=In the World=
In '''China''', the government is concerned with controlling has embraced and harnessing mutantsharnessed the utility of mutation. Mandatory registration has been a reality for decades now. Most mutantsare involved in mandatory Chinese military or civil service, including those who simply visit the country, disappear into and it's extremely unusual for China's private army, which has become feared world-wideborders to let mutants leave. China has leveraged their mutant power to colonize much is an economic and cultural powerhouse in part because of '''Africa''' its military and threatens to push further stilleconomic strength. Speculation suggests It's entirely speculation to say that China's position as the entire Chinese empire may be under world's greatest superpower is owed to its approach to its mutant control populace, but there is no denying that China's strength is bulwarked by this pointits mutant power.
'''India''' stands as an isolationist country made wealthy by American corporations. A conflict with China in 2027 left them as the only country that has so far withstood the empire's attempt to assimilate them, thanks to their own militant mutants and a sizable American investment of both money and mercenary mutant support.
In the '''Middle East''', most individuals view mutants as unnatural and hold a personal bias against them. Extreme violence against mutants is common, and many do not make it out of puberty. Middle Eastern governments don't usually bother with laws. Most mutants who hail from the Middle East either live in secret or immigrate to a more friendly location.
The continent of '''Africa''' has thrived over the past century under the continuing efforts of the African Union, whose position on mutation is more or less a "live and let live" position, though individual member nations differ widely in their treatment of the subject. Agrarian improvements, foreign aid, increased access to education and improved economic stability have been hallmarks of the past few decades.
'''Western Europe''' has a history of tolerance and even acceptance of mutants. This trend reversed rather dramatically, however, when several sizable cities in the '''Netherlands''' were completely decimated in 2023 by a gang of teenage mutants whose motivations were never discovered. While a few countries (most notably '''Sweden''' and '''Iceland''') still attempt to maintain cordial relations with mutantkind, the EU declared that mutants must be registered in order to travel freely between countries. This requirement has led to a quiet but persistent prejudice against mutants that has persisted even after the EU's dissolution in 2028.
'''India''' is an independent mutant military power in its own right. India's military stands in a consistent defensive posture against China on one side and Pakistan on the other. Armed conflict with China seems eventually to be inevitable; a few armed scuffles and/or "misunderstandings" have occurred with tensions rising since the 2020s. India supplements its own military with mutant-powered mercenary forces, heavily populated by American ex-patriates.
The '''Catholic Church''', headed by Pope Felix VI, a Jesuit from the Sudan, encourages love and acceptance of mutants as of all God's children, but meets considerable pushback for this position throughout the world.
