Authority Regional Sites

Fig. 1.0: Geographical Jurisdictions of Regional Sites


The Authority employs a worldwide network of facilities that functions as research and containment installations. Sites, Areas, and OL-Sites are essential elements to the operational security of the Authority.

While many of these facilities are overseen by an appointed administration, external oversight is conducted by the highest levels of the Presidium. Specifically within Regional Commands, or commonly known as Regional Sites.

Regional Sites are the highest point of regional administration, which all Area, Site, and OL-Site Directors report to, that provide support and oversight. These administrative hubs are a focal point for administrative affairs that carry out the interest of the Authority, often the interests of the Directorate.

Regional Sites


Western Command

Designation: RS-01

Headquarters: Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Western Command (WESTCOM) is located within the European continent with 40 countries and the Russian territory of Kaliningrad under its jurisdiction. Various branches within Europe during the Auctoritas era were dispersed, and a centralized branch wasn’t established until the foundation of the Authority in March, 1834.


Northern Command

Designation: RS-02

Headquarters: Colorado, United States

Northern Command (NORTHCOM) is located within the North America continent, including Central America under its jurisdiction. During the financial instability of the 1980s, the Directorate reduced the bureaucracy and funds expended from Regional Sites. This resulted in reforms and the dissolution of the Central America Command, later being absorbed by Northern Command the following year.


Southern Command

Designation: RS-03

Headquarters: Santiago, Chile

Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) is located within the South American continent with several overseas territories such as the Falklands and French Guiana. The continent previously had a history with the Auctoritas during the Age of Discovery, though the establishment of an Auctoritas branch within the region has been at odds with the English, Spanish, and Portuguese.


Eastern Command

Designation: RS-04

Headquarters: St. Petersburg, Russia

Eastern Command (EASTCOM) is located within Eastern Europe with most operations taking place within the Russian Federation. Following concerned threats by the Soviets, EASTCOM was established to focus Authority operations within Soviet territory and the satellite states. Regional restructure occurred following Soviet dissolution in 1991, resulting in most states to be absorbed by WESTCOM.


Africa Command

Designation: RS-05

Headquarters: Johannesburg, South Africa

Africa Command (AFRICOM) is located within the African continent, along with Egypt and Madagascar. During initial planning, several iterations included the division of AFRICOM into four commands, though this was withdrawn due to logistical limitations at the time, and was instead opted for a centralized command within the African continent.


Eurasia Command

Designation: RS-06

Headquarters: Kastamonu, Turkey

Eurasia Command (EURASIACOM) is located within the Western and Central Asia, spanning from Turkey to India with most of the Arabic states under its jurisdiction. Prior to the 1970s, EURASIACOM was under-budgeted following financial initiatives allocated to other impotent elements that required attention. However, following an increase in local insurgents and Malthusian attacks, its duties focused onto anti-anomalous insurgencies by the 2000s.


Asia Command

Designation: RS-07

Headquarters Saitama, Japan

Asia Command (ASIACOM) is located within East Asia presiding over Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and Burma under its jurisdiction. Between the 1950s to 1970s, East Asia was part of Eurasia Command, but was systematically reduced resulting in the formation of Asia Command. Asia Command’s headquarters was relocated to Saitama, Japan, following China’s aggressive removal of the Authority from the mainland.


Oceanic Command

Designation: RS-08

Headquarters: Sydney, Australia

Oceanic Command (OCEACOM) is located within South East Asia and Oceania. During the 1970s reorganization, South East Asia was placed under the newly formed Asia Command, but was restored back under OCEACOM control. Furthermore, OCEACOM had temporarily presided over Antarctica until the formation of Antarctica Command in the late 1960s.


Antarctica Command

Designation: RS-09

Headquarters: Orkney Station, Antarctica

Antarctica Command (ANTARCTICOM) is located within the southern hemisphere of the Antarctica continent. In 1955, Orkney Station, also known as Site-091, was established as a logistical operations center for the Antarctic region, though oversight of this facility was initially conducted by OCEACOM. Antarctica Command was soon established with additional responsibilities for space affairs.

Regional Directors

As the Authority expanded its jurisdiction and security operations, organized leadership became vastly difficult to maintain by the Directorate in the mid-late 1950s. As such, the Global Directorate enacted various hierarchical restructure across the Authority, resulting in the establishment of the offices of the Regional Director, and its command components.

Regional Directors are the heads of a Regional Site, and also head the Regional Management, consisting of Area and Site Directors as advisors. While their authority is limited to their regional jurisdiction, they have the ability to appoint and remove Site and Area Directors, including approving and dissolving facilities.

Due to their clearance closely-aligned with Directorate personnel, Regional Directors often attend GD sessions and meetings. Whether their clearance also extends to know the details and name of GD members is unclear.
