The Invasion of CracklandPART TWO
I. The death of Aaron ArvicherThe Grand Vizier of the Autonomous Monarchy of Crackland and itsAssociated Territories, once Stanford University professor Aaron Arvicher, wassomewhat relieved at age eighty-five when he was diagnosed by one of Crackland's few physicians as having an inoperable brain tumor. "Now I canfinally take off this ridiculous costume," he muttered with reference to thelong, flowing purple robe, embroidered with moons and stars, that he had
 
habitually worn since the inception of the monarchy, of which he was theprincipal architect.As the last days of his life drained away, Arvicher was being conveyed byelectronic train to a sort of hospice at the far end of the inhabited settlementsof the realm.

Also, the Fascist states of the mid-Twentieth Century had beenshort lived and driven out of existence within less than two decades. Anabsolute monarchy based on the House of Bourbon was far more lasting andwould inspire much more awe in the eyes of its subjects that a plumed coterieof pseudo-Nazis marching about to old Prussian war songs and brandishingside arms.
