** The home port of Sham and the ''Medes'' is known as Streggeye, [[spoiler: aka Easter (egg) Island]], watched over from its summit in the upsky by statues of local gods known as the Stonefaces.
** Mention is made of lost worlds located above the upsky boundary, such as the Nuzland [[spoiler: (New Zealand)]] and Sowmerick [[spoiler: (South America)]].

* FutureImperfect: Justified, as this takes place ''thousands'' of years in the future ''as well as'' after a series of massive cataclysmic events (the sky becoming poisonous, aliens visiting Earth, the railsea being created), so it makes sense that nobody in the book really knows much about our time.

Even facts of geography have been twisted or forgotten, since [[spoiler: the railsea & the remaining habitable islands are located on the long dried-up ocean floor, while much of what was once above sea level is now covered by the poisonous fog of the upsky.]]

** There's one chapter where Sham is trainwrecked on a deserted island. Unconscious, he dreams about an alternate outcome for his current predicament, the plot outline of which appears to be a WholePlotReference for ''literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' .

* AlienGeometries: Played with: the [[spoiler:the single, straight rail that leads to Heaven]] wholly defies the basic logic of the railsea, but there's nothing actually ''unnatural'' about it.
