It is the year 2096. Maybe...
The Great War that destroyed the technological society of the 20th century took place at some point between the years 2000 and 2030. It was a worldwide conflict involving massive quantities of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of unimaginable power. Knowledge of how it began, why it was fought and what nations were on which side is long lost. All that is known is that it was the most devastating war in history - engulfing every nation on earth - and that all of the world's major urban centres, and their inhabitants, were destroyed.
More than half the world's population was killed in nuclear and chemical strikes, and from vicious bio-plagues unleashed as weapons. Over 99% of the survivors perished during the twenty year nuclear winter that followed. For ten of those years it is said that the sun wasn't even visible in the sky, and even the exact year was forgotten.
