Annotation

A plague has killed many people and animals, and Australia and New Zealand (now Auzealand) have completely cut themselves off from the rest of the world to avoid the spread of the plague. The authoritarian government controlling science is using genetic engineering using blood from those who were immune to the plague to create a cow (Blossom) that would give milk carrying the antibodies. Auzealand is presented in eutopian terms; the rest of the world is presented as a dystopia.
