After the fall of separate nations during WWIII, the world has found its utopia under the unified Provincial Government. The year is 2102 and peace is all most people know. The world is simple, perfect; Racism, gone; Wars, all over.

If only we knew it'd be our demise... and the government, the force meant to protect us, cared nothing about our lives.
