DW is a privately-run prison in Tokyo that is also used as an amusement park for the general public. Deadman Wonderland was built for the revival of Tokyo in hopes to pull lots of tourists to watch the prison's special attractions.
The prison was built on the Mother Goose System and has 6 normal wards labeled A-F and one deadman ward labeled G.
This prison was built after the Great Tokyo Earthquake.
Inside the prison and behind the scenes, inmates are cruel and strong and do all they can to survive. In attempts to bring some sort of semblance and sanity, prisoners were issued personal cards with security codes to hold their currency known as Cast Points.
For every prison, there are those deemed more dangerous than any other, and Deadman Wonderland is no different! In DW, such prisoners are on ‘Death Row’, said sentence being a specialized collar resting about their necks constantly subjecting them to poison; these collars are capable of the shock and restraining properties of the average prison collars as well as a poison. The poison is fed constantly, and the only antidote is given to the prisoners as ‘candy’, a bitter treat that must be taken every three days, otherwise the poison will take affect and the ‘Death Row Rule’ will be put into place.
Mother Goose System
The Mother Goose System is a device made to seal the Wretched Egg. It's located in the center of Deadman Wonderland.
There are two parts of the MGS, the Center Part and the Chorus Blocks.
The Center Part plays The Lullaby to the Wretched Egg in order to seal it's powers.
One mischievous little woodpecker
Another day, pecking your holes
Ruining the woods, tree wrecker
The angry old forest god turned your poor beak into a poison knife
Poor little wood pecker, your nesting holes are all tainted
Your food with toxins rife
Touch your friends, and they all will die falling at your feet
Oh, sad little woodpecker
Poisonous tears, shining brightly, as they stream down your cheeks
Warusa baka ni no uddopekka
Kyou mon anake
Moriboro darake okotta uddo godo
Kuchibashi wo doku ni kaeta
Su ana ga doku ni, gohan mo doku ni
Tomodachi ni furereba shinubakari
Doku no namida ga kira kira hikaru
The life of a prisoner is, all in all, fairly even, depending on how well one is at avoiding trouble. To follow all the rules, participate in a good number of events, and generally be easy going is to lead a half decent life in prison; after all, Cast aren’t too hard to come by, and if you aren’t on Death Row, you have no expensive obligations concerning purchases! Of course, for every rule-follower, which are rare indeed in prison, there are the true thugs. Operating just outside the guard’s eyes, these are the ones who bully others, steal Cast, and are generally crazy. Of course, while the thugs tend to live easy lives due to stolen Cast as well, they often have items on them considered ‘illegal’ in DW, and therefore are subject to harsh punishments if the guards see any slightest hint of wrongdoing.
For Death Row prisoners, things are a bit more hectic. Not only must they buy ‘Candy’ every third day, but if a crime large enough is committed, they could very well be killed at any time by any of the higher-ranking guards. Likewise, however, these thugs can get by more on reputation then physical work, garnering more Cast from their targets then they would if they were the regular thug… but again, if one is caught threatening other inmates, who knows what terrible fate may await?
Deadmen are those who have been infected by the Nameless Worm and gives them the ability to manipulate their own blood. These Deadmen are brought into the custody of Deadman Wonderland and locked in a special section of the prison labeled with a "G" and have no interaction with average prisoners, aside from the occasional paid-for visit to the rest of the prison.
These Deadmen are forced to participate in events known as 'Carnival Corpse' by the Director. At Carnival Corpse, they are pitted in battle against other Deadmen. The winner is rewarded with a massive amount of Cast, but the looser looses a limb or in most cases, their life.
The collars on the Deadmen stopped administering the poison, leaving them with a while lot of cash and no obligation to buy 'candy'.
Branches of Sin
The Branches of Sin are the powers each Deadman has, allowing them to use their own blood in order to use incredible powers, the likes of which can hardly be imagined by the average human. Usually, the Deadman can train his powers, to better understand how to use them or perhaps be more conservative with them; after all, if one were to use their powers too much, they may die of blood loss, a fate nobody wants. Various forms of this power exist, from creating blades to shooting ‘bullets’ to even making whips; who knows what sort of other powers may exist?
