A Shadow In the Sky
The Hectocracy is a bureaucratic organization set up in the 1980s to allow for a better path of communication between world leaders and the Decagon. It is made up of 1,000 regional “governors” who oversee conflicts within their regions. These are extremely powerful people who are pretty much the only avenue of recourse Earth’s population has with the Decagon. Needless to say, corruption runs rampant.
