Iowa was the only state of the United States of America that retained an identity after the Change. The Republic had approximately the same boundaries as the state. Iowa is described as the most powerful country in post-Change North America, with over 2 and a half million people under its rule. Although nominally a Republic, the same family, the Heasleroads, have held power since the Change. Indeed, the title of ruler in Iowa is President for life. Rudi and his company are impressed by the prosperity of Iowa's farms and the "enormous" size of its cities.
