After World War III, the remains of the United States are formed into the country of Illéa. Illéa depends on a numerical caste system and a set of rules in order to maintain their society. Ranks in the caste system range anywhere from an Eight (laborers) to Ones (the royal family). Additionally, there are a few rules in place. There are curfew hours, heavy sentences for theft and other crimes (regardless of the motivation), and that there is no sex until marriage by law.
