The United Commonwealth has a strategically placed naval base on this island, allowing its troops to patrol the Striper Isles in an organized and tactical fashion and keep tabs on the Fallen Province at the "tip" of the island cluster. While it is a military outpost, it still does offer a society friendly to civilians who once served in the Commonwealth, as well as spouses of Commonwealth personnel. You can find all your necessities here, and further east of the island is a military industrial park where, every year, new ships and subs are welded together and pushed out to sea, complete with strong and capable staff. The only means to access the Island is through a toll bridge, monitored 25/8 by strict security personnel. The coast is heavily patrolled and guarded, and the troops are trained to shoot on sight with pinpoint killing accuracy should the need arise.
