Years before the Bots arrived, the Earth had seen many global human empires. The final empire before the Bots came was the Democracy. So called because of the system of government favoured within its realm. Once a young and proud nation it was the envy of all other nations of the earth. However like all human empires over time it became corrupt and decadent. Evil people had twisted and warped its proud traditions. Originally these evil people simply craved money and power but as evil begets more evil this warped into things much more insidious.
When the Bots came the earth was thrown into total chaos. Each nation, in turn, turned to the Democracy for protection. However instead of protection this evil cult simply extorted the other nations and made deals with the Deceivers for profit and to the other nation’s detriment. This was of little help when King Gills, ruler of Atlantica, rose from the sea at the Democracy’s very back door with a surprise attack on the Democracy. In that war a million people perished and it was only with the help of the Valiants was King Gills pushed back into the sea. Amidst the chaos that followed the Democracy people cried out for justice against leaders that preferred to fill their pockets rather than protect their citizens. Good men rose up to lead the people and this handful of good leaders the evil elite were put on trial and found guilty. The penalty – death.
Of those evil leaders that fled the purge only a few survived. Those that were prepared. They fled to tin pot nations and quickly overcame the populations there. Already rich beyond belief and equipped with ill-gotten Bot technology the remnants formed The Snake Corporation. This corporation brought forth a private army the likes of which have never been seen before. Rivalling the combined might of even the recovering Democracy itself.
Armed with the greatest scientists and perhaps the most advanced weaponry on earth, Snake Corp has begun building their own Bot army. While evil beyond reckoning some say that Snake Corp may be the only hope at freeing earth from Bots once and for all. However those, especially in the Democracy say that a tyrant, no matter how familiar, is still a tyrant and that a Bot free world is not a substitute for real freedom.
