Because it was the right thing to do my friend that is why the unease vanished. Even though these compound people if survive would over run and destroy the world , it was still the right thing to not let them starve.....

With regards to places in it, I think Shelding must be chesterfield. This is because it says the church there has a bent spire, just like in the real life chesterfield.
Also, I didn't get it at the end with Feargol in Uzamatte (America).

I thought he was trying to stop them from doing to America what they did to europe.
