Shadows of Hong Kong
The year is 2050 and Hong Kong is a stable and prosperous port of call in a sea of chaos, warfare, and political turmoil. The Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone is a land of contradictions – it is one of the most successful centers of business in the Sixth World, and it is home to one of the world’s most dangerous sprawl sites. A land of bright lights, gleaming towers, and restless spirits where life is cheap and everything is for sale.
There are two main governing bodies in Hong Kong: the Board of Governors and the Executive Council. The Executive Council is effectively both the legislative and executive branches of Hong Kong Government. It is made up of eight Hong Kong citizens chosen to serve on the Council by the Board of Governors for eight year terms. Council members cannot be elected to consecutive terms. Every two years, two new slots open up on the Council and the Board of Governors replaces them in a closed door session. Every year the Council votes one member to be Chairman of the Council. There is no limit to how often a Councilmember can be the Chairman during his term. It is the Chairman’s job to set the Council’s agenda. Laws presented to the council are passed by a six vote majority.
The city is overrun by refugees from conflicts around asia, so nobody know how many people currently live in hong kong. All the AAA corporation is present in the city as is alot of other companies. Large areas in the city is controlled by corporations. The mix of refugees, local citizens and international companies give hong kong a multi cultural feel. Almost all nationalities are found in the city.
