WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD Edit
The great and catastrophic Fu-Yun earthquake of 1931 reshaped the entire earth as we know it. Shifting waters have revealed new yet ancient land masses, while submerging others. Continents have collided, and some have even broken and divided. What were once vast plains and dry deserts, are now narrow coastlines and wetlands.
In Aliena (formerly known as the United States), a new government called the Trans-Alinean Order (aka TAO) has risen to power, and controls nearly every aspect of its citizens lives; including birth, marriage, and death. While the TAO is not one-world government (yet), it dominates as a global super-power.
This new dystopian world is called Falterra.
