Transcript[edit | edit source]

Mass privatization soon led to an economic boom, which in turn, led to subsequent tax breaks for augmented workers needed to help build the new infrastructure. There were a few voices of dissent: occasionally, non-augmented citizens accused the government of catering to corporate interests over national ones, or attempted to demonstrate against the fast-tracking of visas and work permits for foreign augmented workers. But for the most part, the Czech people embraced the reforms wholeheartedly.

So much so that by the mid-2020's Prague had a moderate population of Augs and had become a hub for many migrant workers traveling through to the EU nations and Eastern Europe.

No one could have predicted what would happen in 2027. With so many residents augmented, the Aug Incident struck the Republic particularly hard. Růžička herself was one of the victims of the tragic event, when the President's augmented bodyguard lost control and crashed her limousine into the waters of the Vltava river, where they both drowned.
