What it is about...
Imagine a different reality, perhaps a parallel universe or another
dimension, where historical facts are somehow "mixed differently."
Welcome to the world of the Antique White House!
In this world, things are a little like they would be if antique
times had directly evolved into the 19th Century without passing
through the Middle Ages. Therefore, this society, its culture, and
morals fundamentally differ from ours. This bucolic world knows
almost no modern amenities. Transportation is handled with horses -
mounts and draft horses. The country's main industry is agriculture.
