The dust is still settling in America after the Second Civil War. The country (what's left of it) is a fractured, tribal mess of ethnic enclaves, fundamentalist evangelical cults, and radical neo-Bolshevik or fascist regimes. The Patriot Party rules a patchwork of military districts across 43 remaining states as the American overseas empire slowly crumbles. Ruby Monroe, a visionary scientist and CEO, runs a neurotech firm in New York City. Her breakthroughs are more than just revolutionary -- they might very well be the transhumanist future of human civilization. Her vision of humankind transcends all prior ideologies, and it does not take long for foreign agents to make her an offer that could materialize all of her aims. Meanwhile, Lt. George Novak (an intel analyst and head of a Pentagon “kill team”) is tasked with hunting down the agents and trolls (foreign and domestic) who crippled America twenty years earlier and effectively shattered the West into tribal factions. When Novak's team tracks down a major fugitive, simmering tensions come to a boil, unleashing forces that none of the players involved fully understand.
