Other Fictional Locations

Panala

Main Article: Panala.

Panala was a completely fictional city until it has been partially actualized in the world of Sedan. It is the second largest community of the world after the city of Sedan and the national capital of the United Islands and is located on Taluwah Island where its own territorial division, refered as the Capital Area, shares the island with the state of Taluwah. The city is home of the national parliament and many other governmental offices and agencies as some of the largest companies in the U.I.

East Sedan

East Sedan is a fictional city located directly next to Sedan beyond its east boundaries along the coast. The city is said to be very industrial where important facilities like the nuclear power plant, main source of the metropolitan area, and Motorizo car assembly factories are located. The city also currently hosts the portual facilities of Sedan.

Organisations and Companies

This fictive environment gave birth to some federal and state organizations that have an important role in sedan like;

-UIBA(Federal) - United Islands Borders Authority, playing the role of world customs,

-UICI(Federal) - Similar to CIA, they are in charge of stocking all kind of data about the country,

-RTDNL(State) - Road and Traffic Division of Nuwa Lueza, In charge of the state road network and its signage.

Phone Numbers

The Sedan numbering plan, being in reality the United Islands numbering plan, is Sedan's own fictive phone system standard describing the allocation of phone numbers effective on its whole territory.

According to the U.I. numbering plan standards, regular phone numbers are composed of an area code of 2 digits and a personal number of 6 digits. They are mostly being used in some advertising and other visual purposes. Exemples can be seen on bus stops as on emergency and taxi vehicles. Area codes in the Sedan metropolitan area are 60,61,62,63,64,65 and 66, all serving specific geographical zones. However the country code is unrevealed. Besides regular numbering there are also short key numbers like the emergency number written on police cars and ambulances is 0-0-0 (Triple Zero or Triple Oh), the same used in Australia for example. It must be specified that all phone numbers in Sedan are only used to add realism in the city and cannot be dialed.
