Eden is the classification name for a grouping of at least 52 installation created by Bio-Stera when the situation on the continents was deemed unsalvageable. Practically nothing is known about other Edens beside Eden 52 but being built by one corporation around the same principle we could reasonably expect them to have the same structure and organisation. So the majority of the following informations are based on Eden 52's core ones.
These installations take the form of floating cities navigating on the sea in clusters, able to draw power from the sun and purify sea water for their populations. They were designed to be as resources efficient as possible, even through passive means such as decorative plants genetically modified to use as little resources as possible and making them act as biofilters to aid in the purification of the water supply.
Eden cities are hence able to renew their energy supply but they are not fully self-sufficient on other resources and need periodically to dock to each others to share some of them and make up for any deficits. But this method is only temporary solution so Eden clusters sometimes have to stop at rich site like geothermal vents to replenish their dwindling stocks of the corresponding resource, for this example, Sulphur.
Citizens migration and even communications between individual cities are expressly forbidden to the point where, when two Edens are docked together during resources sharing, only automated entities are allowed to cross their borders. the reasoning behind these rules is never questioned and they are believed to be failsafes against catastrophic events.
Before the Exodus, to be sure to keep a good genetic diversity and safeguard against future loss, a lot more individuals than Edens could possibly accommodate for at one time were selected, leading to only a small portion being awoken at one time while the others, called Sleepers, would be cryogenically stored.
The citizens are free to form relationships as they please, but due to genetic precautions, procreation is strictly controlled through the New Life Foundation. Because of that, the concept of familial ties is non-existent, hence the concept of inheritance. So basically, the particular domicile of a late resident is just automatically reassigned to the next qualified individual.
To keep the society peaceful, all the citizens are highly encouraged to take a Temporil injection which dampens aggressiveness, though it is not compulsory, there is a social stigma on those who refuse to comply.
