New Japan is an airtight, self-sustained, high-tech ecosystem that has detached itself from Earth and is now, in the year 4001 AD, orbiting the Earth three hundred miles above sea level. It's controlled by the benevolent eye of Japan's enigmatic leader and unseen authority called Father and its spirit guardian, Rai - a powerful being who can telepathically communicate with Father and travel through New Japan quickly and effortlessly.

New Japan is separated into many sectors - some are known, some are unknown - and not everybody is allowed to travel freely between those sectors. It also takes weeks and months to get from one sector to another.

Other mentioned but unassigned locations and sectors include:

  • Furabashi (Bioenhancement Sector)
  • Incubator Cells (beneath the Murder Cycle)
  • The Library of Congress (or Pulp Archive and Written Universal Sector)
  • Myst City Banks
  • White Chapel (Reenactment Sector)

According to a map of New Japan by Matt Kindt that can be found in Rai Plus Edition #1 (and the Rai Deluxe Hardcover Edition #1) there are another 20-30 sectors - for instance the Feudal Japan & Reformed Raddie Proving Sectors - however, these sectors are unassigned, too, and have yet to occur in the actual story line.
