Zurich-Orbital Habitat is an orbital space station and home of the Zurich-Orbital Gemeinschaft Bank. It acts as a luxury home to some of the wealthiest people in the Sixth World.


Formerly the space station Freedom owned by Ares (purchased from NASA in 2016),[1] the space station was sold to the Corporate Court in 2023.[2] It was renamed to its current name, Zurich-Orbital, in the late 2020s.[3] The Corporate Court installed itself into the space station soon afterwards, and the Zurich-Orbital Gemeinschaft Bank established its primary offices in the station in 2033.
