In my universe the United States is very similar to present day. The (opposition party) won the presidency in 2017 (when the book takes place). Lots of Americans rose up to protest, and the movement became known as the Patriot Snowball because it kept growing larger and larger. Their flag had an angry polar bear on it. No one messes with a polar bear. Thus, if you were a Patriot, you were nicknamed a polar bear.
This book digs into a little of the origin of the movement, and the results. Liam is always digging for the truth, and the official word from government-sanctioned media is that the Patriot Snowball released the zombie plague on the world. A ridiculous claim, especially since Liam and Victoria have an inside line on other aspects of the plague and where it came from. But can they prove anything in a world where the internet is collapsed and the loudest speakers are controlled by the government?
And the zombies continue to intermingle. The “climbers” from Chicago have spread out far and wide, making it as far south as Cairo. The “dreamers” from Kansas City have reached the suburbs of St. Louis. And what’s so special about St. Louis zombies? We still don’t know…
