Puppeteer-manipulated experiment in human genetc engineering that set up lotteries for the right to breed. The random drawing guaranteed a flatlander the right to be a parent regardless of the state of his or her genes or social conduct. Only the luckiest flatlanders could breed, selecting successive generations of luckier humans.[1]
