The Department of Scientific Discoveries, more commonly known as the DSD, is a scientific research facility located in Zone 1 of the Heart. Despite being a research facility, it is also where many criminals are sent for interrogation.
The DSD has four separate from interconnected departments:
Headed by Dr. Austin Richter, Research retrieves data through human experimentation, primarily conducted on criminals. Because of the often inhumane methods used in this department, Research is responsible for handling interrogations before the victim is sent to Termination.
Rehabilitation concocts cures for the innumerable illnesses that plague the State's citizens using the data retrieved in Research.
Engineering maintains all the equipment used at the DSD and is also responsible for creating the government-mandated tracking chips and identification checkpoints used throughout the State.
Termination is the department that earned the DSD its terrible reputation. Criminals who are not eligible for re-education at the State's Detention centers are instead sent to the DSD, where they are interrogated at Research before being disposed of through lethal injection at Termination.
