The Perfection of Misery

Wanna keep your human slaves docile? Don't remind them of what they don't have.

Human slaves, conquered and forced to work by their alien masters, barely survive their dismal existence. They have no days off, no female companions, and no entertainment. Just eat, sleep, and work.
