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 an appointed administration oversees many of these facilities, 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 local administration, in which it overseas Area, Site, and OL-Site Directors to provide support and oversight. These administrative hubs are a focal point for administrative affairs that carry out the Authority's interest, often the directives 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 Kaliningrad's Russian territory under its jurisdiction. Various branches within Europe during the Auctoritas era were dispersed, and a centralized department 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 American 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 Central America Command's dissolution, later being absorbed by Northern Command the following years.


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. However, establishing 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 within the Russian Federation. Following concerning threats by the Soviets, EASTCOM was established to focus on Authority operations within Soviet territory and the satellite states. Regional restructure occurred following Soviet dissolution in 1991, resulting in most countries 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. However, this was withdrawn due to logistical limitations and was opted for a centralized authority within the African continent.


Eurasia Command

Designation: RS-06

Headquarters: Kastamonu, Turkey

Eurasia Command (EURASIACOM) is located within Western and Central Asia, spanning from Turkey to India with most Arabic states. Before 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 shifted to 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. At the directions of the Directorate, Asia Command was established to counter-balance Eurasia 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 under OCEACOM control. Furthermore, OCEACOM had temporarily presided over Antarctica until the formation of Antarctica Command in the late 1970s.


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 OCEACOM initially conducted oversight of this facility. 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 challenging to maintain by the Directorate in the early-mid 1950s. As such, the Global Directorate enacted various internal/structural changes across the Authority, resulting in establishing the offices of the Regional Directors, and its command components.

Appointed by the Directorate, Regional Directors are the highest-ranking local officials within their command and are tasked with managing operational capacity, coordinating, appoint, and removing local administrations (Site and Area Directors), and resolving formal disputes between them. Although there is only one Regional Site, within a given region there can be multiple Regional Directors; Each given authority over a set amount of sites within their jurisdiction.

Personnel with this status report directly to their Global Representative and enact/enforce their agenda locally. Where this differs from operations of the Board, however, is in their autonomy: Wherein Regional Directors act with a significant amount of independence from each other and do not converge on a regular basis. It is the sole job of Regional Directors to oversee the Authority at a sub-regional level so that Global Representatives may delegate the Authority at a Global Level.

Whether their authorization also extends to know the details and names of GD members, however, is unclear.
