The Republic is set outside the titular Republic, and to play, players must create characters who are not citizens. For a person to be a citizen, they must be of the dominant groups (which based on our context, would be male / white / cisgender / straight / able-bodied); therefore, players must create characters who do not fit within one or more of these categories. As as a result, players are encouraged to play characters who are queer, as well as other minorities.
