Before the apocalypse a base was created to preserve and protect the highest members of society, including the president, Vice President, high ranking military officials, scientists, etc. The population of this base will be 6,500 citizens and 1,000 maintenance workers to keep it running.
My question is: where could the base be located so that it can fit these criteria?
They have to be able to collect water (they can filter salt water)
They have to be able to make their own power, it doesn’t matter what kind they use.
It has to be somewhere where common folks can’t access it.
The apocalypse was a nuclear war, so it has to be somewhere that an enemy wouldn’t want to target.
They remain there for 500 years (even though they could leave if the want)
-The population doesn’t Grow bigger than 7,500 because the kill everyone at age 30, and couples of two can only have two kids, after which they are sterilized,keeping the population the same. -Most Of The education, maintenance, and food growing is down by robots, so people don’t have to do much besides breeding. -The entire base is controlled by a supercomputer who was programmed to keep them locked in until it’s safe, but it malfunctioned, so they are locked in forever
Where could they put the base?
This takes place in North America, which means they are limited to areas in or around the continent. They have about 15 years to plan and build the base, and they have present day technology.
