Hashima. Battleship Island. Headquarters to world's most notorious hackers, hacktivists and whistleblowers. Entirely protected by its own law, the citizens of Hashima share the same goal: to uncover and expose the unethical and illegal actions that the greater nations practice secretly. Founded in 1946 during Japan’s industrial and digital revolution, Hashima has strong roots in the Japanese culture. Following the Nagasaki bombing of 1945, an agreement had been called by Japan’s Prime Minister for Gunkanjima (former name) to operate under its own independent nation—with the objective to weaken the neighboring enemy nations using cold war-era spy equipment. In 1974; ‘Gunkanjima’ became officially rechristened to ‘Hashima’ and passed a new law which assures complete protection, asylum and immunity from prosecution to hackers, hacktivists and whistleblowers.
