The slave city of Akolan was founded at the time of King Whitson Mariner. There used to be sentinels keeping watch over the slaves, but after Garten Longtreader's arrival, they were taken away.
Akolan is ruled by the Commandant. Every rabbit there must always have clear red scarf at their necks, called a preymark - a symbol of their slavery. The government is very liberal, with personal property virtually nonexistent and informers everywhere.
There are six districts in Akolan, all divided from one another by an expanse of garbage and waste.
The Fifth District, also known as the Lepers' District, was a district set aside for lepers in Akolan. It was expanded some time before Heather Longtreader's arrival in the city, with part of the Fourth District being split off into the Lepers' District. Whether any actual lepers were known to inhabit the district at any point is unknown, as members of the Seventh District used the illusion of such a disease as a cover. In actuality, the Lepers' District served primarily to conceal the activities of the Seventh District, including the entrances to their tunnel network.
The Sixth District was created as a home for those rabbits who choose to collaborate with the Lords of Prey under the leadership of Garten Longtreader's Longtreader Command. Its inhabitants enjoyed many privileges and authority over the rabbits of the outlying district, and thus developed a superior attitude. Workers were employed constantly to keep the district clean of the ash that fell constantly upon Akolan, and outwallers were often employed to perform various menial tasks within the district.
Heather Longtreader was brought to the Sixth District shortly after her arrival in Akolan, and later dragged out again after visiting Longtreader Command. She and her mother Sween Longtreader were later brought back to Longtreader Command after being arrested by Vitton. The population of Akolan was gathered the next day for Victory Day "festivities". In actuality, the Lords of Prey intended to take all the city's children as part of a cruel act of establishing dominance over all Natalia.
However, this plan was thwarted when the Seventh District, under the leadership of Whittle Longtreader as the Tunneler, invaded the Sixth District. Many of its members posed as inhabitants of the Lepers' District, and joined by sympathetic citizens they evacuated many of the children and elderly rabbits from Akolan city center. They then retreated to the Lepers District as the Lords of Prey arrived and began attacking, though the Sixth District was left in disarray.
