Didn't I read something about foreigners being only allowed in the docklands area of a Chinese city? Has anyone any more details? Marmosetpower 13:24, 31 January 2012 (CET)

Some speculation that occurred to me in a fit of fan fiction: people in Bes Pelargic are more likely to encounter foreigners and hear news from the rest of the world than the mass of Agateans. The Imperial Institute of Information (Ministry of Propaganda, whatever...) promotes the idea that Bes Pelargic natives (a demonym would be handy, but hard to guess) are a bit daft or stupid and not to be believed. This reduces the corrosive effect of truth on the official version of life outside the Wall. --Old Dickens (talk) 03:25, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
