From official release/information:

On August 15, 2047, India celebrates its centennial birthday yet it is no longer united as a nation as Gandhi achieved a hundred years earlier when he successfully led the peaceful resistance revolt against the British occupation. Instead, the subcontinent has broken into twelve semi-autonomous regions that compete economically, religiously, politically and militarily to control at a minimum the local state, but also with hopes of expansion into rival states. In this hodgepodge of bloodthirsty aggressive mini-nations, the residents of the city of Varanasi in the independent state of Bharat feel dichotomous towards the schism as they can worship their pantheon of Gods not the Mother Country.
