It is 2076, and media rules every society in America. The political climate has grown and is now dominating society and the media. XOF News and NNC News advertisements are displayed everywhere.
Ryan Clarke is moving into his new house when his neighbor, Emily Miller, introduces herself and gives him cookies decorated to support NNC News and the mayoral candidate she supports, Richie.
His other neighbor, Scott Wilson, overhears Emily giving Ryan the cookies and comes over to yell at her and tell Ryan that XOF News is better than NNC News. Ryan looks uncomfortable, but does not know how to intervene.
Emily and Scott put Ryan on the spot and demand he chooses a side, he tells them he would rather not make a choice until he has more information and politely excuses himself, leaving them arguing on his porch.
As violence starts arising due to political conflicts and opposition, people grow weary and keep to themselves, staying at home and leaving the streets empty.
As the mayoral election approaches and the candidates begin campaigning, the neighborhood becomes more cluttered with signs supporting the candidates.
