"On the outskirts of now-deserted Hapfelzdorf in the former GXD lies the vast, abandoned Zwip-Con Mega-Fac #77. Input bays are empty of supply pods, output bays with corrugated shutters are closed.
Solar panels still glisten on the roof, a wind-farm sussurates in the constant, persistent NoSeason breeze. Non-stop power for a non-op facility.
Inside, automata whirr over empty production lines. Conveyor belts deliver only the empty promise of work to bots operating on pre-programmed habit alone. Warehouse mechanicals serenely optimise acres of empty rack-space. A cleaning clone sweeps, oblivious to the wild dog barking at its solenoid ankles. Birds roost in the rafters. Nature infiltrates."
