Item #: SCP-4699

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4699 has been secluded from the public. Two guards are to patrol the perimeter of the house where SCP-4699 is located at all times, and are to administer amnestics to unauthorized civilians as appropriate with standard Foundation conduct. Since the recently conducted exploration missions, access into SCP-4699-1 is forbidden unless under O5 Command supervision, and SCP-4699 has been classified as Keter.

Description: SCP-4699 designates the front door of a suburban house located in the town of Great Kills, Kansas, USA. When a human enters SCP-4699, they will be transported to a parallel reality designated SCP-4699-A. Entering the house through the windows or back door exhibits no anomalous properties, and no anomalous properties are observed when exiting the house through SCP-4699.

SCP-4699-A is similar to baseline reality, with the exception that in 1891, all species of the clyde Anthophila (bee) went completely extinct via unknown means. Because of this, approximately ████ animal species also went extinct, and the current human population was been reduced to 1.1 billion.

Global infrastructure was drastically changed and three new world powers were created following the event, as well as more numerous, smaller communities and republics. The three largest nation-states are "The United Directorate of America", "Mpango wa Mungu" and "islandd", designated SCP-4699-1 through -3.


History

When all species of bee went extinct within SCP-4699-A, most of the population noticed almost immediately, and mass hysteria occurred. There were numerous reports of swarms of bees flying eastward, but it was unknown where they were attempting to go. Several wars were fought between every nation for the obtainment of any bee carcasses, presumed to be of use in any attempts at reviving the bee population. However, none of the participating nations were in possession of any carcasses. After approximately 20 years, it is theorized that all non self-pollinated crops in SCP-4699-A had been depleted, and no suitable pollinator to replace bees were found.

Crop production from farmers in the Americas and Afro-Eurasia have been reduced by 97% due to the lack of a pollinator. Some pollinators, such as butterflies, were able to pollinate some crops, but their impact was negligible in the global ecosphere at large. A large number of animal species went extinct due to the lack of food. The average human diet within SCP-4699-A consists of food capable of self-pollination, such as tomatoes, several types of pepper, and peanuts.

During this time, the current US President, shortly after the Spanish-American war, initiated a sudden troop surge within South America after an alliance with Canada, which was seen as a declaration of war. However, American troops overwhelmed the continent, and annexed the entirety of South America. Troops were deployed into other islands within the Pacific and Atlantic ocean, including Hawaii, and managed to claim several islands before being pushed back by SCP-4699-2 forces. During this time period, Japan closed all borders and went into complete isolation for unknown reasons.

The practice of Baratism grew exponentially throughout Africa and Europe. It is theorized that this is because of the formation of an alliance between 21 African countries in order to conquer Europe and Russia, despite the evident linguistic and cultural barriers. After approximately 15 years, SCP-4699-2 successfully conquered the entirety of Asia except for Japan, and are theorized to have claimed several parts of Oceania.

The nation renamed itself to Mpango wa Mungu1, and the United States of America officially renamed itself to The United Directorate of America. 50 years after this, Japan sent out an ambassador, covered in dried blood and dressed in animal skins, to Mpango wa Mungu, through whom they declared that their nation was now called "islandd." The ambassador then took out a spear and fatally stabbed themself in the abdomen.

Not much more is known about islandd's history.


ADDENDUM 112.3

The location that SCP-4699 leads to has been determined to be SCP-4699-A's version of Kansas, and is theorized to be the same location in relation to baseline reality. SCP-4699-A's version of Wichita, Kansas, the closest form of civilization near SCP-4699, is 63 kilometers west of the house.

The following is an exploration log of SCP-4699-A upon initial discovery by the Foundation.

It has been determined that SCP-4699-1 has a population density of 0.2 people per square kilometer. 80 percent of SCP-4699-1's citizens live in "New York District." The following is an interview between Dr. Macaulay and PoI-2531, a citizen of New York District.


ADDENDUM 214.1

15 days after SCP-4699's discovery, Site-8335 had been fully constructed within SCP-4699-A, under the guise of a scientific research center. More information can be found within Site-8335's site dossier.

Operation God's Plan has been initiated in order to establish a foothold within SCP-4699-2. A small outpost in the approximate location of SCP-4699-A's South Africa has been established for the purposes of studying SCP-4699-2 further. Following the outpost's establishment, an abandoned building was found nearby, nearly buried. Mobile Task Force Theta-95 ("Within Dark Places") was sent to explore the area.


ADDENDUM 554.8

On ██/██/████, a small port town was seen off the coast of SCP-4699-A's version of Brazil. It was revealed that the inhabitants of this port town were part of a rebellion created to overthrow SCP-4699-1. The following is an interview with the leader of the outpost.


ADDENDUM 764.9

Shortly after arriving within SCP-4699-A, the Foundation's activities have been tracked by SCP-4699-1's government. Citizens interviewed by the Foundation (which at time of writing is 97 individuals) have all been captured and presumably tortured. Because of this, O5 Command has ordered for Site-8335 to be rebuilt underneath SCP-4699's location in order to stay hidden.

The following email draft was discovered on a terminal in a library. It is theorized that the writer was interrupted before they were able to send it.

Amy,

Apologies for not sending this over a secure email server; don't think it'll be necessary anyways, but this is the best I can do with the time I have.

Let him know that most of the people that talked with them have been taken care of. However, a few of them have been moving to Mpango to evade punishment. I believe they are a part of the Wolf's Gang. One of their main bases of operation in Brazil was recently destroyed, so it's highly likely. Tell him that we need a HELLSCAPE code within the Atlantic ocean. That should be about 50 choppers, won't be an issue.

As for the Foundation, we still have not located their main base of operation. We believe that they occupy the same headquarters as the WG, if they are allied with each other. We still do not know if that is the case yet.

This is the biggest surge in suspicious activity we've had in some time now. I know they're up to something. What that something is, I don't know.

Sneezing in a flower garden,
Henry
