The Greater Chicago Industrial Zone (often referred to simply as "The Zone") is a human city on Earth, located on the continent of North America near Lake Michigan. An outgrowth of the modern-day American city of Chicago, the Zone is a vast urban sprawl covering large parts of the "former" states of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana.[1] The Great Lakes Spaceport is located nearby. By 2558, Chicago was the third most populated city of the United Republic of North America on Earth, after New York City and Los Angeles.[2]

While physically located in the United States, the Zone is a de-facto independent city-state, with its citizens feeling more loyalty to it and, to a lesser extent, the United Nations than to the US government. This loss of national identity was a natural consequence of human colonization of other planets and systems.

The Zone was the hometown of Avery Johnson. It was home to an AMG Transport Dynamics facility.[3]
