When the earth was alone in the universe the Democracy was the greatest empire humanity had seen. It was a clandestine empire. Maintained by deception and ruthlessness. The ever present threat of nation ending weaponry kept the rest of the world under its yoke. Within that democratic empire good men sat alongside evil men in a constant power struggle for control.
The Democracy was not always corrupt and deceptive. Once it had been like a friendly big brother to the world. Every nation wanted to be like the Democracy and truth and prosperity sprang up where ever the Democracy ventured.
However slowly, over time, with the death of every good and upright man, an evil one took their place at the seat of power until the Democracy was corrupted and rotten. Then the bots came…and on their heels the surprise threat of King Gills emerging from the depths within the very planet upon which the Democracy claimed sovereignty. Thus erupted a multifaceted war between several factions many times more powerful than the Democracy at its best.
In these desperate times of war the corrupt and evil quickly became identified. The people demanded justice and many of the evil elite were forced to flee or were killed by the mobs in the chaos of war. This weeding of the garden allowed good upright, selfless men to flourish and they quickly set about the defence of the Democracy and the earth.
Unable to match the power or the technology of the enemy armies now fighting for the earth, the Democracy learned to excel at guerrilla warfare. Small teams of highly trained individuals struck from the shadows with crude but very effective weaponry then disappeared as quickly as they appeared leaving a battleground of smouldering wreckage where the enemy had once been. With these teams and an alliance with Valiant Bots, King Gills was pushed back into the ocean from whence he came and the Deceivers held in check.
Now with good men in power and King Gills seemingly defeated, the Democracy has managed to reclaim some of its former glory.
