New Zealand and constellation of islands around Japan. Libél is the technological manufacturing nation, known for spewing intelligent minds to be sent to Novas. Libél is a land tortured by the wars and thus proves very difficult to grow many crops there.
Ventria is the nation of life. It is renowned for growing foods and life. Ventria takes up all the space the other nations do not need and they dedicate the land to growth. They are a nation of naturalists that want the Earth to be able to look out for itself. Commonly, Ventrians are not fans of Mysidians. The biggest Ventria territory is what was once Earth's Africa, where people use now genetically improved seeds to grow food even in the driest of deserts.

Below is a list of all technology found on Rise! Do not ask about the science of the items, just focus on the creativity and the fun to be had! Feel free to suggest some more.
Technology has come a long way regarding robotic limbs and prothesis. The best models work as well as an organic limb, not to mention the aditional tech that cam be implemented as well. There's even some people who opt for amputating healthy limbs just so they can have a prosthetic one. These limbs are not very cheap, so usually only mid and high colors can afford them.
Hover boots are a privilege only the higher colours seem to have. Some midColours can work for months for just one pair, but a highColour can have a whole wardrobe full. Hover boots do simply as they say on the tin.
Like the hover boot, it does as it says on the tin. The hover car appears to be a strictly high-mid color piece of equipment. It floats steadily in the air and is silent as it drives.
Thousands of years ago, people had guns. Now, there are scorchers. The scorcher will fire bullets just like those old weapons did but are far more advanced. Silencers completely silence a shot. The bullets can be explosive, can ignite a fire, and much more.
Worn only by Blues, DigiTats allow a Blue to connect with whatever piece of technology they are flying. Their minds become one with the ship and their brains enter a digital plane where they read pure data with ease. It makes them far more efficient. They gain control and access to the vessel as a whole. It's illegal to any color but Blue to have functioning DigiTats, which doesn't stop people from copying the design, however. DigiTats start from the tip of a Blue's fingers on both hands and go across the skin up to their scalp. Blues get shaved off to get the Tats but hair grows normally after that and does not affect them.
Legend says there's a varied number of DigiTats that connects to all sorts of tech for a variety of reasons, not all of them innocent. But that's just a rumor, and anyone caught having these type of DigiTats is committing a serious crime.
Popularly called game sims or just sims, players hook their mind directly inside the game and it's like they are living inside the game itself. But don't worry, it's completely safe, stories about people's minds being trapped inside sims are things of movies.
Star ships come in all shapes and sizes and are used for soaring through the massive universe we have around us.
Earth has a decent spaceship navy, enough to defend the planet from any invasors that might get funny ideas.
A type of flying/hovering robot to treat the injured. They have blinking indicators and emit a whine while moving. They are capable of cauterizing wounds and healing nearly all of them. Yellows work alongside these daily and some MedBots can even fill the role of paramedics and replace the old concept of an ambulance, depending on their size.
A very thin display mounted on the arm. Dependent on the internet to provide information. It can vibrate to indicate notifications. Different Colors may personalize their datapad with their specific aesthetic.
A device used by Carvers (a Violet occupation) to cut open the body so alterations could be made.

Below is a list of all the creatures found on Rise! Do not ask about the science of the items, just focus on the creativity and the fun to be had! Feel free to suggest some more.
In this future, the miracle work of Violets known as Carvers and Yellows that scavenger ancient DNA can bring back to life previously extinct creatures. Red pandas, snow leopards, lumbering rhinos. All brought back to life, all hunted anew.
The world as we know it is void of magic. There is no doubting this. Science has advanced us beyond all other expectations. With the miraculous work of the Violets, they have managed to recreate things of dreams. Griffins, available only to Golds. Krakens surrounding the Obsidian nation, haunting the slaves with fear. Rare though they are, the mythical beast have been made possible.
In an act to control the population, Violets created venomous creatures to roam the earth.
Pitvipers, venomous snakes that roam the Red mines, striking down any Red that gets too close. A pitviper will burrow into your flesh and find home in your stomach, if you can't stop it fast enough.
Toxic scorpions, used by Golds and Greys for torture and lie detection, will latch themselves to the wrist of the accused. They are trained to puncture the flesh in one killing blow if the accused's pulse races too fast.
Other venomous creatures roam the world we live in.
Like our ancestors, we appreciate the company of a pet. The unconditional love and affection. Like the past, there are still dogs, cats, fish and birds. All manner of creatures still roam the earth, still our loving pets.
CATTLE & HARVEST
As above, many of Earth's cattle have lived through the years and continue to be a healthy source of food. New creatures, however, do now exist. Silk is harvested from deep within the mines, where dangerous arachnids are lulled to sleep by wary Reds.

Each individual who hopes to become a White must first be aware of the fact that they will be permanently leaving behind their current Color. To fully detach themselves from their initial Color, a future White must go through a "ritual of purification".
The ritual is built as it follows:
Children from orphanages would sometimes be chosen by Whites to be mentored and to join the religious lifestyle and grow into it.
Rituals conduced inside of the temples will often be performed by priests and priestesses and/or by virgin maidens wielding iron daggers and gold laurels, while children carry triangular standards of scepters, swords, and scrolls with laurels.
A White may choose which God to form a bond with, or they may focus on rituals or general God offerings.
GODS & GODDESSES
Those can happen, yes. Things that are almost too much of a coincidence. Some believe them, some dont, much like in real life.
- [ Elysian Fields ] where pure souls and heroes were sent, the ultimate reward of green fields and pure rivers.
- [ Tartarus ] where the wicked and evil were sent for an eternity of torture.
- And the [ Asphodel Fields ], where people who did equally bad and good things were sent, people who didn't deserve the Elysian Fields but also weren't bad enough to deserve Tartarus. Like a purgatory.
How are aliens viewed?
What's the religion like?
They are quite obsessed with living a life without sin. Additionally, there are no rituals involving animal sacrifices, and definitely no human ones either. Though, each God can have a branch of more taboo worshipers that take things too far, and their practices are not officially recognized by the White leaders. Taking Pluto for example, more obsessed worshipers might get a little murder crazy.

SPONSORS & GLADIATORS INFO
Unspoken rules of the arena:
Roman-inspired arenas were built for celebrations and started being used for bloody gladiator fights as well, with exclusive access once metallic colors figured that they made the law and decided what’s legal and what’s illegal.
As the fights became legal, they were classified as an independent sport. Other variations include carriage fights and races, gladiator vs beasts and so on.
The media got its eye on the sport, PR and nation-wide broadcasting of fights began
The sport is still going strong now, with many other arenas popping up across the globe as well (much like stadiums for other sports)
