A Universal Disarmament Treaty has supposedly eliminated war by banning all weapons developed after 1900, but gladiatorial contests using pre-1900 weapons have become the means of settling disputes between both corporations and governments. But nuclear weapons still exist, and a situation arises in which they might be used, but in the end the three main power-blocs, the Western bloc, the Soviet bloc, and Common Europe agree to cooperate.
