* LibertariansInSpace: A central plot element, with Libertarian concepts such as asset-based currencies, contract resolution, and individual accomplishment being the key to dynamic, thriving societies, as opposed to Luna's [[DemocracyIsBad increasingly-bureaucratic democracy]] or the [[MegaCorp Mercorps]] that rule Earth, Mars and the Jovian satellites - ''badly''. Each statist society is noted to have a large underclass - Beltapes on Luna, poor people on the Jovian moons. Mars has android ''slaves'', and Earth has '''genetically engineered''' entire subraces in a FantasticCasteSystem; can't have an upper class without a lower class.

* FantasticCasteSystem: Terrans have enforced one with [[http://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=50 cruel genetic engineering]]. The upper class "executives" are engineered to look good and have pheromones that make you want to trust and respect them. The lowest class "associates" are engineered to be diminutive in body and spirit and to have pheromones that make them repellent and hateful ''even to themselves''. There are also specialist castes in between that we haven't encountered.
