In 2050, the world has been at peace in most areas of historic and ongoing conflict for about 30 years. In 2015 all the most powerful nations of the world decided to reduce their exposure to increasing numbers of costly retirees by making military service compulsory but only for those between the ages of 60 and 65. Medical technology had already made agile longevity a fact of life and battle field exposure was expected to reduce the increasing aged population of men and women. However, older people did not want to fight and so for the most part war in the world ended.
