As corporations have food, water, and oxygen sewn up and payments are necessary to keep breathing, Puerto Lumina is split between two extremes: a downtrodden wage-slave population and a highly brutal, desperate criminal underworld.
Puerto Lumina was formed before 2070. It rejected the Judge system and the Oxygen Board set-up of Luna 1, and was embargoed for it. Deprived of vital resources, riots, lawlessness, and cannibalism spread through the colony until trade with Brit-Cit was opened up.
By the 2110s, the settlement had come under the control of corporate "supply-and-control" companies and an international Judge force anyway. The crime rate was one of the highest in the system.
In 2124, Puerto Lumina requested Efil Drago San's extradition from Mega-City One. MC-1 refused to even acknowledge the request because of the settlement's anti-Judge stance.
By 2117, as with other lunar colonies, Judges from Earth were sent on a 12-month tour of Lumina to keep the peace. The death rate for these Judges was between 70 to 80 percent.
