The world our modern society has created depends heavily on energy. Energy is imported from all over the world or some nations are lucky enough to have their own supply. In Vividred operation this problem is solved with one energy hub that distributes to all other nations around the globe.
Funny enough this has caused no major conflict with other nations. That’s a curious development, because the situation remains in present society, that nations look for independent energy supplies. Being dependant on other countries to maintain the flow of energy isn’t the preferred method governments want to use.
Being reliant on other countries, means great political risks. Countries cannot easily interfere in foreign affairs. The need for energy comes before the moral issues that can be apparent in the concerning area. Countries where human rights are being ignored, but have energy resources, will be tolerated. Letting them go would mean devastating losses in energy supply.
On the other hand, countries with many resources can keep buyers in a stranglehold. Forcing them to comply to certain political decisions. Like mentioned before, buyers can be forced to stay silent about internal affairs in the concerning nation. Having complete control over energy supply, gives great power.
In the world of Vividred, Japan is the distributor for all the world. This is interesting, as the supply comes from an area that is unpredictable because of tectonic activity. Also is it remarkable that the technique to generate large amounts of energy, isn’t used in other nations. Somewhere along the way other nations must have complied to terms that give them a steady supply of energy. Giving in to many risks that can threaten the stability of their country.
It is utopian to think that no country has attempted to invade Japan, to steal the knowledge to recreate the facility, to generate great amounts of energy. It is also remarkable that there is only one supplier. One supplier that feeds the world with energy.
