Pandora’s government is a literal aristocracy. While there is no real economy, the power usually lies in the hands of those who control the water, food, waste, and air management levels. Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of the people like the knowledge that the water could stop flowing or the air could be sucked out of their chambers.
Asserting oneself into the government often requires an assassination. While this is common knowledge, there is little anyone can do to stop the chain of violence. As such, the Legislative floor is a highly guarded place, often privately funded by the politicians themselves who can provide cleaner water and better food to security details. One should be careful when visiting the Legislative floor, rumors have spread about a new line of automated security bots that become hostile towards anyone with unrecognized biometrics.
