Alibaba is confronted by the incredible rich change that has taken over Ballbadd. The country has been remade over in the image of the Kou empire. As Ambassador Alibaba checks in to his estate and requests to be left alone to meet up with the last leaders of the Fog Troupe. They catch up and we get humor but Hassan tells Alibaba about the treatment of the civilians and how the Kou's people lead over the civilians of the former country. Though treated as equals among st themselves they are mistreated by the Kou. Alibaba is made aware of how bad this is to not have real freedom or being able to use ones own intellect to better ones fortunes. What will he do?
