The citizens of this crazy subterranean world where the concepts of 'up' and 'down' are as twisted and perverted as those of 'right' and 'wrong' are accustomed to creeping about like insects on walls that are also floors, and floors that are also ceilings, thanks to surfaces being coated in a special magnetic substance. Termight is ruled by Grand Master Torquemada and his Terminators, a cadre of knights committed to the complete extermination of all 'impure' alien life. Its name perfectly encapsulates the Terminators' world view: humans are indistinguishable drones destined for subjugation, and force is the only good.
Conformity is ensured by the Thought Police, equipped with thought-detector vans, and by purity meters in each apartment which register any alien life-form. Dissidents are sent to the vapourisation vats. The population of Termight are subjected to relentless propaganda and lead fearful, stunted lives, always aware of Torquemada's supreme rule: Be pure! Be vigilant! Behave!
When Purity Brown became President of Termight, she renamed it Terra.
