How is there an election coming up in CCSA? Isn't a CEO appointed by a Board of Directors, which is in turn appointed essentially by its own self in a sham "election" where voting power is determined by number of shares owned plus whatever clauses might exist in the articles of incorporation to give outsized numbers of votes to certain individuals or small groups?

And then there is the unnerving chill of familiarity with the confederate context of the scenario itself; none of this is beyond belief at this point in time.
Make a left on Righteous Pathway, a right at The Road Least traveled, up Rocky Road Terrace to the corner of Death Shadow Valley Road, then take the Schlossen Cutoff.
