After several emails with the designer in question, I am satisfied that his heart is in the right place and I have no further issues or concerns.
Therefore, I am editing my review:
This is one of the most unique and interesting game settings I have even seen in 40 years of playing RPGs. Even though I don't play Savage Worlds, I knew I had to help Kickstart it.
I have not been disappointed in the product in the slightest.
This product is so good, that I recommend its inclusion on everyones shelves.
