It's been twenty years and two election cycles since Information, a powerful search engine monopoly, pioneered the switch from warring nation-states to global micro-democracy. The corporate coalition party Heritage has won the last two elections. With another election on the horizon, the Supermajority is in tight contention, and everything's on the line.

With power comes corruption. For Ken, this is his chance to do right by the idealistic Policy1st party and get a steady job in the big leagues. For Domaine, the election represents another staging ground in his ongoing struggle against the pax democratica. For Mishima, a dangerous Information operative, the whole situation is a puzzle: how do you keep the wheels running on the biggest political experiment of all time, when so many have so much to gain?

I wanted to read this because the description of it sounds fascinating, and there are some elements that are interesting to ponder over. But the character development is basically nonexistent and the plot is complicated in a way that makes it hard to stick with because you don’t really know/understand the people involved - and thus don’t really care. No offense to the author, who seems like a wonderful human and a deep thinker, but this is not good writing for a novel.
