Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Idk

Special Containment Procedures: The risk to secrecy formed by SCP-XXXX is minimal; any individuals exposed to its effect would, by nature of SCP-XXXX, already own anomalous objects, and thus be aware of the anomalous.

All publishing containing mention of any of the following must be investigated and evaluated by authorized personell:

  • Objects or people not being able to enter Belgium at any costs
  • Abnormal events occuring close to the belgian border
  • Goi activity surrounding Belgium

If it is determined that these events are caused by SCP-XXXX, MTF-Rho-34 are to immideatly intervene and seize any anomalous objects discovered.

By order of the O5 command and Ethics Commitee, any protocols with the intent of adjusting belgiums border by affecting international politics are strictly forbidden. Profiting off of border changes decided without Foundation or GoI influence however, is permitted.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon affecting the european nation bordering France, The Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg, known in english as Belgium.

Within known documentation not a single anomaly has originated within Belgium, despite the statistical average amount of anomalies/km^2 suggesting there should be ██ to ███ anomalies in the country.

Additionally, whenever an attempt to either create an anomaly or enter an anomaly into the country is performed, the action is stopped by an unrelated random series of events.

Suspicion of the possible existance of SCP-XXXX has already been present since the early 20th century, but the phenomenon was not documented until 1996, when data analysis surfaced the unusual lack of anomalies in Belgium.

There have since been many events attributed to SCP-XXXX, below are a number of the most noteworthy examples:

Addendum-XXXX-1: Marshall, Carter and Dark Ltd. involvement in SCP-XXXX

Marshall, Carter & Dark Ltd. has repeatedly attempted to influence belgian politics in order to make Belgium brake apart, and thus making anomalous trade easier for them.

The SCP Foundation has attempted each time to counteract their actions.

There has been clear evidence of M,C&D funding pro-BeNeLux groups, hoping they would unite Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg into a single country, this however failed.

In the 2010 election Marshall, Carter & Dark Ltd. heavily lobbied various groups, making it one of the causes of the 2010-2011 political crisis in Belgium, where politicians were not able to form a government for 355 days. Flanders very nearly seceded from Belgium during this crisis.

The SCP Foundation heavily sanctioned Marshall, Carter & Dark Ltd. for these actions.

(This is one where I still like the idea, but I feel like it heavily lacks in tone or substance, so if I were to add it back in I would probably completely rewrite it.)

Recovered document containing reference to SCP-XXXX

Document #193414, a diary from a soldier from the Belgian paranormal division during the first world war, references what is most likely SCP-XXXX, primarily the following pages, translated from dutch to english:

From here on the Soldier was going to be introduced to a large machine that was made to keep Anomalous weapons from the german's from entering the country, and about a battle where they succesfully stopped a number of Anomalous tanks from entering the country
