In UN:SOC you will interact with players all over the world! Each megagame location will represent a different state of a fictionalized America. While each state will contend with their own challenges and crisis, they will still have the ability to interact and affect each other. So, for example, Governors of neighboring states will be able to confer with their counterparts – pass on what they have learned, or warn of cross-border threats.
