SOLARPUNK PLANET

finally, a healthy alternative to the dingy, disparaging worlds of dystopia.

Welcome to Luratia,
a peopled, cloudy, solar-powered world

on the upside, it has achieved

free wireless electricity

harvested in space on solar cell platforms and distributed wirelessly across the planet

advanced nanotech

high-def virtual-reality smartphones, pollution-eating concrete, space elevators, super-cheap solar cells, bionic ears, eyes and limbs

disease eradication
and longevity

achieved universally through generations of genetic screening and medical innovations in nanotechnology; pursued individually through bio-hacking

cooperation-based
communities

innovation and productivity have soared through collaborative associations and competition for excellence

on the downside, it struggles with

ubiquitous
surveillance

achieved by nanotechnologies ranging from undectable video devices built into architectural structures to small, insect-shaped video bots that can follow a selected target or hover in any penetrable GPS location

data wars and
nano warfare

traditional armed conflict has been replaced by the stealthy weaponry of data offensives, strategic system failures, GPS-guided bullets, and tiny assassination bots that can seek out and inject a person with deadly poison

elsewheres

the name ascribed to the growing number of people who suffer from virtual reality addiction, which affects nearly a quarter of the population and remains largely untreatable

slavery

the indigenous people of the corporate-owned continent of Egli are Luratia's last slave race, monitored and punished via subcutaneous surveillance devices

Luratia, my Solarpunk Planet
