* Academy City in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''. The city is famous for grooming powerful power users, but it also has a dark side. The "questionable" research that's done at the city leads to many story arcs in the anime, and is enough to for a complete spin off: ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun''. They're under international law, which apparently explains why this is considered "legal" there. The city is also far ahead of the outside world in terms of technology, and they have to use this to their advantage in order to make sure more unruly Espers (and powerful) don't go on a {{rampage}}. This may also fall under AcademyOfAdventure as Academy City is made up of dozens of different schools.
