Bollywood was the sleeping dragon of the last century. India and its client states had a greater English-speaking population than the USA, UK, and Dominion territories combined, and Bollywood was their honey and salt. The Mindfuck-event staged in Mumbai in 2078 was the equivalent of a popular, talented young actress so self-conscious that she allows herself to be mutilated by a gold-card cosmetic surgeon, pursuing an unnatural beauty. The resulting psychotropic shitstorm turned Bollywood into a dozen atomic-flaming spewing gojiras.

The Consensus of Africa was the first truly integrated multispecial supernational group to emerge in Africa, but it was troubled almost fromt he start. The Silver-Backed Kings’ militant societal construction for their humanzee troops resembled an atheistic version of the Taiping Rebellion, but the enforced peace of 2078 saw s…ignficant troubles for the transgenic apes. These were quite literaly a new people, full-formed without a cultural identity or history of their own, feral children raised in labs with the lingering remnants of tribal instincts diverted into military esprit de corps. In this void, the concept of of apETransgenic society eventually coalesced around a central text: Abraham Maslow’s “Eupsychian Management.”

Unlicensed testing of greytech on bonobo monkeys is believed to be responsible for the apperance of “chupacabre” populations in Mexico and the southwest United States. Some attribute their spread to labs improperly disposing of lab animals, while others believe that the hairless, psi-active creatures were deliberately established in colonies.

The Alien Genetic Testban Treaty was signed by every nation except the United States of America and the Republic of China; by 2081 the first “grey grafts” were available to America and Chinese markets, though the effects of these early an crude efforts were overly expensive compared to existing medical alternatives, and subjects were prone to cancer.

The Silver-Backed Kings and their Humanzee troops, allied with the New Republic of Liberia, managed to seize a substantial portion of the Gold and Ivory Coast before diplomatic entreaties and the threat of ancient, untested Russian psychotropic weapons resulted in the Treaty of Gallimont, fixing the borders of the Consensus of Africa.

The original progenitors of the Greys didn’t last for long, finally succumbing to human veneral disease in 2066. However, a team of Scots-Canadian researchers kept seven of their cell lines alive well into the 2070s, and is alleged to have used them in experiments involving the insemination of chimpanzees. This is more or less assumed to be the cause of the Great Ape War of ’79.
