215 years ago, our crime rate was completely out of control. There were talks of revolt, revolution, rebellion, and a complete overthrow of the Emperial Government. The Franconia Emperial Government issued a full 12 hours of crime. The next year or two later, our crime rate went from 76% to 11%. Ever since then, the Purge has been a national holiday that keeps the peace, except for this year (because of war, terror, and corruption). This year's Purge will be good.
