World War 3 saw no bombs or troops, but instead massive cyber-warfare which crippled most countries' infrastructures. Thus began the Great Global Diaspora, the biggest migration in the history of mankind, in search of basic needs such as water and social stability of some sort. During the first decade, the forced relocation of entire populations blurred concepts such as national, ethnic, and cultural identity. But in the long term it had the exact opposite effect: dispersed in foreign lands without anything resembling a sense of "home", people grouped in Neo-Tribal underground societies, soon engaged in local-based, violent disputes for territorial control.
