Only 53 people had been chosen, and it was not nearly so egalitarian as to include one from each surviving country. Four were caucasian; twenty-two fell into the broad category of “Asian,” including refugees as disparate as Pakistanian and Bruneian; fifteen were from the remnants of the north and south American continents; twelve were from all over the continent of Africa.

The ideal of mixing and mashing cultures never really works as well as some hope. In time, various groups with even mildly similar backgrounds split up.

Those in the southern hemisphere were largely from the so-calle “Asian” countries, which in essence led to their Sundered-powered development of spices, oils, and other goods required to conttinue what lifestyle they eventually settled on.
