Between 1982 and 2019, Man experienced an exponential growth in technology and scientific knowledge. Los Angeles county experienced an unprecedented growth in industry, commerce and residential. By 1990, this growth had drowned out old LA, Hollywood, the Valley and East Los Angeles. The City had become a neon metallic overcrowded world of replicants and people.
By 2010, LA resembled Hong Kong in the way the sprawl ate ever bit of land there were. The unfortunate side effect was that LA had now became an overcrowded, decayed and decrepit urban nightmare. People came here for opportunities in the new sciences of Genetic Engineering, Space Travel and off world colonization. What they found was a dystopia which contradicted itself. It had opportunities but the price was your soul.
