Kabuki Quarter カブキ・ディビジョン
文化・スポーツ / 宇宙活動 / 社会・生活
A red-light district located in the center of Beyond Coast. Its main attraction is zero-gravity sex, which has become so popular there are tours from Earth that go to Beyond just to visit this area of the colony. It is said to have started after the outbreak of STBO on Earth, when various entrepeneurs in the adult entertainment world moved their businesses to Beyond Coast to escape the disease. No one knows for sure who gave it its name, though it is thought to be named after the Kabuki-cho red-light district located in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Koontz bill クーンツ法案
宇宙活動 / 社会・生活
A gun control bill introduced by Robert R. Koontz in 2013. It decrees that all firearms be eliminated from space colonies and bases, and has since been implemented on Beyond Coast. It was originally intended as a gun control measure for Earth, but it has helped make possible the total abolition of civilian firearms in outer space, with space's unique environment particularly benefitting from such a measure. There is a growing movement on Earth calling for the immediate adoption of this bill, especially in places like America, where guns can still be easily obtained. Known on Earth as the Koontz bill, instead of law, because it has yet to be ratified there.
