Following the death of a long-lost uncle, Lydia suddenly discovered she was not from a common family but was in fact the last remaining descendant of a noble (and rich) family from Poldachie-Golgovine that had been exiled to Clint City. So on becoming a countess, Lydia has had to learn all the dos and don’ts of high society. And just as her efforts were beginning to bear fruit, what does she go and do but fall madly in love with Randal, a young man from the ghetto. Oh, the life of a countess is never an easy one!
As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.
