Junanda (ジャナンダ) is an island that houses prisoners and their families.
Junanda is a mountainous island that houses prisoners and their families, should they choose to follow. The land is rocky with little to no plant life and there appear to be many caves.
The Arena is located in the center of the island while on it's periphery are churches. The Church of Bennett is located in the east, the Church of Monjo is in the north, and the Church of Zumra is in the west. Most of those areas have been converted to residential areas. There even used to be missionaries but the only thing that remains are a few pious followers.
Junanda is self-sufficient, with many people farming or raising livestock. It seems that many of the people eat small vegetables like potatoes, roots, and other food such as dried berries. Although cattle is present on the island, it is unknown if only those with power can afford to eat meat. Also, because the island is on a body of water, it can be assumed that fish is part of their diet.
Originally, Junanda was created as a prison for an unknown country and, for awhile, it was run as such. However, the population grew too big for the administration to handle. Eventually, the wardens left the island and the prisoners took over the land, creating their own rules.
One of the jobs on the island is to collect prisoners from other countries and bring them to Junanda. Prisoner's are not allowed to work those jobs, only people who are greatly trusted. Prisoners are, however, allowed to work in the fields and elsewhere on the island.
On Junanda, there are no rules and people are free to do as they please. Killing is accepted and even glorified. However, the only real rule is that prisoners are not allowed to leave the island; those working in the shipyard are kept under strict watch to make sure no one escapes. The only way to legally leave the island is to get permission from the Island Chief.
Upon entering the island, each person receives a brand on their hand. Family of the prisoners receive a triangle while prisoners have a triangle with a circle in the middle.
Many of the buildings and pathways on the island appear to be made out of brick or stone. Some residents sleep under makeshift tents while others sleep under the open sky.
Residents on the island are seen wearing torn and ragged clothing. New clothing seems rare to come by and many people are most likely wearing the clothes they had on when they first came to the island.
As a means of providing entertainment, Junanda hosts a tournament where the victor becomes ruler of the island. The ruler can do anything they wish however, the biggest challenge they face is surviving. Many new rulers are killed, either as revenge for killing the previous ruler or so someone new can take their place.
A new tournament is held when the current ruler dies. The tournament Fushi participated in was the "five-thousandth-or-so" selection tournament. The tournament starts with a preliminary fight which is broken into eight groups. The last one standing will then move on to the one-on-one fights.
In a letter Tonari wrote to Honda, she mentions that a new religion centered around Fushi was gaining popularity. The group lead by Hayase has been spreading the religion and converting people on Junanda, as well as others around the world.
Tonari's Hideout Edit
The hideout is Tonari and her group's living area. The building has no roof, is made of stone with various types of rugs laid out, and has a fire pit in the center.
Ivo Port Edit
A port where the ships carrying prisoners dock. Ivo Port is the only known port on the island and is located in a cave.
The arena is the building where the tournament is held. It appears to seat thousands of spectators and hundreds of tournament participants.
