If you play Netrunner, then you’ve heard of the megapolis New Angeles and you probably know that it is the home of the New Angeles Space Elevator… more popularly known as “The Beanstalk”.
The rulebook for Netrunner mentions a few things about the city and those who reside within it, but no source in the Android Universe goes into more detail about the specific location of that city than the Free Fall novel.
In the book, Detective Rick Harrison mentions that the United States purchased roughly a quarter of Ecuadorian land at the cost of around a trillion dollars. Totaling about 75,000 square kilometers, it includes most of the coastal plain between the Andes and the ocean, stretching from Esmareldas to Guayas. It boarders Quito, the Capitol of Ecuador and includes Cayambe, the third highest mountain in Ecuador and the location of the Beanstalk’s root. The image below shows my best guess as to how that lays out…
Thanks for the details Detective!
