Shackleton, New Swabia
|Government||Mayor-council, socialist commune|
|– Total||90 sq mi (225 km2)|
|Time zone||Alpha Time Zone (UTC+1)|
Shackleton is the name of the proposed capital city of the state of New Swabia. It is located on a fairly sizable oasis in Queen Maud Land, approximately 50 miles south of the Schimacher Oasis, home to several Russian, German, and Indian research facilities.
Concept and Design
Shackleton is envisioned as a remote outpost in what could be called the "wild west" of Antarctica. It lies in a region that is virtually inaccessible by sea, despite the fact that the proposed town site is only 150 miles from the shore of the Indian Ocean.
