Comments:

Earth has spawned three colonies on distant planets: Columbia (founded by Americans), Novaya Ruthenya (founded by Russians), and New Gallia (founded by the French). The motherworld has degenerated into a powerless planet of poets, musicians, and scientists, completely unable to defend itself from the impending invasion by the ruthless Hrossai. But one ancient skill the Earthmen have not lost is that of intrigue, and therein lies their hope.
