I know it uses Chaosium's BRP system, but what is the setting all about?

From drivethrurpg.com:
Description:
“In the last centuries of the Fifth Cycliad, a great malaise began to descend upon the lands of humankind. The great civilizations of Urth, which for Aeons had seemed on the verge of slumber, now finally began to rot from within. From the edges of the world the ever-present enemies drew close, their hungry claws poised to tear apart the delicate flesh of a fruit a hundred millennia in the harvesting. And all around, a cry arose for Heroes, to stand against the dying of the light and save the world from the sins of its past.
“Some said that it was the end of days. Some said that it was only the beginning. These pages tell the history of that time yet to come. These are The Chronicles of Future Earth.”

Science-Fantasy Roleplaying in Earth's Far Future

The Earth we know is gone, forgotten in the depths of time. In its place is the Urth — a world of mystery and danger, steeped in a thousand centuries of history and legend, where humankind brushes shoulders with beings and creatures strange and monstrous. The Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, the greatest — and oldest — Empire on Urth, rules over half the world, led by an immortal God-Emperor whose very word is law. It’s a world of deep, dark forests, brooding mountains, timeworn ruins haunted with the ghosts of the past and the weird monsters of the future. Arcane sorcerers explore strange dimensions, terrible priests wield powers from extradimensional beings known as Gods, mighty soldiers forge new histories from the ruins of the past. It’s a time of danger, reckoning, and adventure. Welcome to The Chronicles of Future Earth.
This product is on my RPG Long List, I'll see what I can do to pic it up next month as it is something that intrigues me as well.

Thanks TAD,
I have heard it compared to Jack Vance's Dying Earth Setting, but I don't know how similar they are. I notice the label Science Fantasy, yet Future Earth seems more like a fantasy setting except that it may be set in our future?

I just ordered the Core Rulebook for The Dying Earth RPG. There is like a 7 page gazetteer of the world in the book (I know because I also bought the PDF), which I have not fully read yet. I also ordered The Compleat Dying Earth (Omnibus edition) which collects all the novels. So I'll let you know how the two compare after I'm done reading the book anthology and COFE.

CFE reminded me of Tekumel in some regards and at first glance thought it was a Tekumel clone. Though after playing it a few times with buddies(my friends love strange :D) it has its own unique taste, strange, mutated, and wonderful. I like it, would love to run it again and learn more about its races.
