Rilao Reality TV

The mysterious disappearance of people accused of crimes has stimulated paranoia amongst the lower class. For the elite, however, these people have been repurposed as entertainment, being cast away hidden under he growing macro-structures, and filmed as they battle their way out. The elite enjoy observing the stuggle, but neer acknowledge the inhumanity of the situation.

De-Execution Appeal (Rejected)

In attempts to deal with increasing anxiety, family members, colleagues, and friends deposit DNA samples in a bank in the event that somebody is “disappeared” in punishment for a crume. This deposit is used to regenerate a person in the event of their casting away.

Supplicants for a missing person must post their appeal publicly before the extra-governmental town hall hearing. The final judgement is also posted publicly so people know whether any regenerated citizen they come across is illegally alive.

Raymond Burns

Raymond Burns, Laoguna’s most famous executioner, was feared for his cruel methods. He would tie the victim to a chair in the middle of the Laoguna arena, and force them to watch all the episodes of the Marakihau Telenova with its original, 1980’s audio.

Bloody Nose Spells Death

“HELP PROTECT OUR CHILDREN!” reads the poster from the Child Protective Agency of Rilao. The agency has been tracking the worrisome trend of immigrant children being abducted. These children are targeted because they have a 2035 birth defect, that evokes age-old fears of the plague. Should a chronic bloody nose spell death for immigrant kids?

Mystic Genius Escapes Mysterious Island

A once crazed man, outcast for an extreme number of petty crimes, ranging around 10,000 minor stolen items, escapes Rilao on a small handmade craft. He manages to survive the wild currents to Baja California, where he, with his normal knowledge of everyday Rilaoan botany, is heralded as a mystic genius. This now mythic hero is regarded as the symbol of Rilao to the rest of the world.
