Empathy Over Altruism
The Desert Rats believe the future should not be built on the past, especially not on a failed society. Their radical view of the old world drives them to explore, seek new survival tools, and acquire knowledge for technological advancement.
Although they lack scientific knowledge, they are masters of survival, navigation, creativity, strategy, and logistics. A healthy oral tradition for communication keeps the Desert Rats highly coordinated with each other.
Many Desert Rats settlements exist, and they all operate under the same core rules and laws. The central government encourages a sense of growth and preservation when and where it is needed. Although they tend to participate in piracy and smuggling for certain goods and commodities, many are renowned traders, explorers, and respected mediators.
