Users rule over the afterlife, a purported existence in which the essential part of an individual's identity or their stream of consciousness continues to live after the death of their physical body. Users have the most authority and power in the realm, with every inhabitant expected to obey their laws and commands. They hold the power to make important decisions and enact their will on the afterlife and all of its denizens.
