Hey you guys,
What have your characters been doin' in space since September?
The Space Station It's part of a big ass Dyson Sphere that will eventually envelope the sun but for now it's hanging out behind it like a weird hair piece. Top scientists have described it as 'completely self sustaining, energy wise, and literally just being a big ol' planet exploding weapon.' It was the brain child of Tony Stark in collusion with an alien race, the Shi'ar (weird hair, partial to mutant guys in wheelchairs). It has partially terraformed living levels complete with cities of uniform energy efficient buildings housing homes and medical buildings and pretty much whatever you'd need to survive in space. There are areas devoted to laboratories, to ship bays, to workshops. Also there is a command center place currently run by the Shi'ar buuut we'll get to that later.
A scale model of the Dyson Sphere. Earth is like the size of the angry sun's eye, so this thing is just massive.
S.H.I.E.L.D. is gunning to run the place, like they do, which shouldn't be too hard since the Shi'ar are just paid to be there anyway and they probably don't give a fuck. But you know who does give a fuck? The former governments of Earth. There's a power struggle happening among humans because that is just how they operate. It doesn't help that various living areas were assigned (after much bitching by their former leaders) to different nations to inhabit. Still, large as this place is, it's easy for 'countries' to keep to themselves. Most places have adopted similar governments to those they had on earth, but here there is at least an attempt at collaboration between scientists and engineers and leaders have frequent meetings in the command center to squabble. Thanks to the patchwork nature of building once the Shi'ar left, different countries have different looks and architecture.
This isn't Earth but it's the best we've got, welcome to the future~
