The news report Oceania has captured Africa in Three perpetually warring totalitarian super-states control the world: The perpetual war is fought for control of the "disputed area" lying "between the frontiers of the super-states", which forms "a rough parallelogram with its corners at TangierBrazzavilleDarwin and Hong Kong ",  and Northern Africa, the Middle East, India and Indonesia are where the superstates capture and use slave labour.
Fighting also takes place between Eurasia and Eastasia in ManchuriaMongolia and Central Asia, and all three powers battle one another over various Atlantic and Pacific islands.
The only references to the exterior world for the Oceanian citizenry the Outer Party and the Proles are Ministry of Truth maps and propaganda to ensure their belief in "the war". Eurasia was formed when the Soviet Union conquered Continental Europe, creating a single state stretching from Portugal to the Bering Strait.
Eurasia does not include the British Isles because the United States annexed them along with the rest of the British Empire and Latin America, thus establishing Oceania and gaining control over a quarter of the planet. Eastasiathe last superstate established, emerged only after "a decade of confused fighting".
It includes the Asian lands conquered by China and Japan. The annexation of Britain occurred about the same time as the atomic war that provoked civil war, but who fought whom in the war is left unclear. Nuclear weapons fell on Britain; an atomic bombing of Colchester is referenced in the text.

Perpetual war Inthere is a perpetual war between Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia, the superstates that emerged from the global atomic war.
The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, by Emmanuel Goldstein, explains that each state is so strong it cannot be defeated, even with the combined forces of two superstates, despite changing alliances.
To hide such contradictions, history is rewritten to explain that the new alliance always was so; the populaces are accustomed to doublethink and accept it. The war is not fought in Oceanian, Eurasian or Eastasian territory but in the Arctic wastes and in a disputed zone comprising the sea and land from Tangiers Northern Africa to Darwin Australia.
The public are blind to the change; in mid-sentence, an orator changes the name of the enemy from "Eurasia" to "Eastasia" without pause.
When the public are enraged at noticing that the wrong flags and posters are displayed, they tear them down; the Party later claims to have captured Africa. By using up most of the produced objects like boots and rations, the proles are kept poor and uneducated and will neither realise what the government is doing nor rebel.
