Marineville is the headquarters of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol.

Ten miles inland on America's western seaboard, Marineville is a completely self-contained town built to withstand aerial attack, so most of its surface installations are capable of descending into underground silos when 'Battle Stations' is sounded. In addition to a network of missile silos and underground aircraft hangars, it has an extensive subterranean dock complex.

Linked to the Pacific by a ten-mile-long tunnel, Marineville provides maintenance and launch facilities for the WASP's fleet of submarine craft, including its newest and most effective strike vessel, Stingray. Military personnel live on-site in underground barracks or apartments. Some civilian workers live on-site, and a few commute in from the surrounding area.
