The Imperial Botanists


They have always existed, but the more humanity forgot the multiplication table, the more they provoked hatred, and so by the end of the year 10,000 AE (note — after Empress), they were banished. But due to the underfunding of the project «Zero tolerance to botanists», they were banished closer — to Mars. There botanists had nothing to do how to create mega-factories. So for 1.5 millennia, Mars turned into one giant mega-factory, which was called Forge because of unclear reason of the hanging anvils everywhere. Botanists were rehabilitated by the Empress only when they managed to create robots-rapists, which were used in the defeat of the rebels.
