Sorry I never really answered your questions, but we can at least do a quick write up for this one.
The answer would be a no, mainly because the way I envision the world that Mac and Tia enhabit as a semi-realistic world where people just happen to be different sizes or species, obviously in a place like this there would be standards and laws to keep things in check, and I don't want to start a weapon-talk thread or anything, but just because micros are small doesn't mean they don't have the technology needed to fight back, as well as numbers on their side, so there is of course a balance, and neither side would want to initiate a war. Especially because there wouldn't really be anything to gain for either side, pages 22 and 23 referrence macros with "pets" and this is a sort of grey area of course with slavery being a probable cause for some pets, etc. though when you think about that, it's really nothing unusual, things like that still exist in our world, so I imagine it would be handled much the same in Tia and Mac's realm, coincidently the law aspect is what's going to be touched on in the macro murder mystery story (how convenient!).
So that was allot longer than the quick response I intended.
