The Great Adonian War (GAW), also known as the World War or the Great War, was a global war centered in Illypnia and Fosia that began on 28 July 1934 and lasted until 11 November 1947, though related conflicts began earlier and some countries' participation ended earlier. It involved the vast majority of Adonia's nations — including all of the great powers — eventually forming three opposing military alliances: the Allied Pact, the Coastal Powers and the Communist Alliance. It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than 400 million people from over ?? countries. In a state of "total war", the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians and the strategic bombing of industrial and population centers, it resulted in an estimated 156 million civilian and 112 million military fatalities, for a total of 268 million dead. These made the Great Adonian War the deadliest conflict in human history.
