Witch Nose Island

Witch Nose Island (known as Devil Nose Island until 1967) is the most secure prison on earth.

The entire perimeter is ringed by 27 krypto-web fences, 11 of which are electrified. The water around it is freezing and full of shnarks (which are more vicious than sharks), flesh-eating, saw-toothed doublodiles and killer electric rays. No prisoner has ever escaped from it.

Famous inmates include:

Name: Jerrold McMillan the Midnight Train-Thief

Sentence: 25 years
