Jotunheim is one of the members of Nine Nations League and is homeland to abnormally giant Humans, because of the Ifing disaster, a nuclear accident that occurred on 16 April 1976, at the Ifing Nuclear Power Plant in Jotunheim near the river Ifing (then Jotunheim Socialist Republic, part of the Yutobanian Union). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in Strangereal history and is a level 6 event on the Nuclear Event Scale. The disaster occurred on 16 April 1976, at reactor number three at the Ifing plant, near the town of Ifingheim, during an authorized systems test. A sudden power output surge took place, and when an attempt was made at emergency shutdown, a more extreme spike in power output occurred which led to a reactor vessel rupture and a series of explosions. This event exposed the graphite moderator components of the reactor to air and they ignited; the resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive area, including Ifingheim. The plume drifted over large parts of western Verusea , and much of Jotunheim. Because of this, a year later Jotunheim left the Yutobanian Union and joined the Nine nations League and from that year onward Jotunheim has been locked in a war with Yutobania ever since.
