Miss Pauling on keeping the mercenary's minds sharp as tacks

Teufort (also known as "America's Gravel Basket" and "The City That Never Seeps") is a fictional town, located in the Badlands region in the American Southwest. The town itself adjoins the 2Fort facilities. Some historical events related to the Gravel Wars take place in the environs and institutions of the community. Teufort is also the city that held the trials as well as the attempted hangings of RED Spy and Scout. The town also has a large landfill in the center of the town blocking multiple businesses such as Giuseppe's Pizza. The residents accuse the mercenaries of turning the school into a parking lot and many other things. The mayor uses illegal methods of running a town, executing, and education methods.

History

According to local publication[1], the settlement was founded by Claude Huggins, of whom was the lone survivor of a bear attack, who originally named the town "Hugginsville". He later renamed the town to "Two Farts" in 1847 during an incident with a group of teenage bullies where he was forced to. Huggins, whom was afraid to return the establishment's name to Hugginsville due to his incident, renamed the town to "Teufort"[2].
