The year 10,000 AD is a far future in which the Earth is a post-apocalyptic wasteland, with the Humans having reverted to a society reminiscent to pre-dynastic Egypt. Pyramids have been built in remembrance of their ancestors.
A centuries-long war between Russia, America, Egypt, and Algeria lasting from February 2, 4202 AD to December 31, 7139 AD has left most cities in ruins. Medium-scale proto-cities have been built, even one known as Amennet.
Amennet is located in the Rub al-Khali, the "Empty Quarter", of what was once Saudi Arabia.
