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.
People with special skills like Franklin Tallyman, the blacksmith of Reboot, could have money deposited in Pioneer Support.
The agency also made sure your bank accounts and investment funds were running properly even if you were thousands of Earths away.
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.
