From the introduction:
The time: the distant space-future. Maybe man has spread into the stars. Maybe the galaxy is inhabited by empires of intelligent dinosaurs and mystical bog witches. Whatever you think is sweet, really.
The location: the fabulous kingdom of Space Monte Carlo, a beautiful and fantastic blank slate that we assure you has no relation to mundane countries of similar name.
The event: the Galactic Grand Ball, only the greatest space ball to be put on, where anyone who's anybody will be attending, an evening and night of dance and drink and perhaps even... love?
