It is the year 2014. Over the past five years the number of sightings of UFOs, or Unidentified Flying Objects, has increased drmatically. Recently, tales of alien abductions of up to 20 or more people at once have caused even the most skeptical among us to admit that something strange is going on. These events have caused massive public hysteria, with people rioting in the streets demanding that their governments do something to stop the alien threat.
Several organizations attempted to combat the aliens on their own. The United States and Canadian NORAD shot down a few UFOs, however their operations were severely hampered when their headquarters was destroyed by the alien menace. (List more organizations here). Soon after these efforts it was realized that international cooperation was needed to stop the aliens.
During a UN session in 2012, the majority of countries agreed that the alien menace needed to be stopped, however few stepped up to the plate due to fear of alien reprisals. Early in the year of 2013, representatives from the world's most economically powerful countries secretly convened in Geneva in order to find a solution to this problem. During the rest of the year, the "council of funding nations" as they would come to be known decided to create an organization called x-corps, or the xenocide-corps, and the entire operation was to be called "project xenocide". The council figured out who would lead the organization, how much the organization would be funded, and how much authority it would have.
Their final decision was that you would be the leader of the x-corps, that each country in the council would decide how much money to contribute to project xenocide each month each month, and that the x-corps would have the authority to recruit anyone on the planet, send missions to anywhere on the planet, and build bases in any place on the planet.
After these decisions were reached, the UN was told that "a solution to the alien problem has been found" and nothing more. To this day, the day when x-corps begins operations, no-one but the leaders of the funding nations, a handful of members of those governments, and those recruited into x-corps (including you), know more than what the UN was told. And many of those people know little more.
EDIT: By the way I need some ideas for organizations, or names of currently existent organizations, to list here.
