The zombies, that is.
America is a Zombocracy- a region ruled by zombies. These mindless brain-eaters are also known as government employees.
Cops, politicians, bureau-craps, and all the rest.
I said they are mindless, but that's not quite true. They share a hive mind driven by the instinct to devour anyone who isn't one of their own. And their disease seems contagious.
