Our story takes place in a dystopian future. The year...2106. The United States Of America no longer exists. What now stands in it's place is a federation of city states under corporate control. National soveriegnty has given way to a form of corporate dictatorship. With the population now firmly divided along economic, racial and cultural lines, global megacorps now exercise cradle to grave population control...within their border zones.
State sponsored orphanages offer a path to a better life for lower class citizens by enrolling their childern into corporate sponsored training programs. This lottery based system is the only hope for most underclass citizens living in the smaller cities surrounding the major megalopolis, to gain citizenship within the borders of the global megacorp run metropolitan areas.
Unbenknownst to the general public is that these training programs are actually large scale metagene enhancement experiments for the creation of "enhanced" soldiers and assassins. Many of which are farmed out into various PMF's(Private Military Forces) or conscripted into service as agents and assassins to be utilized in various corporate espionage missions.
This is the tale of the exploits of several escapees from these top secret "training programs". While being labeled as terrorists by the media and hunted by the M.T.F (Metagene Task Force), they seek to expose the seedy underbelly of state sponsored orphan programs and helping others escape what is essentially corporate slavery.
This is the saga of TERRA SQUAD.
