Map of Nx-IN-J

Nexus #: Nx-IN-J

Civilian Designation: Indiana, United States

Population: approx. 7 million civilians, 13 million anomalous entities

Area Class: Dunwich

Nexus Interaction Protocol: Any and all Foundation personnel stationed within the borders of Nx-IN-J are to have a Diegler-Jacobs1 certification of 95 or higher and a Pänz Psychic Resistance2 of 80 or higher. Any and all unqualifying personnel are forbidden from entering the nexus without Level-5 approval. Foundation personnel within the nexus must remain in sight of at least two other personnel at all times.3 Any personnel unaccounted for are to be considered lost, and no rescue attempts are to be made.

Nx-IN-J as a region is too large and historically prominent to actively contain, so Foundation resources are to be directed first and foremost at suppressing public awareness of its anomalous facets.

Containment Facility: Site-81

Description: Nx-IN-J is the 38th-largest by area and the 17th-most populous state of the 50 United States. It was chronologically admitted to the United States as the 19th U.S. state on December 11, 1816, and is generally considered part of the Great Lakes Region of the Midwestern United States. It is also home to more Keter-class anomalies per square meter than any other comparably-sized piece of land on earth. Major exports include corn, soybeans, limestone, and world-ending abominations.

Nx-IN-J was first made known to the Foundation on 14 May, 2014, when Level-2 Research Assistant Dr. Zachary "Zeph" Cochrane, stationed at the already-existent Site-81, came to the realization that the state of Indiana was home to more Keter-class anomalies than any other state. After checking RAISA records it soon became apparent that the state of Indiana was home to more Keter-class anomalies than any other place on Earth, and in fact was home to more Keter-class anomalies than people.

The anomalies of Nx-IN-J, as do the anomalies associated with many nexuses, share distinct themes of "loneliness, emptiness, [and] a sort of shallow dread that people who live in these kinds of places talk about."4

It is still unclear to the Foundation as to what exactly has led to the establishment of this nexus, but based on █████, some researchers have suggested a pataphysical explanation.
