Summary
"Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that has laid waste to civilization and nature.

With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world's sparse resources for themselves.
