Cut-throat enterprise has imposed its will on the planet. Gone are functioning nation-states. Gone is working democracy. Gone is predictable climate. Raw power has blended with technologies of semiotic and cybernetic control to impose mega-corporate rule over the world. To survive, the last active commonwealth on earth must plan a desperate resistance.

In a world run and employed by a single mega corporation, whose reach extends into the very brains of the population, tapping into their fantasies and their base drives at the expense of everyone and everything around them. This technically controlled society is opposed only by the shrinking members of a free-thinking humanity.About the Author:
