Like most of the rest of the world, Central and South America suffered substantial population loss. However, they escaped a great deal of the damage caused by nuclear and biological weapons. Throughout Central and South America, Mother Nature made a dramatic and intimidating recovery; Jungles have grown impossibly dense, wildlife is abundant, and rivers flow wide and clear.

Central America is home to four major urban centres: Greater Mexico City, the Yucatan Peninsula’s Terranova City, Sao Paulo, and the Island City of Divinus. Numerous other cities, many of considerable size and population, dot Central and South America, but these four provide the backbone of the region’s commerce and cultural exchanges (4.2).
