Fracture is a third-person shooter video game released in 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. The game is set in a 22nd-century world ravaged by global warming; rising water levels had in 2145 split the United States into two landmasses, on either side of the former Mississippi basin. The two sides diverge culturally as well, with the Pacific seaboard conducting research into human genetic engineering, which the more conservative technologically-oriented Atlantic considers an abomination. In 2161 (not coincidentally the bicentary of the Civil War) the U.S. passes a law stripping citizenship from those genetically modified, prompting the West to secede under the name Pacifica. Immediately a war breaks out with the rump U.S., which renames itself the Atlantic Alliance. The flags of both entities could be seen in a trailer for the game at the official site.

Atlantic Alliance

The flag of Atlantic Alliance's is seemingly based on that of the U.S., with thirteen blue/white stripes in a blue-edged "box"; instead of a canton there is a wide red panel at the hoist, charged with a single large white star, shifted upwards

Not unlike the West Papua independentist flag.

Pacifica's flag is orange, with a white horizontal stripe at its midpoint and a vertical DNA helix in its center, voided blue.
