A Giant Heart under the Ocean
If Hzentro is Terakuwa’s brain, Ihgnesia, one might say, is its heart. Ihgnesia is an underwater nation, sprawled 2,000,000 kilometers deep on the ocean bed, practically at the core of the planet. It is Terakuwa’s industrial and research center, housing 10 million metric tons of the most advanced industrial and engineering facilities. Its periphery is occupied by a massive network of gigantic research hubs, each of which is five times bigger than New York City.
These mega-metropolis-like research hubs are used by students, scientists, and engineers alike for the research and development of their latest ideas. In a world where individuals are free to reach their peak potential, new inventions pop up organically, without pressure from deadlines and set goals. Ihgnesia is like a perpetually erupting underwater volcano. It’s always producing, always improving, regurgitating throngs of prototypes every single day. And unlike other planets, Terakuwa’s Ihgnesia only produces stuff that serve the well-being of its ecosystem.
Speaking of ecosystems, it is the core of Ihgnesia that houses the infrastructure that protects the integrity of the whole ecosystem of Terakuwa. Experiments abound at the periphery, but at the core, only the most proven technology operates.
Throbbing at the core of the ocean-planet, as the rest of Terakuwa goes by its usual business from dawn ‘till dusk, and from dusk ‘till dawn, Ihgnesia maintains the planet’s well-being, pumping blood through its perpetual bountiful technological produce. To its steady beat, Terakuwa continues to revolve around its sun.
