The world is a changed place. Nuclear war and radiation transformed not only the landscape and the people, but the very nature of society. No one was safe. The Authority had to step in.
The invention of Paxemocillin was a beacon of hope in a terrifying new world. It brought peace, it gave stability and ensured that any terrible consequences of what had come before were controlled. Pax was the future, now parents no longer had to fear the creatures their children might be. Everyone was normal. Everyone.
