Named after a Greek anarchist neighborhood on Earth, Exarchia is a bustling autonomist station near
the trailing cluster of the Jovian L4 point. It is best known as a nexus for anarchist hacktivism. A significant portion of the residents here devote their time to programming privacy and anti-censorship tools, finding exploits in hypercorp firewalls, and reverse engineering proprietary code. Many of these hacktivists work with groups like Anon, Datacide, and Mesh Leaks, as well as other crypto-anarchists around the system. Their local mesh is home to the Exarchia Data Haven and a high number of anonymizers, proxy servers, and similar tools. Due to the number of hacktivist campaigns, denial-of-service attacks, and exploits that originate from this station, it is a frequent target for mesh attacks launched by rival hypercorps, governments, and vigilantes.
