The Real World is, simply, our world. The Real World can be very hazardous for a plastic soldier. With a syndrome called Plastrification, the soldiers can't stay too long in the Real World. Neither the Tan Republic nor the Green Nation have successfully mapped the Real World, though they've tried. General Plastro has a great interest in ruling our world. Another reason why the Real World is hazardous to a plastic soldier's health is that there are many obstacles to overcome. Bugs and insects, dangerous objects, and deadly weather conditions can stop an army's progress in an instant.
