Welcome to Wallace. This is the my starting point of setting in heavy industry into mostly agrarian region (though the actual starting points are in Boscov and Dundee). Wallace is the depot for all garbage coming from Coventry and later Dundee and its metro area. Wallace is actually just the sliver of land between the two creeks it dumps it's industrial waste into. This town is grungy, working class and environmentally unsafe, but provides for it's grunts and is highly productive in the nuclear up-keep sector.
Wallace produces much of Novoe Russkaya's current power demand from the Ernst Nuclear Power Station and from the neighboring Flat-top Wind farms. The Ernst Power Station has been an environmental disaster throughout it's tumultuous history with Wallace and the neighboring areas. The Ernst Power Station is an renovated and costly maintained former Soviet Union nuclear power station. While the station has not fell into such disastrous disrepair as it's Russian counterparts, the plant's location and future are uncertain. At the time, few in Novoe Russkaya knew of the dangers of large scale nuclear material could have on a populated area, so when it was realized that if Mt. Tahoma ever erupts, the city of Dundee, Cedar River and Boscov would all be exposed to the full forced of a radioactive flood due to the plant's position at the headwaters of the great lahar valley. The wind project has been especially expensive as the windmills on the flat-tops and in the eastern territories over the mountains have become the number option to the Ernst power station or reverting to using American coal again, which most Longhouse citizens are reluctant to do.
