Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: One Foundation staff member (Representative A-1) has been designated the primary point of contact with SCP-XXXX. On the 4th day of each month at 9 am (UTC-6:00), this staff member is to lead a team into SCP-XXXX and document the results. All events within SCP-XXXX should be audio recorded and transcribed. Overt video and photographic recording is prohibited as its use causes entities within SCP-XXXX to react with irritation and suspicion. Clandestine recording requires Level 4 staff approval.

All staff members entering SCP-XXXX should be of Iranian ethnicity. They should be fluent in Farsi and possess comprehensive knowledge of Iranian culture and history, particularly of the Safavid dynasty (1501-1736). Representative A-1 should be a Level 3 staff member with experience in public policy, international law and diplomatic negotiation. Staff within SCP-XXXX are to identify themselves as representatives of the “Sublime State of Iran in Exile” (Group-A), a group known to SCP-XXXX entities prior to Foundation involvement. Appropriate documents and identification have been prepared for this purpose, and no materiel with Foundation information or insignia is to enter SCP-XXXX. Staff are advised not to consume any items within SCP-XXXX.

Personnel who enter SCP-XXXX require an additional briefing and memetic resistance screening conducted by the SCP-2155 research team. All documents making detailed reference to Group-H should be considered a memetic hazard and quarantined until their anomalous status can be determined.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a room in the basement of the house at 50 Adams St., ████████, Chicago, Illinois. The address was formerly the residence of Mr Ali Mirzakhani, a businessman and member of the Iranian community in Chicago. Since its acquisition by the Foundation in 2006, the building was given the designation Site-70, which eventually acquired both neighbouring houses. It is currently the site of activities relating to the containment and study of SCP-XXXX.

On the 4th day of each month, when an individual enters SCP-XXXX and closes the door behind them, an SCP-XXXX event will occur, where SCP-XXXX will take on the appearance of a conference room with a central table and seating for 40 people. A door also appears on the opposite side of the room to the entrance, through which entities enter and exit. A corridor is visible on the other side, but exploration attempts have met resistance from SCP-XXXX entities. While an event is in progress, establishing outside communication or access has been unsuccessful, and GPS tracking devices lose signal.

Between 20 and 40 humanoid entities will be present in SCP-XXXX, several with anomalous features. All identify themselves as representatives of groups belonging to the “Displaced Governments Cooperation Organisation”, or DGCO (SCP-XXXX-1), of which Group-A is a member. SCP-XXXX-1 appears to be a supranational organisation with the aim of promoting diplomatic, cultural and economic cooperation. Its language of operation is English, with translators present during an SCP-XXXX event. Its member groups describe themselves as governments which have lost control over most or all of their claimed national territory. Despite these circumstances, they claim to possess considerable financial and military resources (with access to both conventional and anomalous weaponry). The entities within SCP-XXXX frequently refer to locations, individuals and events for which no evidence has been found in baseline reality.

Thus far, 8 groups have been identified in SCP-XXXX.

While an SCP-XXXX event is in progress, Representative A-1 is to participate and gather intelligence without raising suspicion. They should also promote the exercise of restraint and conservatism in policy decisions. If they are asked to make significant policy decisions or SCP-XXXX entities have other queries with serious implications, they are advised to make diversionary statements and ask to revisit the issues at the time of the next event, so a course of action can be decided on in the interim with the input of senior staff. Retrieval of objects from within SCP-XXXX is a goal so long as it does not attract the attention of SCP-XXXX entities.
