They are gone.
Doom Kingdom stood by us on the brink of annihilation, during the struggle of the July Revolution. They were there when our aid slot usage was less than ten percent, when only a handful of us were left abandoned to fight against a thousand nations. They gave us what we needed to survive, to grow, and to thrive.
And they gave us the gift of the Interstellar Program.
The Interstellar Program is now the last hope of mankind. It created an organized, central tech service that pays fair rates to new nations and tech producers, allowing us to grow strong, healthy nations. While most nations around the world slowly go inactive, faltering from existence... Interstellar has provided hope to dozens of nations, the economic backbone of one of the last civilizations in a dying world.
Doommerce is no more. Our friends are gone, and we are still surrounded by seas of barbarians. Nation after Nation has fallen, and we few remain to man the beleaguered walls.
But we have one thing they do not have.
