A note on Clones.

How are Gurkland clones? Human beings genetically created to have super powers of physical strength, energy and determination to endure long hours of work and few minutes of sleep(Hyperecharge). Their intelligence is lower than that of an earthly man to miss intellectual coscience, to have language skills that are predetermined by the biological IA. They have a programmed happiness and if you ask them: ''How are you?'', They will just say:'' I'm good, thank you ''. These are biological androids genetically set to only carry out the work assigned to them by companies. They don't have emotions, they are unable to cry and if you happen to meet some of the 2 million clones of Munilla in a way, they walk at a brisk pace for a working visit. Driven by their setting, they do not ask why something happens, and they just say ''so it is''.
