Rapture & Ruin
X-Co City is a monumentally large city located in the dry highlands of Mexico. Today it serves as the trade and cultural center of the American continents, boasting their slogan, “All Roads Lead to X-Co.” The city is governed by a theocratic-oligarchic group who call themselves Los Reyos del Sol, who labor tirelessly to keep their city maintained and ordered. To achieve this Los Reyos del Sol have established a law of tandem hospitality, requiring the densely populated residential zones to accommodate legitimate merchants in times of heavy traffic – up to and including housing them in the people’s own homes if necessary. This has led to the people begrudgingly calling their city “Extra-Company City.” The Repentant to Jehovah has only recently arrived in X-Co City but already supports the people’s objection to the tandem hospitality law, leading to frequent disputes between the two religious groups. The citizens are slowly converting to Repentance, and some extremists even murmur hope for The Abolition of The Ten to arrive and topple their government.
