Morn the dystopian country that exists far into the future, created to block the rest of the world because the other countries always engaged in war, constant war, just the opposite of my first novel: 2186 The Last Mission.

Think about how the world came to know one another better using the web.
Now, I have friends, at least chat friends, from all over the world. Maybe one
day, we will meet in person.
