Mind you, I think that the idea they were going for could have been interesting, they simply went too far with it and turned the setting from a dystopia to a parody.Nope. The writer mostly did it ad a joke expecting the editor to veto it. They didn't.
Note this was right near the end of TSR pre WotC buyout. Last Sea was one of the last products made.
Conceptually it's kind of fine a last fragment of the Green Age.
