The Kiribati Evacuation Force

Our small island finds itself in enormous peril. Mother nature has laid waste to our homeland as the sea swallows up all we know and love. Countries such as Kiribati have become prey for the mindless actions of the few, and it is up to you to take a stand. Everything hangs in the balance, and your actions will determine our great country’s future. Citizens must relocate, maps must be redrawn, and the world must observe our plight with terror. As a leader of our island, can you ensure our survival? One small misstep could mean the demise of an entire island and all its treasures. It is up to you to save Kiribati.
