The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation on earth, including China and Russia.
In order to further increase jail capacity and to, once again, pull ahead in the space race, the U.S. plans to build several hundred prison complexes on the moon. They intend to send prisoners serving lifetime sentences to the moon, as well as all death row inmates.
Warden Jeb “The Punisher” Lockhart: Many prisoners will die on the way up there. Many more will die during their comfy stay. Others will try to escape and they will certainly die. There are no human rights attorneys on the moon and it is an exceedingly hostile environment. I always wanted to be an astronaut but this is perhaps even better. Space Warden. It has a nice ring to it… don’t you think?
