The Czech Republic Enters the 21st Century is an in-game eBook in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It can be found on the rooftop of the Rose's Garden shop in Prague. It is one of the series of eBooks about the Czech Republic and its president Žofie Růžička:
- The Czech Republic Enters the 21st Century (this one)
- Růžička's Vision for the Future
- Růžička's Augmented Platform Crumbles
In the decades that followed the so-called "Velvet Revolution" of 1989 and the break with Communist rule, the Czech Republic embraced the Capitalist Democratic way of life more successfully than any other country from the former Soviet Union. In the first decade of the 21st century, the Republic was taking its first steps on the road toward fully developed status and true socio-economic growth.
By 2004, this progressive, largely secular, and forward-looking country had become a member of the European Union and their role in the European common market was steadily growing. Their future seemed bright; all that was lacking was someone with the vision and boldness to take the next step.
That someone was Žofie Růžička.
