Erebos is an organisation that kidnaps children and experiments on them to produce psionic abilities. Characters are a group of ‘positives’–kids who have manifested abnormal abilities–making an escape from the Erebos facility.
Make America Great Again: the Setting
I’m calling it Dystopian Tomorrow, the broad strokes are very much like they are in our world: geopolitical boundaries, technology, advertising, all pretty much the same. There are some key differences. The US has a president for life, and the judicial branch has been absorbed into the executive. Corporate responsibility is a thing of the past.
Freedom of speech is guaranteed but broadcast and publishing licenses are dependent on presidential favour. ‘Alternative facts’ has come to mean the lies the government tells us, and the ones we tell tell the government, while ‘fake news’ has come to mean honest and sincere truth.
Prisons are privatized, police forces are skeleton crews whose response time and investigative enthusiasm are closely correlated to property values. Corporations and gated communities have private security forces which enforce peace and community standards, with all the pesky investigation of crimes committed by subscribers.
The golden age of the internet is gone, replaced by subscription services that don’t share content. Infrastructure is crumbling.
“Religious Freedom” means that bigotry is protected by law. (And, oh yeah, Islam has been declared a ‘false relgion’).
