A sprawling planet-wide city that serves as both the capital city and largest production hub of The Technocratic Union. It contains the largest manufacturing plant on the planet, being cappable of producing a Capital-Class ship in its entirety in one day, thanks to secretive Pre-Scream technology hidden deep within the complex. From Nexus 01 the Union's Triarchs convene to create policy and coordinate the three pilars of the Union's society.
Each of the three "classes" that make up the Union make up about a third of the total population of Nexus 01. The Engineering faction has a slightly higher population thatn the other two.
The Triarchs of the Union have direct control of Nexus 01 as it is the capital of the Union. Laws that affect the entire Union are decided upon as a group, while each Triarch has complete jurisdiction over his faction of the population. Cooperation is enforced by the lack of power a faction would have if it turned on the other two.
Orbital defence platforms, planetary shields over significant areas, massive standing garrison, and a large home fleet in orbit.
