New Hope is the centre of learning and rediscovery in the Free Trade Union. With the best, and arguably the only, education system in the Union, New Hope is famous for its scientists, doctors, engineers and rediscoverists. With all the experimentation that is conducted in New Hope the surrounding land is toxic wasteland. Most of the town’s structures are connected by a tube like system, though from time to time it is necessary to step outside. In these instances residents take care to ensure they have full protective kit on.
The town maintains a small population to keep as self-sufficient as possible. Surplus population take yearlong shifts leaving the town to do research field trips in and around the FTU.
New Hope is run by the Dean who, for his or her tenure, sets research priorities and funding requirements.
