Mukaka Munch

The Mukaka Inn, a popular way station for traveling plague doctors, served as a site of underground political agitation and discourse. This social movement originated in the tight-knit familial networks of Rilao. Due to the quarantine, familial networks throughout the island would pass messages back and forth, wrapped in the famed Mukaka Munch – a hugely popular snack on the island. Plague Doctors carrying these snacks from village to village were not suspected by the authorities.

Mangrove Forest – Bronze

Prior to the quarantine, Rilaons citizens travelled vertically to their homes and destinations of the moving branches of [Muka] mangrove trees. This intertwined forest led from one end of the archipelago to the other, but after the plague, each district was walled off from the next — disrupting the continuous tree canopy and ending the uninterrupted arboreal transportation network. To commemorate this network, a sculpture of the arms moves up and down.

Dinwa

Dinwa, a mild hallucinogenic beverage used at DOL meetups during which they entered into a trance state and “engaged in visions pertaining to Lao” and then afterwards went into the town and wrought havoc on the elites in the name of the cause.

Dinwa is distilled from the eggs of the Naila bird. The Naila bird eats the Chali worms which feed on the leaves of the Muka tree. The hallucinogenic enzyme is produced during the digestive process. The eggs are placed in an absinthe for 10 years for fermentation.

Originally dinwa was made by the local population (similar to the production of moonshine); it was later produced and bottled commercially by Hubbley’s Bottling & Brewing.

Alcohol by volume: 120 proof

Fair Trade

Underwater transportation proved to be a much cheaper way to distribute items out of Rialo, giving The Narrows complete power over the entrance to all districts. The Narrows has decided to negotiate with the other districts for economic gain and power. Chronogons from each district, Quinn ( left) and Santiago ( right) officially created the Apple distribution agreement. Laoguna offered The Narrows 35% of all Apple products with The Narrows taking charge of the international distribution of their products.
