East Asia

South Korea is a nation located in East Asia.


Twenty years ago, South Korea was attacked by an Omnic Colossus that rose from the depths of the East China Sea. The massive, lumbering construct caused catastrophic damage to coastal cities before it was driven back beneath the waves. In response, the South Korean government developed a mechanized armored drone unit, called MEKA, to protect urban environments in future engagements with the omnic threat.

The government's fears proved to be well founded, as a disturbing pattern of attacks emerged. Every few years, the monstrosity would rise from the sea to assault South Korea and its neighbors. The omnic learned from these encounters, often reconfiguring itself in a different form and appearing with new weapons and capabilities. Each incident ended in a stalemate, with the monstrosity defeated but not destroyed. To this day, South Korea continues to be threatened by the omnic.[1][2]

In the present day, South Korea has yet to recover from the damage the omnic has inflicted.[3]
