Two and a half centuries in the future, the United States no longer exists. Daily life for the residents of New England resembles nothing their recent ancestors might have imagined. Physically and politically isolated, citizens of the new sovereign state live in a single, sprawling, highly-segregated urban landscape. Centuries old social divisions have now consolidated and dramatically shape where people live, how people work, and most importantly what people consume. Once a harmless idiom, “you are what you eat”, is now an incontrovertible doctrine–the key to good health, great influence, and immeasurable power.

After Walker Wilson–infamous professional football player and Bītlogik’s biggest client–commits a devastating gustatory mishap, Civet must scramble to save her reputation and her firm.
