Idd is a technocratic nation oft considered by many as an individualist utopia. The denizens of Idd believe in the power of the individual, and strive endlessly to cultivate their bodies and minds in order to achieve success. A vast number of Idd's most successful and influential figures are highly skilled scientific minds or psionically capable individuals. More often than not, to reach the absolute top, one needs to be both. Unfortunately for those who are born infirm or less blessed with natural talent, Idd is also highly caste-driven, with varying levels of citizenship that determine which venues of learning and enterprize any given individual has access to. Meritocratic to a fault, those that have ability will be welcomed and supported, regardless of origins. And those that do not rarely set foot in one of Idd's many gated cities.
In order to properly bring out the full capabilities of their elites on the battlefield, the ego plate was devised. Mixing the basic defensive qualities of lightweight plate-based body armor with a network of psicrystal nodes along the body's acupoints, the ego plate allows its wearer to channel its psionic focus into short-term bursts of physical power.
