With the harder of the Hard War, the GCP sends Jacob and the other slaves to serve into the Trade Cities transformed into military bases, as the last bastion of the type of life that they wanted to protect.
The people of the Trade Cities are like androids that have lost their minds completely. They ignore the soldiers and any other “bad” thing that happens. They have their own newspaper, printed for them that ignores the war and have lots of invented news.
The situation gets worse until the point that some soldiers lose their minds and attack the citizens to suicide later, convinced that they are in hell.
All the Capital Cities are considered Ruin Cities, even if they are inside of the inhabited zones. That means that the government considers them lost, and they will not send more resources or spent more electricity on them. Also, the government announce that will be blackouts on the less inhabited Trade Cities, like BI83. Producing many altercations and making that the city gets divided.
Thirty-five years after they appear for the first time, Clean Future appears with their army. They present resources to the citizens of the inhabited zones, buying the people, and putting them against the GCP and the government.
Ruin Cities goes on strike, stopping working on the Resources and Electrical Centrals, making the Trade Cities run out of electricity.
The Trade Cities’ citizens start a civil war, attacking the GCP soldiers and their facilities, hacking the androids, and making them fight against the soldiers.
All the slaves taking from the Underground Cities also go on strike, letting the world burn.
Clean Future attacks the Trade Cities and kill all that don’t surrender.
Clean Future sends all the rich people and the old politicians that survive the war to the Dark Zones as a punishment.
Clean Future moves the people from the Ruin Cities to improvised camps, where the survivors start to build from scratch their lives. They call these camps Outskirts.
Also, Clean Future starts to repatriate the OPS victims and put them into sanatoriums to deprogram them.
Clean Future asks some of the soldiers from the Underground Cities, like Jacob, to collect the names of the ones that lose their lives on the Red War to create a tribute.
