Diogenes Laputa emigrated to internal exile in America, where he now lives in his tub, in the zone between the lands of Kindle and Nook. Diogenes, a provopolitan, was banished from his first residence in America, the island of Laputa, ruled by devout PCs, for defacing its taboos. Diogenes has found that his motto, "deface the currency" (parakratein to nomismata), has already been accomplished by America's powerful, producing the most rotten scraps for dogs like him to feed on in the history of the world. Diogenes Laptua has adopted a decadent ascetic position, characterized by abstinence from various aesthetic pleasures, with the aim of pursuing intellectual, political and provopolitan goals. Whenever he leaves his tub, he carries his lantern, looking for honest men.
