September 7,9002 the entire earth is in ruin, divested by  worldwide germ warfare the population had decreased 80% in thirty years divesting the world economy and nearly wiping out the human race.  A super germ was created in a laboratory in ludbeck Germany, and  a  attempt to create a vaccine infected the ones who escaped the initial infection. The remaining population would slowly decrease due to famine and illness related to flesh eating ulcer, The few sciences left on the planet some covered in flesh eating ulcers where sent to the kiritimami island in the central pacific to come up with a cure. The rest of the population was huddle together deep in the diamond mind of south Africa, A small group choose to live above ground and try to restore the earth to its former glory. Each group survived on a diet of consisting mainly of rats and purified water, the rats where bread and raised like chicken, they survived the infection and would serve as the new world currency as well as the main food source. The three groups began to grow farther apart in there beliefs as the germ began to decrease in strength around the planet. The people  living in diamond minds would remain underground even after the germ had entirely subsided, they had become self sufficient as there numbers grew they carved out the earths underground creating an elaborate tunnels system that went deep into the earths crust and  covered the entire continent, they where known as the undica people. The surface dwelling people thought of themselves as the true only true human beings on the planet, they had began restoring new York and California, the newly formed government had banned any communication with the undica people after they choose to remain underground. The surface dwelling people called them selves the newmens symbolizing the new human beings, they created a warrior like society that lived primitively, they belived that a messiah like figure would be born to a woman from the newman people and would lead them out of the darkness. The sciences had long ago found a cure but had no intentions of sharing it with the undica or the newmans they had hoped that they would die out so they could create a society of geniuses, they considered the newmans beneath them and cared even less for the undica people. The Geniusians  as  they  were called  developed a society dedicated to science, they recreated dinosaurs out fossils and speed up the evolution of single cell organism leading to the creation certain animals. The island they inhabited was small but the geniusians lived a futuristic life on the island of kiritimami.
