Settled in 5 A.S., New Tokyo is the capitol of the Kusari Empire and, with nearly 11 billion people spread across various island groups, its most populous planet. Despite (or perhaps because of) this crowding, New Tokyo is a vibrant world with centuries of history and some of the most advanced technology in the colonies. Due to the lack of available land on which to farm and build, the Kusari have economised land use, and much of their technological advances have been geared towards constructing huge glittering skyscrapers and even entire "tower cities", packing as much as possible into as small a space as possible. To foreigners, Kusari architecture often feels cramped.
It is a vibrant world with centuries of history and some of the most advanced technology in Sirius, but it is not without conflict. Kusari culture is in a transitional state, with a relatively small feudal-style aristocracy leading an increasing number of citizens who are developing a stronger sense of individuality. Bureaucrats and corporations wrestle with the popular media and the younger generations over how best to handle the rapidly increasing changes in Kusari society.
