The North Korean civil war was a brief conflict that began in the immediate aftermath of the fall of the North Korean regime initiated by Christian Atarashimono in January 2017. Chris had previously overthrown three tyrannical dictatorships, with mixed results. Eritrea had a new semi-democratic government formed with an isolationist foreign policy, the Congo was quickly conquered by the DRC, and after the fall of Assad's government, Syria quickly fell under the iron fist of the Syrian Opposition.

Wiping out the Kim dynasty and all it's lines of succession had been one of Chris' goals ever since becoming Kira, and on January 16 a "window of opportunity" allowed him to do so. But unlike with the previous three experiments, the nation shattered into several competing factions, which quickly formed into three groups: Those who wanted North Korea to reunify with the South (supported by South Korea, Japan, Australia, the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom), those who wished for an independent, democratic North Korea (supported by China), and those still loyal to the Kim regime.

By pure un-luck, the loyalist faction managed to hold onto the nation's entire nuclear arsenal, including the ICBM facilities. On March 21, they made an official statement that if any of their important and/or high-ranking members died of heart attacks, or under any suspicious circumstances, they'd launch their entire nuclear arsenal in retaliation. With millions of lives at stake, Chris had no choice but to let them be.

The "Forty-minute War"

Despite the fact that Chris never interfered with the loyalist faction, on July 3, the nation began the deadliest nuclear exchange the world had seen up until that point. After the order was given at 10:40AM Sydney time, all 63 nuclear missiles in the loyalists' possession were simultaneously launched at 10:45, and are detected by NORAD three minutes later. The following is a breakdown of what targets were hit in each country.

South Korea

Starting at 10:49 (also the same minute NORAD contacted the White House's crisis coordinator), a series of KN-02, Hwasong-5, Hwasong-6 and Scud missiles hit military bases across South Korea. The following 13 locations were successfully hit and destroyed in nuclear detonations:
South Korea nuked

Camp Carroll, USAG Yongsan, Kunsan Air Base, Camp Humphreys, Osan Air Base, Camp Stanley, Camp Hovey, Camp Casey, Camp Henry, Camp Jackson, Camp Kim, Camp Red Cloud, Camp Walker

A further 6 locations were targetted, but the missiles for them were eitehr intercepted or malfunctioned:

Camp Eagle, Camp Market, Fleet Activities Chinhae, K-16 Air Base, Camp Coiner, Command Post Tango

The warheads targetted at South Korea were intentionally more low-yield than with further targets, and the combined yeild of all detonations was a mere 130 kilotons. Still, 386,000 South Koreans and hundreds of American military personell were killed and 1,030,000 more were injured.


At 10:51, Iwakuni was the first place in Japan to witness what the nation hadn't seen since 1945, shortly followed by other locations around the country. While Japan received more detonations than any other country from a barrage of Rodong-1 and Taepodong-1 missiles, only 8 were on the actual mainland. These targets were:

MCAS Iwakuni, Fleet Activities Sasebo, Camp Fuji, Fleet Activities Yokosuka, Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Camp Zama, Yokota Air Base, Misawa Air Base

On the mainland, Japanese fatalities numbered 197,000 and injuries numbered 518,000, with a combined detonation yeild of 160 kilotons.
Japan nuked

Devastation was highest in Okinawa where, starting at 10:55, 10 detonations with a combined yeild of 200 kilotons killed 134,000 and injured 312,000. Locations hit in Okinawa were:

Fort Buckner, Camp Lester, Kadena Air Base, Camp McTureous, Camp Schwab, Torii Station, Camp Hansen, Camp Courtney, Camp Foster, Camp Kinser

A further 5 targets were spared when their missiles malfunctioned or were intercepted:

Camp S.D. Butler, MCAS Futenma, Yontan Airfeild, Fleet Activities Okinawa, Camp Gonsalves

In total, the 18 detonations with a combined yeild of 360 kilotons killed 331,000 Japanese and injured 830,000. Among the dead were princes Naruhito and Fumihito, both killed at 10:53 when the outskirts of Tokyo were hit. This left 10-year-old Hisahito as the next in line to the Crysanthemum throne.


Guam nuked
As the mushroom clouds over South Kore and Japan cleared, two Musudan missiles coasted over the ocean towards Guam. Meanwhile, the White House was in a state of panic and anxiety. President Donald J Trump and his top advisors had all been located and assembled by 10:52 (8:52PM Washington DC time), and after double- and triple-checks confirmed the attacks, and a quick breifing informed them of the situation, a full nuclear counterattack was authorized. By the time Team Kira had become aware of the incoming strike at around 11:00, Britain and Israel had held off their nuclear counterattacks in order to allow a strong American attack. One minute later, Naval Base Guam and Anderson AFB were both hit with 20 kiloton warheads, totalling 4000 fatalities and a further 4000 injuries.


Australia had for years been excluded from any of North Korea's targetting lists due to a lack of worthwhile targets, but the appearance of Kira and purging of the Kim regime quickly changed that.

United States

United States nuked


Israel nuked

United Kingdom

Australia nuked


Brussels was initially targeted as it was the headquarters of both the EU and NATO, along with nuclear weapons bases and facilities in France and nuclear-armed NATO bases in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Turkey, as well as the cities of Paris, Berlin, Ankara, Rome and Amsterdam. All of these were taken off the target list due to a limited number of ICBMs.

North Korea

North Korea nuked
