Lets skip forward in time. Its the 21st of December this year, and ye olde alien armada of planet-sized ships makes its merry way into the solar system(somehow their prescence doesn't mess with the gravity, even with the dozen or so hypergiant star-sized motherships that stoppoed outside Pluto orbit so they could take advantage of the Maccas and 7-Eleven there...) Think of the solar system being flooded with Chobimaru's and Cathedral Terra's.
The message comes in: "This is our greeting, because this is a new dawn for Earth...we have come to ease the transition and to aid you in your journey to the stars. But, you are being held back by one nation, and for the Earth to move forwards, we shall remove that nation from your world."
Congratulations, that nation is YOURS.
-If you are American, the USA will be removed.
-If you are Israeli, Israel will be removed.
-If you are Australian, Australia will be removed.
-If you are Chinese, Afrikaan, Ethopian, Egyptian, Saudi, Khazakh, or Yugoslavian, same story.
They add, "Your people will benefit greatly, and this is not negotiable. The Earth has 72 hours to reorganize itself in lieu of >insert your country here< being removed, and replaced with a rapidly regenerating tropical forest which will help feed your people."
What do you do, now that in three days, your birthplace will be no more?
