My guess is that there is no such narrator.   Steve wanted to do a 
political allegory and he set it in a world we are familiar with - 
giving us some more insights into that world - but the purpose of the 
novel is very different from the purpose of other books we have read set 
in that world.

Again - this is my guess only.
