The year is 2099, almost thirty years after one of the most catastrophic events known to mankind. The United States, in an attempt to "enact world peace," deployed a handful of neutron bombs around the world. Neutron bombs, by their very nature, are effective killing weapons which wipe out large populations and leave much of the infrastructure intact. The world's population was reduced to less than one percent of what it had been (the bombs eradicated roughly seventy percent of the world population, and the fallout claimed much of the remaining thirty percent). Much of humanity remained centered around areas that had developed defenses against nuclear warfare. One such hub of humanity remains in South Korea.
After the horrendous bombings, the last vestiges of world governments convened, and a treaty was signed. The Seoul Treaty laid out the rules for a shattered society, outlining everything from conservation efforts, education, and protocol for future altercations (the very idea of war becoming so reprehensible that the term itself was banned). When the original plans were written, the architects were so thorough that there was even a contingency put in place should the gender gap in the population be even further enlarged as women seemed to die in greater numbers than men during the first phase of the fallout. However, with so much government oversight, the world was bound to suffer for it.
Within the city limits of Seoul, the effects of a dictatorial government were felt first and hardest. Some still have the audacity to call it a utopia, yet those who have tried to get married, have a child, buy a book, or get a job in the past fifteen years know that it's a red tape bureaucracy. The government controls every detail of every life, and those who live even a hair's breadth outside of their control are branded as criminals. Every individual either lives wishing for choice, or in fear of having made the wrong one.
As we near the 22nd century, there are reports from within the city that the last living Korean woman died while in childbirth. However, in lighter news, Maltech™ has just announced a new miracle drug that all male citizens over the age of 18 are to register to receive in order to innoculate themselves against major illness. On the other hand the decision of who receives it and who doesn't seems arbitrary, and no one knows what illnesses it actually protects against. Will you receive the injection?
