The Clave Proper
Behind fifty foot supersteel wals is the Clave proper. Highly organized in a near grid, the stone and supersteel buildings all rise to a uniform height slightly below that of the Wall, with a few shorter exceptions. Highly industrialized, the Clave is nearly on par with the Coalition States in terms of modern technology. Inside the Wall, streets run north/south, avenues run east/west, periodically broken by a diag (NE to SW) or a slant (NW to SE). In addition, the Clave has two Rings, Inner and Outer, matching the path of two monorails providing public transport. The Inner Monorail runs clockwise, the Outer Monorail runs counterclockwise. Electric and a few internal combustion vehicles are present though not overly common. Public education is always available and free for citizens, as is basic and advanced healthcare. While the citizens are mostly satisfied, the city’s strict regularity comes at a cost of bland monotony and uniformity. Buildings are almost invariably grey and undecorated, and the bureaucracy present in daily life is drudging at best.
