The Ariel Cultural Preservation Enclaves (ACPE) are an attempt by the Commonwealth to preserve major minority cultures of Earth. The Enclaves are sem-autonomous districts of the city of Ariel. Each Enclave has the right to elect a Deputy Magistrate, and may adopt an official district language. The enclaves are located in the Eastern Region of the city. However following colonisation of the inner planets most of the enclaves have devolved into ethnic ghettos and disney-esque representations of former cultures.
