In the movie, "in the early 2010s, "The New Founding Fathers of America", have established a new totalitarian government and a police state, following economic collapse. Using the 28th amendment of the U. S Constitution the government has established one night a year - called "the Purge", which occurs on March 21 to 22, in which all crime is legal, and all police, fire and medical emergency services remain unavailable for 12 hours, from 7 p. m. until 7 a. m. the next day. The only rules being that no government officials with authorization levels of 10 and higher are not to be disturbed and all weapons above Class 4 (explosive devices such as grenades, rocket launchers, bazookas, etc.) are forbidden. The purge has resulted in crime and unemployment rates plummeting to 1% and a strong economy. Although it is thought to be used as an act of catharsis for the U. S. populace, in reality, it is used as a method of artificial population control, as the unemployed, financially poor people in slum areas are usually the main targets."
