from the back of the book:
Now that The Computer is gone, more Secret Societies than we want to think about are fighting over the pieces of Alpha Complex. All that keeps them from winning is their mutual loathing and suspicion.
Now comes a leader who could unite all the Societies and lead Alpha Complex to a grand new future. But if that happened, we wouldn´t be able to do any more Paranoia adventures, would we? So the leader is quickly vaporized and - that´s right - the innocent troubleshooters take the blame!
