The city’s name is Cube because the city is a cube, its structures built individually to compartmentalize cost but packed in to maximize access to the surrounding resources. From the outside, the skies above, one could see the perfect square of its borders and the mismatch irregularity of its rooftops as one building or the next rose over its neighbours. There were no streets, as such, in the city as one building walls touched the next and front doors of one building simply opened into hallways of the next. Many of the hallways were wide enough to facilitate small vehicles, such as light motorbikes. But to be honest, most of the citizens made their way from one place to the next by foot. Most spent their whole lives under artificial lights – with only those dwelling in the more expensive residences, located on the outward edges or below the rooftops, ever seeing the sun. Like other cities, Cube has its districts and at its deepest depths – just above the sewers – one finds the industrial sector. Inside the industrial sector, one finds the refineries and factories for materials from all over the planet and the source of employment for most of Cube’s citizens.
