It is 2025 and Russia is in turmoil. Its major oil and gas pipelines have been blown up by terrorists. A deadly, GMO-based disease has hit most of its grain crops, leading to famine. And, debilitating economic sanctions by the West are also contributing to chaos and mass protests on the streets.
Desperation is all around, leading to the rise of a new populist and nationalist socialist party, promising law and order and a new Russian empire to make Russia great again.
In response, top Kremlin insiders launch the Committe: a top secret initiative that will oversee cyber-warfare, terrorism and blackmail against the West, all in the pursuit of restoring prosperity. The mission, is called "Operation Golden Bear".
