Product description

Product Description

It all started when Richard Milhous Nixon was executed after the Watergate scandal. Then things got worse.

The United States government collapsed as Washington DC was razed to the ground. The Army and municipal police organizations become one entity-- the Servicemen. Political parties began dividing into smaller and smaller organizations, until they resembled common street gangs, controlling territories and warring amongst themselves.

In an attempt to calm the chaos, a new system of government was installed: the New States of America, where the president is chosen by random lottery. The elected official serves for one full year and handles every executive decision alone-- although, more often than not, this privilege is a death sentence.

It was under the charge of the first new president, Clyde O'Brien, that the East and West coasts of America were nuked to oblivion and a wall encircling the interior states was erected.

O'Brien will be your Virgil through this American hellscape. Through his wearied eyes, you'll meet Riley Owen, proud member of the Dissent, pragmatic and short-tempered-- she's on a quest to throw a wrench in the gears of this new system. You'll meet Clay and follow his journey as he's inducted into the nihilistic partiers known as the SCUM. Then there's Reed and Xavier, two well-meaning Frontmen soldiers hoping to establish a little democratic order to the new process, who get the raw end of a deal with the merciless and mercantile army of the Just.

You'll also meet hippie cannibals of the unaffiliated and the religious zealots who are as fond of human sacrifice as they are for home baked cookies.

This is a dystopian thriller with flourishes of horror and biting satire in the tradition of a post-world America. The humor keeps pace with the breakneck speed of the plot, and before you see it coming, you'll come to understand that not everything is as it seems.

Hail to the chief.
