History and background[edit]

The entire population live in sprawling factory cities that are entirely concerned with chemical production and mining. Almost all of Drogheda's production goes to industrialized Likhukam (Dagudashaag 2204). The world is run by an oppressive bureaucracy that stifles any opposition to its regime. There is an active but equally oppressive resistance movement that periodically commits acts of terrorism. The government has a very active anti-terrorist policy and thoroughly searches all incoming vessels.
