It's the year 2019. Times are tough, and around the globe world leaders are scrambling to maintain control, and seem utterly powerless to effect change. They no longer represent their countries, or their people, but have become puppets and mouthpieces for the central banks and their transnational corporate overlords. With vast financial resources and aggressive lobbying, they have bought, paid for, and now own the politicians. The world economy is on the brink of collapse. Crime is rampant. Looting and arson is widespread, and random acts of violence have seen a record surge in numbers. Everyone is armed. Security is tight and on hair-trigger alert. Insurrection is in the air.
