The story follows human history from 2058 to 2505, during which overpopulation leads to the supposed elimination of all nations and the construction of huge city towers to hold the world’s population under the United Nations, now known as The Human Centre, which is a world government. All people are adequately fed, clothed, and housed, but because nations didn’t really disappear, nuclear war breaks out with Israel eliminating the entire population of Iran and New Arabia destroying Haifa in retaliation. This is then followed by the creation of one world religion, SHINRAH, which, while saying it has eliminated government becomes an all-powerful government.
