Each of the main islands are connected by a series of major undersea pipelines. These pipelines transport Electricity, Water, and Communications etc…


Apart from the main commercial hub of the city of Heureuse, most roadways are more like driveways – narrow and almost flat. They can take a single lane of traffic, including a large truck, in a single direction. In the small housing estates, the same situation applies, although there are various small ‘turnouts’ that allows vehicles to pass when oncoming. These are every 200-300 meters and are similar in effect to a railway siding or shunt line.


All of the small roadways are serviced by wide spoon gutters that narrow before dropping to the underground sewer system. As the gutters narrow, any water that passes through activates a tiny spinner, which generates a small amount of power. These spinners are also attached to the gutters and downpipes of all buildings – commercial, residential and industrial.


As electricity is free throughout the islands, power outlets and charging stations abound. You can charge your cell phone at the bus stop, in the bus or at a coffee shop – it makes no difference, power is power.



Water is reticulated and filtered at a series of water treatment plants. Each island has its own sub-system, purifying water from the crater lakes and run off dams.


Only Fortunata, Portia and Perturbia are connected by bridges, all of the other islands require entry by boat, although emergency heli-pads are located on each island – they are seldom used for more than training exercises.


Portia has the only International airport in the group – it is fully equipped to handle the largest aircraft. Three major international carriers service the needs of the airport with flights North East and West available every day.


A secondary airport is available on Fortunata, along with similar airports on Perturbia and Impedia. Other islands have some level of runway, usually only suitable for 2-6 seater light planes. Indisgresso’s runway appears to have fallen into disrepair over recent years and is no longer seen as a part of the infrastructure.


Immigration and Customs services have offices at the airport and the seaport, and their administration is largely based on Portia.


Sewage is dealt with at each island independently. All sewerage plants are solar powered and are methane collectors. Fully denatured sewage is used as fertilizer after strict health, environmental and policy guidelines have been adhered to.
