Joke Protocols

During the course of over 60 years following Project Safe House's creation in 1957 (the American Cold War initiative that later became a prerequisite to the event of creating Project Koalemos, the PSUP, and eventually the nation of New Periapsis), thousands upon thousands of protocols were drafted, revised, and created with the intent to proactively have a response protocol in place for any conceivable scenario regardless of likelihood. Due to the amount of stress caused over constantly revising these expansive lists of emergency events and projecting "acceptable" death tolls, it is no surprise that a number of these protocols were created by personnel as a way to blow off steam or cope with the reality of a potential apocalyptic scenario by using a morbid sense of humor.
