New Caledonia is a French Overseas Territory in the Real World. It is also the location which the PPC uses as the earthly address of Headquarters. Quite why this particular spot was picked is entirely unknown.
The door to HQ shown in the image is located in the mountains of Poya, New Caledonia, around the coordinates 21°16'21.4"S, 165°07'50.6"E. It is designated 1-Nou-1. There are other doors elsewhere in the world.

Other Sites Edit
- The Hospital is located at the intersection of the Rue Dafydd Illian and the Rue Imbolc Telyan.
- There is a clock tower on the northeast corner of the intersection of the Rue Jay Thorntree and Rue des Fleurs, which may keep military time—it goes to at least 17.
- Across the corner from the clock tower is a small stage for musicians.
- There is a park at the intersection of the Rue Jay Thorntree and Rue Ella Darcy.
- Agent Monty's pond is to the west of town.
- The Musée des Univers Perdus is on the opposite side of the city from Monty's pond.
- There is at least one TARDIS dock.
- A cemetery on a hill with a cliff on the south face, where the grave of Makes-Things is located. Given the return of Makes-Things and his own insistence that he never died to begin with, it's unknown just who is buried in "his" grave; agents have tried to find out, but the DIA's New Caledonia division have guards posted at the cemetery at all times to prevent whomever is buried from being exhumed.
- A farmer's field just south of the cemetery hill, beneath the cliff face.
Other Uses Edit
Macrovirus Epidemic Edit

When the League of Mary Sue Factories unleashed a macrovirus in Headquarters, the city became a hub for agents, each needing somewhere to park their TARDIS and meet with friends while HQ was under quarantine.
Increasingly, the city in New Caledonia is being turned over to residential areas, particularly for agents with families. In contrast to the traditional response center, the city provides a reasonably stable, reasonably sane environment for children to be raised in, while still giving their parents rapid access to HQ.
