Introduction and Background

You are a reject. Although the USSR is a modern, tolerant state you are unacceptable because of your unsanctioned views, sexuality, race, appearance or taste in music. Or perhaps you just pissed off someone powerful.

So you are now a conscript serving at base 58. If there is a kind, warm place in this vast country, this is the place it is furthest from. It is a cold, isolated, dilapidated, ancient shithole of a base for which there seems no sane reason. There is nothing to guard here, nothing but frozen bogs for miles. So here you squat with all the other perverts, traitors and misfits, waiting for you time to be over, in one way or another.
