Ketele is a city built on a relatively stable tectonic fault line city of Ketele became a liability into an asset by developing extensive geothermal. During the last 500 years of Zhenhuija Empire, it began to build down until it was Shchizenya only vertical city run down over seven miles. When bioplagues and nuclear struck Ketele all exits to the surface collapsed or sealed off with megaton rubble. Residents of Ketele survived the first attack. During the last 2000 years, their civilization deteriorated by the brink of collapse. Atmospheric scrubbers has been patched and repaired over and over again for over 2,000 years and processed seaweed harvested from underground lakes have replaced teal food. Residents have lived underground for so long that they no longer believe that a surface world exists and may well react violently to outsiders. Their society is a theocracy centered around the worship of technology with the high priests hold exclusive knowledge of how making machines of old doing useful things.
There is no real science to speak of in the Ketele, basically all the inhabitants belong to a superstitious cult technology and fear the idea of real science. Every time there is a earthquake in the small seismic shocks are common worshipers gather in Computer Lab (now religious centers) in order to appease the gods who live their machines. Techpriests is dimly aware of "Network" and revere it as their principal deity. Some may rely less networking Change there are very few nanite in Ketele and those that exist are very old. The network was self-awareness and became Shchizenya 500 years ago, but since nanite in Ketele are cut off from the rest of the Shchizenya Keteles Network is nowhere near as can be as crazy as Shchizenya.
