As construction for homes and businesses continue, Civic services are also in demand. No formal vocational school has been founded in Rumination yet, so police, firefighting, and medical personnel are either certified in Japan or Russia, or are veterans.
This is an example of the growth of civics in Rumination. Hospital-01 is the first major medical center in Rumination. Doctors here have an expansive database of medical knowledge from Japanese and Russian literature. As well as having a trauma center, Hospital-01 has a Psychology department that is heavily funded, as all settlers are required to see a Psychiatrist to log the information required by the study.
Among these personnel is a young doctor who is excited to start her career in a new land...
Dr. Kallista Prokofiev, a recent graduate of Moscow State University, moved to Rumination to start a Psychology practice. Her office is one of many in Hospital-01. Her quick graduation to doctor is partially based upon her family having high power in her hometown of Samara.
Rumination has a hilly landscape that can be difficult to build upon, however, it's soil composition is perfect for building. People are now allowed to bring their old vehicles to Rumination. This decision is not permanent, as there are plans to make Rumination the first territory to use hybrid transportation only.
Things are going very well for the citizens of Rumination. Soon, though, this prosperity will be tested...
