The Journey Begins

Because every great story has a beginning.

Origin of The Isles

Technological visionaries, computer scientists, and engineers. The unit originally constrained their AI's research to projects for the benefit of humanity, rapidly progressing them towards a sustainable future. In humanity's darkest hour, presented with the possibility of nuclear extinction, they turned their considerable capabilities to a different purpose: controlling the world to ensure its safety. Despite efforts to find a different solution, the islands were deemed the most effective solution for preventing another bloody uprising. Their inhabitants selectively transferred, due to being identified as a threat to stable society.

The Capital

Management

Bankrolled by great Western Countries, the island operates as a detention centre, often described as a privately owned torture island. It houses the highly valued prisoners that pose a threat to society, political status quo, and territory.

Function

An external point of view on the The Capital's function is represented by housing, rehabilitating and releasing the dangerous inmates. To provide a safe and effective place for dealing with problematic individuals. An internal point of view of The Capital, is a manipulative detainment centre where no one ever escapes. Inmates are engaged and engrossed at the prospect of climbing the social ranking ladder, chasing an impossible dream of escape or accession.

Justification

The viewpoint of the employees, who work to manage and detain the citizens of the island do not consider what they're doing as any more immoral than a standard prison. To the employees, they make the world a safer place, containing and managing all the violent, narcissistic and power hungry people. To the islands, they are doing the planet and most of its inhabitants a service. They cover the world's guilt, making these islands a place where nobody can die and do nothing to quench their desire for destruction and conflict. They would argue they do not encourage it.
