Deep in the bayou of Louisiana a young boy, Sam-Tom-Bill (named so because his three grandfathers threatened to feed him to the gators unless he shared each of their names) fished for guppies in the village swamp. He wanted to add some flavor to his mama’s fermented gumbo pizza. Little did he know, the swamp guppies fed on the by-product of PollutionEx Oil’s crude waste, transforming them into mutant zombie guppies. Nonetheless, Sam-Tom-Bill ate his guppie side dish and delighted in every bite. As the mutant guppies made a stew in his stomach the disease quickly spread through his veins, mutating his blood cells and transforming him into a flesh acting human zombie. It took only a matter of weeks for the entire village to become infected and only three months for the state of Louisiana to be populated by the living dead. In an attempt to save themselves, the western United States dammed the Mississippi river, causing a great sea to divide east and west. But because of the unique guppie-human zombie mutation, the zombies easily swam the divide. By the end of the year the entire lower forty-eight became a wasteland of fermenting guppie-human zombies and Alaska and Hawaii began anew as the United, yet separated by thousands of miles of ocean, Territories of the Western Hemisphere.
