Two billion years from now the world was a very different place. Mankind had destroyed his environment and consequently himself a long time ago. Over millions of years the Earth healed its terrible wounds. Finally, the Earth settled down to a gentle rhythm and an elite species evolved. They were Emia Hopsons, not dissimilar to you and me. Sophisticated civilisations grew quickly but sadly military might reared its ugly head. Continent fought continent for hundreds of years until finally agreeing that they should leave each other alone before they totally destroyed themselves. Over time an uneasy peace cemented itself and they all got on with their own lives. For the continents governed in a kind, democratic manner this worked well. Our story concerns one that was run in a very different way, a hideous dictatorship ruled with an iron fist by one man consumed with self-interest and greed. All lived in fear of him!
