In 1995, Italy annihilates Libya, which destroys Israel. Africa bombs Germany, which in turn attacks France. Luxembourg conquers England. Sweden, Monte Carlo and Switzerland immolate themselves. The Russians decide to liquidate the Americans, who unleash their nuclear fleet, leaving only two continents on the verge of World War IV. In the north, a mutated strain of males in America and Russia merge, forming the USSSR, in the south. All that is left of womankind retreat to their territory of Vaginia. Both factions are deficient in the standard number of limbs and sexual characteristics: the men, who have had their behinds blown off, are gay Hitler clones, and the women have become multibreasted, ballerina warriors. The two armies are soon at odds with each other. The men perfect their most destructive weapon yet and call it the 'Big Piece', while the women build 'Big Mama', a superbomb capable of destroying the solar system. The Council of the Universe, fearing for everyone's safety, appoints our hero, Fred, a simple garbageman of the sky as "Mister Good Offices" to diplomatically calm the situation down. Fred meets with the Commander in Chief of the USSSR and promptly falls in love with his young mistress, Liberty, whom he abducts to Vaginia. He meets the "Big Supreme" of the Vaginians, Una, who listens distractedly to Fred's arguments for peace, offering him a more intimate and immediate approach. Fred is unable to withstand her advances. With no hope for peace and mad with rage at the idea of being separated from Liberty, he releases the Fourth World War. Liberty is taken on board the penile 'Big Piece' which starts to rise as Fred hurries to her rescue. He manages to get on board and escape with her to the safety of a tropical island. While the two armies fraternize, the two appropriately shaped superbombs collide and explode in a cosmic orgasm. Depsite the general devastation, planetary collisions and so on, due to the divine intervention by a taken-aback God, Fred and Liberty miraculously survive. 1995 (MCMXCV in Roman) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
