Golden StateBook - 2019
Laz Ratesic is a resident of The Golden State, a nation surrounded by high walls of compulsory truth-telling. Knowingly contradicting the truth - the Objectively So - is the greatest possible crime. Stopping those crimes, punishing them, is Laz's job. To monitor, verify, and enforce the Objectively So requires a veritable panopticon of surveillance, recording, and record-keeping. And when those in control of the truth twist it for nefarious means, the Speculators may be the only ones with the power to fight back. It is a shocking vision of our future that is one part "Minority Report" and one part "Chinatown."
