Of course the first thing that struck me is, why stop there? The question could just as easily be more hypothetical.

...and we all lived on the planet Niribu in the year 1476 in a community whose principle export was nail files and we all rode around on ostriches fighting a race of super evolved egg whisks, and our leader was a three headed Bob Saget whose aim was to find the elusive criminal John Stamos for his robbery of the golden hair dryer from Mount Tiramisu to pay back his fines on planet Dimsdale for the crime of patting a dog the wrong way, i.e tail to head?
I don't have an answer to your question, per se, but it is a very good point.
