Centuries of uncontrolled urban and demographic expansion have created labyrinthine zettapoles where the great capitals of the world once stood. The names of these ancient cities have long been forgotten. The uniformisation of habitats and cultures, the systematic destruction of the environment have erased geographical distinctions and it is now impossible to know to which country these structures once belonged. France, New York, Asia… Words that no longer mean anything.
Zettapoles stretch boundlessly, surrounded by nothing but plains of black ashes and stagnant seas.
