Culture and Society
Humans live in a handful of cities, or occasionally survive on their own in the wilderness. Factories are shutdown, as is all major industry. Due to the vastly changed landscape; living outside the cities, or in fortified safe havens; is extremely dangerous for humans. Gone are any sort of jobs that aren’t directly linked to the survival and well-being of people. Those who formerly held such jobs are forced to learn some sort of new trade, or be ostracized from society.
