In the aftermaths of the storm, a war of survival emerged across the lands of Europa. It divided two kinds of people, the rich and the poor. The rich conquered the poor and commanded the lands of what the storm had left behind. They lived inside fortifications that protected them from the predictable violent weather and governed Federations with zero tolerance for crime of any kind. The Belanger federation made the poor beg at the heels of the rich and were treated as filth. They stole their children and policed them with fear.
