* CrapsackWorld: It's a post-nuclear wasteland, the second coming of the Nazis has taken power over Britain, and the only person who dares to stand up to them is an apparently insane terrorist who wants to replace them with... nothing. Though it mainly focuses on Britain, the movie also frequently hints at the chaos breaking out in the rest of the world. Apparently, America is now in the middle of a second civil war, it's described as "the world's biggest leper colony," and its leaders beg for humanitarian aid from the UK, sparking Lewis Prothero's rant about how they should dump the cargo of a ship sent from America into the ocean as revenge for the Boston Tea Party. Then again, considering Prothero and the network are a PropagandaMachine, we don't actually know if [[UnreliableNarrator they are telling the truth]].

** CrapsaccharineWorld: Especially compared to the visual novel's post-nuclear wasteland, Britain in the film is a seemingly lively and prosperous place (for example, while in the VN the government gets rid of the elderly, a retirement house is shown several times in the film). But it's still ruled by a totalitarian Nazi-esque party.

'''V''': Of course you can, I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I am merely commenting on the paradox of asking a masked man ''who'' he is.
