Muka whales

The military in the Rilao has, ever since Lao oil discovered an endless source of Muka oil, helped out occasionally to load barrels of oil on to ships, as a strengthening “warcry.” They would sing “muka, muka, muka.” And so too would the whales, as their own “warcry”.

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.
