    Sheila is certain America's dynasties will destroy the country, but her nascent group of academic colleagues has failed to persuade the government and the people of the need for change. These revolutionaries call themselves Prime Heuristic. Their influence on government is small compared to that of powerful families like the houses of Daco, Harrington, Maddox, and Tafuri. Sheila and her colleagues monitor the fight for economic dominance between these four houses and America's other dynasties.

    In 2012, no one saw Victor Daco coming. In 2024, he lobbied Congress to turn America's 13 most powerful conglomerates into sovereign regional states, transforming the control that corporations had held for decades over the US government into a formal nobility. Once the bill was signed into law, it became known as the New Rule. As the wealthiest man in the country, Victor became the most powerful patriarch.
