Pioneer Support was a government agency set up to handle the affairs of emigrants when the US government was still encouraging people to colonize the Long Earth.[1]

People with special skills like Franklin Tallyman, the blacksmith of Reboot, could have money deposited in Pioneer Support.[2]

The agency also made sure your bank accounts and investment funds were running properly even if you were thousands of Earths away.[1]

The Long War

Pioneer Support was shut down in 2028, impounding all the savings of the pioneers living beyond Earth East 20 and Earth West 20 in the process.[3][4]
