Welcome to Longyearbyen (literally the city of the long year), a town that's so pro-life that nobody is permitted to die. In fact, it's illegal for anyone to die in this peaceful little Norwegian town, and should anyone break that law they'll find that they wont be buried as the town's graveyard stopped taking bodies over seventy years ago. A strange effect of the cold weather there means that bodies don't decompose, being preserved in permafrost along with any diseases they may have had. Anyone that does take a walk on the wild side of the law and passes away has their body shipped to another part of the country to be buried.
Strangely this isn't the only pro-life thing about the town. In fact the permafrost problem with dead bodies has proven to be invaluable in maintaining humankind should we face some horrific disaster. Situated near Longyearbyen
is the "Doomsday Vault", an arctic safe capable of storing and preserving millions of seeds. The "Doomsday Vault" is one of many contingency plans spread around the world to help humankind survive something akin to a massive meteor hit or nuclear war. Despite this, the vault is mostly used to preserve gene integrity in plantlife, with seeds taken whenever such genetic integrity is threatened.
Whenever anyone says that "life goes on" I always spare a thought for the people of Longyearbyen. For them it's not just a platitude; it's the law.
