The people of Visryan, a global theocratic superpower, lead lives unencumbered by the fear of death. Vexrus, the deity ruling over them, offers a simple deal to his followers: serve the state in your earthly life, and be rewarded in the next. One's afterlife status can even be tracked online. When his friend and co-worker is executed for heresy and possessing banned materials, Marlow Wilson, a faithful bureaucrat working for the Department of Public Spending, investigates, hoping that exposing misconduct will yield afterlife credit. The banned materials, however, call his once-unwavering faith into question, forcing him to reevaluate many of the State institutions he once held sacred. Without god, many aspects of society that would normally be considered necessary to further the noble goal of helping the masses enter eternity, become sinister.
