Academy City is the primary setting of the Toaru Majutsu no Index series, it's side stories and this RP.
As the city's name suggests, it is a city of several schools and institutions of higher learning from kindergarten to university level that learn side-by-side along with the scientists who research on psychic powers and higher technology, the latter being one of the primary reasons for its establishment. The city was founded by the magician Aleister Crowley to do studies and research on the development of preternatural abilities. It is the most advanced city in the world and its technology is said to be 30 years ahead of the world. Nearly all inhabitants of the city of Japanese descent, though there are some foreign inhabitants of the city. Only a handful of residents are aware of the existence of magic.
According to some, the students in Academy City are just being used to further the research and development in the achievement of a Level 6. Academy City uses the mystique of gaining powers to promote people to send their children into the city as well as to attract sponsors, events which showcase Esper powers which are normally prohibited by the city, are an example of this. Such events bring in thousands of spectators into the city, which is normally closed to outsiders.
Aleister Crowley is the Chairman of the Board of Directors and holds absolute power of the city, however, he usually doesn't concern himself with government affairs and delegates them to the 12 members of the Board of Directors. According to Aleister, the members of the board of directors are expendable and can be replaced any time. The government has absolute power regarding policies, as adults have no say regarding policies being implemented. There is no suffrage since the majority population are minors.
Academy City is the first to successfully create artificial Espers. Because of this many organizations desire the secrets of the program and others, such as the Magic side, wish to eliminate it. As consequence to this, security in the city is tight with three surveillance satellites above the city and a wall that separates the city from the outside world among others.
Located just west of Tokyo, Academy City is composed of 23 districts, which are simply called School Districts and are numbered from one to twenty-three. Each of these districts has a specific purpose; below lists all 23 School Districts of Academy City, including their functions and purposes:
