■ Shinyamato Empire

The Shinyamato Empire invoked a policy of “isolation” due to the global pandemic caused by the Chimera Virus. Though its influx of culture has decreased due to its continued isolation, the Shinyamato Empire has developed its own culture. The capital of the Shinyamato Empire is divided into three main districts. The First Citizens’ District, Second Citizens’ District, and Old District spread out radially from the Bureaucracy District in the center, where the major government agencies are located. Despite their policy of national isolation, they maintain minimal international relations and foreign culture has been adopted in the Bureaucracy and First Citizens’ District.

■ Secret Military Agency ACID

After the global pandemic caused by the Chimera Virus, the Secret Military Agency ACID was established by the government as a specialized agency to intercept the Chimera.

Asahi Shiramine belongs to the Special Military Force Valkyrie within the Secret Military Agency ACID, but there are various other units within the Agency.

In addition to intercepting the Chimeras that appear, the Agency also carries out civilian virus counter-measures, anti-Chimera weapon development, and Chimera ecology study.

There are a variety of facilities within the Secret Military Agency ACID. Each member of the Valkyrie unit has a private room in the dormitory where they carry out their daily lives.

Additionally, there are facilities for Chimera counter-measures like the control room and development room, as well as recovery and game facilities to care for your party members’ health and spirit.

The Chimera Virus disease rate among men and women is very high, and the higher the age, the higher the rate of infection.

The population of the world’s men has decreased, and for this reason the group members of the Secret Military Agency ACID that directly confront the Chimera mostly consist of young women.

Still, men are also present among the group. With protagonist Asahi Shiramine included, there are more than a few that stand on the front lines.
