The book centres around the leaders and people of the Foundation itself, mostly on an around the main planet of Terminus, a faraway rock in outer space.

After Trevize makes his decision for Gaia’s path, the intellect of Gaia adjusts both Branno’s and Gendibal’s minds so that each believes he or she has succeeded in a significant task.

Yet events within it are often treated as inevitable and necessary, rather than deviations from the greater good.
