オブジェクトクラス: Keter1

特別収容プロトコル: SCP-4036はその周囲120,000km2圏内で財団と国連平和維持軍で協力してSCP-4026-1実例とすべての取引を防ぐために管理されます。どんな物体、人間がその境界を通ろうと試みた場合、それらは無力化され、インドネシアに再配置されたサイト-004に拘留されます。

財団工作員はすべての政治的、軍事的、宗教的、文化的組織にSCP-4036を浸透させます。これらの工作員たちはすべての発生中の事件の情報と潜在的な財団に対する組織の情報を入手し、SCP-4036内の潜在的組織を倒す/転覆させます。すべての場合、SCP-4036内人口の最低2%が財団工作員か財団に忠実なSCP-4036-1実体へと仕立て上げられます。

SCP-4036から財団に対する大規模な軍事作戦がある場合、オペレーション”ブラックリリー”が制定されます。オペレーション”ブラックリリー”は(A)SCP-4036が近いうちにXE-"取られたベール"シナリオなしに収容することができなくなりうる(B)陸のその広い領域が彼らのそれぞれの国に返されない、(C) SCP-4036が財団の部隊に潰走し、完全に財団が無防備になるように去る可能性がある場合のみ制定されます。

SCP-4036の大統領が調停する姿勢になっているとき、それは今までの行政、政治の中の敵意が不足しているということです。しかしながら、その際の財団に対する雰囲気、恒久的な解決策が確立される前に大統領が追放される可能性、外交的関係性は変わりません。特別収容手順は反財団大統領と立法機関が政治機構を超えて勢力圏内に入れる可能性のある地域では維持されます。

説明: SCP-4036はポリネシア南東諸島の半径300 km、面積100,000 km2の領域に位置する小さな単一政府制の神権主義的共和国です。 SCP-4036の国民はポリネシアのAdytite共和国と呼んでいる/参照しています。それは以前はPoI-432("Norman Taylor")の独裁支配下で、1857年から彼が財団支配下の企業によって暗殺される1862年まで続きました。これに先立ち、SCP-4036は高度に軍国主義化されていて、産業時代の技術と生物兵器を軍事動員を作るために組み合わせています。SCP-4036はまばらに人口の多い場所を含むポリネシアの30%程度を支配していました。現在のSCP-4036の当局は、創設者、PoI-432、前の皇帝支持者の大望を否定しました。

SCP-4036の人口2は現在の予想の50~80%にわたって異常です。 政府の統計では64%程度の人口は異常で、しかし査読不足のため、島の代表の人口である場合、不明です。その人口は主に肉の操作ができます。

SCP-4036の国境はサーキシズムで、公式統計ではSCP-4036-1の全ての実体3はサーキシズムの信者と主張していますが、実際は小さなキリスト教徒やイスラム教徒のグループが存在することが分かっています。宗教の自由はSCP-4036の憲法のもとに認められていますが、ほとんどの非サーキック団体は社会的及び政治的追放を防ぐため秘密裏に崇拝しています。

SCP-4036の社会は主に農村で、人口の多くが住んでいる中心都市がいくつか存在しています。これらの都市の場所は、標準的なコンクリートの建物から生物学的な建物まであります。経済的に、SCP-4036は動物と人間の農業、製造業、たばこ生産から構築されています。取引はSCP-4036の収容が継続中のため不可能です。SCP-4036の政府は経済の60%をコントロールしており、残りは個人または団体が保有しています。

SCP-4036の政府は、執行、立法、司法の3つの支部に分かれています。

立法府は、下院、上院、カルキスト評議会の3つの家に分かれています。下院は現在、約100人の代表者で構成されており、各代表者は100人を代表しています。上院は、それぞれ1000人を代表する10人の代表で構成されています。両方の家は、地区ごとの多数決によって選ばれます。両方の家は、地区ごとの多数決によって選ばれます。カルキスト評議会は、主要な宗教運営機関である共和国教会を代表する20人の個人のグループであり、そのすべての市民がメンバーです。この家は、カルキストによって選択された個人の手で構成されています。法案は、次の2つの方法のいずれかで法制化できます。(A)上院と下院の両方の60%によって承認される、または(B)カルキスト評議会によって過半数の票を獲得し、その場合はほかの院のどちらかが満場一致で拒否した場合をのみ、否決されます。

行政部門は、大統領(一般投票で選出)とその内閣で構成されており、どちらも再選の機会なしに5年間の任期を務めています。すべての内閣の地位は、カルキスト評議会での多数決、または上院と下院の両方の60%の票を集めることによって承認されなければなりません。 司法部門は、6つのポストで構成される共和国最高裁判所を構成します。これは、大統領によって選ばれ、上院と下院の単純過半数によって承認された任命者で構成されています。4

SCP-4036の社会は、宗教的および市民的愛国心と現代技術に重点を置いた、プロトサーキックの信念と現代性の組み合わせです。グランドカルキストイオンの偏在性は、技術革新とともに、国民から高く評価されています。 電子製品およびデジタル製品はSCP-4036-1の間で人気があり、それらの大半は密輸または密売のいずれかから来ています。ただし、生物機械も、主に下層階級の間で大衆によって使用されています。 生物学的機械は、多くの場合、デジタルおよび電子技術に劣ると見なされており、通常、非生物学的オプションが利用できない場合に使用されます。多くの場合、下層階級は製品を購入することができず、独自の製品を作ることに頼っています。5

SCP-4036の社会には社会階層が存在しますが、すべての個人は適切な健康管理と食事の権利があります。 ヘルスケアは、世界と比べると比較的安価です。しかし、これはおそらく、政府の医療制度の固有の優位性よりも、人口の間での生物学的操作と手工業の豊富さに起因する可能性が高いです。

市民が19歳に達すると、軍隊への参加または民事義務が義務付けられます。個人は、除隊される前に2年間軍隊で時間を過ごすか、16ヶ月間の民事義務に参加しなければなりません。 ほとんどの市民は後者のオプションを選択します。

愛国心と宗教的感情は、SCP-4036の文化的描写においてしばしば一致します。Klavigar Saarnはしばしば、SCP-4036の化身であるLady Adytumと深く関係しています。 祈りはしばしばSCP-4036の旗への敬礼の直後に起こります。SCP-4036のすべての大統領は、サーキズムに対する強い信念を引用しています。 SCP-4036-1の大半は、個人がサーキックでもない限り、SCP-4036の市民になることはできないという信念を持っています。SCP-4036の軍隊は、戦争と支配のクラビガーであるクラビガー・オロックの印章をよく使用します。

現在、SCP-4036は約300の島々に収容されており、これらの国境を越えて拡大することは許可されていません。 財団とSCP-4036の間で公式の条約や協力協定は確立されていませんが、膠着状態をやめるためのどちらの側によるさらなる試みもありません。



History

General [REDACTED] Bowe, Circa 1854.

Introduction of SCP-4036: Its History, Its Containment, and Its People

[…]

The Foundation first discovered SCP-4036 during its invasion of the Northern Island of British New Zealand. There were reports of an undiscovered force in Polynesia causing havoc across the smaller, sparsely populated islands in southeastern Polynesia. However, since there was no substantial proof for this, it was discarded.

Upon the invasion of North Island in June of 1861, the Foundation could not ignore this call for war. Within the day of the initial invasion, the entire island fell to SCP-4036 and its force of 5000 men, with a collective of 200 dead. After this, the Foundation declared SCP-4036 the top priority of the region.

[….]

By the end of June, an international coalition of Spain, Japan, Netherlands, France, and Great Britain had been called together by the Foundation for the purposes of combating this destructive threat against the Foundation, and, to a greater extent, colonial interests in the region.

With General Bowe leading forces in South Island New Zealand, the Coalition began to force SCP-4036 back. However, despite conventional military wisdom suggesting otherwise, SCP-4036's forces were able to defeat multiple attempts at Foundation invasions of conquered territory. The attempted invasion of North Island failed, with over 1,000 Coalition causalities, mostly Japanese and British. All attempts at gaining the few, isolated pockets SCP-4036 had control over failed, mostly due to a lack of understanding of SCP-4036's military.

[…]

However, one individual, Ohashi Hachigoro (AKA PoI-433), knew how to help. Vice President of SCP-4036 and leader of religious affairs, he had an understanding of the culture of SCP-4036 that none could rival, even Taylor.

Writing to O5-2, a friend of Ohashi before his work with SCP-4036, he offered the Foundation near unlimited information to SCP-4036's military operations, their tactics, their weakness, and, if supplied with armaments, rebel groups in the region. It was an offer the Foundation could not help but take advantage of, and the only thing Ohashi wanted was that SCP-4036-1 (the population) be unharmed.

The Foundation, in a remote island near the main capital of SCP-4036, delivered a variety of armaments to Ohashi and his rebel groups.

[…]

However, the decisive factor was the Battle of South Island.

The Battle of South Island began on October 13th, when dozens of bone ships were seen on the horizon. Their hulls, made entirely of femur bones, made cannon fire near impossible. Along with eyes implanted on every part of the vessel, boarding them would also be impossible.

Preparing to defend the Island, General Bowe gave his men the order to hold their ground.

However, in the background, General Bowe came up with a different plan. When the O5 council gave him temporary Level 5 status, he had access to information a normal General would not have been privy too. One of these was Mobile Task Force-Theta-01 ("War Hawks"). Formed during the Foundation Civil War of 1814, Theta-01 was composed of anomalous individuals. Drawn from anomalous Persons of Interest, staff, and SCPs, the task force was made up entirely of individuals who had proven their loyalty to the Foundation. During times of disaster, they were anything from combat operatives, medical officers, memory wipers, and spies. They were an Ace in the hole.

So when General Bowe ordered them to destroy the fleet, they were only too glad to answer that request. With a large thaumic blast from the sky, the flesh fleet was fried, with no mercy.

[….]

By the end of 1861, SCP-4036 had been all but beaten.

Not only that, it was near collapse. Ohashi, seeing an opportunity that the Battle of South Island left open, ordered his rebel groups to seize the day, and attacked the Capital.

Within the span of two months, from December to January, the Capital was laid to ruins. The Capital, made up of over 20,000 citizens, mostly military, was reduced to 3000 by the end of the fighting. However, despite the mass destruction, Hachigoro was able to come out the victor, declaring himself the President of the Republic, calling for elections of the House of Representatives, Senate, and for the Church to call in delegates.

[…]

Taylor, realizing he had nothing left to lose, attempted one final assault on the Capital. Grabbing hold of the handful of men still loyal to him, he marched on the Capital building, ordering Hachigoro, his former comrade, to surrender, and that he would pardon him if he did.

Ohashi, instead, had his handful of men slaughtered in the street, and Taylor himself gagged and placed into his own private cell.

Ohashi knew that Taylor was leverage.

[…]

The Coalition, however, did not need leverage. Most of the population had been, thanks to Theta-01, pacified, and the damages covered up. The Coalition had their colonies back and with minimal damage. It should have been sufficient.

But it wasn't. The Foundation, still believing that containment had not been fulfilled, pushed the Coalition to invade the main island. However, the Coalition, unfamiliar with Foundation policy, were not willing to plan a full out invasion of the island. They were not willing to test their militaries after near defeat mere months ago.

Ohashi was also not willing to cooperate. He refused to allow Foundation representatives into the island, and ordered his military to arrest all Foundation officers that arrived. With no way to combat this, the Foundation resorted to containment of SCP-4036.

SCP-4036 remains the Foundation's biggest failure.


Modern

The following is a series of excerpts from interviews of current day SCP-4036-1. These recordings were done under the guise of a reporter from the Capital of SCP-4036.

"….oh yes, I, um, yeah, I speak English. I'm not the best at it, since it's usually used by the, um, higher ones? I think that's the correct word. Again, my English is poor, so I apologize for the incorrect word. Yes, I'm Japanese, although I have not been to that country. My father sometimes talk about it, but I, um, don't, uh, don't know anything about the culture or anything. I tend to use English sparingly. Only the city ones ever use it. We use the traditional language, the ones our ancestors used to communicate with Ion, before we were cut off. Hmm? Oh yes, since we use metal, our High Priest Ion cut us off from his flesh. We are wandering in the dark now…

"We don't use those machines. We use flesh and bones like we always have and always will use. Whenever I hold one of those things in my hand I feel unclean in my own skin, I feel like a spirit massages my skin and scalp in a horrifically uncomfortable way. Even talking about it makes me uncomfortable. Oh, yes, many of the farmers out here don't use them, but I think it's due to their economy than their beliefs."

"The sewers are, if not the worst thing I've ever seen, at least up there in sheer quality of awfulness. The pipes are alive as well, you see. They grow and expand outward, and we need to encourage it to go in the right direction, you see. We cut a couple limbs off here and there. Sure they scream and squeal, but they need to transport our waste in the right direction, you understand. But that ain't the worst part, in my opinion. The worst part are the homeless critters underneath the city. We don't bother bringing the limbs back up. The homeless just eat it back up. And yes, those pipes are filled with our waste. I do not know how desperate a man must get before eating piss and shit covered flesh, but that is desperation if I've ever seen one."

"The Foundation is a scourge on this planet. I find our President's rhetoric amoral and — perhaps — dangerous. Does he not know our history? Our past? I don't understand how he could platform on mending that relationship, it's like sticking your dick in a beehive. It might feel good for a minute or two, and then the stinging happens. It's just unpleasant the whole way round."

"The President? I, um, don't keep track of what he does. Sorry, English isn't first language. I am American, I think, but I don't much about it. I know some Japan language, but I use the traditional language. It brings me closer with Ion. I think the city dwellers are too concerned with technology and metal than with our savior Ion, but that is not for me to decide. We all are absorbed back into his body in the end anyways."

"I don't think the Christians and Muslims deserve what happened to them, but it is unnatural for them to be here. It isn't natural for a European and Asiatic religion to be on this island. It spreads far and fast, and far beyond the eyes of our government that I think it's a danger to our society. Now, I don't think they deserve what's going on for them by any means, but should they really be surprised by what's going on? It's unregulated and clashes too wildly with our culture — we're a Holy nation after all, founded on Ion's beliefs and desires, not on Jesus or Mohammed. No, no, no violence, I abhor violence, I just want a peaceful cleansing of the nation, that is all."

"….I once went looking in the woods once. I heard their murmuring, their screams. I picked up my gun and traveled on foot. I was preparing for one or two, not a dozen, wearing large fleshy tendrils on their persons. They were wearing the symbols of one of the nearby warlord camps, and so I began to walk away, and then fell into a pit. I felt myself near bodies. Many, many bodies. Dozens, maybe a hundred. All in various states of rottage, of worms crawling around in the eyes and maggots eating holes inside the face and the throat and god knows where.

"My thud attracted to them. I gripped my shotgun and hid under the bodies, praying to my savior for forgiveness and to protect me from these barbaric monsters. They spoke in hushed whispers of the traditional language. One poked the body I lay under. I could smell her rotting corpse. Her eyes weren't there anymore, just glassy holes that used to contain humanity. A mother for one, a sister for another, a wife for another.

"I peeked out and say that they held flesh weaponry, black red tendrils popping out of their backs, revealing their skeletons and organs and everywhere else. I aimed for one of these backs, hoping to strike a heart or other vital organ. I aimed and fired, blowing not only his brains out but his heart and skeleton as well. I ran as far as possible, occasionally firing back as a warning. Their weapons worked best in close range, but were ineffective in longer ranges. I got inside my house and didn't come out until morning. I slept with a shotgun.

"I went to the police that morning in the city. They checked the pit.

"There wasn't a single person without Christian or Islamic iconography in that pit."

"The Foundation is our protector as well as our slaver. It protects our borders but only under the auspicious of keeping us in bondage. Our military isn't for protecting from other countries, but from an international agency bent on our destruction. I have heard stories of attempts to court the gee-oh-sea and gee-arr-you, but to no avail. I wonder if I'll ever see my homeland of Japan ever again, but I doubt such a possibility."

"Our battle with the Foundation isn't only an ideological battle over independence and centralization, but a battle over science and religion. You see, as the head of our Church, I believe that the Foundation is not only a physical but spiritual force. The Foundation is the force that seeks to contain who you are, what you are. They wish to contain our religion, keep it from spreading as it should across the world. If we can destroy that force within us all that seeks to contain our beliefs, we have already won the battle."

"I sometimes worry that our people are too focused on an upcoming defensive battle with the Foundation. The countryside wishes for peace and their common religion, while the cities seek outside products such as phones, the internet, and other technological equipment. The Foundation is a threat to their religion and their ability to connect to the outside. I worked for the military for two years, and I can say, we all know a war's coming, but we don't want to admit it. If there is a war, our country will burn, I can assure you of that."

"Sometimes I wonder why we're here. Of course, I understand how we're here, but I don't know why we're here. Are we just trying to keep the experiment our founder had many years ago? Of our second president? Or are we trying to survive against the oppressive forces of the Foundation? I don't know. I do know what we are, at least. Enemies of the Foundation. And that binds us together. For how much longer though? I am unsure."
