The Spark of Revolution
Electricity runs everything from computers to human beings. It's also the playground of Orgotek, the electrokinetic order. This multibillion dollar metacorporation employs people who can control electromagnetic energy through sheer will — psions. Headquartered in the heart of the fascist Federated States of America, Orgotek works to return the once-great nation to its former democratic and capitalist glory.

Release: Released September 1998. America Offline is the second combination order/region books, detailing Orgotek, North America, and electrokinesis.
The title — a reference to Internet company America Online — indicates that the Federated States of America is covered rather than North America in general, but by the 2120s, the FSA has taken over Canada and Mexico, so the two terms are largely interchangeable.
Cover: The cover art by David Seeley depicts a well-dressed electrokinetic crackling with energy as he walks through the slums of a North American city. An Orgotek skyscraper towers in the background.
Art: Production staffer Pauline Benney makes an uncredited appearance as Orgotek Prexy Alex Cassel's wife, Ellayne Cassel, in a photo of the two watching a tennis game.
Whoops: Originally, Jon Carroll, Matt Milberger, Steven Otte, and Eric Soulvie were accidentally left out of the credits. This oversight was later corrected in the next order/region book, Shattered Europe.
