Blue developed controlled nuclear fusion in the 1930s, making the planet have inexhaustible energy sources. Transport and electromechanical technologies are well developed, but electronics is still in its early stages. In Geopolitics, the UK is the most powerful nation, followed by Russia. Thanks to an even distribution of energy, the Blues live in relative peace and quiet. In Architecture and Design, a traditional style prevails.
Tharelia, the planet of the Hyperons, is a world dependent on fossil energy, violent and with increasingly scarce natural resources. But Hard Sciences are very developed and electronic technology is extremely advanced. Its mechanical systems are inefficient and use obsolete technology, but miniaturized devices connected by wireless networks are seen everywhere.
Developments in theoretical physics led to the discovery of parallel Universes and hyperspace travel. The discovery of Blue, a habitable planet that dominates controlled nuclear fusion, was seen as an opportunity, and a phased invasion was planned and executed by a civil-military initiative called The Hyperon Project. To force the Blues to accept negotiations, the Hyperons always operate from the background, in political and cultural spheres.
