Set in a world where nations still clash¸ civilization has crawled back to its pre-war levels¸ and then beyond. The world is dominated by the Third French Empire¸ which maintains a shaky peace among its jealous rivals.. Earth's hundred nations have colonies among the stars. First contact happened long ago¸ and commerce with aliens in now commonplace.
