Hi,

The engaging detective story...melts elements noir, cop procedurals, political thrillers and speculative sci-fi to build out the Golden State, a dystopian nation that’s taken the place of what once was California.
(Quoted from an online article called It’s true, ‘Golden State’ is an imaginative detective story with Orwellian leanings)

What does “build out” refer to in this context?

Many thanks!

    I'd understand it as "to create the Golden State".
    So the story uses different genres, the result of which is the creation of the Golden State.
